"Extra flags for 4chan" is a browser extension / userscript that adds an additional level of difficulty to collecting all the flags by introducing state and city flags. You can download it here: https://flaghunters.github.io/Extra-Flags-for-4chan/
What counts as a collectable flag?
- Poster is actually in the country
- Proxy (up to the collector to decide)
There is no real way to tell if a post is using a proxy or not. However, if you see a post with the name "PK" outside of the Netherlands, or tripcode "!Rarityvxes" outside of Australia, it is almost certainly a proxy.
Trading flags, or saving images that other people upload, generally doesn't count unless the flag is otherwise unobtainable.
I used to have more than this, but I lost my map and had to start over last month
Any tips before I give up?
Are African and pacific islands flags more common in /sp/?
Need more rare regions desu, please install the script lads.
Is something like this what you mean?
If so, it seems a bit superfluous, but it would definitely make things a whole lot less confusing. Sounds like a great idea.
I need 12 more. Last 3 I wouldn't hold my breath for:
1. Côte d’Ivoire
2. Burkina Faso
3. Saint Martin
5. French Guiana
6. French Southern and Antarctic Lands
7. Bouvet Island
