    I think just having an option to select your national flag to be displayed below your username would be cool. Anyone else like the idea?

    You have my support, Jimlaad, but I also understand if it is too much of a hassle for the staff to implement. :thumbsup:

    If you get a Quali Place, you can get a Race Pace

    I like that idea too, and also the possibility of two flags for dual-nationality :thumbsup:

    This would require a forum modification that is currently not supported, and as it ads very little to none to the functionality its not very likely that its going to happen.

    Would have a big impact on the loading speed of pages as well as every image has to be requested per page load.

    Simple solution is to drop a little flag in your avatar.

    Far simpler than our solution would need to be.

    You can't just add a flag over it, and delete the "invisible" part of the avatar?

    Read what was posted please,

    The only solution is to do it yourself and add a little flag to your own avatar image,

    I'm not ruling it out outright, but it's not just a case of slapping an image in place. Currently people only choose a timezone not a country, so that information needs a place to be collected and then stored. The template system and the postbit builder needs modding and appropriate caching put in place. Finally, I have to choose which countries to put in a list for your selection, followed by complaints that 'small principality I never heard of existed' is missing and the usual 3 week argument I have with Bram about why I'm English not United Kingdomish :D

    Tbh at the moment I'm working on something that potentially involves similar functionality so there's a chance it might make a showing anyway but all in all my todo list is absolutely huge atm and this would not sit in a priority slot.

    So in principal yes, maybe at some point down the road it will fill a slow Saturday morning but at the moment I can't promise anything or commit the time to it.

    It's just an idea that I'm fine tuning. Put it this way, I have absolutely no idea how to code something like that, so I appreciate that it may be hard.

    Not hard per se. there's just some things that need to be approached in a proper way in order to prevent a return to the heavily modded, slow, and somewhat buggy, days of the old vBulletin installation.

    As for the idea though, in principal yes I do like it. I just can't commit to it atm.
