That PR is not a "permission" based PR. It is simply disallowing the viewing of the flags for guests and bots still doesn't stop the queries from running.Galixte de EzCom wrote:You can replace those changes with new permissions, but it seems you don’t want to improve this: https://github.com/RMcGirr83/phpBB-3.1- ... -147181268.
The extension allows to not show the flags on the index page.null2 wrote:Usually, guests go to index page to log in. In this page, its not necessary to show flags statistics to them.
Once this extension gets validated I may consider disallowing guests to view the flags BUT it would seem to not really be worth it. Even if guests know one's location, countries are, usually pretty large so quite impossible for them to be able to do anything with it. I have mine set to US I highly doubt anyone would be able to determine where in the US I am located based off of that. I highly doubt if I will include a completely new permission.
