List section doesn't show Chinese language instances on

I notice there’s problem in

The instance list section can only search English and Deutsch language. If I want see some other language such as Chinese(中文), it simply shows nothing.

I can say it is really a thing, I already received many complains about it. It is not so easy for beginner to find a Chinese language instance.

Hope this can be fixed soon.

It seems to me that non of the Chinese instances declared “zh” as their primary language there, strage.

You can see raw data at

For example, this instance

explicitly says it uses German (“de”)

The administrator of the instance should have a chance to change the list of languages.
