    Proper "Where are you from?" WITH POLL

    I've seen 2 threads with this title, but I was disappointed twice because there was no poll, and so you can't just take a quick glance and look at it. So, here's a poll to go with it.

    I tried to cover all areas of the world with the few options I have, so I'm sorry if your country is just mashed up with one of the more general options, I'm not trying to discriminate anyone. I really really tried to cover the whole world with the limited 10 options that these forum polls allow, I am not trying to discriminate anyone. I'm really sorry about the "Europe" option that covers a lot of nations on it's own, but I couldn't think of anything else.

    (Maybe condensing US and Canada would be the best fix, but I also wanna see the #s of US vs. Canadians so yeah)

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    What the fuck does South America have to do with Spain and Portugal? Because Brasilians speak Portuguese? So do parts of Africa.

    You should had put Spain and Portugal with the Europe option, the first thing people will think when they see that is that you think Spain and Portugal are in South America.

    Romania, that counts as Europe or Russia and bordering friends? We don't really like Russia, so I'll vote Europe.

    Uhh... then you should have put France, Italy, Romania and their bordering friends there too, I have to agree that putting Spain and Portugal with South America wasn't best option.

    Middle East is more of an Asia thing than Africa!
    Middle East ∈ Asia

    Geographically that is correct but usually Middle east is grouped up with North-Mid Africa due to ethnicity, language, culture and religion. For example most international companies have a MEA branch (Middle East & Africa) which is different than their IPAC/Asian branches

    I think the OP did a fine job sorting out locations like that. 10 options is just not enough to be accurate.

    I also support his South America/Spain/Portugal option since a lot of countries there were colonised by the Spanish, and Brazil was colonised by Portugal, so language-wise and and some thing about their cultures are related, so no problem with that, I would say.

    Scandinavia and UK groups are also fine. It is Europe, but they are a little bit detached, coming to think of it.

    It is hard to sort things out like that, but it was good enough IMO

    This poll is massive fail due to the limited options.
    Following the same line of thought, there should only be 3 or 4 options in the pool, Portugal, Spain, France and GB because they colonised the rest of the world?

    This makes no sense but congrats on the effort.
