Some suggestions

A top list of games played ranked via time played by all users on average.

Game art is a bit small to be legible to the untrained eye, mouse over for larger album art image or game name text.

Extend last played game list to 5 or more.

Total time played online in general on user profile and/or a break down of time played in each game.

Red Dot with "Online or Live" text on the top right corner of profile to make it more clear who is online.


Thanks for the nice work, Keep it up :)

What browsers support the displaying of flags instead of country codes? I've tested a few browsers and haven't seen the flags. Just curious :)

Every platform but Windows: https://mspoweruser.com/windows-10-anni ... ssion=true

So Linux, Mac, Android and iOS should be fine. Go Microsoft!

Some really good and cool ideas here. Some should be easy to implement.

Some browsers ship their own, I haven't quite worked out the pattern on Windows, it may depend on Firefox version.

Android 4 won't support them as they didn't exist when it was released, and I'm not that surprised that Debian is lagging a little.

I can potentially ship flag icons, but that means finding a freely re-distributable set, and then serving them myself; probably easiest just to wait for system + browser updates :)
