Centroamérica no es un continente, sino un subcontinente (eso dice la Wikipedia), parte de Norteamérica (que es el continente en sí). Tienes la opción de Norteamérica (fuera de EEUU y México). Saludos.

A United Kingdom option, please?
We really shouldn't be lumped in with the Continent as there are many differences... most of them bad, as the UK is more like "USA Junior" these days.
Anyway as far as the Internet is concerned, the UK seems to make up a significant enough proportion to warrant its own entry.

Yes, I had thought about the United Kingdom, but this thread's aim is also to help me know how many Spanish speakers are here (that's why Spain is the only different option), besides of knowing roughly the nationality of our visitors.

You can vote for your right option, then post here your country, it doesn't have to be on the poll (it's my opinion...).

My feeling was that the UK is common enough among Internet users that there might be several here, and I myself would have been interested in knowing how many non-British Europeans were on the forum. Of course, that's because I'm speaking from a British viewpoint.
From the POV of a Spanish person there would probably be no real difference between, say, Italy and Britain, they're both just 'other European countries'.
So I guess it's just a difference in viewpoint.

It's no problem really, I just wanted to mention.
The thing about your other comment is that on many sites - including this one, from what I have seen - only some 30% or so of voters in a poll actually post in the thread as well... there ought to be an option that you must post in order to vote, but there isn't.

I think you will have gathered by now that I am British English dang it. There are FOUR countries in Britain, no matter what the UN says. I am proud to be English.
Yes, proud to be... completely hated by the other three countries. Embarrassed
Actually, the Irish are all right, pretty much. But the Scots and Welsh really don't like the English.
The Americans and Australians don't like us much either, and as for what the French think...

European. UK to be exact.

Aegis, it's not really that the Scots and Welsh don't like the English as a whole, it's that like the English, the Celts have their fair share of bigoted hotheads, but most of them turn it on their own big powerful neighbour or scapegoat. The English ones normally pick on the EU and immigrants, the Scots and Welsh pick on the English. And immigrants. The majority of the national bickering is just friendly sparring until you get an idiot who really thinks it matters you were born on one side or the other of an invisible line on the map.

Of course, without Scotland and Wales, Britian's culture would be vastly different and without England, Scotland and Wales would be little minnows in the big European pond. The Scottish nationals like to think they can be Ireland and get a strong economy, but they're deluding themselves. The world is in the wrong conditions now, even with oil.

Still, nice to see an Englishman with pride in his national identity who isn't a Weekend Patriot at the football.  Smiley

I hate football. ^_^
And yeah, I do realise I was exaggerating things a bit...

Funnily enough, I kind of guessed you were British from reading your stories.
Something in the overall writing style, it's hard to say exactly, but it was there.

I posted this huge text block in the most recent Stories Poll thread about how I don't seem to enjoy your stories the way I used to.
It was really horrible, self-pitying rubbish. I deleted it less than 5 minutes later.
I don't know what in the world I was thinking of, writing that nonsense... I guess I'm just in a bad mood today... v_v
Your stories are great, by the way. A lot better than the junky efforts I come out with.

I'm from the USA, although that's also a part of Oceania...in George Orwell's 1984  anyway.
