Ugly regional flags in Discourse


#1

Doesn’t anyone find the distorted and elongated flag disturbing one bit?


#2

I do… think it ruins the reading experience too


#3

It makes the reading experience significantly worse.


#4

Interesting, I don’t see any distortion at all.

It’s a mobile web issue. Not sure if it appears like that in the app and obviously desktop versions don’t have that issue as space isn’t an issue.


#6

I use Chrome to access the forums and I see it. The behavior is what prompted me to not use the regional flag.

@RosemaryOrchard, can you shed some light on why this happens?


#7

This plugin was asked for when the forum first went live, and so @joebuhlig added it, I’m not sure why the images get stretched.


#8

I just tried it via Chrome and I still see everything ok. But I’m only testing on a desktop…


#9

Looks like it was tied to mobile only. Give that a try. I think I have it fixed.


#10

It wasn’t mobile only as I am using Chrome on Windows machine at work. The good news is that I no longer see the stretched flags.


#11

Was it a Surface by chance? Or a netbook? Sometimes very specific devices can cause the system to load the wrong stylesheet.


#12

Dell Latitude 7480 running Windows 10 and Chrome Version 72.0.3626.96.


#13

Definitely odd. But if it works now, I’m not going to keep playing with it. Just let me know if it shows up again.


#14

Thanks! It’s fixed (iPhone)
