This site all of a sudden redirects to the website's version of my country's language. In this version I don't see any questions/posts (because there aren't any).

I don't want that!!!

I Always want to see the English (default) version.

Please developers can you fix this. This is unwanted behaviour.

* EDIT: HAVE OTHER PEOPLE EXPERIENCED THIS AS WELL? *

UPDATE:

Thanks for your replies. I'll just have to get used to typing the correct URL (with language) then.

I would however appreciate a "language selector" to easily skip to another language as user RGB-es suggested.

There is one thing the site can (must?) do and it is to add a "language toolbar" (like the one on the wiki) to help navigation between different languages.

I visit the English, Spanish and Italian site (almost) regularly and that means that I need to either use three different bookmarks for what it is essentially one site or edit the url each time I need to change from one language to the other.

Yes, I am redirected too.

Of course you can just bookmark https://ask.libreoffice.org/en

And in Firefox, you can set your preferred language for websites.

I suppose there's nothing broken; possibly your language's section was added to the site, and thus began to be correctly redirected to. There's nothing to fix in the site configuration; if you prefer another language's version, please follow @Gilward Kukel's advise and use either direct bookmark, or change browser preferences wrt preferred site's language. The new localized section cannot be expected to contain any content from the start; and it's incorrect to expect that all users prefer English to their native language, so your preference should be considered a special case.
