Demographics of F.DS
« on: December 30, 2011, 04:42:52 pm »

A comment in the thread about recorded Isotropic games and horrible American accents led me to wonder, where do all of our players come from? I don't want anything more specific than country of residence, as I just want an idea how diverse we are.

I'll go first: I'm an Asian that lives in the US.

Maybe this is better as a poll?  Also, theory has time zone data from the tournament entrants, which should be a decent sample.

Well, time zone data will give you some longitudinal information, but it's a good bit more ambiguous that country in a lot of cases... US being a decent exception (though there you can have like Canada and some parts of Latin America). But in Europe... lots of countries in only a handful of time zones.
Wait, how many time zones fit in your hands?

US, BTW

I've been wondering about this myself, good thing someone brought it up, although I think most of the players and posters here are from the US, but it would be nice to see some statistics about it. :)

UKish here, obviously.

I was actually going to do something like this before but I wanted to ask many more questions but theory couldn't find a suitable multi-poll mod for the forum software so I didn't bother in the end.

Grew up in north Jersey, went to school (both undergrad and grad) around Philly, currently splitting time between Philly, NJ, and NYC as I try to find a job.  I like the Northeast, we have four seasons and decent public transportation.

gl. Any chance I could know what county you grew up in? If you don't feel comfortable posting it you can PM. I'm currently growing up in Morris county.

I like it!  I live on the other side of the mitten in Holland.  For those Dutch people out there, it's pretty much the most dutch place in the united states.  :)

Wow, lots of Michiganders.  I'm originally from Greenville, Michigan, but am currently in San Diego, California.

I only know Michigan because of Detroit and Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine.  :P
Oh, and I know the capital.

I have a brother in Flint, and a brother in law in Holland, I think.  Is Holland near Grand Rapids?  If so then I'm pretty sure that's where the brother in law is.

I'm in Tennessee myself in case you couldn't tell from the accent I type in.

I would have been a Michigander, but you guys lost/won the war with Ohio in 1835.  At least, I think getting the UP's iron and copper in return for losing Toledo counts as "winning" for Michigan.  I did live in Ann Arbor for 7 years though.

For the Michiganders, I'll plug ConFusion--not a gaming convention per se but lots of gaming there along with the SF/Fantasy stuff.
