Where do MBN users come from?

There was all this debate in the pipe trick thread, so I thought I make something out of my boredom and create a little map. It features all users that were active today and yesterday and had their location in their profile. If you browse hidden you're not counted. If you're only online and have never posted you're still counted, however.

Red: 10 active members
Orange: 6 members
Dark yellow: 3 members
Light yellow: 2 members
Green: 1 member

Lotsa britons here. And no Israelis who browse openly.

Really interesting, thanks for doing that, Kobold
I was about to ask a really stupid question and say how come the 1 green member comes from 11 countries, but I figured out how the piccy works :P
It never occured to me that so many members are Europe-based.

Meh, I'm just enjoying that function for a while

I know it's not new, but I had to give it a try.

I could update the map but I don't think it's worth re-uploading every time somebody requests it. I'd rather wait two days and count entirely new, then taking you into consideration.

How do you do the map? Is it some kind of automatic stuff?


Btw, I don't really care if I appear on the map or not. The results are tricky. :P

Naa, seriously speaking. It's OK. Good work Kobold.

I just go through the member list, search for members online the last two days, and check all of their profiles. I write them down in an Excel table to find out which country scores what numbers, then I get the blank Wikipedia world map, make up my own color code and simply fill the space in any random graphics program.
Just a matter of a few minutes.

It was .TakaM. If I remember correctly your location was something like "Citadel Island" when I looked you up. Or you hadn't visited for two days.
I can't extend the statistic to more than two days because that's too much work.

As I said before, it's pointless reuploading the entire map for a tiny change. Just wait two days for an entirely new one if you're depending on it.

Except for the "And" which is very bizarre...

Probably some bug in the multiple quote function.

So to sum it up: Multiquote function has a bug, in which the anti-allcaps function doesn't count the quotes in the multiquote and thinks the post is all caps ("123" doesn't have lower case letters in it). So it converts all letters to lower case except the ones in the start of a sentence. It only detected "And" to be in a start of a sentence. Sounds about right?
