As the last Flag Collecting thread has reached 1000 pages, I've been asked to kick us off with Flag Collecting thread no.3. For previous threads see here and here.


Welcome to the third millennium of the BGG Flag Collecting thread! This is a friendly community of people who enjoy sharing flags, stories and games.


WHAT IS A FLAG POLL/COUNTER?
A flag poll (or counter) is a free script that you can add to your BGG profile page. When someone visits your profile, that person's national flag will be added to your flag display.

It's fun and interesting to see how many people from different countries have visited your profile.

Some BGG users also post a copy here in this thread. In addition to becoming friends with other people here, every visit to a given page of the thread will be recorded in all copies of the flag counter. You can get more flags this way, because other users often see this thread on the BGG front page and check it out. Some people prefer to keep the counter only in their profile, as a record of personal visits.


Important notes:
d10-1BGG admins have firmly established that the personal profile page and this thread are the ONLY acceptable places to post flag counters, and other posts will be deleted.
d10-2The flag counter uses a visitor's IP address to determine the country of origin and appropriate flag. It is possible, using proxy servers, to "fool" the flag counter and not actually be visiting from that real location. Please respect the wishes of the members of this thread by not using proxy servers to fill out flag counters here. (If someone wants that on an individual basis, of course it is fine for a profile page).


HOW CAN I GET A FLAG COLLECTION DISPLAY FOR MY PROFILE?

Anthony has generously donated his time and talent to create a free FlagPoll that is fully functional on BGG and most users have this version now. (Countries only, no region/state flags.)

Click on the flag to get one:

(On the right side and the very bottom are buttons that say "Create your own FlagPoll visitor flag tracker".) When you are done, you can click "Codes" to show the HTML or forum code for embedding that counter in a web page. You can select "Edit" to change the colours. You can go back later and adjust the colours by
logging in with the same e-mail and password that you used to sign up.

Once your code is generated, you can post it on your profile page and in this thread. Visitors are "tracked" only for the page(s) they visited, so many people try to post on every page to get a large collection!

One great feature of FlagPoll is the ability to make a very small functional copy (like the one above). You just add "&size=micro" after the last id## part in the code. This collects flags exactly like the big one that shows all your flags, but takes up much less display room and loading time. You can make a slightly larger one using "&size=small" instead.


FlagCounter
If you look at older flag threads and some people's profiles, you may see flag collections/maps that use FlagCounter scripts. However, most of these have not worked on BGG since the transition to https. (All the IP addresses go through a main server and all register on the free version as being from the same location.) If you pay for "FlagCounter Pro" (about $30), it will record the actual visiting locations. Another advantage of FlagCounter Pro is the capability to record regions/states within countries. If you are interested in this, click here to set up the free FlagCounter, then follow the "Upgrade" link in the top right corner of your statistics page (the page reached after clicking on your FlagCounter) to pay and set up FlagCounter Pro.


MICROBADGES
Here are a few microbadges you can get to show your support for flag collecting and some of our world travelers: mbmb mb mb


Happy Flag Collecting for another 1000 pages!

It took approx. 17 1/2 months for the predecessor to this thread to reach 1,000 pages.

I predict that this time it will take just under 16 months for this thread to hit that mark, presuming normal, historical posting patterns.

Neat idea on starting your flag counter over for the new thread. I think I will stay with mine. Maybe for the 4th edition.
