I was willing to sign up for the Reader Panel but why when the choose your language option is available can I only choose English from Canada, Ireland, Scotland and USA but not England! When England is chosen it appears as Great Britain but the others appear as chosen. England is one of the 'home nations' and should be treated as equal. Not meant as a political rant but surely you can see my point.

English is English, and doesn't need to be specified, all the others are variations of proper English.

signed up about a week or so ago when i saw in on the PCA main page, any idea when it will get started?

Hi, everyone.

There is an English (England) option, although heaven knows why there are options for England, Scotland, Wales, etc.

I'll ask the partners we're working with to get the panel up and running why these options exist.

It would be a real help if as many people as possible signed up for the panel. You won't be contacted a great deal but it will help us keep the site the way the users want it and also help us on a few campaign issues.

Plus there's the chance to win £100, which can't be bad. As not many have signed up so far there's a very good chance that you could win!

Does this mean you can read it online? or do you have to buy the mag every month

  simonjary 09:54 16 Jun 2011

It's for readers of the print, online and/ore mobile editions of PC Advisor - so everyone welcome!

My point is when I click on English (England) option it ends up as English (Great Britain) and not English (England). It smacks of an American viewpoint. It is all academic anyway,as has been stated why have so many variations of English on an online panel? The panel is a good idea though.

England is part of Great Britain what's the problem?

*My point is when I click on English (England) option it ends up as English* (Great Britain)

Any type of English is alright with me. I can understand it.
