Now tha the nation badges are clickable, I've been playing around with the feature, and found the following. The first number column is the total distinct users listed for that country, and the second column is the number of that nation's users with avatars. The list is sorted by users, then by avatars, then alphabetically. This data was collected over the last 24 hours.

This data does not count users with no country given. It is based purely on what each user has inputted for the 'country' field; so an American living abroad in Germany who states his nation as Germany is counted here under Germany. Afghanistan is deliberately omitted due to a high number of bogus accounts. See for yourself: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/browser.php?itemtype=flag&count...

If I left your country out by mistake, I apologize.

What's a bit odd is that their are users with countries that don't match flags (and remember this originally comes from a drop down menu item). For instance most united states folks have &country=United%20States, but there are also 90 new ids that have &country=USA. Test data?

Yeah, the 'USA' data does look suspicious:

Those USA accounts look suspiciously auto-generated.

I'd recommend adding some sort of CAPTCHA to the registration process to stop these bogus accounts.
