I'd like to suggest a Regional (or country-specific) Poll section, whose purpose is I believe self-explanatory. There are a number of poll questions (gross annual income, average rates, etc.) whose results would be extremely interesting if broken down by country but essentially useless if asked of the Proz community in its entirety.

OK, so call me nosy, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd like to have an idea of how my income compares against that of my immediate colleagues!
And more seriously, given that a large part of the discussions on the site are to do with ever-decreasing rates, it would be interesting to see whether this is really borne out on a regional basis.

Good idea Nov 27, 2007

I also think it's a good idea. For instance, we could have 'Regional Poll' days and have several active polls only in those days that we could chose to activate, like My Poll/All Polls. It could be interesting.
