You can select your Country Fag in your profile now... for some reason it showing two on some people. I will figure that out later... so it works for now... sorta.

I just noticed that, another feature added :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

I've also noticed that it is possible to select the 1st line which is blank instead of a country (displays "00" as shown on mine) which is nice to be able to choose as well, but if the blank choice was at the end of the list it might aid the Mods in determining when spammers join up and just select the 1st option, which if it is blank, they could get confused with those who are genuine members who prefer not to have a flag displayed.

Poor Eric must be pulling out what's left of his hair. I just left a message about the emticons. BTW I mentioned you in that message.  :lol:

Thanks for sorting the flags out, Eric. They seem to be doubled, but that's of no significance.

I can't work out if Tim (Spuddevans) has opted to stick with the red cross because he's in Northern Ireland, and it strongly resembles the Cross of St Patrick.

Actually I selected to have no flag (I'm not really into the whole displaying a flag thing, I dont mind others havin them though, it's just a little quirk of mine) on Firefox all I see is a "00" instead of a flag, I guess on other browsers you get other symbols.

Perhaps I could make a request for a non-flag "flag" to added to the list, maybe just a smiley face or sumthin' ?

eh .... I'm in the queue before you!    :poke:

Since joining, I have had to put a union flag as there's no Three Legs of Man.  Having to use the union flag for my nation as a Manxman is a bit like asking an Aussie or a Canadian to use the union flag. At the time I joined though, Eric did check and said that the flags were part of the BBS software and he couldn't amend them.

However, when it comes down to it, I certainly feel that Eric does so much for us here at MM that sailing under a 'flag of convenience' is no great burden!

More to the point - whilst we probably agree that MM is a state of mind, maybe there's also a nascent virtual state -
so maybe we should be looking for nationhood for MM and when Eric gets a forum logo, we can also use it as our flag of choice! - or maybe just fly  :nrocks:

I find the flag to be a quick method of seeing where the member is located which makes it a bit easier when trying to assist them with a query. I can't see the reason for not displaying a flag as it is nothing more than an idea of where you may be and not your political or religious view.

As stated by Pete, that is the first place I look when a post seems difficult to understand as it brings me back to reality that not all of us use english as our native language as this is truly an international group. It also helps me interrupt what they may be saying when I realize this.  Again it humbles me as their english is a LOT better than my ??? that is their native language. :bang:
