Hi, I couldn't help but notice in the flag selection bar in my settings that multiple countries names were spelt wrong.

Eg.
Rawanda should be Rwanda
Djiboutil should be Djibouti
Sao Thome should be Sao Tome
Lebera should be Liberia
Guineal should be Guinea
Guineabissau should be Guinea-Bissau
Elsalvado should be El Salvador
Ivorycoast should be Ivory Coast
Burund should be Burundi

That is all I've picked up on smile.gif

and one from Asia: Burma is no longer called Burma, officially, it is called Myanmar or something now

another one from Africa - Burkinafaso is 2 words, should be Burkina Faso
I also don't see Antigua and Barbuda

Yeah that's true actually, I did see that but for some reason I thought it could be either like Ivory Coast/Côte d'ivoire blush.gif

On an alternate note Serbia's flag is wrong, I have serbia's flag on and it should have little emblem jest left of center
otherwise it is russian flag.
Also no Montenegro flag. Montenegro is a country now admins, has been for 6 years smile.gif

I would imagine most of those countries don't even have good enough internet to even play multiplayer, if they have internet at all.

But I would correct the grammar rather than the flag.

I read somewhere it isn't possible because the flag system that GTAF uses was rented by someone a while back and now the rent thing has ran out, so they can't change anything now.

Besides the flag system is only a bit of fun on the side, no need to complain if it isn't 100% perfect with all the minor countries that probably don't even have internet.

Not sure where you heard that. I wrote it originally, it was only ever supposed to be a quick solution - it's not tied into the control panel or anything and quite hacked together/done quickly, so changes are a bit of a pain but not impossible. However, it was only ever meant as a bit of fun so the fact that it's not 100% accurate isn't high on our priority list.

And as for adding 'alternative' flags? No.

No problem Jevon. It wasn't a formal complaint or anything I was just wondering why it was like that and if it could possibly be changed. icon14.gif

Thanks and feel free to lock. smile.gif
