    When I check out the player stats, I see that IM now displays a South African flag. Any comments on this?

    Big deal. Alot of players have an other flag in their profile than the country they're from.

    I ask because his flag's changed. So, you're saying it means nothing?

    It could mean anything.

    It's just not nice to speculate about this. I suggest you ask him.

    Thanks, I was just wondering, that's all. I'm still relatively new to RHP and I wasn't aware that asking such a question could be such an issue. I promise not to do it again.
    And Freddie2004 ... just stuff off.

    He changes his flag regularly to reflect his international status.

    I believe his true flag would be Italian.

    Don't be put off by some of the ignorant comments, this is a great site and I welcome you to it.

    Yes, but he is currently displaying the South African flag which is where this thread started.

    The administration here put a ton of little countries simply so people would click on them.

    Give me a break, most of these people are either from the US or the UK. Add a few more popular countries and that's all you need - there isn't a need for half a million countries that consist of one square foot.

    But the admin at RedHotPawn made it this way, small countries are important here.

    Personally, I just got done scrolling through a lot of the random countries in search of a cool flag. I'm sure many others do this.

    There really just isn't anything to worry about. Let's all take a breath.

    Small countries are as important as great countries.

    If a guy is from Peru it's his right to have the opportunity to display the Peru flag.

    I don't understand why you're bothered by world's flag..............or maybe you just don't know where those "one square foot countries" are?

    I love world flags. I have a wide collection of many of them.

    I'm simply saying that many websites just ask you to identify the country NEAREST to you. They may only have 5 or 6 countries listed.

    This is actually a compliment to this website... because, as you said, we care for the smaller nations.

    I think it's pretty awesome.
