under regional and language settings it's determined wether or not to use , or . for the delimiter. cant D3 read those settings and use that?
11/02/2012 12:23 PMPosted by LylirraIsnt the game split into regions??? use the correct decimal style for the region...
It's actually not that simple, but fair suggestion even still.
(We are also considering spaces, yes.)
11/02/2012 01:22 PMPosted by terenceloarYou could automatically insert spaces... 1 000 000

For example, in various countries (e.g., China, India, and Japan), there have been traditional conventions of grouping by 2 or 4 digits. These conventions are still observed in some contexts, although the 3-digit group convention is also well known and often used.

You Sir, are a genious. I doubt it could be easier to solve than this.

Yeah.... no, Canada uses commas11/02/2012 12:24 PMPosted by SeraphiUmm only the USA uses decimials.. the rest of the world uses comma's.. so i would say use commas
Canada uses decimals as well (excluding Quebec, but they play by their own rules anyway)
The easiest solution, is to just have spaces. Everyone is happy.
One thing to keep in mind is that Diablo III is a global game, available in multiple regions around the globe. And, across those regions, the decimal style varies.
In the US, for example, decimals are identified with periods (ex: 1.23). Whereas in a lot of places in Europe, decimals are identified with commas (ex: 1,23). This means that a number like one million would look a bit different in each of those regions. In the US, it would look like "1,000,000" and in Europe it would look like "1.000.000".
So, which decimal style do we use? That question is actually one of the main reasons we chose not to include commas initially, since it could be confusing to players in other regions outside North America.
That said, we do agree that not having any method of breaking out values in the auction house isn't ideal, so we're currently discussing how best to address the issue (without hopefully creating MORE issues for players in other countries).

You can do that. But not all countries divide their numbers up in groups of 3's :) So you're kind of back at the same problem. For your edutainment:

11/02/2012 12:32 PMPosted by LylirraMany countries within those regions use different decimal styles, so unfortunately it's not as simple as making it "region-specific." Also, making a change apply to only one region and not another isn't always ideal or an available option.
