Are you actually going to use any of these codes once they're added?

I don't know what's going on with that post. It has been posted multiple times, but the user always has two posts in the forum. Not sure if it's getting deleted and re-posted or if the user is deleting it themself and re-posting to make it show up as new. It's very similar to this post by a deleted user, which was apparently edited 156 (?!) times before the account was deleted. The one above has already been edited once since Linguoboy's reply. (For the previous times that it was posted, the number of edits weren't visible because there hadn't yet been any replies.) So I suspect something weird is going on.
If it's legit, I'd suggest making other posts in this forum using these languages even though there is not yet a code for them. You can make a custom flag using the "ownflag" tag, or just skip the flags when you post. I made custom flags for some of the languages I was studying, for a couple of years on this forum before flags were created for them. We're glad to have new members, post about what's interesting to you and the languages you are studying. The flags aren't necessary for this. If there's a need, they'll be added eventually, but there aren't many people here who are able to do that so it may take some time (and it's probably less likely to happen if there are no posts yet involving those languages, because it will seem like a very low priority if it doesn't appear that they would be used much).

Of the languages listed in a one of the previous iterations of this recurring post, the only one I've used with any regularity was Mobilian Jargon, which I used to include on posts in the Translations subforum. However, there's no flag associated with the language so I don't see much utility to having a tag. Those mass translation posts have become rarer with time and sometimes the OP asks folks not to use flags anyway and just write out the language names.

However, for reasons I don't understand, UniLang's official Language List uses "myn-" plus the official ISO code in capital letters for all Mayan languages, for example myn-YUA for Yucatec Maya. To keep it in line with the other Mayan languages, the Classic Maya code would be "myn-EMY".

Linguaphile wrote:There are quite a few languages in the Language List for which the flags appear to be "broken". I noticed this when I tried to put in the flag code for Aramaic:
(arc)

In the language list, it appears as a white box with a gray question mark inside, instead of a flag.
There are multiple languages that have this symbol in place of flags:

xsa Ancient South Arabian
arc Aramaic
arw Arawak
bue Beothuk
bph Botlikh
elx Elamite
ett Etruscan
khi Khoisan
kwk Kwak'wala
ruq Megleno-Romanian
blc Nuxálk
sog Sogdian
ckb Sorani
uby Ubykh
uga Ugaritic

I don't know how long they have been like that or even which flags they should use. Many of these, if not all, are languages for which it may be difficult to find an agreed-upon flag image. So maybe they are meant to have the white box with a question mark in place of a flag, but as of right now, even that does not work; instead the code produces a broken-image symbol, with the language code in parenthesis after it.

(xsa)
(arc)
(arw)
(bue)
etc.


Yeah, that happens when a flag is not available. But by default you should see a white box with a question mark. I just looked at the language list and it seems to be working now. Do you still have this issue?

Let's see....

(arc) Aramaic
(arw) Arawak
(bue) Beothuk
(bph) Botlikh
Yeah, I do. It doesn't show a white box with a question mark, it shows a "broken image" symbol like this one
Image
and then after that its shows the code that goes with the language. Is that not what others see in my post above? :hmm:
But I don't think these languages' flags are used much on this forum at this point and I don't think it's something anyone needs to spend a lot of time and effort trying to fix right now, at least as far as I'm concerned. If there's a quick fix, excellent - if not, just let it be.
