We joke about the apparently vast number of Australians who appear here in the forums, but logically we are going to have mostly Americans I suppose. I thought a little poll, Australians, Americans, Brits and the rest of the world - so lets try it.
Where do you fit in the following choices
Only one choice allowed (1409 total votes)
American - USA - 541 (38%)
Australian - 138 (10%)
British - including 'exports' I suppose - 312 (22%)
Canadians - 124 (9%)
Europe - not UK - 149 (11%)
Rest of the world - 145 (10%)
Voting on this poll ends: 0 seconds ago

. You suppose?? I am still a Brit you know. Results so far are amazing, or maybe the expected ones are still asleep?

Since only one vote is allowed I voted 'Europe - not UK' (German). This is what I mainly see myself as, although I am very proud to have a bit of Australian in me

As soon as you vote you ought to be able to view the results, if not just refresh.

How do I see how the voting is progressing without voting again? And if I vote again, does it mess up the actual percentages?

Once you've voted, you should only see the results in Sue's post, and not have the option of voting a second time.

I voted once earlier today, saw the results then left FT for awhile to return later and couldn't see them anymore. In order to see them again, I had to vote again. I don't know if that messed up the totals, though.

I see the results, and I am really surprised. I expected the Brits, Aussies, and Canadians would come in ahead of the US.

I think the system only allows one vote per IP-address. So if you have a different IP address every time you log in, you can't see the results until you've voted again. Which will mess up the totals, I think.

I really thought the Aussies would rule this vote, as Sue mentioned. Wow, that many Americans huh?

Maybe the Aussies are just louder, so there seem to be more of them?

When I started the poll the Aussies were still up, the Americans were tucked up in bed.

I was a little surprised to see that we Americans have the lead so far in numbers. I knew there were a lot of us but I also thought that the other groups would have it since you 'make more noise.'

The percentage of Americans didn't faze me, just look at the propensity of American 'flavoured' Quizzes here! (from one of the LOUD Aussies! )
