I've remade the thread so that it's not public. :mrgreen:

I realise that you cannot reverse a public poll, but everything else can be, so if any other rules are broken, please tell me before locking so that I don't have to remake this a third time.

This poll was made simply out of general interest as to the demographics of Tip.It users and so on. Please be honest in your voting. It seems that questions get repeated a lot on here, so I've put in a FAQs section for all you confused people.

FAQs:

Q: I am Hispanic/Latino, what race am I?
A: Caucasian

Q: Why haven't you put agnostic down as a religion?
A: The religion question is already full, and because agnosticism is not a set of beliefs per se, I figured people who are agnostic could either choose "Other" or leave the question

Q: I am a Mestizo, what race am I?
A: Mixed, not Other

Q: I am an Atheist, does that also make me a Buddhist?
A: No, it makes you an Atheist

Yep. The only reason I locked is because editing is impossible (can't make private after it's been public.) For anything else I would have pmed.

Me too. I generally assume white (because of the US/Eurocentricity of the game's audience), heterosexual (because 90% of people in the world are) and atheist (because RS is generally played by 'that' generation). Looks like I was pretty close.

I'm an atheist, heterosexual Caucasian.

I'm guessing I'll fit in quite well here.

If it's alright with you, you could always PM me your religion and I can tell you if it fits into any of the categories. I would edit the poll, but all 20 slots are full for religion.

Just where do Latinos/Hispanics fall into?


Caucasian.

Id disagree with that, a lot of them have a lot of Native American in them. A hispanic person in the Americas looks a lot different then a Spaniard or a Filipino.

Also would Filipinios be considered Asian/Pacific Islander or Hispanic to you?

Since there is no such thing as "race" I put "other" as I always do when I am asked that question. As far as religious beliefs, I am part of the majority.

Nice to see you tearing it up in Off-Topic Croce :razz:

So by the same logic would Latinos in America be considered Native American, Caucasian or mixed?

Memory serves me right, hispanics were treated as caucasian in the last US Census. To bad we're only limited to three questions as it would also be nice to pin point the general age of the off-topic userbase.

You forgot Agnostic... I don't consider myself atheist. Caucasian, if you'd have put white I would have said other... Prolly Jedi, as something like 0.2% of the US population did put that in 2000's census.
Hrm.. If anybody does tally up age/country etc: I'm 17, from the US... And I'm female, which would be fun to count up how badly we're outnumbered here.

Being hispanic/Latino is considered a ethnicity not a race. The question of whether or not the person is of hispanic/latino decent is also noted in the US Census but is a separate question altogether.
