"Information: Please take a moment and visit your profile to choose a flag."

Post by barbaz » Thu Jan 14, 2016 7:09 pm

Just saw this notice today when logging in.
I don't want this info to be so directly associated with my account here, especially if it's publicly visible (I really do *not* want my location information publicly visible); and those who might need that info from me have moderation rights and can thus get it from looking up the IP I'm posting from.

Is there a way to get rid of that notice, without setting a flag or resorting to something like ABP element hiding?
Thanks

Hi,
onely registered/logged can view users profiles and nobody can see your IP also nobody forces you to select the correct flag (from Algeria i am using Japan flag).

No more flags. It was something I was playing with.
