Instead of putting a flag right beside someone's profile page could you just say the name of the country.Mainly because there kind of
hard to see on some computers(like mine)and also because I'm not quite sure which flag goes to which country.

On AG2, rolling over a flag reveals what it's for. I think if AG3 shows flags, it should still have a hover pop-up saying what the flag represents.

I don't think that's the flag he meant. He meant the country flags on profiles.

I think the flags are cool, but the country names would be nice. Maybe there could be both?

That's what I was talking about. What makes you think I was talking about the flag for spam?

Oh. Mybad. Well, it does sort of say 'flag this' when you scroll over the spam flag :b

Thank you, never would have known that. Again, my apologies.

This i agree with, i live in Northern Ireland so my flag politically is the union jack (Great Britain's flag), however i am Irish, so i keep it as the Irish flag - It'd be good if there were both to be more specific.

There aren't even flags in AG3 as far as I'm aware, when you go to details it says "(user) is a (age) year old (gender) in the (country)".

Yeah, we haven't added the flag icons yet, as far as I know. If we do, we'll add the country name as a tooltip if you hover over it. Unfortunately it won't be a custom option to choose your flag. We do a GeoIP lookup based on your last known IP address, and choose an appropriate flag.
