For example, I notice that neither Old or Middle English show up correctly on anyone's profile page. They appear find in the UCP, but only show up as a flag with no text on the profile page.
I open this to the floor because, as I've said in the past, I'm not a programmer of any kind, and would not begin to know how to fix this in the repository.

I was just thinking today it might be nice to just have a form of sorts in which you can add the information manually yourself. I know people tend to ask all the time for languages to be added or changed all the time. (Well, they were doing it quite frequently anyway.) Not to mention some of the list is broken anyway (both functionally, and also some languages on it).
For example, we could have something where you can have boxes for:
Language Name (in English), the Native name (if they wanted to use it), their proficiency, and maybe a fourth box for notes or whatever.
I know part of the reason we had the list was to help people search for other users that spoke/were learning said language, but that function seems to be unusable ATM, and I'm not sure it will be again.
IDK, what do you guys think?
