Hi rdmaloyjr,

Well this might get cleansed as being utterly off-topic by nature and intentionally so, but it is also true that all our flags were removed from under our avatars in the forum. A fact that Pavel has to admit.
So nobody really knows now where all these people/posters hang out now. My flag is red white and blue,
that is the Dutch flag, I am a citizen of the Netherlands, a EU country.
My wife has a flag that is white and red, and that is the flag of Poland also a EU country, so
we as a pair both are citizens of Eurolandia,

Where are our flags??????

I'm originally from Maine but live in Virginia.   Several months ago I went to Denny's for breakfast & sat at the counter.  A few minutes later a man sat down in the seat next to me.  A while later a waitress came to take our orders.  We were strangers to each other, but soon discovered we were all from Maine.

What are the odds that three Maine-iacs would meet together in Virginia, two setting next to each other with the third taking our food orders?

BTW, Tammy was the best waitress that Denny's had, unfortunately she moved back to Maine.  It's no surprise she was the best watress....She's from Maine! ;)

OK, I put another pin on the map, not exactly accurate, but in the general area of where I live--north of Dayton, Ohio, surrounded by cornfields and cows.

You will find my pin in the southeastern corner of North Carolina, USA.

Marc57, I have many friends in WV and have been all over that state in the past 30 years. I've been through St Marys & Parkersburg quite a few times. Most of my friends live around the Charleston area.

The map used to have hundreds of pins - many avast users used to have their choice of flag ... a pity it is that some thought could not have been given to preserving these before there were changes to the forum software that have produced no immediately noticeable improvements.

alanrf,
You have made my day.  I was afraid to mention the flags again, and was disappointed that so many people hadn't replaced their pins.  I am glad to see the members in the USA are increasing.  Where are all the pins from the UK and EU?  I know a few have replaced them. 
I am hoping we will get our flags back too.
I am from Maine also!!! Although originally from Massachusetts, I have lived in Maine since my husband retired 20 years ago, so I think of myself as a Mainer.
