Mapping PtR 2010 - It's a "Silver and Black" world after all.


"It's like a geographical roll call."  - Wayne Vore (ATS), 2009

Last year, Wayne created a FanPost entitled Mapping PTR 2009 - Where are you? aiming to extract information for CIA Pop locate PTR users and know the primary reasons why they choose to support the San Antonio Spurs. I read the entry along with the comments after seeing it in the Featured Pages section of the site and thought that it was a very nice idea from the former big bossman. I completely enjoyed the responses from the PTR members and would love to interact with them more through discussions and playful banters in the Game Threads and other FanPosts.

Another thing I noticed is that only 51 individuals took part in the roll call. I don't know how long Wayne allowed the members to reply,but, correct me if I am wrong, I think a lot of PTR members were not able to respond. It'll be interesting to see how the PTR community has grown within a year span. I have noticed a lot of users (myself included) have decided to come out of their shells, shun their lurking personas and join this wonderful community.

I have been enjoying my stay here at PTR so I decided to initiate the Mapping PTR 2010 post. It'll be nice to know if the site has managed to expand in terms of nationalities and location of the members. I summarized the information from last year's post through a list and created a map using this.

I also went to sitemeter and check the world map for PTR's recent visitors. Here's the image for the 500 most recent vistors:

Oh, and the information about me:

I am a Spurs fan from the Philippines. I started rooting for the Spurs during the '90s after being amazed by The Admiral's work. But I was very young then, and like most Filipinos, my main team was the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls. We don't have access to NBA games during those times except for the regular half-page section in newspapers and the occasional reports in local news channels. I wasn't able to follow the Spurs that much until the 2000s and I was instantly fascinated by the consistency that Tim Duncan shows in every game. I became an instant fan of his and started rooting solely for the Spurs. It was also the time that I gained more knowledge about the game, both the fun and the technical aspects. Then, the team drafted Manu. *insert all kinds of praises here*. I feel honored to be rooting for the best organization in the whole universe, and I will be cheering for the men in silver and black "until the wheels fall off". I have always hoped to meet The Big Three and The Admiral in person, watch a Spurs game in San Antonio and have a conversation with Pop. Someday. Hopefully.

 

Your turn.
