Hi all,

I can't change my flag ! I've try to change it with a new flag with the good dimension and wealth, but it don't work...

Why ? :(

Does the attempt to upload the new flag fail?

My flag is below 10 KB, but it will not upload.

Try saving it as a GIF or shrinking it. If you do not like the effect ask 1 Infinite Loop to tweak it or the NationStates Flag Service to make you a new one.

Or does the old flag remain even after a successful upload?

My flag isn't updating after I upload a new one/It says I have outstanding issues, but I've answered them/1000 other problems about pages not looking like what they are supposed to.

This is a problem with caching. The pages/flag/whatever is updating fine, but your browser is using an older version of the page when it is displayed. Caching is something your browser does to save bandwidth (especially for 56k users, who need all the bandwith they can get) by not re-downloading the same files every time it visits a page. Users with slower connections can use ctrl+f5 (force full refresh) to re-download the page just this once while keeping caching enabled if they want.

Well, you could try moving in and out of your region. That someimes works. Also, are you clicking the "Update Settings" button? It may sound condescending. but I've done it many a time.
