GracePotter, you could have voted East and South-East Asia... Maybe your vote and M_M will cancel each other?

I didn't see if this was a multiple choice poll. What about us intercontinental commuters?

Re: The International Magical Location Device

I voted USA because I live here, but I think Muggle_Magic has a point. If you live in an ethnic community, Vietnamese, Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, Ethiopian, whatever, very often it's just like living in the home country.

Re: The International Magical Location Device

I can't believe I haven't seen this yet.

I voted USofA, which doesn't make me very unique I suppose, but that is where I am .

That pretty much reflects the proportion of US population among the total population who speak English as a first language.

Re: The International Magical Location Device

Yes, we have to take the language issue into account. Even if non-native English speakers actually speak it quite good, they might not want to spend their time at an English forum, but prefer one in their language. So we'll keep having more members from English speaking countries.

Still I love that we have so many different points of origin included.

Isn't India now considered to be "South Asia"? Or is that just a North American thing...?

Oh! It very much is! I did not read that properly; I should have voted South Asia.

Re: The International Magical Location Device

I picked South Asia, I live in India too.

On these polls, can't we see the results, ie. who voted for which option?

That's an option which needs to be instaled while creating the poll. If not done (like here) it unfortunately can't be changed back.

In this case I assume it was made on purpose though. Not all members want to give away where they coming from, even if it's more or less just by continents.
