Online Users & Country


I noticed what really seems a bug when displaying the list of online users. Indeed, the country seems completely wrong ! (which would explain the awful lot of German people... 😉

It is not related to the sorting functionality apparently.

    Yes, there are a lot of German people, but that is not why you see all the flags. When they look at the list of people in the forums, the country of origin is picked up from the IP address of the proxy server they connect through or the IP address of their PC if not connected through a proxy. For instance, if I was to connect to the Uroam VPN server in Waldorf, my ID would show a German flag next to it even though I have US as my country in LDAP as the proxy server I would be using would be one of those in Waldorf.

    Best Regards,
