Ticia, for the flags that are too detailed to be identifiable in that size, is it possible to add some kind of alt tags to the coding, so that when you hover over the image with your cursor you get a text box with the name of the state/country?  I know how to do it in html (you just add alt="CountryName" to your image tag) but I don't know if the board's format allows it? (ETA: It happens when you hover over the orange "new" image next to a thread title, so I think it's supported, but I'm not sure what the coding would be.)

Or am I making things too complicated?

Thanks for all the flags, it's nice to see them starting to pop up around the board.

hardia: I have no idea how to do that, but if someone wants to figure it out and let us know, that'd  be cool.

I had some concerns, doing flags that aren't country/state/location only, like the Christian or the Rainbow flags, but I figure that these are a way to give information about the person posting. If someone identifies with a certain flag, I don't see a problem with it. As long as people don't start fights over flags, we should be just fine.

Is it possible to put the flag in the sidebar of our profile, rather than in the signature?  The size makes it hard to see when it's on the far-right side of the screen.

Lisbeth: I experimented before I ever offered to do them, because I was curious about that too, but I  never did figure out a way to make it work. Sorry!

Thanks.  I'm sorry it didn't work, but what we've got is neat!

May I request a South Carolina flag, please? Thanks so much for doing this for us! :)

What have you got? Is it food? Is it for me? I want it whatever it is!

Ok, the flag idea is cute, but why do some posters have multiple flags? I might understand 2 if you're an expat (although it'd be nice if you said which is which) but how does location help others at all if you have 3 flags and no one knows where you actually live? And now state flags? Unless they're labeled, people aren't going to know that's not another country... It doesnt seem very useful in those cases.
Wherever you go.... there you are.

That's what I'm confused about...wouldn't it be easier to simply say the state you're from underneath? [Or province, or region...]

And I don't get the multiple flags either...I certainly don't know them all. :D

They are really cool, though!
