Previously you could use your pointer to hover over the country flag on a userid and it would tell you the city and state in America. Also in other nations. No more. Now it's just the country.

I actually noticed this after the last series of crashes and upgrades a few months back but was reading a thread today where it would have been helpful and the feature is still absent.

Anyone... like maybe an Admin... want to fill me in? Is this by design or just something that broke and will be fixed?

There's a bug thread for this in a forum somewhere. When I first noticed I went to post a bug, but somebody beat me to it.

But now it hasn't been fixed, so maybe it's a "feature." If it is, then it's a sucky one. I like knowing who lives near me, and while just "Luxembourg" may tell you whether or not somebody is your neighbor, "United States" doesn't cut it.

Edit: I know I can click on their name to see what city and state they are in, but I'm lazy. And I like being lazy. Why should BGG make me go through the effort of clicking on a user name?

Trust me when I say that we have very valid reasons for removing it, but I don't wish to make those reasons public. It will return again, as it is a 'very good thing' (tm). We just have to figure out the best way to implement it again...

Somebody must have been abusing it to hurt other users. There's a BGG stalker. DUN DUN DUUURRRRR!

Hmmmm, who amongst my fellow Chit Chatters is a stalker? Okay, easier question: who amongst my fellow Chit Chatters is NOT a stalker? Well Morgan's ruled out because stalking is just not cool. Scribs is out, because he's more of a freeway-sniper type than a stalker type. Shebby's out because she is too nice to be a stalker. Wow, it's harder to eliminate suspects than I thought. MGBM is out, cos stalking ducks is just hunting, not stalking.

Anybody else care to splain why they're not a stalker?

Not a stalker in general.......or not stalking you in particular?

Love that pic, though the original context was better.
