EDIT: BTW, I didn't intend anything about making it compulsory. I just don't understand why people (apart from the few that I mentioned) would choose not to perform that simple act.

The country flag is compulsory at registration, but there seems to be a bug in the plugin that screws that up.
Reviving an old thread.

I thought that was fixed and it certainly seemed to be however a recently joined member has been able to mess with his profile to hide his flag.  :-//

Maybe you need a compulsory Location also with locations only selectable from a popup menu.

It's pretty easy to change your country to '00' like the user you listed.  Just edit your forum profile.  The 'Country' pulldown has a blank line at the top of the list.  Select the blank line and click the 'change profile' button.  I'm now a proud citizen of 00.  ;)

Sure, and some flexibility need be maintained. I've used it too when travelling to Perth to see our son and other members use it also should they reside in other than their native country for some period.

Dave made flags compulsory and went to some trouble to do so yet it appears to me it's being abused.

Just did another zero user purge who haven't logged in the last three months.
10 pages worth, so thousands of accounts.

I still see pages of zero posters in the members list and the forum stats number doesn't appear to have changed. This is not a criticism, just an observation as prior purges never seemed to remove zero post accounts either.

"who haven't logged in the last three months" -- that index page shows creation date, not last active date.
Spot-checking a few, those remaining zero-posters still log in and presumably read, so not eligible for deletion. They just are silent types.

Correct. I do a search for zero post accounts and who haven't visited after a certain date. I got 10 pages worth, and as a I delete each page I have to redo the search and it lowers by a page worth each time, so they are being deleted. It was probably 62 pages if you did this same search just before I did this.
