**NEW FEATURE**International Members Country Flag**
I had a thought cross my mind today in regards to our international members.
Seeing that we have many international members on our board, I thought I'd make it easier to identify them and show where they're from, as sometimes members do forget to update their location details and as such it is hard to know where they're located.
This is when the idea of adding a country flag as part of their ranking came to mind.
The flag will be located under the user's name like this:
This process is manual from my end, as a new user will not be allocated any flag when they first join the forum and only if I know where they're from, I will be able to allocate the country flag to their username, so it is VERY important for all international members to list their location either in their profile or as part of the introduction post they make.
I have edited as many international member's username profile as I could find based on their introduction posts and allocated the country flags accordingly.
In doing so, I was totally amazed to find out that we have 24 countries represented on our from from all over the world and they're:
(Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, UK, USA, Indonesia, Argentina, Philippines, South Africa, El Salvador, Spain, Brunei Darussalam, Russia, Egypt)
I probably missed a couple as well which I'll find later LOL
Here you go. What an international forum ours is!!!
I have also assigned the Aussie flags to myself and Noel as Admins of this forum.
I initially wanted to assign the Aussie flag to all local members, but doing so proved very hard to manage, as I would have to change it to each and every one of you manually, so the default setting remains unchanged and with that, if no flag is assigned to your username, you're considered Australian
Please feel free to point me to any international members username if they haven't been updated and I will do so straight away.
