The thing I like about it is it makes room for some more interesting locations, I've wanted to cut the England bit from mine for a while but still say my no-where you've heard of is in the UK. Now I have room to put a little joke- maybe you'll get if you live in or have heard of Gateshead or Newcastle.

So great work thanks!

Your domain name ends in .uk - you get the .uk flag. Sorry.

It's the little touches like this that make the W fun. Nifty idea, Z.

Now, if I could only find an ISP based out of Strongbadia...

Nice idea, I do agree there could be a better place for them though... what about on the far top right of the post, opposite the "Instant rating?" That seems to be an empty space that is just the right size...

That spot is full up for the admins. It's where your IP address is on my screen.

Now if that were the case, we would have to be politically correct and add the flags for 'Deepest Darkest Africa', 'Outer Reaches of Your Mind', 'Last House on the Left', and of course the wonderful flag of 'Every Women's Fantasy.'

Also, I was real bored last night and quickly browsed through the first 10 or so pages on the wienerlist. Well I found one from Singapore, New Zealand, The Netherlands, A couple from Switzerland, and believe it or not one from Estonia (had to look that one up).

I was surprised I didnt find any from major Western European countries (France, Germany, Belgium, Spain) or Japan and South Korea. Also with numbers, there is a shitload of Brits who register and never post, if they did post, they might outnumber the Canadians.

OUCH

I guess the only way to separate the UKers would be to tracert the IPs rather than relying on the domain, and that sounds like it would be a bitch to code.

Is your IP address the only thing it looks at? For example if I post while I'm in Tokyo over spring break will I have a Japanese flag?

Yeah- I like it better there too. Where they were before was far too in your face. Really though- in 2 months the flags are going to be just another data bit that no one cares about, and it would be annoying to have them RIGHT THERE all the time...

And yes, I actually do get good ideas from time to time. No need to act so shocked ... :)

One of the major ISPs over here doesn't have the .au on their domain names, would that display as a US flag?
