When I created my profile there was no option for Québec in the "nationality" section, and yet, there was pointless things like NATO or even Mars. So I picked Canada because it's the closest thing to me, but really, you guys should include Québec as an option for nationality. I also know a few other members on this website that come from Québec just like me (Biker Boyz, Bondergomme, Jerome) so it would not only be beneficial to me, but to other people as well. It's bad when my profile shows a flag that I don't really feel like belonging to.

Last I checked, Quebec isn't a nation.

 

If they do that, then they need all the provinces, as well as all the American States (love you deadite), the Mexican ones, the Australian Provinces, and of course, each island in Hawaii.

1-Mars isn't a nation, NATO isn't, the Red Cross isn't, Wales, Scotland and all other british regoins aren't, but yet they are all available in the nationality options.

 

2-We Quebecers were once a nation before we were annexed by Canada, and most of us see themselves as Quebecers, not Canadians.

3-A quote from the wikipedia page of Québec: "In 2006, the House of Commons of Canada passed a symbolic motion recognizing the "Québécois as a nation within a united Canada."[15][16]".  In other words, we are recognised as a nation inside a nation, if that's not too complicated to understand.

 

4-Is it too much to ask for you to look at your profile flag? Is this what you call a nation? x)

Scotland is a separate country, under the umbrella of the United Kingdom, with it's own Parliament and system of laws, along with Wales.

 

Quebec isn't.

 

Mars is an entire planet.  The UN is a great multi-national organization.

 

Quebec is a province.  

 

A quote from the wikipedia page of Quebec:

 

Quebec is the second-most populous province of Canada, after Ontario. It is the only one to have a predominantly French-speaking population, with French as the sole provincial official language.

Yes we do have our own government...

Would you like it if your country was invaded by North Korea and getting renamed "Second Korea" then having to show the Second Korean flag on your forums because your original country doesn't exist anymore and then having to deal with people who are against the fact that you want to express your true nationality? Why do you think you should be allowed to have a Mars flag on your profile even tough you are not from Mars and that I shouldn't get the Québec flag even tough I am from Québec? Agreeing with you would be an example of discrimination.

 

Edit: If you think we shouldn't get our flag, then how do you explain this?: https://en.wikipedia...bec_nationalism

Let's be real, no human was ever born on Mars. Sure there's the possibility that all my life was a lie and that we are actually in year 3017 and humans have colonised Mars and I was living in a matrix for my whole life but we can all agree that this is absurd and that there's practically zero chance that this is true. Yet I was born and lives in Québec. And just like most Quebecers, I see myself as a Quebecer, not a Canadian. You have no point in trying to stop this suggestion, other than personal retaliation against me, which is not even a good point. I don't think we have to remind the people of GTAforums about what you did to me. If that's all you can do against me, you've fallen very low.

 

Anyway mods, can we get this nationality added please? I'd like to be done with this before AlienTwo sends his sad little army against me everytime he gets triggered by politics (just like last time).

Whatever. Even if it really wasn't you, everybody in here agrees that you are human. And thus you are not from Mars. As for me, I am from Québec, so that's why I would love to be able to fully express myself in my profile information.

 

Edit: The Member Photos topic where I found your picture has a rule that says "POSTING IMAGES THAT ARE EITHER NOT YOU OR THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO USE WILL RESULT IN THE REMOVAL OF ALL IMAGES AND DISCIPLINARY ACTION WILL BE TAKEN AGAINST YOUR ACCOUNT". So you're either lying, or breaking the rules. Gotcha.

He isn't lying.

That's only a 'humanlike skin suit' he wears to avoid upsetting those around himself.

As for provinces and regions, I would love to see the White Rose of Yorkshire, the Red Rose of Lancashire and I am sure there are many others who would love to see flags like, the Cornish flag, the Basque region of Spain, the Breton flag of North West France.

I could go on, but these flags all refer to regions within countries, not actual countries or conglomerates of countries.

Provincial flags are not going to happen any time soon.

Dude... I'm serious. You just don't understand. We are a nation, we are not a country, but still a nation. We see ourselves as Quebecers, not Canadians, because we are Quebecers. That's it. We aren't just a province, we are a real nation inside another nation. You can't understand if you already have your own flag, but we don't. A lot of us get turned off when we can't express our flag. Remember the flags you can put on parachutes and the Imponte Dukes in GTA 5? Well a lot of us got pissed off that Rockstar Games didn't include the Québec flag. And it's the same thing for every video game/forum that doesn't recognise us. I've proven multiple times already that we are a nation and I've also proven that if there's pointless things like Mars, NATO and the Red Cross (which aren't nations in any way) it would already be 1000x more appropriate to add Québec in the nationalities list. AlienTwo has no point at all, he's only been changing subject or outright lying everytime I proved him wrong. Please mods and admins, it's very important for me and other Quebecers to add the option of choosing "Québec" as a nationality on the forums because most of us don't see ourselves as Canadians. And also you've read the wikipedia article, and it clearly states that Québec is a nation, not just a province, so there's no reason why it shouldn't be in the nationalities list.

we are not a country, 

 

The IPB plug-in describes the flags as Country Flags..plus a few extras those who choose to be vague about their nationality or allegience (eg EU, NATO etc)

 

Quebec is a province of Canada and hence, not included in the list of countries.

 

Maybe IPB 4+ will allow user specified flags but at present, the options are limited by the software provided.

Yeah but we still are a nation and we don't see ourselves as canadians. It's hard to understand when you've got your flag already but imagine someone who cannot express his real identity. That's exactly my case. How do you explain the Wales and Scotland flags then? Aren't those not countries? It's the exact same thing for Québec except it's 1000 times more important. At least in Wales or Scotland the british flag is accepted but here in Québec it's a big no no for most people to be stuck with the Canada flag. Seriously, some people here would get reeeaaal mad if I told them I literally have to argue to add Québec as a country option on an internet forums. We are VERY different from Canada because we used to be independant before the british empire annexed us and made Canada. We are exactly like Tibet in a way that we both used to be a real country before being annexed by people who are completely different from us and we don't feel being Canadian just like Tibetans don't feel being Chinese.

 

If there's Wales and Scotland in the list, it's absolutely not normal that there isn't Québec in the list. We're extremely more different to Canada than Wales or Scotland is to the UK in EVERY ASPECT IMAGINABLE.

Well Québec is a nation, and in here being labeled as "Canadian" is 1000 times worse than being labeled as a "British" for the Wales or Scottish. And once again, I could also talk about Mars or the Red Cross. Those aren't nations in ANY WAY, so why do they exist but not Québec? Please, just add Québec to the IPB list. It's much more important than having all those fake nations.

Ok let's do some comparison.

 

What's the main language of Scot/Welsh vs UK? English vs English. Québec vs Canada? French vs English.
What's the main religion of Scot/Welsh vs UK? Protestantism vs Protestantism. Québec vs Canada? Catholicism vs Protestantism.

What nation has been ACTIVELY struggling to be independant? Québec MUCH MORE than Scotland. (Remember the FLQ guys?)

 

So really, there's no reason why Québec shouldn't be included in the IPB list. It's actually shocking to see that it was left out.

The fact remains that Quebec is not a country (and FYI being labelled as "British" for the Welsh or Scottish is not a problem for the majority of the Welsh and Scottish people) and the list is compiled by IPB: the forum software creators, not GTAF, the forum software users.

They're not in charge of maintaining GTAForums. GTAForums is maintained by Tank and other Network Admins Rather, they (IPB Devs) develop the Forum Software that GTAForums runs on. Contacting IPB to add a Quebec flag will get it added to their software and with the next upgrade, GTAForums shall have it (only if the IPB guys add it).
