Now WP.com offers a very nice service, and its a good way to set up a free wordpress blog. Naturally, for security reasons, there are limits on the codes we can post, and individual users cannot upload plugins on their own. This makes sense, and I would expect nothing less. That being said, the inability to do so presents somewhat of an obstacle, as certain valuable tools for blog promotion and enhancement are not pre-installed. Thus, I am requesting the installation of all of the following add-ons:
1) Footer links. Most of the useful ones can be found: http://3spots.blogspot.com/2006/02/30-social-bookmarks-add-to-footer.html
2) Since proper Feedburner support is needed, please install the following officially recomended hack for optimum results: http://orderedlist.com/articles/wordpress-feedburner-plugin/
3) In order to reach a more global audience, we must have the following: http://blog.taragana.com/index.php/archive/wordpress-plugin-automatic-machine-translation-for-your-blog-in-eight-languages-spanish-french-german-portuguese-italian-japanese-korean-and-chinese/
Obviously there are other add-ons of merit too, though I feel that everybody here would benifit from the above, and thus, unlike many mods, there would be little reason not to install them.
Should the number of buttons available in part one appear to be overkill, might I suggest considering the following: http://www.maxpower.ca/sociable/2006/01/26/
