So this is just a random oddity that has confused me for about 2 months now. I have a flag counter on my profile, and the flag counter site lets you see visitor information broken down by province for Canada.

Now, I live in Ottawa, and there are a large number of people in Quebec, so I can understand a large proportion of my Canadian visitors being from Quebec, but this breakdown is just weird.



Can anyone explain why nearly 90% of my Canadian visitors are from Quebec?

Maybe there's just a ton of gamers there. Down here the larger cities have a higher number of gamers.

Also could be that they are searching based on distance from them. I think that there's a feature that can be enabled to search based on that to find local gamers.

Maybe Québec geeks are more used to checking people's profiles (to verify if they speak french?), whereas other Canadians don't have this urge as everyone here speaks english anyway ? Just an idea.

Have you ever been in the Montreal Math Trade? Or it could be your cologne.

Maybe the flag counter isnt accurate?
a quebec ISP could be providing internet access outside of quebec?
I honestly don't know how a flag counter works.

or maybe we're just watching you...whistle one wrong move and we'll accuse you of Québec bashing...devil

Heh, I was actually in Quebec just a few days ago, for a ski-trip/long weekend. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating, despite the fact that I was the only person of the four of us that really spoke any french (and I'm really not that good at it - I can read and write, but oral communication is rough).

probably because a lot of gamers are from Gatineau. And most ontarians will look for Toronto. Ottawa is not very far from Montreal also.
