    Profile Flag

    Not an issue as such but can you tell me how I can change the Country Flag on my Edugeek profile? I am moving back to UK from Germany after many years and would like my profile flag to reflect that.

    I think it might be Region / State Flag in the edit profile section.
    May be wrong though, edugeek newbie ;D

    settings at the top right > edit profile in the left menu.

    My Region setting is N/A as I never set it. Country Setting has no edit button next to it for me to change it from Germany to UK/England

    I've just checked mine, and I can check it....

    HOWEVER...

    I am deeply upset that you can have pretty much every area of UK EXCEPT Northants!..... So I have gone for the Pitcairn Islands instead!!

    Yup, appears it is now admin only.

    "Country flag was locked as people had a habit of picking random countries and its used for part of the system for forums lists etc."
    Change Country Flag?

    What he said ^^

    I will update your profile now.

    The flag field is used for various system settings and to deliver content from the nearest node which is why it was locked out (although its less of a problem now due to CDN changes) since people were setting their country to random things.

    Well, to be fair I haven't been to the Pitcairn Islands but I do come from Northants and I don't remember it being quite so salubrious, though that could be my memory going...
