Is there any way to remove the flag from my profile?
I clicked everywhere and didn't find a option to do it. And by the way: i didn't provide any information about where i am from to this page. So it has to be a guess based on my IP or something ... I don't even have to be from that country ... I can't imagine why it should be ok to make any information about me public, that i don't want to have to be public and that isn't neccessary to play here (like playing statistics) aaand might not be true.
If i didn't overread that option i have two questions to the maintainers of the page:
1. Please make a button to hide this flag <- that would be really great! 2. Please don't show flags based on location, but on provided nationality by the user
Fairly certain that it would be illegal if you had to show your name, but the country from where you are playing? I'm unsure that would be violating freedom of speech, because he is still anonymous no?
Come on guys, are you really this paranoid? Do you really think that something bad is going to happen now that we have narrowed your real identity down to one of (at least) several million people? How is that privacy violation?
In fact, let me give you the street I live: Wildforster. That street lies in Ede, which is in Gelderland, which is in The Netherlands, which is in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. OMGOMGOMG now terrorists are going to find me and kidnap me!
Flags are a nice gimmick that has been requested for ages, because it's fun to see where everyone's from. And if someone really wanted to know stuff about you using the internet there's way easier and more accurate methods for that.
In the states at least, internet anonymity is protected as freedom of speech against the majority.
Have no idea which country Warlight is based out of though, or even if internet related laws are determined by country of origin (I suspect such is the case, mainly due to always watching copyrighted movies etc. on foreign sites).
There was a player, PapiFranzibazuka, who deactivated his WarLight account just because of this very feature, sure in most countries you would disappear in anonymity but he lives in a very small country, just 44 hectares big.
This thread is ridiculous! Fizzer owns the site and we are guests. So the whole thing depends on domiciliary rights. Fizzer makes a decision and you can agree due to the standard form contracts or not, which means you are free to leave. simply do or die!
Concerned about what?!? The flag of the country you are in? The fact that it shows on your profile? What are you, toddlers? ( If by any chance you are, then keep on posting, I understand you have no grip on reality :D )
Incaman, that is rude. You should respect others for their privacy needs, every country is different. Have you heard of the NSA in the United States? Probably a lot different than Macedonian government spying

Go waste your life with something worth wasting."
Just you know ... to show you that other toddlers who achieved quite a bit more than you share concerns on personal information being shared without consent.
Hahahaha, the debates here are quite interesting :D
The privacy, terror and violation of human rights is FAR WORSE in Macedonia, than you could ever imagine it could be in USA trust me.
Anyway, I'm all for conserving privacy on the net and everywhere, don't get me wrong, but I don't consider the flag of my country a violation of that privacy. This is a free and private site it chooses the information it will display, if you have a problem with that don't join the site. Every application you ever installed on your mobile and PC (or whatever you are using) is collecting your information and some even sharing it. Your very governments are spying on you without consent. The fucking (excuse my language but this is the only adjective i will ever use for global corporations ) corporations are spying on you without consent. So if you want to fight the sharing of personal information without consent this is not the place to do it.
Well if the invasion of privacy is far worse in your country then you of all people should understand that not everyone wants to be known. Imagine if for Macedonia, the creators showed which region you are in at that specific moment? That is what they do for the USA and I imagine it will spread to Canadian provinces next and etc
