Hi dear RoboRumble-runners! I'd really really like to have a flag. I wrote to countryflags on the old wiki, but nobody has answered for weeks or months. Is it possible to add flags to new requesters? Here is the direct link to save time. :P [1] --HUNRobar 19:19, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

It is said that Darkcanuck doesn't visit the wiki, try email him. It's darkcanuck81 (at) g mail (dot) com.

Thanks darkcanuck, I have flag at last! :) --HUNRobar 16:20, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Darkcanuck, a suggestion to make things easier for you (and your server!) in the future: create a folder of country flags named by two-letter country code (US, DE, GR, RU, ...) and associate each username with a particular flag, ideally on a particular (editable!) page on the wiki, like the participants page is now. Then whenever someone wants to set their nationality, they can do it on the wiki, and your server can grab a copy of the page daily or semi-daily to get everyone's country. Then, instead of having multiple copies of the same flag over and over your server can have one of each flag, saving load time and upload bandwidth. -- Synapse 02:48, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Because someone may want a special flag (see ap package, which nationality are they?). I don't know, this maybe better and need a lot more works, current way I believed is just drop an image named with the package name and all will work. And by setting ErrorDocument directive in .htaccess (server is Apache, detected by Server: HTTP response header) to blank image, the non-existence image will be served using blank flag. » Nat | Talk » 03:16, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
New users show up so infrequently that the current way (manual updates) is much easier... But if the community ever expands like wildfire, I'll look into something like this. --Darkcanuck 21:30, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
