    Country Stats??

    I was looking at the country stats for the lounge and need to ask... What is the difference between United States and USA, and between United Kingdom and (England, Scotland, Wales)?
    Regards,

    The difference between United States & USA is about 9 letters and a space. The difference between United Kingdom & England, Scotland, Wales is Northern Ireland. There are 4 countries in the UK Rudi...

    Seriously, I suppose the only difference is how users decide to show their location, though from a pure stats point of view it skews the results rather a lot doesn't it? It should be one or the other really, to avoid confusion and give accurate numbers.

    This is the Lounge Matters Board...Not Puzzles Lyra! Good answers though! As you say, its the profiles that skew this. I didn't realise this till you mentioned it! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    When you have time Hans...To me it ain't crucial! Supplying answers to posts is more NB than the stats! Cheers

    Re: Country Stats??

    The list of countries now contains "United States of America", and the profiles of all USA/United States loungers have been updated accordingly. The Country Stats will reflect this change.

    Re: Country Stats??

    Hi Hans,
    Notice that there is both "Northern Ireland" and "Ireland, Northern" perhaps these should be combined (that is if they aren't combined with Eng, Scot and Wales into Great Britain). In an effort to achieve Lounge Pendant, Geographic divisions, trainee level XVIII can I also suggest;

    Hong Kong merged into China (or amend to be Hong Kong SAR)
    Czechia - is this the Czech Republic or one of the Russian Republics? Assume its the former and suggest you use the English spelling.
    Russian Federation is the formal name - Russia being the more common and follows the usage of other names.

    Just my <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15>

    Thanks, most of these are remnants from when it was possible to type the country yourself.

    I'll leave Hong Kong for the moment, but I have followed your other suggestions, and also made the entries for Serbia and Montenegro/Yugoslavia consistent with the dropdown list.

    I don't believe Czechia is the Czech Republic - I've certainly never seen it spelt that way - they tend to spell it Česk

    Too late now, but out of the 4 Loungers whose country is Czech Republic, 2 are from Prague, 1 from Ontario and 1 has a signature "Cheerz from Scotland" <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
