Hello!

I am collecting flags on flagcounter on my profile. I would really appreciate if you add me new flags ?

I can give you Slovakian flag back ?

My profile:

Hi!

 

Just added Massachusetts flag to your counter.

Ah, just found the embedded flag counter element on the profile of  https://www.geocaching.com/p/default.aspx?u=Dr.MORO. OK, I can add flags of MOZ and (for others, if not yet present) South Africa. Just would have to take a profile URL list with me for accessing them on O.R. Tambo Airport via WiFi.

 

In the past I've just visited this thread when I'm in another country and clicked on the distinct  user names for those that have posted in it.  I don't recall if I did that when I was in South Africa a couple of months ago.  One of these day's I'll add a post has has a list of profiles that can be used to quickly add flags from just one post.  So far I don't have any international trips planned this year, which for the past 10 years or so is kind of unusual.  Last year I traveled internationally on four separate trips, visiting 8 different countries.

Thanks for opening my profile - I now have US and CA flags. But no "more specific" flags for the specific states of the USA (or other regions/states/provinces of other countries). Is there the need to create a profile for every kind of "Flag counter component"?

 

You will need to open the link to your flag counter page, by clicking on the counter image itself.

Within this page, you will be able to see more details of which regions you have visitors from.

 

Good Luck & Cache On!

I'm seeing a flag for NY (New York....where I live). 

 

Flagcounter tip:  Be sure to visit your own profile when visiting another country.   I've been to Ethiopia three times but all before I added a flag counter to my profile so don't have the Ethiopian flag.  I've also been to several other Africa countries (and have found caches in 5 of them) but only have flags for SA and Kenya. 

 

 If you could add a flag from Mozambique to my profile I'd appreciate it.

I would really appreciate if you add me Mozambique flag. Have a safe journey!

I could visit profiles from Mozambique next two-and-a-half weeks (I am there on a business trip), but where can one see these counter flags? Not in the profile itself, I suppose...

Thank you so much for Mozambiq, it is so rare :)

I have visited everyone listed here.  Please add me as well.  I also have 10 TBs hidden on my profile page.  Each is hidden in a different way.  Enjoy!

I have visited your profile in three different browsers, but none of them could load your three counter links included in your profile:

http://info.flagcounter.com/RhkU

http://info.flagcounter.com/7W0v

https://info.flagcounter.com/35xi

 

I already found out that just visiting someone's profile does not necessarily load the counter pages, as there are myriads of banners, labels, statistics and other stuff on the profile pages. And the flagcounter server seems to be not reachable sometimes. So probably you now do not have some more access counts from Germany and Mozambique.

So I'm curious what brings you to Mozambique.   I've traveled for work to Africa 8 times but not yet to Moz.

I was on a business trip, working in Maputo at the Ministry of the Interior.

 

On the way to Moz and back I was also in Johannesburg at the airport and also loaded the profiles from the above list. But I do not know if all geocachers received the flags in their counters. Some of them have profiles that are overloaded with of banners, labels, statistics and other stuff so I cannot say if their flag counter pages were loaded.

I got one from Moz.  I work with a small company in Centurion, about 40 minutes from Johannesburg on the GAU train,  on a couple of projects.   If a proposal for a new project that I would be collaborating with that organization in SA goes through, I may add Uganda to my countries list (I have already visited 6 African countries) in the next year.  The project involves a consortium of over 100 African universities so it might involve travel to other African countries as well..

How would I add a flag counter to my profile?

 

Just click someone's Flag Counter, or go to http://s11.flagcounter.com/index.html

 

Set up what you want to have display and how, and then copy and paste the entire HTML code (NOT just the URL) into your Profile page by editing the "About' section in your Profile setting page https://www.geocaching.com/account/settings/profile

 

If you want to learn more about HTML code editing, just look at the actual HTML code of other people's Profile page, study and trace what they do. Trial and error, and that is the way I've self-taught how to edit HTML over these years. ;)

The web has much much more resources on HTML coding, obviously.

 

Good Luck & Cache On!

Thank you very much whomever have just accessed my profile page, from Nigeria! My 51st country flag!

Anyone from this forum thread?

Awesome, in any case!

 Not me.  I've been to Africa 8 times but never to western Africa. 

 

I just checked and my flag counter indicates that 3 people from Nigeria have visited my profile, the last on January 13th.  I got my first visitor  from Senegal on the 18th too.

Did anyone notice that there are no non-US profile views any longer recorded?

 

Due to the latest change in the way how images are embedded at the geocaching.com website, these counter will no longer work for counting flags (what they were designed for).

 

All profile views of all geocachers will load the embedded flag counter images via an images proxy located somewhere at the Groudspeak premises, so it will look like all profiles are never viewed from outside GS :mad:

 

For technical details, see
