    @Hronos welcome! I've not yet seen another Peruvian user so far. Let me look into more the number of Peruvian users. I'll hopefully get back to you today! 
    Aww thanks for the kind words @Pooh! Yes, I'm trying my best to keep things running smoothly whilst @Gidster is enjoying the Greek islands.

    OK @Hronos and @Pooh I've done some digging. We have a couple tens of thousands of Fing users with account. (Actually more than I'd imagined). We have a couple handfuls of Fingbox activated in Peru - more than I was expecting to see as well in comparison to some other nearby countries. So perhaps when we launch the community in full by September (in app and by email) we'll find some more Peruvian users making their way here too.

    @VioletChepil Wow! it's kind of a surprise to read about that!, so there are more Fingboxes around the neighbor  :).  Hope to see them here when the community launch.
    Thanks for the warm welcome, I hope to be of help for the community.
    Keep looking up!

    @VioletChepil is there any way to edit this to make it a poll?  I didn't realise it was possible to create a poll until now and its not in the edit options?

    I don't believe it can be changed. In addition the issue with polls is that (IIRC) you've only got 10 choices, so you'd probably need to limit it to (broadly speaking) Continents (albeit with a few exceptions there and here) and, as a former Brit I can testify that there's a world of difference between us Brits and the fine folks from France, the Grand Germans or even the honorable Hungarians - yet all would be 'European'. Same goes for Us crazy Americans - a world apart from our Northern Cousins from Canada.
    People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.

    Hey @John unfortunately you can't change the question type. What you pick at beginning is only format. We could pick the 9 most popular countries and then also include an other option and ask people to specify in the comments below @Pooh? Thoughts? If you want to make a poll (and I love polls by the way) because we get the data so nicely - I can close this thread and we can edit the description and ask people to answer the poll. In addition, we are still in beta, but next week I'll start inviting Fing app users to the community. We should be getting much higher influx of members from Wednesday next week. Let me know what you think!

    Devil's advocate here: 9 most popular countries in the closed beta test group would not necessarily equate to same when opened up to world\dog. Just pondering the input from the folks who come after if there's a far bigger disparity.

    but tough with 10 options I have tried to cover bases based on the feedback on this thread!

    @VioletChepil ;how about an option that displays a "drop down list" (is it possible? maybe on future upgrades to the site?)
    The lists could be "pre-fill" with a number of standard data groups like Countries, Brands, types, etc.
    Keep looking up!

    Way back in the day when I did some work for Shopright Checkers in Brackenfell, I stayed in Stellenbosch and, I have to admit, spent many a happy time in some of the vineyards there. Never made it out to either Paarl or Franschoek though...
