    So which continent would NZ be a part of, if any? I seriously have never thought about it until I read your comment. What is Iceland part of? Now you've got my curiosity going!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    New Zealand and Iceland are islands.

    I had to look it up...


    Islands located near a continent are generally considered, in a geographical sense, part of that continent. Greenland, for example, is politically part of Europe but belongs geographically to North America, as do the islands of the Caribbean and the western North Atlantic Ocean. There are some islands and island groups, however, that are not considered part of any continent, geographically speaking. New Zealand, Hawaii, and French Polynesia are among them.

    ETA Iceland is, bizarrely, both in Europe and North America.

    Unlike neighboring Greenland, Iceland is considered to be a part of Europe, not of North America, though geologically, the island belongs to both continents.

    Could have been a distant cousin of mine who is now retired but for many years was captain of one of the UK's polar exploration vessels and spent a lot of time in Antarctic waters.

    Global?

    So....WS is a North American community with a few foreign participants. Or so the poll results show.

    Maybe instead of Australia on the list, rename it Australasia (which would include New Zealand, New Guinea/Papua New Guinea), and also include Oceania, which would include Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia.

    Strange. I saw the post by MaryG12, under most recent thread replies. However, the post itself is timestamped with 5-13-2017, 06:18 PM

    System error perhaps? Or I am seeing things. Yeah, go with that

    I think it happens when someone votes in the poll. It will pop up as if there's a new post.

    Thank you bluesneakers! I did verify the original post (5-13-2017) and your explanation covers the pop up. Phew.
