Hello everyone,
ShamTech has built a little thingy over the weekend that means you can now display a teeny flag of the world cup team of your choice by your username when you post, should you wish.

Just go to the my profile page and make your selection.

We'd like to point out that this does not mean any change in policy wrt to avatars, tickers and the like and is by no means the thin end of any wedge.

(I've chosen England for now but reserve the right to switch to Belgium as and when my choice becomes redundant grin)

Supporting my sweepstake team.

Considering all the threads in regards to flag utilisers being thick racist benefit stealing scum wads, or just weirdos, is this wise?

People will be judging me on what flag I use and if I use one shock

p.s If the flag thingy isn't working - try logging out then back in again.

Hmmm. I think I'll wait to see which flag nobody wants and choose that one. Much like a rescue kitten.

And what HD said.

Can we support Wooly hugs with a [star] though?

No, it seems not.

TitsCrossed Mon 16-Jun-14 09:56:58

Ooh, it has put the flag on my previous posts too, not just the current one.

Eccellente. With these flag you are really spoiling us.

If you hover over the flag the country shows up. Pretty and educational. And patriotic also, for those whose country is actually in the kicking competition.

Oi! This flag should be orange!
Tjonge, tjonge, tjonge!
