I note that the country list includes England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland as separate countries, but unless I'm somehow missing it, I don't see Wales listed.
Surely there must be someone here representing for Wales.

I am as surprised as you are. Wales will be added. You may even notice that the first post on this page is from Wales.

I must say however that it is a bit like a lottery. Some people give full details while others supply very little information. Particularly difficult are those from USA where only a town name is given even though there may be many (I have seen eight) towns with identical names in other states.

The majority of British people only put the town or the county or just United Kingdom. Those who put Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland or England are in the minority.

You have already disclosed the fact that you live in New Zealand so I am not sure why you have posted this list.

Perhaps you might now go to Roll Call and introduce yourself as required in our welcome message.

I am an American living in Norway. I really love it here, Jeg elsker meg i Norge! I love the trees, the mountain that Norway is, I love being able to walk to the fjord and through the forest.

Having to catch a bus to Oslo is a minor inconvenience, especially when it is cold and there is ice on the ground. It is a long walk to the bus stop. But I really like it here. Ha det bra!
