I was thinking that there has to be more posters in Japan and was looking at the Wiener...I mean W-List and I am curious, it is possible to search by country for the users. I know the Zims can, it would be interesting to say the least. Has someone ever posted from unusual places such as Afghanistan, or Iceland? Just curious.

This is a pretty good idea. I think I'll probably code a new page for this, though, so it may take a while.

Puerto Rico's a country?

With that in mind, would it be too big of a pain in the ass to have individual state flags for the US Ws?

Puerto Rico is a top-level domain - .pr

Yes, as states do not show up (usually) in hostnames.

That is just awesome! I wonder if the lone W from China that is inactive right now was squashed by his government for corralling with the likes of us...

Not to sound like an ass here, but who thought up Libya's flag, and what were they thinking?

The CIA knows all:

" Flag Description: plain green; green is the traditional color of Islam (the state religion)"

You DO sound like an ass there, though. No offense.

I don't want to start a flag war but I love Mexico and Canada's' flags from a purely design view. Chile flag is sharp looking too, reminds me of these Tommy Hill shirts my wife bought me. I smile every time I see the Irish flag. My friend went to get the Irish Flag tattooed on his arm when we was in Thailand and when it dried up and healed, it looked exactly like the Italian flag. He was pissed.


EDIT
Now that I have checked the CIA link to the flags I must say, no matter what you may think of the country, Afghanistan has a damn fine looking flag. It looks like something you would see on an expensive box of cigars or wine bottle.

I question the CIA's knowledge of anything, especially since the last couple years and it's inability to keep contact with itself. But that does make sense, still kind of an odd choice, though.

And I did sound like an ass, now that I went back and read my previous post. But it was late, and I wasn't thinking. No offense taken.
