Frank -- A "party"? I was under the impression that gatherings of piano players/lovers were referred to as . . . well. . . "gatherings".

I wonder if he'd like to host a piano forums party? [/b]
Hahaha, I'd go!

I imagine there'd be some great art to see.

Oh man... I guess none of them are Belly Dancers either, as I've never gotten a hit on my page from there either...

I mean, what *else* would they do with their spare time, they don't play pianos and they don't Belly Dance. Must be a dull existence... laugh

On the contrary! Singapore is actually number 7 on the list, which is amazing for such a small country. There must be a strong correlation between country's ranking on the Piano World List and it's GDP and standard of living.

And now for the countries that are truly missing:
Somalia
Burkina Faso
Mauritania
Congo (Brazzaville)
Liberia
North Korea

Any others?

Surprised Japan isn't higher on the list considering how wired and into pianos the Japanese are.

Could it be possible having a world map showing the user's density, like the one you posted with the USA members?
Sorted by continents, maybe? smile

As I have no idea about the amount of work a map like this would need, if it's something difficult to get just ignore my suggestion.

Merry Christmas!

So still no-one from the Azores, Central African Republic, Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, Comoros, Guinea-Bissau, Madeira, Marshall Islands, Mayotte, Nauru, North Korea, Pitcairn Island, St Pierre and Miquelon, São Tomé and Principe, Tokelau, Tuvalu, Wallis and Futuna, or Western Sahara?

And here was I thinking that this was an international forum wink

I think it's a language issue. English isn't that widely spoken in Japan.

Australia 3.4
UK 3.1
New Zealand 3.0
Ireland 2.7
Finland 1.8
Netherlands 1.7
Norway 1.7
Sweden 1.6
Belgium 1.3
Switzerland 1.2
Denmark 1.2
Hongkong 1.1
Malaysia 0.64
Germany 0.41
Spain 0.38
France 0.30
Italy 0.28
Philippines 0.18
