Daily reminder that using flags based on IP is a great mistake. Just add the historical flags we made on /qa/ and make them selectable, there will be less shitposting.
How to make flags for /his/:
>TAKE A FLAG
>SCALE IT TO 16x11
>PUT PIC RELATED ON IT IN GIMP
>CHANGE THE LAYER TO "Screen"
>DONE, POST IT HERE
Flags that countries had in the past. Pic in the OP is flag of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the one in >>331 is the flag of Austria-Hungary. The idea is to have a menu in which you would select which flag you want to have, like old /pol/. It will prevent memes like on /int/ and /pol/ where people from few countries cant post anything without being shat on and will make /his/ nice
HIRO PLEASE LISTEN TO ME
Flags and IDs are not what we need
Please, don't make this any different from other boards, take them off
Also we need a sticky post clearly stating the rules of the board, please
Please Hiro, /his/ is a dream come true, make sure it doesn't become shit
I'm against IP flags, but for a board like this, what's the issue with IDs? I think the aim of this board should be to be as objective as possible and promote actual discussion, and with IDs it'll be easy to tell when a /pol/tard is stirring shit.
IDs seem like a good idea for the time being desu, obviously people will be arguing about historical matters so won't it be necessary to keep shitposting to a containable level?
I agree with replacing flags with historical flags tho
Wow, Hiro actually did some things right
I really don't like the IDs, flags are acceptable, but the IDs are shit
This isn't /pol/ and I fear that IDs will just encourage it to turn into /pol/ 3.0
Thats all, as you see there arent many. So go and make more.
I feel entirely the opposite. I think that IP flags will turn this into a "role play your country" type shit-hole like /int/. I haven't seen much good argument against IDs, though. I think they'll help the people on this board who actually know what they're talking about identify the people that are clearly just trolling.
Look, after you scale the flag down and got it ready put the black overlay on it and do what pic related says
I don't LIKE flags, but they're not as stupid as IDs
IDs just rub me the wrong way, the old 4chan got by just fine without them
I associate them with shitholes like /b/ and /pol/ so the history board having them makes me worried for its content and quality
Hey,I want to post under that flag but with ''Papal states'' written
>Daily reminder that using flags based on IP is a great mistake. Just add the historical flags we made on /qa/ and make them selectable, there will be less shitposting.
Just admit you don't want people knowing you are from poland
flags and ids are only a necessity on boards that cannot operate without kindergarten tier supervision
there is no reason why /his/ should be another shitflinging ethnocentrist meme board. remove flag. REMOVE.
Sorry about that, I have no idea how it got to 22 pixels wide
Anyone here profecient enough in GIMP to tell me why it's setting it to these sizes when I set it to 16x11?
Guys, stop spamming the other thread asking for the selectable flags. It will discourage Hiro to do it, no one likes getting spammed with one thing all time. If he thinks its worthy getting added, he will add it.
I had this problem, just deselect the chain looking things next to the scale numbers and it will unlock
Also r8 my flag
