Hi Tobias,

Quote:
And we finally have to decide whether the home country counts or not.


Why should home country not being counted ? Roger has his reasons to consider Germany as his top country. No problem for me (France is only third on my list). As for Andreas, why should we ignore a systematic collector just because he focuses on one country ?

I agree with you about the count. Counting each answer no matter the number (from 1 to 10). My guess for Joan answer :

Nothern England = UK = 1
California = USA = 1
Afghanistan = 1
Pakistan = 1
Russia = 1
Burma = 1

Between 1 and 10 = ok. Other ideas of counting ?

Cheers

Christophe

Hi Chris, not to count the home country wasn't my idea (see beginning of this thread) and i'm also against that procedure.

It's next to impossible for anyplace to beat out Tsumeb, so namibia is my choice.

1. Pakistan
2. Afghanistan
3. Brazil
4. China
5. USA ( Arizona, California, Colorado, Tennessee )
6. Nambia
7. Morocco
8. Mexico
9. Germany
10. France

I don't collect countries, but the minerals I am attracted to seem to come from these places. My collection's origins seem to be heavily represented by these countries and states.

Polls assume a sort of value judgement that, as Tobias's post points out, isn't appropriate or valuable in many cases due to the many ways in which people collect. So it's probably worth just keeping this as an interesting discussion.

OK it seems that, considering the different opinions, it could be better let the thread open and let its own development. So, Tobias, Montanpark, if you consider necessary my intervention in this thread just let me know. Otherwise I will be aside, letting the thread continue as the FMF's members decide.

Considering the circumstances I edited my own post -> https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=12822#12822 and I added Spain, Namibia and South Africa.

Back from my summar vacation so let me add some thoughts. I used to collect anything I liked regardless of the country they were from but have now decided to collect only minerals from

Spain
England
Portugal
Scotland
Wales

No real order there but items from the first two are easier to obtain than material from the last two countries. Everything from any other country is now slowly being exchanged or removed from my collection
