Flag Icons

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

To show where we're from.

I thought it might be kool if there were flag icons next to ppls name to show where they are from. Here's some examples of what I mean: Nationality Idea #1 Nationality Idea #2 I s'pose this would have to be worked into the "Location" part of ppls profiles. Anyone think this would be good? Matt.

    Yeah it would be great! But be sure to enable an option to show or hide these for protective reasons and it would be ready to go!

    I think it'd be a better idea to add a new field named "Nationality" to the profile description. Adding flags to posts wouldn't be useful in my opinion and because you can't add all the flags of the world to it, probably some members will not be able to select the flag of their country. If this was implemented, for posts or for profiles, i think there should also be an "anonymous country" flag for the ones who like to keep their identity private.

    Another idea could be having instead of the flags and when you mouseover it, it displays ppls "Location" info from their profiles in a small tooltip. The main reason I suggested this is because in a lot of threads you see people saying things such as "In my country......" and "Where I live........" and it's hard to know where they are talking about without either asking them or going to their profile. Matt.

    I think the username can be cluttered enough as it is with upics, dots, edit, quote, arrow and whatnot. Your profile has a location field so you can put your address. Maybe there can be a field for other things like flag or nationality as well. I just think adding more to the username area is getting out of hand.

    I think it is a good idea. I have seen a few threads asking where people are from and also like Matt said people put things in their thread that have some things to do with laws. Knowing where they are from will make it easier to understand.

    Well to make it so people do not put whatever country they feel. Make a drop down list in the profile instead of typing in.

    But then they would have to compile a huge list of all countries from everywhere. though now that i think about it, you can get packs of flags and country lists. so maybe it will work then.

    It's a good idea, but I think I would like to be able to turn it off and on now and again. Why? Once I've learnt where everyone is from because I cba to go their profiles right now, I won't see any point to it now. Also, I believe it will just be a little annoyance. Either way, I support you. :)

    People are proud about their homelands and love to show it. I would have to automatically detect each member's country to prevent abuse, otherwise half of FPSB would choose Kazakhstan.
