Poll: Where do you live? Now with better poll options!

 Pages 1 2 3 4 5 6 NEXT
 

I've seen a number of topics based on statistics of the escapist community. but one that always has problems are ones about where people live. The reason being is their is only 8 poll options. So I think I've figured out 6 poll options and the rest in other that will fit 90% of the escapist users.

Sooooooo, where do you live?

Other Europe? Wouldn't that be counted as other?

OT: I live in Ireland, weather is pretty cold, but I do love it here, but a holiday in Florida is excellent each year.

In Argentina, so "other". I think there's like four of us in the site, no point wasting a poll option on Argentina. Don't know about South America though.

In Wales, in a valley... it rains a lot and there are dragons don't you know.

Nottingham, England, UK.

I'm personal buddies with Robin Hood, he lives just down the road from me.

Other Europe, the most important Europe.

Irlanda to be more specific.

Europe that is not Scandinavia or United kingdom.

Way more precise than this thread can be. And I've quoted this before, but their description of this community gets it so so right that it needs to be posted again:

Based on internet averages, escapistmagazine.com is visited more frequently by males who are in the age range 18-24, have no children, received some college education and browse this site from school.

I live in Leeds, England, the United Kingdom. It's alright, but I prefer going to Nottingham as I went to University there and a lot of my friends live around there.

Wales, in Cardiff... it rains alot but their aren't as many dragons as in the valleys.

On an unrelated note Captcha wants me to start gambling: Bet on Cheltenham at Betfair.

Kiwi reporting in! For those not in the know, that's New Zealand :D

I fluctuate between Birmingham, England, and my home county of Shropshire in England.

One is a city full of grim accents, big shops, canals and seemingly precious little else. The latter is a luscious land of cows, farmers, hills, trees and greenness.

Guess which I prefer...

According to that site 1.1% of users are in México, which is about the same as Irelan, and I've seen a LOT of Irish people, yet I only ever met one person besides me that lived in México, I've met a lot of Mexican users that live on the US though.

Scotch Bastard (as Binnsy so kindly called me) reporting in! Specifically Dundee, Scotland.

I know that there are a few others Scottish users on the forums like TimeLord, for example.

Ahhh, but what that site cannot say is how many of those visitors use the forums or are regulars. the kind of people who would be considered part of the escapist "community".

For example that site says the 46.4% of the escapists access comes from the US and 13.5% from the UK. But from polls like this in the past UK usually gets a little bit higher than the US. Which says to me that a much larger proportion of the site views from the UK are regulars than those of the US.

Cwmbran, Wales. Rains a lot but we can't afford any dragons.

The US of A, where the men bleed red and the beer is sub-par!

North Carolina, to be exact; we're the hipster South!

O',beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain;
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea.



-clears throat- 'Mericu! New Mexico[1], to be specific.
We're a blue state now! It's only a matter of time until Texas tries to consume us D:

[1] Great New Mexico look, with that great old Mexico taste!

Oh Canada,
Our home and native land...

Canada, or rather, unfortunately for me, being an Anglophone, Quebec! Which is apparently an awesome place if you're vacationing, but being born English in this province? Yikes.

Yorkshire, the one true home of pies and beer and mad Viking pride! Specifically, the city of York, where I attend university.

...that's the British York, not the Toronto one (although we do get the option to go there as part of an exchange).

I grew up in Birmingham, in the Midlands (which is a miserable grey shithole and is where my Dad's Brummie family live) and I've lived half my life in County Durham (which is a beautiful green paradise where my mother's Scottish family live) so I've pretty much fluctuated between the middle of England, the north of England and a halfway point between them.

Australia, Tasmania. In a rural village, not exactly exciting.

Southern Ontario, about an hour drive (or train ride) away from Toronto.

Buffalo, NY in the USA. Where Canada has done a hell of a lot more to help the people of western NY than the state government.

Wait people live out there, Cuomo made it seem that the only populated parts of New York were the Capital Region (where I'm from) and The City.

'Merica - the land of the free and the home of the double quarter pounder.

Missouri to be exact. Midwesterners unite!

Kaleion:

Alexa only measures internet traffic, not individual website membership and activity.

All it means is that 1.1% of visits to www.escapistmagazine.com are made from México, but not how many of those actually stay on the site and participate in the forums.

OT: Montreal, Québec, Canada.

The middle of Iowa, in the middle of the midwest, in the middle of the united states. So pretty much the exact middle of nowhere.

...not by choice do i live here...

We have a joke we like to tell around here. There are two things you can do in Buffalo.

Eat, and leave.

U.S.A, specifically Arizona - Where the weather is hot and the ASU girls are hotter

Yikes, I wished Quebec was more English friendly.
I assume you're living in Montreal which makes things a bit more manageable, if you aren't then I can see why we're a pain in the ass sometime. Have you taken French course (or planing to) or you're planing to move out of the province ? :)

OT: Canada, Quebec and yes I have been raised entirely in French. So yeah I'm ''one of those'' that the rest of Canada likes to make jokes about us. ;)

Ontario, Canada, home to Toronto, Ottawa, Parliament and Niagara Falls (the good side anyway). I live in a suburb near Toronto. Kind of boring, but safe. Nothing amazing ever happens here. Everything is ordinary.

Edit: Oh, also, it seems like everyone outside Ontario hates us for some reason.

Adelaide, Australia. It's rather boring here so after I work over in England for a bit I want to move to Perth over in the West.

Make that two of us from Argentina. Come on guys, I know the other two of you are out there somewhere!
