Well, it's going the way I'm expecting, but we've not had a full day yet, so there may be a lot of people who are on at different times who have yet to vote. It's open for 4 weeks, so we've got a while.

And yes, JSR, there was a certain amount of that line of thinking, but more because I was expecting that other people might just want to be vague as well, and it's written that way because what I'm mainly wondering is the distribution between US and non-US members in the forum - it's about the 2/3rds I was expecting, but there are other patterns emerging too.

Hmm there's atleast 3 or 4 Dutch spudders.

2 french spudders that I know of, Cptn and that guy asking about hybrids in French.

There's a German floating around somewhere.

And Five_Seven who hasn't be on in awhile.

We need a language poll, although english or various corruptions thereof is the default language here everyone from non-english speaking countries knows at least one other language and it would be nice to know :)

Actually a poll wouldn't work for multiple languages unless it was huge... hmm...

That's why I put the France and Netherlands options on, because I could think of a few people that came from those countries. I wasn't totally sure about Germany, but it wouldn't have surprised me, so I added it.

I had a wonderfully complete list of just about everywhere I could think of, including an option solely for JSR, but then I was only allowed 16 options, so I had to hack it down pretty crudely.

Yeah I was just wondering where they are, i guess they'll show up in a few days. I'll sticky this.

Edit: Sorry about that, the hamster died and the wheel stopped spinning, causing us to momentarily lose power, as a security feature the topic was automatically locked to stop any data being lost.

I just managed to get the backup hamster back on the wheel and unlock the topic. Never fear, no data was lost in the power outage :D

Well, we've had a few more votes, but I know that some major people haven't put themselves on yet, we're still sitting at zero on both France and the Netherlands.

Two problems.

1) You need a minimum of 25 posts to vote in a poll.
2) The poll has already ended - it exceeded it's voting limits. There may be another one done some other time, but it's not going to be for a while.
