Localised sites such as pt.SO, ja.SO and ru.SO have been hidden from the Hot Network Questions list.

However, questions from rus.SE do appear, as has just occurred:

Can rus.SE also be excluded from the Hot Network Questions list?

    @user4098326 That's a feature request about not including the sites. This isn't a duplicate because this is a bug report regarding the feature that has been implemented. – grg May 24 '15 at 6:47

    I think you're conflating features. Localised SO sites may be excluded, but language learning sites like German Language, Japanese Language aren't. – muru May 24 '15 at 7:05

    @muru Those sites have English words in their question title and body and the UI is in English. The UI of rus.SE is not in English. – grg May 24 '15 at 7:07

    @grgarside Was that question linked to rus.stackexchange.com or russian.stackexchange.com? They're both the same, AFAICT, but rus.se is localised. – muru May 24 '15 at 7:09

    @muru rus.stackexchange.com. The 'link to question' is the destination of the link from the hot network questions in the sidebar. – grg May 24 '15 at 7:11

    @muru Nope, different sites. – Adam Lear May 26 '15 at 14:06

One of these days we'll make a checklist for all the different things we have to tweak when launching (or importing) a non-English site.

... but today is not that day.

Fixed, but it will take a bit for the hot questions cache to update and drop questions from rus.SE.

  • FWIW ¿Qué nombre recibe este sonido (o la acción de producirlo)? is in the hot list now - нехорошо? – gnat Jul 9 '15 at 22:46

    @gnat We don't exclude "language learning" sites on the assumption that most questions there will actually be in English, from people who are learning the language. – Adam Lear Jul 9 '15 at 23:05
  • I see, thanks! makes sense – gnat Jul 9 '15 at 23:06

    okay Anna, SO in Portuguese doesn't qualify as language learning site, correct? I ask because this question just leaked into Hot Network List and currently sits at #7 over there: finalidade de continue? em c – gnat Aug 13 '15 at 16:09
