No, it’s not a bad pickup line — it’s the hot new question WordPress.com is asking you. We’ve been amazed with the international pickup of WordPress.com, and we want to enable some more features for those users.
As a first step were letting people self-classify the primary language of their blog. So for example if you blog mostly in Chinese, you would choose that as your blog’s primary language.
You can set your blog’s primary language under Options in your blog admin. We’re also collecting this data from new signups.
In the future we’ll use this data to create unique top blog lists, top posts lists, tag clouds, and more on a per-language basis.
In the future we’ll investigate different language forums, and actual translation of WordPress.com and the backend interface. All in good time.
