Hi Guys,

I hope you can help me. I am looking for a permament link to the english STO website. Everytime when I enter http://sto.perfectworld.com or http://startrekonline.com, I get automatically redirected to http://sto.de.perfectworld.eu. I have then to correct the language manually. This annoys the Hell out of me. Why? Well, let's face it: Just like in the TV Series, the german translations of the Game and the Website are just plain horrible and sometimes real BS. That's the reason, why I play the game in english and visit the english website. It's because of the accuracy.

So, can anyone help? And yes, I submitted a ticket, but you Guys are usually faster with such things. Big Grin

I assume the website is picking up your location and redirecting you. There might be a way to trick it, though off the top of my head I don't know. I'd say look for an extension you can install to the browser that will trick websites into thinking you are in america.

Doh! Why didn't I thought of that? Thanks Attilio. Just installed the "Manual Geolocator" for Chrome and set my location to Hampton Roads. Seems to work. Big Grin

Unfortunately, today it turned out that the Manual Geolocator don't work with either the STO Website nor YouTube. I'll wait for PWE's answer then.
If you really REALLY can't wait, then try this -

- get a browser that you like, but maybe not as much as the one you're using now.
- find a list of UK or US proxy servers, a google (or other search engine!) will get it for you
- set up the second browser to access the net through the proxy

use this other browser for the STO website. You're a smart chap so I don't think I need to go in to the 'how' with this.

If you want to use it for anything that requires good speeds, it might not be the best - I used things like this from Finland and Austria to watch the Olympic fencing Smile. The best way for speedier ones is to check the list each time, as some will perform better than others.
