    OK we’ve done the international one a while ago but I’m curious to know what part of England you are currently in…

    I’ve used the big “euro-regions” deliberately so we get a rough idea but we can keep our privacy if we want..

    Would a UK one not be better so as to include the Welsh & Scotts?

    I did think about it but there’s a limit on how many options you get in one poll.
    we did do an international poll a while back (for all the world users) which had the UK split into all 4 parts (which I am trying to find) that most of the Scots and Welsh responded to.

    The other issue is that Welsh and Scottish regions are smaller, and cover more potential “party land” – this means more info that people such as old bill and landowners who also read here could use against us – especially if they just get the wrong idea due to paranoia

    The English regions are large – for instance the current definition of East of England contains both Southend and Cromer which is are over a hundred miles apart, and crosses many traditional county boundaries.

    A very large proportion of our regular users are from Scotland :laugh_at:its just they are all partying this weekend.

    it looks like I can just about get in two extra poll options (some sort of mod function) so I’ll see if I can add the two countries if not the regions.

    Dunno whether to count meself Scottish or Welsh – I’m living in Wales in me bus but from Scotland, where I’ve got a house, though before that I was in England and I was born in Spain – well the poll asks where we are now so I s’pose I’d have to go for Wales :crazy_dru

    UK geography is apparently the most complicated in Europe!

    a “region” is often defined differently according to the views of

    – the Royal Mail
    – the Ministry of Of Defence (Ordnance Survey)
    – the wider public sector
    – the BBC and commercial media (both have different boundaries)
    – peoples own individual perceptions

    and everyone has different ideas… (actually Bucks, Beds and Herts are a sort of “no mans land” which is “neither SE England nor East Anglia” – but Bucks is SE whilst Beds, Herts are East)
