weblin now shows you the user's origin

weblin is growing faster and faster and lots of weblins meeting on websites are from different countries. The have to find out first, in which language they can chat. In the last few weeks so many international weblins met on YouTube, myspace or facebook and sometimes they wondered why other weblins did not reply. The reason was not disrespect – some weblins did not understand - simply because they did not speak the same language.
To solve the problem, weblin build up a tiny new feature for you. Go to your weblin profile and choose your flag. The flag is displayed near your avatar. Now you can easily find out which language others speak and you will have more fun with your weblin!
