    It was founded by an italian Kivan. And I think we are/were hosted in France? (Costello?)

    I guess you can classify it as French since the servers are in France next to Costello's pr0n collection. In reality we really to diverse of a community to be put into one country.

    The site was founded by THREE Italians - I'd assume it was also hosted in Italy.

    The site is currently being hosted in France, with the majority of staff coming from Europe.

    The majority of the community are Americans.

    So a mixture of the above really as there's no one way of defining the "nationality" of this site.

    That's why it's a .net site.

    Yeh dice (and other repliers) are right. Although the majority of staff are European, we're really an international site. We've always tried to make the site appeal to everyone worldwide, especially considering all the competitions we've done are open to anyone and everyone.

    It doesn't matter whether it's a .net .us .co.uk .co.us .tv .com .co.nz .co.cz or any other of the 1000's I own many .net websites and a few .com and 1 or 2 .tv websites and I'm British.

    The best research for finding this information out is going to who.is and typing the web address. It gives you information on the owner, server and where it's registered and hosted.

    I know it doesn't matter whether it's .net or whatever but it would be more likely to be a British site if it was .co.uk.

    Ca va bien! Et toi? (i took french 2 [​IMG] thats about the only real thing i can say)

    But yeah, this site doesnt really seem to have any sort of nationality, because if you look at all the flags under usernames, you'll see a whole different bunch of em.

    There are a few American mods like me self. Not a whole lot but a few.
    It's actually kinda cool how diverse the community here is. Have a few folks who live in the Land of the Rising Sun too. One of my favorite things about the 'Temp. [​IMG]

    Maybe it's just me, but the English spoken here seems to have a bit of the British influence in it.
    Probably just me
