Keyboard enthusiasts by location ...
« on: Fri, 14 October 2011, 06:22:10 »
Are you interested in keyboards ?  Post your country here !

The purpose is to get an idea of areas of the world that have one of the bigger keyboard enthusiast communities. I recognize that the Western world is really starting to take off in terms of mechanical keyboards and it amazes me how life runs in circles.  We are reverting back to the days of big heavy keyboards that work and LAST.  (Much like the days of muscle cars vs todays plastic hybrids)


So where are you located ?  

North America - 124
--USA- 99
--Canada- 27
--Greenland- 1

Central America/Caribbean- 2
--Trinidad and Tobago- 1
--Mexico- 1

South America - 5
--Brazil- 2
--Argentina- 2
--Chile- 1

Asia - 18
--Singapore- 3
--Vietnam- 4
--China- 1
--Malaysian- 4
--South Korea- 2
--Phillipines- 2
--Hong Kong- 1
--Taiwan- 1

Eastern Europe/European Union - 103
--Sweden- 12
--Germany- 19
--United Kingdom- 11
--Poland- 7
--Austria- 3
--Greece- 3
--France- 3
--Denmark- 4
--Spain- 6
--Italy- 3
--Latvia- 2
--Finland- 6
--Portugal- 2
--Switzerland- 2
--Isle of Man- 1
--Russia- 1
--Netherlands- 6
--Czech Republic- 3
--Slovenia- 1
--Norway- 2
--Belgium- 1
--Turkey- 1
--Hungary- 1
--Croatia- 1
--Slovakia- 1
--Belarus- 1

Middle Eastern Region- 2
--Israel- 2

Africa - 0
--South Africa- 1 (Yey finally)

Oceania Region- 26
--Australia - 24
--New Zealand- 2


Antarctica - 0
--

Country/region placement based on UN groupings

Since I wasn't able to do a poll I will try and keep this updated with results. Perhaps some marketing guys would want to reference this for an idea of interest levels and increase vendor support for your area.

Lol I knew you guys were going to make me Google countries. Geography is not my strong suite. But we will work it out.

I know we have a few Australians and Canadians and Austrians and Asians , just need the confirmations.

USA. Itd be kinda creeper like if we assembled a map with pinpoints by state, provience, etc (not city just for privacy reasons). But it'd also be cool.

That would be cool to do that.    There are web modules that allow that , some go by IP address and do it automatically and only list the ISP location.   I don't expect peoples city/province whatever though.

That's the cool part about GeoIP, it's not really that accurate at pinpointing your city.

USA here, too!
let me put together your keyboard! Special offer, $10 to assemble an "inifity" keyboard.

BTW I know a guy who works at Mawson Base in Antarctica (cycles in and out on multi-month cycles) and takes two 87key Filcos (I don't know what switch he is using nowadays) with him on every trip because he needs a board he trusts will work in some trying conditions (and frozen rubber domes are not so effective, apparently). Kinda doubt he's on GH though. If you are then you know who you are, give us a shout out.

Shouldn't iMav be able to provide accurate statistics? Website analyzing tools usually track this kind of thing.

But not sure if iMav's data would be accurate as eg I have either an uk- or dutch-ip address because I use vpn servers.

Sweden. I think that we are at least half a dozen members from Sweden here. At least three from Stockholm, that I know of have written that location in their profiles. There may be more that haven't.

Edit: So far, I have counted 26 members, including myself.

I am only updating those that actually post in the thread and want to submit their location as to some that's a personal thing (Never understood why since the data is always accessible to the ISP/IP)
