There are a ton of users from all over the globe, and I was wondering, what user do you associate most with a certain country.

I was inspired by a recent post in the hardcore Beatles thread

Like when I think of Ireland and users, I think of AppleScruffJunior

What are some other user country representatives that you can think of?

Ireland - AppleScruffJunior

Germany - Martha

Canada - WeepingAtlasCedars

Australia - The Hole Got Fixed

Netherlands - Mademoiselle Kitty

Japan - C.R.A.

Philippines - HongKongLady

O'Boogie - India

meanmistermustard - Scotland

Macedonia - ScrambledEggs

Iran - another one

Pakistan - StrawberryFieldsForever

(Note: No offense is meant if a user isn't nominated or added to the list, there are loads of users from the US alone and they can't all be the representative.)

That's an interesting question. I really can't think of a representative for the US or the UK because there are just too many. But for me the following is true:

Canada-WeepingAtlasCedars

Australia-The Hole Got Fixed

Again, as Starr Shine? has already mentioned, this is not meant as an offence and I am also well aware there are more members in Australia and Canada like ewe2, Elementary Penguin or vonbontee but these were the first I had to think of.

I think for the UK, we can count the countries inside like, Scotland, England, Wales as their own countries sinve the UK is a country of countries.

O'Boogie for India.

I agree there are too many American and British users to identify any one with either country.

I think of Linde for Netherlands, she being the original Dutch poster in my books.

 

I am happy to take on the role for Ireland...seeing as I am the only active Irish user.... a-hard-days-night-paul-10.

 

Trcanberra could always be the Welsh representative because he is originally from Wales whereas Joe is English. 

 

U.S can always be split into the different regions, Midwest, Northwest, and what have ya.

 

Question: Am I an 'Ireland' representative (like in the rugby) or 'Republic of Ireland' representative (like in the soccer)?

I am gonna veto the US split. This is countries not regions.

And it is by counties so you would be the Ireland reprisentitive.

I think I have a plan:

England: Joe

Scotland: meanmistermustard

Ireland: AppleScruffJunior

US: Starr Shine?

Canada: WeepingAtlasCedars

Germany: Martha

India: O Boogie

Philippines: HongKongLady

Netherlands: Mademoiselle Kitty >^..^<

Japan: C.R.A.

Australia: The Hole Got Fixed

Scandinavia: Linde (not sure if she's from Norway or Sweden, so I just said Scandinavia)

Countries yet to have a person associated with them:

Mexico, Wales, Northern Ireland, Any country from Africa or South America, China, Greenland, Iceland, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, And a lot of others.

Also, thanks for letting me know that WeepingAtlasCedars is from Canada, Martha is from Germany, and O Boogie is from India, I never knew that, I thought they all lived in America at first. Also, are we counting areas like Puerto Rico and Guam as countries because if that's the case:

Puerto Rico: moriz

No to Puerto Rico since it isn't a country.

Als Greenland is in a strange situation between country and territory.

There are other places in strange situations.

Ah but if we're talking strictly countries then I'm RoI Representative, as Northern Ireland is a constituent country with the UK, and the RoI is an independent state.

I know we had an Iranian named @another one but he/she doesn't post very often

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Thanks much for nominating me! I feel honoured! a-hard-days-night-john-1

However, would we have decide between I and the VB brothers as representatives? Or could we have us both be representatives (co-representatives)? I'd be more than happy to share! john-lennon-salute_gif

No sharing. There can only be one. Not even the Bontee bros can share.

We have disagreements over Australia and the Netherlands, but apart from that, pretty much everything we agree on.

If the purpose is to stimulate cross-continental conversation, how about adding your countries flag emoji to the signature line.
