I see the join date was added back under the avatar area.
Didn't even notice until you pointed it out. I see some people would like the flags back and i cant say that i miss them as its something i never really payed attention to before. However if they were to return then that would be fine aswell.
I don't really see the point in flags, some users didn't even display their country flag before. Also, you can just look at someones profile to see their location.
Yeah i agree, i dont really care if the flags return. Some people didn't even use the flag from the country they were from as they didn't want people knowing what country they lived in or they liked the look of a different flag so they used that etc. You have to remember though that not everyone updates there profile to say were they are from, so looking at peoples profiles doesn't always tell you either.
Well, to be honest, I don't really know why the Location of a member matters to others either. But anyway, like I said, I couldn't care less whether the feature returned
