So per Polantis's suggestion I'm splitting this post into its own topic for discussion. For reference the following is the original post.

All, with the surge of new players there are a few things to remind members of the team/den. Any of these infrastructures could lead to your account being investigated and subsequent ban. However, it can also lead to all of us getting banned too. Things to avoid:

Naming your character inappropriately, This means any profane words, but it also means names that are repetitive/sequential characters

Speaking English in a setting where you don't explicitly know players (local and party chat etc)

Harassing other players

Utilizing macros or turbo controls

Altering game files

Failure to observe common courtesy in Japan. That means failure to respond to cheers with "arigatou" and yoroshikuonegashimasu. Failure to use honorifics such as san and sama when addressing players you don't know or have not been authorized to address without such honorifics. Utilizing the proper kana/kanji

To the common American MMO player some of this may seem extreme, but it's not in Japan. If you don't understand these guidelines then ask. We in the team are there to assist each other. Ultimately, when you break these rules you risk our accounts too, so we all have a personal stake in abiding to these rules.

In addition to all this, there is a tendency we have to abbreviate or shorten words. If you wish to refer to the Japanese people or community, please, use “JP”. There have been times when “Jap” has been utilized in a derogatory manner. Please, refrain from this. We want to be encouraging and uplifting, so in all things we should treat people with dignity and respect.

Digging for personal information and more so doing it in a public space (team and party chat are examples of public space) feels incredibly invasive. Please, if you want a chance to get to know someone ask them if you can friend them and talk there.

Joining groups  is a big part of dqx and we have lots of various group activities. If you want to go with someone (such as on their weekly trials) ask! It’s a slight delay, but that consideration means a lot to people, myself included.

Saying 「よろしくおねがいします」prior to engaging a boss in parties where you were put together via matchmaking is  something a  majority Of Japanese players do. My guess as to why it is said thanks for the attempt ahead of time because if you wipe you will no longer be in a party with them.

Lastly, on the note of friending someone you’ve never talked to, and subsequently not asking if it’s ok to friend them is considered highly inappropriate. I’ve turned down a few friend requests for this very reason.

Yes, this is a game and meant to be fun. However, don’t ruin someone else’s fun by doing these things.

It's fun when someone has a stick up their butt to reach down there and wiggle that stick. Especially if someone is demanding sama.

That's not really a stick up their butt sort of thing. For example, in my family it displays your mindset whether use the honorific or not. When you use the honorific you're more likely to listen and respectful to others.

If I was given gold every time you misspelled Polantaris's name, I would never be broke in-game.

 

We need to make this happen.  I'm a broke bish.

I'm going to throw in two cents and say that unless another player is a well-known god among players then using -sama with them can be seen as a bit extreme. Using -san is perfectly respectful to both friends and strangers alike, but using -sama might actually make you stand out more. You're pretty much putting that person in the same category as a king or a god.

Nay, in the mmo world I myself have on occasion been called "God" "God-like" "Monster" and even "Alex-Sama".  But to earn that, usually you have to have best in slot gear, have had server/world firsts, ridiculously high achievement score, and be known and also proven to be the best at your class and role.  Had it happen in WoW class being Paladin, Role Tank. Had it happen, twice, in XIV, Tank, but had all classes at max level, millions of gil, can efficiently and effectively use 5 of the classes and outplay on said 5 classes against those who been playing those classes up to 10x longer than I have, and generally also cuz of FC notoriety. 

 

Only time I ever seen "master" or any of the above otherwise is in the act of roleplaying.

So quick question about this. If someone is standing next to you and it's clear they're talking to you but you don't explicitly know them would talking in English be a huge problem? I get that shouting or doing some sort of zone chat would be a no-no.

I just put on the "no keyboard" and "solo play" flags and ignore any attempts at communication in JP, since I'm not capable of responding.

Thanks, I'll have to figure out how to flag myself.

Edit: I WAS ABLE TO FIGURE IT OUT... sorry for any inconveniences!! For future reference, if anyone is curious just go to  (さくせん) in the menu (bottom right i think), and then in the left column there should be an option that says (キャラ設定), and in there select (いまどんな?設定), and there's a bunch of boxes with flags that can be checked off!! 

I'm very new to DQX, and I was just curious on how to set flags? This topic is like the only place I can find any mention of it. While trying to find it, I accidentally hit something and now the little icon bubble is flashing a green friend icon and I am worried. Just like merph518 mentioned, I want to be able to just set no keyboard and solo play flags. If anybody has figured it out/could let me know it'd be huge help.

Edited initial post to include asking  to be friend, getting to know people more personally and saying, 「よろしくおねがいします!」before bosses.

How’d you expect to ask someone to be your friend if you’ve literally never spoken to them before?  I struggle with this, and sometimes I’ve just pulled the trigger anyways and people have still accepted me even while they’re like level 96 and I’m just starting off at level 12.

Well, I can only insert text in the Wii version so far, anyway.
