Hi,
I don't know if this is possible (well, I know it's technically possible from a database programming point of view, but I don't know if it's considered desirable)...

When I go to the KudoZ page, right now I get a drop-down menu asking me for the one language combination I want to view questions for. What I'd like is a way to use checkboxes instead, or a multiple selection using CTL perhaps, so that I can view, say, Chinese>English AND English>Chinese questions at once, without having to view the other language combinations I'm signed up for.

I guess the point is that for those with more than one language listed as a working language, we might not want to "play KudoZ" in all those combinations either ever or on any given day. I work in Spanish but I'm not very good with Spanish terms so I don't usually play in Spanish, but I occasionally drop in and look at the Chinese questions in both directions if work is a bit boring that day. It would be faster and easier to be able to view all the combinations I want to see at one time.

Don't know if anyone else would support that or not, but I thought I'd make the suggestion.
