I have mixed feelings on this subject. On the one hand it could be pretty neat, but having looked at Leftypol it looks like they over use it, and I would want ideology flags to drown out country flags. My top preference would be that flags are like they are on Polandball Reddit, where some users have icons that are specific and chosen (like a Texas flag), but most have ones that presumably correspond to the country their IP is from.
Actually, one solution could be that people just request flags on the /qa/ board, and moderators manually change their flags to whatever specific requested flag. That would mean that people could have unique flags if they really want them, but it wouldn't be so common as to disrupt the current flag system, and would probably require less coding than making a new choose-your flag feature
I did not even know 4chon existed. I went there to see their flag system and it just looks terrible. I rather like the location-based country flags we have now. But there have been times that I've wanted my own Texas flag
>>1305>what other flags would you like to see? Do you think they should be limited to political ideologies, or should they be more 4chon-like?
A mix of both. For example, you can perhaps have a kekistani flag while still having a majority of ideological flags. Ideology flags seem like the best shot, and I like the idea >>1304
this messages in case there's over saturation.
As for suggested flags, here's a list from me:>NatSoc Germany flag>White Power cross flag whatever it's called)>Kekistan flag (not fully suggested)>Fasce flag>Texas flag>Gadsen/"Don't tread on me" flag>Uncucked Canadian flag (the one with the crest)>Rebublican lion flag
I don't like it!
I never liked the ideology flags. They always just encourage people to let the their flgs talk for them, and promoted factional bullshit within board discussion.
Also, we're far too small at this point for this to not immediately become cancerous: this board is too small to retain its anonymity if everyone can easily point out "that one guy who is a National Capitalist".
What is going on with the flags?
The latest upgrade included a number of new flags that moderators can manually change a poster's flag to
That makes sense. Can I have the Iron Guard flag then?
Ideology flags were actually included in the last upgrade, although they have to be manually changed by moderators. That particular flag is not included in the current set of available flags, however
We are in the process of adding more flags. We just want to add a couple at a time as it requires users to clear browser cache to view the new flags.
To clarify these won't be flags you can choose you have to earn them.
Wonderful! can you add this one? >>1579
How do you change your flag? This system is different than the one I remember.
It's a forced flag a moderator can change your flag to. So ask a moderator to change your flag.
Are there any Teutonic Order flags? Or any Crusader/Monastic order flags?
Yes we have a crusader flag
We've added several new Ideology flags. We've also gone ahead and changed your flag to the Confederate National Flag. If you want it changed back or want the Confederate Battle Flag, just ask
Clear your browser cache to see the flags displayed
It didn't do anything.
You should have new flag if you post in >>>/mlpol/
or board with flag
Oh, I have to make a new post. Derp. Thank you!
No problem, hope you like your new flag.
Yooo, Mods can I have the Princevlag for my flag?
Thanks, you guys rock
That can be done, though it would have to be uploaded, which may take a few days
Understandable, thank you and have a nice day
Next time bring hotpocket
Did you drop your hotpocket?
The Princevlag flag is uploaded. If you want, we can change your flag now. You will not be able to see the flag, nor will others be able to see it, until your respective browser caches are cleared
Thanks I wouldn't mind the change
so can just anyone ask for a flag and the moderation can give it to them?
Pretty much, yeah. If it's a particularized flag that we don't have, we can just upload it.
Princenvlag dude here, can I get the flag from this IP too? its just a different Device.
Wait, nvm works here too…..
We could upload it. I'm less sure as to making it the standard American Geo flag for that day, but that's a thought
oh well, at the very least could it be my flag for the month?
Yes. As always with new flags, because of difficulties associated with changing the code and rebuilding, it may not be uploaded for a couple days when it can packaged alongside new features uploaded to the website (It should be up before July 4). What name would you like to go with the flag?
how about "oldest glory"?
Should VPN users have special flags? Doesn't seem to matter but it has the potential to be confusing, and the other day a poster asked if mods could manually change flags to the "right" one. We could be Equestria for example.
Not sure myself, just putting it out there.
any progress for this?
Upon further consideration, we have decided to do something a bit broader with regards to flags for the 4th. Your flag will be uploaded with the next update.
alright. I await the surprise!
Is that a Hezzbollah flag?
While "Oldest Glory" was uploaded as a forced flag option with the July 4 flag set, it appears to have been removed when the flags were returned to normal on July 5. So your flag will now have to be included in the next upload Did you still want "waifu thief" uploaded as a forced flag?
Uh… You know Hezbollah is designated as an international terrorist organization by the US and several other governments, right? And that they've done things to earn this designation? Give the staff time to consider this request.
Also, should we grant it, what babe do you want for the flag?
And "Oldest Glory" has been uploaded and your flag has been set to it
dude, nice! thanks. as for >>1771
, do whatever. if the roma flag still fits, that's alright.
They also don't like the Jews.(User was Leaf'd for this post)
you wasted the America get, sir.
>>1776>mfw I'm a leaf now and I didn't even make that post
YOU LEAF'D THE WRONG IP!
Woops, I do belive Hezzy is for me. ;^)
We considered our request and determined that you can have the Hezbollah flag, but we want you to know that you're a faggot for wanting the flag of an anti-American Islamic terrorist organization.
It already uploaded with the name "Hezbolla." I'll set it to being your flag now. Tell us if you want a different name for it
Idk. I was in the hospital at midnight after overdosing on autism meds: I wasn't thinking straight.
Mods pls check IPs. I would never defend Hezbollah.
Correction. The flag's name is spelled correctly as "Hezbollah"
Eh, I do see a conversation between you and that IP on a board, which I guess would be weird if it's you from a different IP, so I'll remove the flag
P-please no bully. T-thanks!
Sorry.>pro tip just say "no homo" and it will go away
I am not the flag mod, and I was told I must stop sympathizing and being so kind all of the time. I blame sleep deprivation. So… you have homosexual tendencies. There, I said it.>No homo
Israel is the U.S' greatest ally
Yes. We already have that flag uploaded, with the name "Gadsen." I've gone ahead and set "Gadsen" as your flag.
This. I can haz?
Do you want the image depicted in >>1798
as your flag? If so, what name do you want for it?
Name: "Hale Hortler!"
What are you talking about? >>1798
was my post.
Okay, I thought you were answering for >>1816
I'm ok w/ heil horfler or w/e other anon said, but I'd suggest "Heil Hoofler" on principle XD
"Heil Hoofler" has been uploaded at your flag has been set to it
it was explained in a different thread, but I'll tl;dr it for you: it's a reminder that it got shoah'd for our political beliefs.
Could I get the Equestrian flag?
previously, and just don't want to give people the wrong location.
I'm assuming I have to ask every time the IP changes, but at least there's only a few and it doesn't happen very often.
The VPN issue was covered with Dev team. It is technically doable, but would present both false positives and false negatives. It is difficult to know which IPs are proxies, and which are not.
Yes we can set your flag to the Equestrian flag. It would have to be changed everytime the IP is changed
Changed to the Equestrian flag
Thank you. Posting here just got 20% more comfy.>>1901
Yes, VPN providers usually don't keep public lists of what IPs are theirs so you're right of course.
That leaves doing it volontarily/manually. I'll bother someone in this thread if and when the IP changes - but it will just cycle through 4-5 different servers (depending on which ones has spare capacity) so hopefully it won't be too annoying.
Is there a Black Sun flag?
What is "the black flag"?
Am I ignored? >>1889
Everytime I see your flag post and remember it the lead developer is offline
I'd like to have the Equestrian flag if it isn't too much trouble.
Thanks! And I want to say helping flagless anons like this is much appreciated.
We can upload it in little time. The Gadsen flag is a currently available option, as are two seperate confederate flags. Are you not converned about Blue Bonnie being confused for Somali?
Its a somali flag now? Motherfuckers.
Gimme the gadsden then. >grumbles
We could of course. Do you have one to recommend that has a solid background?>>2065
I'll go ahead and set it then. Be advised that to retain a flag, you have to keep posting from the same IP. When you change IPs, your new IP will display the geo-location flag
Am I still ignored? It's been 2 weeks. If you don't want to just let me know so I stop waiting.
Did I happen to mention how much I nohomo
We can add that flag. What name would you like for it?
It's just going to look like solid yellow with a three-pixel smudge in the middle and no one will know what it's supposed to be.
Coincidentally not that different from the flag I have, except it's more recognizable.
Uuuuhhhh the Fagsden Flag? Idk.
Hi, could I have a flag that's a mix of the british Union Jack and the Gurren Lagann skull? Basically this.http://img08.deviantart.net/df09/i/2010/163/2/1/gurren_lagann_union_jack_svg_by_chaosdata.png
Also, are my settings wrong? I don't see anyone's flag right now.
We can upload that as a new flag. I'm guessing you want the name as "meme-war veteran"?>>2165
Press Control f5, or clear you cache to see new flags
Yes please, that name would be great.
We have uploaded that image as a flag with the name "Meme War Veteran" and have set it as the flag for that IP. However, be advised that the flag remains with an IP - when you switch IPs, you lose the forced flag, and a geo-flag will show instead. You can of course ask again if your IP switches
So this is a gibs me flag bread?
Gibs me this flag plz
Kind and brave flag mod, could I have the Equestrian flag on this IP? Bastard crashed on me.
That was quick. Thank you!
Gives a guy a flag in a few hours
Doesn't give me my flag ( >>2193
name = Ausfailia) in two days
There was a bit of a hold up as we were unsure what name to use. Your flag will be uploaded as soon as the Lead Developer is available to do it.
Your flag has been added and changed
Reminding to bring me back my beauty flag. ;^) new IP now so use it as for this post.
Requesting Israel flag.
I don't want to be a Jew anymore. Can I have the Black Sun instead?
Can I have my crusader flag back, please? I'm on a new IP now. Thanks in advance baste mods
We need a Texas flag for Texan users and LGBT flag for Californian users.
Can I have this flag too?
There's like six gorillion versions of it. Pick a different one.
t. Not a mod
That's just my shit opinion though…
Feel free to do as you please.
>>3096>Feel free to do as you please
*teleports behind you*
*nothin personnel kid*
I'm not AB, btw. I just thought you might think I was him.
What if I were to tell you I was him? Just kidding. I don't give me a Third Reich flag or some other fascist one. I just thought the Aryanne was pretty nice.
Uh… I'll change you to the Reich Flag, although you can have the Aryanne Brotherhood flag if you prefer it
lol did you change my flag to american? Its not my proxy because im still australian on 4/pol/
You don't seem to have a forced flag, nor is an American forced flag an option. I recall a little over three months ago there was an Australian with a similar issue, whose flag displayed as American even though he was certain of an Australian IP address. Perhaps your current IP cluster was formerly American, and our system has not updated to reflect the change.
American NatSoc Party
User avatars were a mistake. However I believe my IP changed and would still like to have the Equestria flag on this one if mods don't mind.
We can of course change your flag to that, however, there is concern that the detail in the flag may not show well in the very small flag. Perhaps some of the options in >>3147
it seems my custom flag has disappeared out of nowhere. is this a sitewide bug or just me?
You changed IPs. Forced flags attach to specific IPs, but only to that IP. I'm guess judging by writing style and geo-flag you are the same as had the Aryanne Brotherhood flag? If so, would you like that or any other flag?
Must have been a power shortage at my house while i was away, that happenes sometimes. thought my IP was recognizeable by regio to the server and would give me the same custom flag again. I never change my IP on my own.
Yes, I would very much like the same flag again. Thank you.
I changed IPs. Can I have the Iron Guard flag back pls.
I can ask, but I know the devs do not like for any shape besides a rectangle or a square to used as a flag, since other shapes tend not to work well with the rectangle shaped flag field
Perhaps a rectangle background or just the head will suit.
Can I pls habe epona flag though?
umping this guy for support.
Howdie, could you please change my IP flag to the Confederate Battle Flag? Thanks.
No niggers allowed!
Would it be possible to get a Imperial German flag from my IP?
Can I have my flag reverted? I miss being a regular burger, and my constant use of the flag I have retracts from it's original purpose, in my opinion.
please? I've actually thought this out, unlike everything that I should've before.
Thanks Lotus, doing good work out there. Keep on doing your best, and I'll do my best to support from the sidelines!not sure why I added that last bit, but it has seemed like you're doing everything lately, and that people haven't been as appreciative of the hard workers here as they should.
Just put me back to a leaf.
Flag reverted please? People are right its just like namefagging
Can you make mine USA or would my proxies negate that? Sometimes I forget which one I'm using when posting and without it im identifiable because of current location.
Your flag already seems to display as USA on /vx/. We do not currently have the American flag as an option, although it could be uploaded
Every man should get a vril flag
Well, it is my belief that we should not only include flags representing the conservative side, but also give ideology flags for the leftists as well, although we may not agree with them, it gives them a more equal space on mlpol.
Remove my custom flag, please. Thank you.
As per your request, the flag has been removed
Hello, may I please have the Confederate Battle Flag? Thank you.
Hello, may I please have an American flag? Thank you.
And now, it is done>>4056
That was done as soon as you asked
It's unlucky that using a VPN location won't let me have a cool flag. Oh well.
OK, I had my fun with my custom flag.
Remove, just like communists.
May I have my "Vril Society" flag back please? Thank you.
Since flags can be optionally hidden now
Can I have a German flag please? Thanks.
Wow! Approve this mans brilliant request, we can have two based zerochan german-bros.
