So I have to select all the languages I don't understand to filter them from my feed? Wouldn't opting in to specific languages be an easier filtering UI?

@Alisca Hm, I agree. Are the filters supposed to apply to followed users in addition to local/federated timelines?

@Alisca Ha, OK, if it is account-based filter, rather than a message-based filter, that's a different issue. The "followed-user filtering" use case I was thinking about was following a multilingual user, and only displaying messages in specified languages.

@Alisca Excuse me, but I can't filter the language I don't understand like Japanese on the fed TL, either. What do you mean, haven't specified a language in their account? can I do that?

@Alisca @arrow

There's an open issue about this in the github (github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/), we can only hope a solution is on the way!

@Alisca yeah, I also checked the language setting. It just didn't work.

Guess so. lol
