 OSM attract more and more users... and it's a good thing.

 To keep those users active, and to attract new users, it's nice to have
 more "social" or community features inside the osm website.

 Sometimes, you detect new user in your area, and you want to invite them
 to your community event or to do some remarks about the mapping... but you
 don't know the language of the user... so you start by English with one or
 to other languages depending of the country.

 I live in Belgium where in small country you can find French, dutch and
 German as official language...

 so please, could we add an indication about user's language(s) in his/her

 Something like :


 %Username% prefer to be contacted in %LANG%. You can also use %LANG%,
