Country/etc flags on /ef/ ## ModCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13466

Mikie brought up the idea of a possible feature on /ef/: country flags, like on 4chan's /pol/ and other boards. If this is implemented, it would probably default to your country's flag, or you could set a custom one out of a list if you prefer. And the OP might have an option to disable flags in their thread. Who knows?

Would you guys be interested, or should it be left as-is?

If there is a dropdown list of flags to choose from I think /pol/'s would be good with choices representing political affiliation/ideology.

Maybe a couple of silly options wouldn't hurt either.

I don't think it could cause more trouble really, if anything it might alleviate some of the more explosive arguments as people may see a flag of an ideology they hate and ignore the thread/user outright instead of getting into it.

Who am I kidding, it'll be like flies on shit

I guess, but it eventually was actually destroyed after the split. And either way, I feel like when it split (or maybe at some point before) it was just a shadow of its former glory. By that point, it's just kind of depressing reading about it, honestly.

Which split? The crisis of 3rd century? The tetrarchy? The division between Theodosius' sons?

The legal western empire ended with the death of Julius Nepos, and even then it was in a sense continued institutionally via the Catholic Church and the Papal States that would emerge (or the >H>R>E) if you count that abomination). The Eastern Roman Empire continued until 1453.

The physical empire ended, but the ideas and institutions continue to live on.

>By that point, it's just kind of depressing reading about it, honestly.


The middle ages were rough on the east, but they had a remarkable ability to bounce back from the brink of destruction.

indeed
>Which split?
uh...the split that created the Byzantine Empire? Wasn't that the main split? Or at least the biggest one? I admit my Roman history is a little rusty.
>and even then it was in a sense continued institutionally via the Catholic Church and the Papal States that would emerge
The Catholic Church isn't/wasn't Rome, it just took its place. And I already knew that about the Byzantine Empire. I wouldn't consider it to be Rome either.
>The physical empire ended, but the ideas and institutions continue to live on.
I think that's what my professor was referring to, I'm just probably being ornery and overly technical, but arguing with history professors on technical details is probably a less than great idea.

Anyway, we're getting kind of off topic.

It was the last division between Theodosius' sons. The crisis of the Third Century and the Tetrarchy were arguably more severe in their divisions.

>The Catholic Church isn't/wasn't Rome


Of course it was, it was a state institution that survived.

>And I already knew that about the Byzantine Empire. I wouldn't consider it to be Rome either.

Yes, but I have a mighty need to know the above. I'll make a thread elsewhere.

Actually, this is where I got the actual country flag sprites from, and there's more than just 16x11. I just chose that because it's the same flag sprite set that 4chan and 8chan uses. All custom flags will have the same resolution.

that looks much better imo, like my issue with the smaller ones is it's hard to even tell what flag it is

also despite our similarities to the other chans we're still our own site so I don't see why we should have to have them exactly the same, ya know?

Yes, but if you have it at 24x24, the flag is taller than the font around it and it looks weird.

I should also mention that if you mouseover a flag, it'll show the name of the country, which helps since some GeoIP country codes share flags.

Good news everyone! The backend code is almost complete. As it is now, I have to manually set a post's country ID and name in the database, but from there it shows up on the rendered post. Next, I'm going to add a dropdown to flag-enabled boards so you can select what country to post as, or to have it detect what country you're posting from. When that part is complete, it will store your selection in a cookie.

Aside from incoming post handling (which requires frontend stuff in order to work), all of the backend stuff is finished and (mostly) rock solid. I don't have any pretty screenshots to show though, because aside from one insignificant change, it looks exactly the same to the end user.
