For those who have become annoyed by MySpace defaulting to Ireland for the main site (ex: link at the top, Irish flag, etc), you just have to change your Preferred Site & Language.

To do so, follow these steps (it takes not even 30 seconds):

  1. Log in (dur)
  2. Click “Home” in the upper-left hand part of the part to return to your home page (where you see if you have new messages, comments, etc).
  3. Underneath where it says “Welcome, [YOUR NAME]!“, right below Edit Profile, there’s a link that says Account Settings; click that. (Or you can try clicking this link to jump right to the page.)
  4. Now scroll down, and the second to last option is Preferred Site & Language and it has a drop down menu to the right. Click the drop down menu and select – English (or whatever your preferred site/language is).

That’s it, you’re done!

While you’re there, you might as well adjust your Time Zone setting if you haven’t done so already. I notice that a lot of people have goofy times on the messages in the inbox and comments and bulletins because they never set it to their correct time zone.

That’s all for this installment, kids!
