    Happy Halloween belated tho' !

    It has been rather a bit uncomfortable for me to use the UK Flag against my profile all this while. The fact of the matter is I had to select one of the Flags when I enrolled on the assumption it had to do with a language or something of that sort. It is understandable that UK relates to English, but to add the British Flag on my profile page creates a definite misunderstanding as though I am from UK whereas I am from Canada.

    Guess I find there are so many other flags for purposes of translations, but to select the English flag does not mean the Union Jack must be added to my profile page. I am sure there are so many nations who speak English but the British Flag is not the correct answer on the profile page of that Member.

    I am from Canada and it would be great to see the Canadian Flag on my profile page instead of the UK Flag.

    Therefore, if the intention is to have a flag on the profile page of the Member then by all means, please provide all the Flags of the world for a Member to choose his country as that would be fair and colorful or else refrain from it totally and have it as it is for purposes of language selection exclusively and no flag is added on the profile page of the member.

    Please comment and explore a resolution. Thanks.

    P.S I am going post it on that Forum as well in case this is an inappropriate one !

    I think the FPA has been lured into an evil plot to allow the UK to reclaim all English speakers worldwide.

    FIGHT BACK! Display something besides the Union Jack!

    Do I have the option to remove the Union Jack off my profile and replace with the Canadian Maple Leaf ?

    I haven't found one yet. I'd like to put the Stars and Stripes on my profile.

    I've sent a note off to AsstMod so he can look into this. Of course, he might be part of the evil UK conspiracy. ;)

    I'm a terribly nice guy. Or is that a nicely terrible guy? I'm never sure. :)

    I brought this up with Felix and the Supreme Admin. The programmers are looking at what it will take to dig into Vbulletin and either remove the flags or give choices.

    Brilliant initiative to explore possibilities to either remove and/or give choices about flags. Ideally, it would be an excellent idea to add flags so members can be proud to add flags as they please, add color as well as reflect the world wide reach of FPA and members. I think we should add flags for members to choose from on to their profiles.

    Meanwhile, please assure the Programmers it will just cost them only a wee bit of an effort to add all flags using the same source and method similar to what is already existing. Thanks Asst Moderator.
