    Sorry if this has already been raised. just moved back to OZ from NZ and haven't had access for a while.
    Question; I notice that the flag for your Country of origin appears to be where your ISP is based - I'm British but curently in OZ - how do I get a British flag not an Australian one ? - BTW - there's nothing wrong with OZ - just being (for my sins) a patriot.

    you can change it yourself. Click on the little house on the top left hand side. Under "My Summary" will appear your nic name and your email address, then directly underneath that a "Edit" hyperlink. Click on that link. It will take you to the Your Details page. Where it says "Country of Origin" choose Australia or any of the other countries. Then press "Update".

    Still on the subject of flags, I'm from Costa Rica and my flag is not shown (only a blank rectangle)... Casually I have a 24x12 flag of my country! Can I upload it or send it so it is updated?

    I am in Zimbabwe, and, like trad above, I'm also flagless. OK, it's not the end of the world, but it would be great to see "the deckchair" making it's way up the charts.
    (When you see our flag, you'll understand why I call it that!)

    Anyone have an idea of who / how to tell about things like flaglessness?

    Cheers
    Mike

    Alas I'm flagless again! Is my country ashamed of my chess? I've never been too fond of my homeland but I never thought they would take away their flag... is there anything you could do for me Russ?

    Thanks,
    Trad

    P.S.
    Zimbawe people are also without a flag.

    The people of Zimbawe have not had their own flag for decades.

    Russ, could you give us little tooltips for the flags so that we know where they come from?
    thanks (old and little wish),

    Zimbabwe had mysteriously disappeared and has now been replaced.
    Costa Rica has now been added.

    Yeah, it's my neighbouring country. They do have some serious political problems, but I rather meant it in a lighthearted way
