Re: The International Magical Location Device

I voted USA...but I was wondering (this isn't an attempt to spread personal information) that since I live in Hawaii, if it would have been better for me to vote 'Oceania'? I guess since I'm a citezen of the US I voted there, but since my home is technically a rock in the middle of the ocean...I'm not totally sure. But then, if Oceania just those islands like micronesia and indonesia and things like that?

Almost, yep. I've linked you to the wikipedia article as I wasn't sure myself how to explain the construct in short words. But it's not Hawaii.

Yeah too bad
I think most of us read only the Dutch versions (although our English is pretty good in the Netherlands )

Re: The International Magical Location Device

I've voted some time ago, now I'm supprised that more than half are US. I ouder if it is representative, given that only 2231 of 74,106 srudents have voted at the moment. Maybe more people from the US are fond of polls

I'd expect it is representative of the people who visit CoS regularly and who take notice of interesting features like this, when they appear. Anyone who comes here often would have spotted it and most likely voted. Only a small percentage, I reckon, would be people who wandered about randomly and found this poll

Re: The International Magical Location Device

I found this poll to vote when it was in a prominent rectangle on the main page of the forums. I never understood why they took it down from that prime location, if they really want a somewhat accurate display of the nationality of their posters. I would never tell them how to run their forum, I like it too much to be telling any of them how to do anything.

Re: The International Magical Location Device

I'm from Malaysia, which is in the Southeast Asia! It seems that very few people from Malaysia come here, which is a pity, as I have very few real life friends who are into Harry Potter as I am. :/

I'm from the Republic of Ireland and I'm surprised there are only 26 other people from R.O.I. here because I know there are loads more in the country.

Well People's Republic of Cork wasn't added as an option.... So I plumped for Republic of Ireland. Close enough.

It's great to see people from around the world coming together to enjoy and discuss all things Harry Potter.
