"Other" custom country in the list

So as you may know there are thousands for micronations, and some other countries that aren't on the country list.
I think there should be a “other” or a custom country (like when you sign in the gender you can put custom gender).
Like, if I would live in Sealand, what would I put in the country list?
(NOTE: I'm not living in Sealand.)
And this is not a country, but a micronation. anyway someone lives there.

Support to just have a “location” box where you can enter anything, then we wouldn't need the dropdown at all.

It might have to be limited in length to stop people putting their full addresses in.

Good point.
Also to prevent giving information there should be that you can only type letters, and only 16 maximum characters.

Yes, please. It should also have some filters to prevent things like this from happening:

Or things like “Your House” or swear words.

I think it would be hard to moderate that.

Why not just add ALL the countries to the list?

The problem is, that there are thousand of them, making list of them would lag the entire site. It would be hard to operate on 4000+ list on a average computer.
Also micronations.

So I think you should be able to Search for a country/micronation.

I don't know what you mean…
like 25 pages of countries/micronations, and a search bar?

Just a search bar. For example, you type “a” and you get a list of all countries with a. You type “arg” and you can only choose one: Argentina.

No, bad word detector is to prevent swears, it stops it, if someone bypasses it, then it's your job to report it.

I mean we can't just add more and more places where you could swear. That's more job for the moderators.

That's why I want to add the function of searching for a country. If we just leave it so people can write their country, no one will use it for that. They will write “Cool Scratcher” or something like that.

And?
Scratch Team lets you use countries like North Korea and Antarctica, you can even change it to TV. Remember scratch is for imagination

No it's not. A bot lacks the intelligence of a human, but can stop a lot of possible happenings. Bots can't scan images, projects etc so that's where the report button comes in.

Different people have different perceptions of what are countries and what are just parts of other countries.
