Language of Writer's Block Answers

Language of Writer's Block Answers

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow opt-in to read Writer's Block answers only in certain languages / alphabets.

Full description of the idea
Would be possible to have an option where LJ users can opt to view on Writer's block answers in certain alphabets / languages? For example, I have absolutely no way of reading the Cyrillic alphabet, (and suspect the reverse is true for many lj-ers) and having to scroll through pages and pages of answers I can't read puts me off engaging with the service.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Will encourage greater engagement with this aspect of livejournal
  • Opt-in approach means bi and mulitilingual users could still read in multiple languages if the wished.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • May be impossible to filter answers based on language as opposed to characters.
  • May cause problems if people have posted in a more than one alphabet in that post.
