I’m afraid I lacked the precision I normally aspire to (all too often), but the post was really about number of users by geography, or alternatively their posting habits by culture. During the day I might look at the board every couple of hours or so during the day, and (subjectively) there are very few posts until early evening, and the regulars come on, mostly I’m guessing from west of here.
It may well be that European users mostly work (and hence are not posting during the day), and I just assume that they are American for a number of reasons.
None of this is even remotely statistically sound. I should also add that because I don’t work I tend to be at my PC for most of the day, which working Europeans would not be.
I just thought it would be interesting to get a feel for the distribution from @davide …
I also get the feeling than many users here (disproportionately ?) are, how can I put it, past the first flush of youth and remember when their girlfriends of yesteryear wore suspenders and stockings.
I suspect it’s probably just that there are more of us (in the United States) than many other parts of the globe, only China and India has more citizens. Obviously, a lot of places in Europe have a higher population density than many parts of the US and the EU over all has more people than the US. But the US typically has more buying power. Not bragging or trying to make a point other than just saying why there are often more US users than other parts of the world.
In every product and piece of music and video game I have been involved in US is always the biggest market unless its thematically targeted toward a culture (anime / Japan etc). Call it what you will but it’s the largest consumer based capitalist country in the world. Our team are very fortunate to have the backing of users in the US.
