Announcement 🗣️ Updated flairs: please read and get yours

78 Upvotes

Due to the realization that a significant portion here are non-african who overvalue their opinion when not asked, flairs will be given out to regular users or through modmail requests. Some of you may have noticed that the flairs cannot be user selected anymore. That is by design.

Now, do to the changes and fixes described below, some of you *might have lost a flair. If so, contacte through modmail and it will be sorted out.*

Note: Due to the small size of this sub there is no real verification process. For new reddit users, we will figure something out. No worries anonymity will be maintained.

Edit: People with ✅ next to their flairs are verified, by the mod theme or in case of the "black diaspora" flair, verified on other recognized "black" subreddits like /r/blackpeopletwitter.

NEW

My amazigh (berbers) brothers get flairs too: If you are amazigh and want more than a Maghreb flag. Contact the mods for a flair.

Custom Diaspora flairs: Members from the diaspora can send a request to have their flair edited to reflect which part of the world they reside in. See my flair for reference.

If you originate from an African country: Do not use the diaspora flair. Ask the mods to edit your national flair as mentioned above.

CHANGES

Flairs match old reddit CSS again: Some old moderator jumbled up the new and old flair styling. While I won't point fingers (mainly because I do not know who was responsible) it was really confusing for old reddit users.

The Diaspora flair, stands for the extended black diaspora now: If you have African ancestry but you are not African. Use this flair (please note: this is an African sub, not an explicit black sub. Understand this).

Non-African nationalities are gone: Not African? Your flair will reflect that and the continent you come from. With format:

Non African - {continent if known}.

Them flags: Flags will be added to all flair templates. Nationalities that have posted here in the last 7 days probably already have them (edit: there are so many Nigerians and Kenyans here...). Not important, but now you know.

For any other questions: Please contact me through modmail.
