    LadyVader, you said countries (region) I asked aren't they kingdoms.

    Because I always thought that Wales, England, Scotland and North Ireland are kingdoms...

    never mind :p

    Yes they are countries, but they are not reffered to as Kingdoms.....them altogether make a Kingdom.

    But that's what FanForce is all about, ain't it ? ;)

    Voted yes for obvious reasons : like it or not, UK are a part of Europe, and it's not because they won't abide by some EU rules that they can change a bit of geology (yesm the British Isles are a part of the Eurasian tectonic plate :p )

    Much as we appreciate you considering us European, most of us do not consider ourselves European. We are British. This is probably just cos of one little thing - we are an island and no tunnel will change that.

    Scotland (has its own Parliament), Northern Ireland, Wales and England are basically separate countries, Eire is definitely separate. The term United Kingdom is perhaps a little outdated. Yes, our governmental organisation is about as confusing as we are 8-}

    Yeah LOL! But that's actually not ours anymore really. South Africa is not a former colony ;)

    Actually, I'm all for Europe being split into sections (for FF not in reality) - the European section is too big that's why it's messy looking. No offense meant at your menu design, just that Europe is not that small and it looks crowded.

    I go on the NorthEast from time to time - lurking :) Might start posting eventually.

    The US boards are listed area by area. To match that this one would only have the country on the index, with the various boards, or board as sub-indexed. That would mean Germany would have one entry that people clicked on and got the board listing. Kind of like a virtual Russian doll though.

    Yes, but they don't have more than one board per area :) They are organised in cities - what if Italy say, decided it wanted a Milan board, a Rome board, a Venice board etc. Only takes 3 requests and va va voom.

    I agree with Chariss,
    Our big countries, UK, Germany, France are like Us Region and may take place in the first page like Uk and like Germany was a moment ago.

    Smaller board with one entry per country may stay under Europe


    Page 1
    FF EUROPE - Bristish Isles
    FF EUROPE - France
    FF EUROPE - Germany
    FF EUROPE - Nordic Countries
    FF EUROPE - Others Countrie and General Boards

    Then in page 2 every one will have its own geographical subdivisions

    Right now I don't think we're to the point where we would need one board per country - it's not like any city in Europe is going to have its own chapter (only the capital cities could do that right now ?). Also the main page of the board would look really messy if all the european (plus, I assume, latin american, asian, etc) countries were enlisted.

    I wonder if we could be divided in larger areas though...

    You are not an island and the tunnel did change that...

    Last I checked I checked I can not go by train to Ireland, Iceland & Malta etc.

    Those are islands...

    People are asking for a seperate boards. But the problem is.

    Europe is the second smallest continent in the world and you want that we divide into smaller pieces.

    That would be weird.

    Page 1
    FF EUROPE - Bristish Isles
    FF EUROPE - France
    FF EUROPE - Germany
    FF EUROPE - Nordic Countries
    FF EUROPE - Others Countries and General Boards


    Besides splitting up would
    a. kill the Europe Region General Discussion board
    b. confuse our over sea friends :p (e.g they might search Denmark in other European countrie and General boards section...)

    To be honest the question is not the size of the country, but the size of the boards

    Anyways this questions won't make me insomniac!

    Let the boards the way they are : the fukks on their islands, the deustch people on their sauerkraut and the french people on their steak pom'frit and all will be well ;)

    Well, it's a peninsula:

    UK is surrounded by water but still connected to the mainland by a tunnel.

    See a peninsula :D

    Depends if you class manmade features as relevant to geography :D

    Naturally an Island ;)

    or

    Artificial Penisula.

    Don't know why Europe would want us anyway - we are far to embarrassing and badly behaved :D
