Previously in the Stack Exchange 1.0 version there were tags that contained flags for the regional type of questions. Considering that our community came from various regions, it was really helpful for spotting questions that were specific to Canada, United States, United Kingdom, etc. Will they return for the new beta?
I hope so. If nothing else they made me think an extra beat about any answer I glibly typed out. That extra beat made me check my facts on a .gov website which could only lead to better answers.
