Country flags missing since newest beta server version?

Do you miss the country flags too?
Example:

IIRC there has been country flags around the two letter country codes.
Maybe that has been some magic from one of the Jesus-Userscripts?

No flags here too - I think they have run out due to all the DM release countries being added :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Logos for links are also down, clearly some issue with static images. Hopefully can be fixed in a day or two :slight_smile:

Why are these as images instead of using the unicode flag characters?

To use these you just need to use the two character country code and use the flag character for each letter.
To display the Australian flag the country code is AU and you have a Unicode flag A U+1F1E6 and a Unicode flag U U+1F1FA and when these are one after another it displays the Australian flag :australia:

Support for advanced Unicode features such as flag combiners or fancy emoji is not something you can rely on, especially e.g. for older mobile devices. If you look at the HTML, even Discourse replaces the flag emoji with an image.
