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. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ 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... $\endgroup$ Jul 29, 2013 at 16:39

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

  • $\begingroup$ @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. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Though on the level of short links, only s.tk/math works. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It's a lot better than the proposed maths.exchange... $\endgroup$ Jul 28, 2013 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?

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