You wish that the "Country" selection box on the sign up pages for websites would just put the USA on top instead of Afghanistan, amirite?

That's not alphabetic... that's not alphabetic at all!

It should be ordered by total internet users in each country. China, USA, India, Japan, and Brazil would be the first 5. If a website knows this isn't an accurate representation of the site's users, they can base it off of their own percentages.

The point is to make it convenient for the most people. There are a lot of Americans using the internet, and on English only websites especially it doesn't make sense to have the US at the bottom of a huge scroll list.

Edit: also, you can just start typing in what you want to find and it'll take you to that spot in the scroll list so it doesn't matter either way.

OR, the website could find the user's location automatically and sort by that - but I forgot about the whole type it in thing. Good point. Shuffles off shamefully

You can't always type it in, though. But I still think the top five thing would be a lot more convienient in either situation.

I get what the OP is saying - there could be say the top 10 countries by internet user at the top of the list to perhaps speed things along. I sympathise with the US, I'm from the UK so we're really far down the list too!

I think they should put the countries that they have the most members from (USA, UK, Australia, etc.) first. THEN begin listing all the others
