What linguistic information do you suppose they'll draw from, say, a Swiss flag? :)
Over on another forum, someone put up a slightly odd post suggesting that using flags in avatars was inappropriate. The wholly predictable result was that for the next few weeks, everyone changed their avatar to show a flag. Even me, and I never change mine.
Will auto-cropping still work if you use a flag? Those who have snooped know that my profile has a picture of Leela-- and they auto-cropped it flawlessly, including the ears. Someone else hereabouts uses a cartoon figure. What if you're from, uh, I forget which country's flag has the pointy bits along one side?
