      More a comment than a question

      I know I'm new here and I'm not trying to stir poo, but when I made my last post I realized that my state flag and the American flag were on my post. The problem was that my state flag was on the left. I know when you hang flags the American flag needs to be furthest left. I don't know if that's the case in print, but it seemed a bit odd.

      Like I said, I'm not trying to ruffle feathers, just making an observation on something that may seem trivial to some but seemed incorrect.

      Nice catch!

      I'm surprised this wasn't picked up on earlier.

      Hrm. I always looked at the forums' flags in the hierarchical address format:

      city -> state -> country

      Which is of course, left to right (or up to down)

      Just me.

      When the flag is displayed, it is supposed to be on the flag's far right - or on the far left from the viewer's perspective.

      not exactly related to flag placement, but did you know that our flag was designed by a 17/18 year old? it was for a school project. He originally got a B-, but when his flag won the competition his teacher bumped his grade to an A... crazy huh?

      heres one source, but i've found it several others as well

      As far as I know, the Flag presentation rules are consistent in every media and presentation. (on screen, print, etc.)

      My guess is-
      The original code for the forum is "stock" so I bet that this is one of those artifacts.... To change it would mean editing the php code to make the change (and re-editing each time the software is updated).
