Because this is such a region-specific site, I have added flags for both your country and your state/province/area. This should help the newbies a lot. I'm pretty sure I have all that would be applicable here (if I've missed any, tell me and I'll try and get them).

You can change your flags by going into User CP > Edit Your Details.

I am requesting that you ONLY use the flag of the area that you are actually from. This is a completely optional profile field, and if I catch you using a flag from an area where you aren't from, you'll get an infraction point and lose your flag-displaying privileges (or I'll change it permanently to your home country, whichever I see fit).

Feedback please.

AWESOME!
IS THERE A CHECHEN ONE?!

May 19th, 2009, 10:37
I mean, not that I would use the Chechen one.

Trivial
May 19th, 2009, 10:40
Ali, I give you a special exemption to use the Chechen one.

Damn it, why can't it still be 1998 when Chechnya still had full autonomy?
But anyway, I do like the flags. I am a bit of a flag/geographic freak anyway.

That being said, what state is that flag, Trivial?

Trivial
May 19th, 2009, 10:47
Tennessee. I'll add a Chechen flag.

Make sure the Chechen flag is geographically correct, so Russia will be primary, and Chechen flag will be the secondary province flag.

Is the flag for the country you were born in, country you were raised in, the country that you have a passport for or the country you have permanent residency in?

Trivial
May 19th, 2009, 11:00
For the purposes of this, whichever country and region you applied to the JET Program through.

So Mothy applied through St. Kitts? Wouldnt that be difficult as they dont even have a Japanese embassy there?

This flag thing is pretty cool. We'll wear our badges proudly and mark out territories. Clan wars will ensue! :D

If you want to see what country/state/province they've selected, you can click on their profile and it will display the information.

Is it possible to have it display the state/region/country or whatever just by hovering your mouse over the flag?

If not, it's cool, but I think that would be neat.

right click, properties, look at the file name

Trivial
May 19th, 2009, 11:44
I probably could do that, but I don't want to edit alt text and stuff. If I can find a way to do it with a couple of lines of code, I will.

Yea I think this exercise would quickly become annoying if it became an exercise in identity politics.

Your great granny might have been Icelandic. That wasn't what we were asking/caring about.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Please use your country of citizenship.

Dammit there goes my chance to display the Eagle Eating the Snake on the Cactus to go with my badass shoulder tattoo of La Virgin de Guadalupe.

We're going to be adding new flags in the future too that you can use in lieu of your state/province, like sports teams and what not.

If you have a sports team or some other local icon that you'd like to use as your secondary flag, please make it in a 32x20 pixel format with a black border. To give an example, I've created an All Blacks flag for our wonderful Kiwis (sorry for butchering it, but it's hard to draw things when they're that small). It's active, so feel free to use it! (it's under Regions > nz allblacks)

New Orleans Saints!

Yes! Jolly Roger. Woo!

I almost put Texas down for my stage flag. (I am, afterall, Texan.) But since I applied from Georgia and may be representing Columbus, GA --especially if I'm placed in or near Kiryu... I went with Georgia.

My Texas pride is twitching, but I'll get over it. :P

Trivial
May 19th, 2009, 16:43
The Saints and Jolly Roger are now located under "us saints" and "pirate".

Saitaman, read the formatting requirements, shrink it, and make it look good and I'll post it.

It should be at the bottom of the list

Does it really matter if someone uses a flag that's not where they're from? Do you really have to be that anal? What's next, we have to use real names? Say what school we teach at? I mean I'd like to use the flags just for decoration, or fun, or whatever, but I really don't need another thing that would allow anyone to identify me as being me.

Trivial
May 19th, 2009, 23:53
Just the country flag -- the other one is for decoration. I'll put almost anything you want in there -- a custom job.

mothy
May 20th, 2009, 00:03
What does it matter what country I'm from? It's a dumb rule. I guess it's no big deal to me, after the initial novelty wore off I don't really care if I have a flag on there or not... But seems like you're creating a lot of work for yourself and being kind of mod nazis.

Yes I did just pull out a nazi reference in hyperbole. I'm ready for my televised debate.

mothy - When you have your own forums, you can add flags and make the "it doesn't matter where you're from, you can put whatever you want" rule, but it's Trivial's site, and he can do whatever he wants, since he's ultimately paying for it.

mothy
May 20th, 2009, 19:29
Oh really? Gee thanks for telling me that. I totally thought this was my site. I was wondering why I couldn't ban anybody. I'll try to keep my opinion on a rule, out of threads about that rule.

Trivial
May 20th, 2009, 22:15
Thanks for the support HeartNana, but I actually do appreciate feedback, even if it is negative; it was actually Mothy's initial criticism that made me rethink the whole region flag and allow people to use custom images for that.

And mothy, Godwin's Law, damnit.

It wouldn't be up for long. I'd ban myself for being a cocksucker.

can we get these flags too? Might be nice to set the alternate flag as your prefecture, not that anyone knows the flags, we could all learning together!

Ruairi

damn fine idea

Tarquin

Trivial
May 22nd, 2009, 06:06
Sure thing.

But I'm not going to make them for people who don't want them.

So make your own prefecture flag with 32x20 pixels, and I'll throw them up on the site.

The Minnesota flag for the USA is actually royal blue, not turquoise. Just FYI.

Yea my two flags should have the same background!

But being too lazy to do something about it myself that's the way it stays.

I hereby give mothy permission to sport whatever damn flag he wants
