Re: Impossible Flags (Countries and Regions)

Except the AN flag, you may have the chance to get them.

Re: Impossible Flags (Countries and Regions)

You can get EH. HM and BV no, since MM completely removed them from their db.

Re: Impossible Flags (Countries and Regions)

.
I read in wikipedia that Heard Island & McDonald Islands (HM) is currently uninhabited, but that a scientific expedition is scheduled to occur in 2016. Is that what happened in the past? That they had set up an IP address in the IP address range assigned to their TLD, so were available then, but discontinued it? I'm not sure exactly how all that works. Is there a resource somewhere that defines the IP address ranges reserved for each TLD, and a list of them?

Re: Impossible Flags (Countries and Regions)

Also, what happened to Netherlands Antilles (AN)? That is one that I do have. I've had 3 visitors from there, the last being on March 27, 2011.

Re: Impossible Flags (Countries and Regions)

lieuwe, ok, I read it. It's complicated and I don't completely understand it. But if AN was dissolved in 2010, how were you still able to get visits from there until your last visitor from there at the end of 2012? They kept it in the database until then, and some visitors were then just attributed to being from AN even though they were actually from another political unit at the time?

Re: Impossible Flags (Countries and Regions)

The .an ccTLD still exists, but the IPs have all been assigned to the respective islands by the end of 2012.

Re: Impossible Flags (Countries and Regions)

When you check the country list on this forum you don't find: 
Antarctica
French Southern and Antactic Lands
South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands
US Minor Outlying Islands
Western Sahara

People without those flags get the message that the have a complete counter. 
Are they still collectable at this moment??? And when they are why you get the message:
"Congratulations! You are not missing any countries." when you don't have them.

As an example check missing countries at this counter with 244 flags >> http://s09.flagcounter.com/countries/xQW/

B.t.w. >> ​I get my last Antartica in Januari this year.
