So I live in a country where the German language is prevalent. Personally I'm bilingual, I speak German as well, but I prefer English, because it's making one more compatible with the rest of the world. I guess it's like English being TCP / IP and German being some proprietary protocol that only a handful of obscure devices understand.

When I logged in to this website today, based on my IP address, the backend assumed that I wanted to read all texts in German, which I didn't.

What I dislike most about is that the backend uses information about me (my IP address) to make assumptions. I consider this quite rude, please change that.

Actually, I think this is a bug - I'm in the UK and I got the support page in German - weird.

Glad it's not just me then.

I get the support part of the site comes up in German.
I live in Australia, and i'm not German. :p

I've tried changing the country settings on the pasge, and it remains.

Someone might want to have a look at this.

I'm US military stationed overseas. While we have foreign IP addresses (Japan, Germany, etc) we still require english. I am not that bright to learn another language.

Also it's not necessary. Virtually everyone speaks English today.
