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.
