Because we have members who want their individual countries recognized.....and if I did that, I might as well just list the continents.

The interest is in the specific geo locations.....
There are some countries which could be put together, such as England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Simply call that Great Brittain. And Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Simply call that BeNeLux...

Seems to me I thought there was at least ONE person here who is from there......
He just doesn't want us to be jealous... (I love Switzerland!)

Um, actually, England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are the United Kingdom. England, Wales and Scotland are, collectively, Great Britain. Mind you they drive on the wrong side of the road so, who knows what's what?

You could save some options by lumping together Scotland, Wales and England using Great Britain, or adding Northern Ireland and using United Kingdom. They all speak english, and they pretty much make a single market in terms of ebook sales.

Sinta-se livre para votar em Português para "A sua música, ea minha também".

(Feel free to vote in Portuguese for "Your music, and mine too".)

Your music, and mine too. La tua musica, e anche il mio. Ihre Musik, und meine auch.

You can even vote as often as you want.

The point of the poll is to find out where people are posting FROM, not their favorite places to be or former homelands.

You show "Canada" as your location......
