It would be a map of where CP members say they came from - rather than where they actually do come from. Look how many of our members choose USA as their location when it's plainly apparent that they don't.
I was brought up to respect my elders. I don't respect many people nowadays.
I think many members choose USA because it's default setting if you create a new account.
It's also possible that they don't want to tell from where they come (and in that case, many members don't see the "Anonymous proxy" option).
In some cases, my signature will be longer than my message...
I think that Chris should set the default location to "Low Earth Orbit" until they get round to selecting one.

I've posted one article with a lot of code blocks and I've updated it several times.
The creation went well, except for those code blocks.
Whenever I want to type something in the blocks, I click on the location to add the text, but I have to type very fast! If I pause for just 0,5-2 seconds, it jumps back to the beginning of the block. I often had to cut some parts from the start and paste it back where it belongs. If I don't watch the screen, it can also happen that I put a part on the right place, type a part at the start and a part after the start that jumps back to start, what makes an extreme mess... I have to puzzle my whole sentence back again!
I found some more people which had that 'jumping' problem, but it went to end of code block or even to end of article. I'm using the latest version of Mozilla Firefox, haven't tested other browsers, but read they also had it. Any fix for this yet?
The message "Your status enables you to edit or delete this question. Alternatively, if the question is incomplete or simply isn't a question, then please report it." pops up on the right of my own question. Well its actually not wrong as i would have permission got improve my own question. Just want to know if the part "Alternatively, if the question is incomplete or simply isn't a question, then please report it." would apply
I don't see any results. I know the search is on a bit of a lag because of how indexing is done (not in real time). So, if you create a post and then immediately search for it, you will get 0 results. I suspect the opposite is true too (searching for deleted items may produce results for a short time).
I have reset the password several times in CP and I am an expert at it, thanks to the lousy and vanishing and tricky menu for changing the password. Credit goes to the programmer who can achieve such a code - it is technically sound one, but programmed to reject any kind of password reject.
I wonder who will set it right ! I had already seen similar posts here on similar issues. Hope some one take this problem and get it done so that the password can be reset. I am quite happy with the contents and the above average quality of the content here..but it is a tough job to enter the site !
There must be 30 or so Spam posts all together yesterday, and the spam reporting mechanism isn't working - all it seems to do is report that downvotes are not allowed rather than mark it as spam.
How about creating a Spam forum, and giving half a dozen or so of the regulars the ability to move posts into it? That way we could clean up the site without reactivating downvotes? Just a suggestion...
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
I third your suggestion. The current series of Lounge posts by one "Jastinal:" are obnoxious.
I also cast my vote, worth 1/9,500,000, for these options, on the "flag" drop-down menu:
Violates Lounge Rules ... perhaps simplified to: "Not for the Lounge" ?
imho, replacing 'Abusive,' and just having: 'Violates Lounge Rules' would then, cover: not only what we usually consider abusive message content (defamation, slander, verbal assault, threats, etc.), but also posts that include NSFW, or non-KSS, content, inappropriate comments about religion, etc.
“Thus on many occasions man divides himself into two persons, one who tries to fool the other, while a third, who in fact is the same as the other two, is filled with wonder at this confusion. Thinking becomes dramatic, and acts out the most complicated plots within itself, and, spectator, again, and again, becomes: actor.” From a book by the Danish writer, Paul Moller, which was a favorite of Niels Bohr.
