The International Magical Location Device

The title says it all!

...Actually, the title says "The International Magical Location Device" and probably needs an explantion from me.

Basically, one of our members, Tiberius wanted to see if we could have a poll on where you all live, not street address or anything like that, but country, continent. These types of stats are available to the admins but not widely available to anyone else and it would be good to see if our stats add up.

Generally the most users from one nation is the USA, followed by the UK, then Australia, Canada and Europe. This poll will see if that demographic has shifted at all in recent months.

Remember, we're asking for where you live now, not where you were born.


Please note - We do not wish you to give any more information in this thread, so do not fill the thread with personal details. They will be deleted. You are welcome to tell others what you voted for in this thread, but that is all.

Could be a difference in the active users location than the total user location.

I voted for Germany, even though I'm not living there right now. I lived there most of my life and I'll be moving back pretty soon. Can't wait!

Why do we have Oceania listed when it comprises mainly Australia and new Zealand, which are listed elsewhere in the list?

I'm from the US. On the forums I've seen almost as many UK people as US people, but UK only has 13% in this, while US has 51%. Maybe US users view this part of the forums more? I for one don't usually come here.

I thought this too but concluded that I may have been misinformed and let it go. Was I actually correct in my assumption or does Oceania include Papua New Guinea and other island nations?

We used to go to this site ( http://www.ilike2learn.com/ilike2learn/oceania.html ) in class and as you can see there are quite a few islands that belong to neither Australia or New Zealand in that region so I'm guessing those count towards Oceania, I might be mistaken though.

I live in Australia. I had guessed that most of the members would be from the USA, that's the way it is on most of the other boards I go to. I thought the UK would make up a bit more than that, though.

‘And now – piertotum locomotor!’ cried Professor McGonagall. And all along the corridor the statues and suits of armour jumped down from their plinths, and from the echoing crashes from the floors above and below, Harry knew that their fellows throughout the castle had done the same.
‘Hogwarts is threatened!’ shouted Professor McGonagall. ‘Man the boundaries, protect us, do your duty to our school!’
Clattering and yelling, the horde of moving statues stampeded past Harry: some of them smaller, others larger than life. There were animals too, and the clanking suits of armour brandished swords and spiked balls on chains.

Er, well I only go to school in the US so I'll have to say where I'm from and that's Trinidad and Tobago. Quick question for the thread starter though, why isn't South Africa included in Africa and why isn't Israel being included the Middle East?
