Ok folks, bringing more functionality to the users of Yesfans I am happy say that you can nowproudly display you countries flag in your posts. You can go into your profile and scroll to the bottom to input you country name.

You simple type in your countries name.

example (note the lower/upper case)

Canada
United States
Japan


Any misspelling or using all lower case will make it NOT WORK.

For you state side folks STATE flags coming soon!

Great Tim. It's nice to know where people are from sometimes, especially if you want to make links or connections for some reason. As this a new feature Tim I reckon it should be a sticky so that people can see it more frequently.

Don't know if I like this. Don't wanna be bashful here, but it is only the USA that can have those state flags to me.. This is a world wide site remember?? Keep it to the USA flag I'd say. That's ok..

JJ there is the option for COUNTRY flags also in your profile. Yes this isa worlld site and I am trying to cater to all. The "Flag" hack as this is called is only avail in country flags and State flags. I would be a hell of a task for me to track down every flag for every place wit in a country if it avail. This hack took HOURS to get up and going, ha ha ha ha. And I see some folks are already not following directions. I see some site flags are not displaying because the person did not input it in ALL CAPS!

I know that Canada has provinces, and I assume there are flags associated with the provinces. And pardon my ignorance, but do other countries have states? I thought that was unique to the United States. Hence, the name of the Country.

JJ, in your profile you can ONLY put in your countries flag. You can not put in a providence flag. The software is not set up that way and to my knowledge it is not avail. I could do it, but then I open a can of worms where I add one here, one there and that is a ton of work. To add a special flag for one person would take me 15 minutes to do. Sure that does not seem like alot but multiply that by MANY Members that are on this site. I would pull my hair out!

UNDISCLOSED is defaulted in for exisiting members at the time I put this up. You just type in the country your in. Again, Countries are spelled with With Capital first letters and for the USA folks the state flags are ALL CAPS, if two word state, all caps together like, NORTHCAROLINA If you want nothing in there tyou will type Undisclosed.
