Hey there!
I seem to have Afganistan as my country in my profile?
And as a flag i have USA flag, but actually i live in Finland.
I probably messed something up while registering, but is it possible to fix it?
Thanks for the help!

I fixed it. You can change your country in your profile (click on your name, top right corner, and a drop down menu should appear). Some of our earlier members were changed to Afghanistan (because it's the first in alphabetical order on the list) and some new members forget to change their country (drop down menu during registration) so they get defaulted to Afghanistan. I fix them when I see them, but I'm sure I miss a few.

Hmmmmm, I just noticed this same thing on my "about me" section as well - it says from Victoria BC as it should but flag is US and country Afghanistan

When I try to adjust the about me in my profile, all I get is a screen that is identical to what I would see if I'm posting or replying to a message???

So could you change me to Canada please Johanna??? LOL

Some folks don't have the country listed, just the flag. Is there a way to click on the flag, or hover on it to show what country it represents?
You laugh at me because I am different. I laugh at you because you are all the same.

If you click on the name, you can see the country in the profile. You can edit your country from there, too. If your country is "Afghanistan" it's because that is the first country in alphabetical order, and your country was never set in your profile.

Looks like I'm another one that needs fixing. USA and corresponding flag. Seems odd I can't change the country myself?

Johanna - you're probably getting sick of this by now, but I could use a Canada flag rather than the USA. I'd change it myself but I can't find anywhere in my profile settings to change it. Thank you!
