My country after registering for forum is China. Where do I change it to where I actually live.

The ip2nation database I use is not perfect. I'll see if I can add your IP as Australia into it.

There. A whole bunch of IP addresses were missing from the database. I found a great way to get all the Australia IPs at: http://www.ipaddresslocation.org/ip_ranges/get_ranges.php so I was able to at least add Australia into the missing group.

I'm sure in not too long someone from China will find they're showing up as Australia.

Thanks for that. Makes me feel better knowing I am an Aussie in Australia.

Isn't that strange. Shows as Australia with Australian flag when viewing posts, but shows as China with Australian flag when viewing User List.

Thanks for pointing that out.

That's because I load save the country at time of registration into the User database. I'll change that so the country becomes dynamic so fixes to the IP list will also fix the display in the User list.
