Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

In light of the recent thread link, I thought I'd make a poll so all you handsome EFers can let us know where you're from.

I was gonna do all the cantons but I can only make a poll with 10 options, so excuse me if I forgot your location.

Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

I already told you I was probably gonna forget something and I did, so no surprise there.

There should be a central Switzerland including, Zug, Schwyz and Luzern.

Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

A bit north of centre -- is Zug (Cham) where I live. Lots of expats here, English-speaking ones too.

Sorry, ChemG, can't pick any answer on the poll.

...and if that isn't possible can they please add either "Zuerich's back yard" or "here there be Dragons" to the poll.

Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

Just did a very quick search of members, using the advanced member finder. We have a total of 8578 registered on here (obviously not all active or current) and of those 2235 have Zurich or Zürich as their location. That is over 26%. Interesting.

And perhaps there should also be a Talacker option

Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

Geez, I get it. I forgot Luzern. I already asked one of the mods to fix it, I am not able to fix it myself and I warned everybody that I was gonna forget something.

If you include "ZH" and "Zuerich" there's another 126 members in Zurich. However, I still fail to see how that's interesting

Sorry - the other thread which ChemGodess was referring to when she started this poll, was asking why there seemed to be such a Zurich bias to the forum. Lots of people were saying that they thought it was because of the job opportunities in Zurich etc. I just thought it was interesting to know that in the whole membership, over 25% say they live in Zurich. I do statistics, so you must forgive me if I am boring you

If I was the type that bored easily, I wouldn't have run my own search and bothered to calculate the delta from your results

Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

there was this thread, once upon a time, but I guess it's time for a recount.

Where are you?! [which part of Switzerland]

Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

Oh well I guess I get lumped in with Zürich and surrounding areas.

Re: Where in Switzerland do you live? [A poll]

That's it. Enough.

And no, I wouldn't be a true Zuricher as 1) I've never been to the Opera house and 2) I have no idea what you're talking about.
