I’m afraid postbot is just a little piece of software, and it doesn’t know how to do everything… but I can help!

Just go to your profile preferences and scroll down to the last option which is the National Flag. Set it to your country and then save the changes. :slight_smile:


Thank you for your help! :slight_smile:
After doing some extensive research I found the answer myself. :slightly_smiling_face:
I guess I misunderstood the postbot feature at first, but I still think it’s a cute little gadget :smile:


I’m having trouble figuring out how to add a flag to my username in the forum. I know I have to go to the settings somewhere but I can’t find them. Can someone explain this step by step like “when you are on this page, click that” etc.? Thank you in advance!

Tap your avatar/picture in the upper right corner, then

Thank-you very much!



Hi. I’m not sure where to post this. Hopefully this is a good spot. I have a question.

How do I get a flag to show next to my name in the forums? I see a lot of people have that and I can’t seem to figure out how to do it.

Thank you if you can help me.

Hi everyone I have been looking at many post’s here on the forum and noticed some members have a country flag next to their names.

I have tried to find out how they do this but cannot find any information on how to do it?

So I’m having to post this question to see if you can help me.

Regards Andi

I want to know how to hide the flag :joy:

Go to the preferences, same place where to set the flag. In the list of countries, there is an option to choose “no flag.”
