    Hi
    Just curious over the distribution of nationalities here in PF. Can we create a poll regarding this? Generally which country's people are more here?

    I'm pretty sure this has been done before, but it's been a while.

    I'm American, in Washington state (no, not Washington DC - think Seattle, Microsoft, Boeing, Space Needle, Nirvana, lots and lots of rain, Starbucks...etc. :smile:).

    It has been awhile, I'm sure demographics have changed.

    We have 10 categories I can put into a poll.

    Recommendations?

    Drat! You had my hopes up...I tried to find the alien option in the poll. :biggrin:

    We've had less poll options in the past, so aside from demographics shifting, there were even more missing choices in past polls. We probably still need an "other" category.

    France is in the list, but Germany isn't? Are you trying to re-start the Franco-Prussian War? :uhh:

    Btw, I don't see a "Germany" option in the poll...

    Edit: jtbell, you were faster... ;-)

    There are a lot of countries still missing. Perhaps we needed regions rather than countries so we'd have a chance of being more inclusive with the number of options available.

    Thanks Evo. Is there a way to present this poll in the home page of PF so that members logging in could vote before they start visiting the threads? That would ensure a good vote count. But I don't think that's possible.
    Anyway great work. :)

    I voted for the US because the Middle East is not a country. And also because I am a US national.

    4% of PF's members are from Norway. :smile:

    Unfortunately that has decreased to 2.7% right now, while the Netherlands is on 5.7%

    I think very few members of PF are aware of this poll. :sad:
