Gary - I do have a Union Jack on my profile in the rankings list. I am referring to the flag that dictates your language choice, of which there seems to be only two - American or French. Naturally I want the site in English so I choose the American flag. My point is that it should be a Union Jack and the yanks should be selecting that for their choice of language (along with anyone else who wants the site to show in English). Last time I checked it isn't "American" that we speak, its "English" - this was my point and question!

It's disappointing this can't be changed, I fail to understand why and hope it can be worked on. :)

I mean really you could argue it should therefore be the England flag, not the Union Jack - but that might over complicate things as UK players have the UJ flag on their profiles. :)

Well, live and learn. I am amazed I never saw it before. Although I'm not on the old web version much anymore, I now see what you're talking about. For what it's worth, this choice isn't on the new app at all. There's no language choice at all there.

As to your complaint I think it's notable but I guess they went with the numbers and the history. Stratego was licensed out to an American company, Milton-Bradley at one point and they've simply tons more Americans playing on the site that they are appealing to. I guess. (TheO did the numbers in his International Index.) I might toss in, also for what it's worth, that I think that pound for pound the English are far better writers in the forum. ;)

Quite agree! ;)

I don't mind if they want to have their little stars and stripes, we all know most Americans think they own everything including the English language. But surely there should be the choice - you know, like Microsoft kindly throwing us scraps to choose our language as 'English' instead of 'English American' whatever that is. lol.

I've been told I have an American flag. I am Welsh, live in Wales, so would like a Wales flag. If that isn't possible, I suppose a British flag would suffice.

Hi Gary, I don't think very many people are around these days. Even my jokes are not producing likes.

This morning I logged in, and had a Israeli flag. I'm not sure if someone did it by mistake or if it's a glitch.


complaint department is on strike.

if you dislike a joke, not my problem. Sue me.

Hi.. that is fine. It is not an urgent matter but it would be nice to have the correct flag.

That's a darn good record. What's your main account name?

With the changes in admins this year this particular topic has been dropped by them. I will put in a request to resume servicing the problems reported here, and hopefully catch up on all reported here in the past several months.

Yo,

 

Complaining about your flag? That is lame!

What does it matter under which flag you stay?

See it as an advantage in the match you play

cuz' like this, they never know who you really are in this nasty game! :D

Maybe they think you're an alias of someone, fantastic mate

so I wouldn't give a sj...about my flag display.

My rap is great and sorry that I brag this way

but I'm that kunt who's bringin' the facts today

so I need to express myself in this flagdebate! :D

You guys all act like this stuff is disaster-based

but if that's the case,...

you wouldn't be able to play in your cascet, grave

or maybe you'll get burned and turn into ashes mate? :D

For me, this entire topic is a drastic waste

so quit the naggin' mates

cuz' it's only a masquerade

for the REAL sad disgrace!

Starvation, diseases, earth-and afterquakes

so don't try to hide your smellin' flagcomplaints

with a cheap and lousy aftershave cuz' that's insane! :D

Be glad you can trap your prey

on the site with the dopest graphics mate.

This site is about the craft we face

and it's not about your flags and names!

Your flag is great so pass this straight

and focus yourself on this nasty game!

And remember,...if you lose, keep talkin' trash and waste

and havin' said that, it's the end of my rappin' mates! :D
