It would be really helpful if the 'sales' posts in the marketplace discussion
page had a stores country flag icon next to the username. To be able to see at
a glance would save us having to click on each post to find out. Personally I
tend not to buy outside the EU because of shipping costs and taxes.

Maybe I'm not understanding completely, James, but it does in the forum "Marketplace".....

We both mean in the forum thread listings, not the forum posts. Unless you click
on thread, you don't see the actual post with the seller's country flag.

Now, you've lost me...it does show when I use the entire thread feature

I guess, I'm missing the point. Wouldn't be the first time

Okay, I think I understand you both. You're referring to when you land on
the forum's Marketplace landing page?

In which case, a very good and useful suggestion! Voted yes

Thanks, Caleb! I knew I'd seen it somewhere.

I've thought this for a long time now; I agree and for exactly the same reasons.
It's a shame, as some U.S. sellers have great part-lists and excellent sales
- all negated by postage, import duty and P.O. charges (that are generally MUCH
higher than the actual duty).

I actually almost suggested this the other day. I would love to not have to click
on the posts as I rarely buy outside the USA.

You've got my vote.

For this reason i put [UK] at the start of the subject when I re-announce the
sales i'm always having.
A flag would be very useful - i'm always a fan of standardisation.
