I have a cousin in the UK and was wondering if he is able to access this site. I tried to search stackexchange UK, but didn't find a UK site. Is SE, specifically Math.SE, for US users only or is it one site for all countries?

    $\begingroup$ We in the UK can access this site just as we can access more or less any other site hosted in the US. Why are you looking for a UK site? Amazon UK, for example, exists not because we can't access Amazon US, but because there'll be different products in UK warehouses (and the shipping fee will be lower), because the DVDs they sell have a different regional encoding, and so on. $\endgroup$ – Billy Jul 28 '13 at 0:53
  • $\begingroup$ I can't help but ask, but did your cousin even try going to the site? I mean, all he would have to do is simply go to math.stackexchange.com to see that he is indeed able to access the site from the UK... $\endgroup$ – Ataraxia Jul 29 '13 at 16:39

Here's a proof that UK users are welcome: http://maths.stackexchange.com directs here.

    $\begingroup$ Ooh, I didn't know about that. That's very amusing. $\endgroup$ – davidlowryduda Jul 27 '13 at 23:49
  • $\begingroup$ Shame on you for using proof in such a non-mathematical context on a mathematics related website. ;-) $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jul 27 '13 at 23:49
  • $\begingroup$ @mixedmath: If you dig through the early days of meta.MSE you'll find a request for this redirect for the British speaking parts of the world, G'vnor. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jul 27 '13 at 23:50

    $\begingroup$ Though on the level of short links, only s.tk/math works. $\endgroup$ – 40 votes Jul 27 '13 at 23:54

    $\begingroup$ This is so hilarious, I laughed so hard towards the monitor for minutes. $\endgroup$ – Shuhao Cao Jul 28 '13 at 2:39

    $\begingroup$ It's a lot better than the proposed maths.exchange... $\endgroup$ – The Chaz 2.0 Jul 28 '13 at 3:36

Well, there is a short entrance quiz for UK users:

(1) What is the name of the new royal baby?

(2) What country is Andy Murray from? I mean, really?

(3) What happened recently in a McDonald's near Manchester?

(4) How does that relate to Albuquerque, New Mexico?

  • $\begingroup$ If it's a quiz for Britons, I'd expect something more in the spirit of Monty Python and the Holy Grail... $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jul 28 '13 at 1:32

  • $\begingroup$ Yes (3) is about a horse $\endgroup$ – Will Jagy Jul 28 '13 at 19:09

The site is for everyone, everywhere, granted they are being friendly, and keep their posts within the topic of the site (mathematics).
