Changes Made to the Stats

as a result of the investigations above

Country Code Suffixes

Many web sites that provide lists of the two letter suffixes used by different countries.  These can be found by searching for the phrase "country code extensions" in Google.

However I  found this  page from Wikipedia Answers to be particularly useful in helping me to check which countries the visitors to EdinPhoto have (and have not) come from.

 The Wikipedia site provides:

-  background based on the ISO 3166 standard.

-  country code extensions currently in use

-  country code extensions reserved for possible future use

-  country code extensions no longer in use

-  links to background information on the countries above.

After reading the Wikipedia site, I have made the following changes to the stats on my site:

Removed from Stats

Suffixes are for possible future use

These are country codes reserved for possible future use, or to prevent others using them.  They are not currently in use.

I have now removed these countries from my stats, so they will no longer appear on the list of "No visitors yet from ..."

.ac

Ascension Island

.gg

Guernsey

.ic

Canary Islands

.im

Isle of Man

.je

Jersey

.uk

United Kingdom

NOTE:  GB is the code used for the United Kingdom (including the Isle of Man and Channel Islands).

NOTE:  I have added back 'Isle of Man' after receiving reports of visitors from there in January 2007.

 

Removed from  Stats

Suffixes for this country is no longer in use

For several countries, there are country codes that have been used in the past but are are no longer active. This is the only one that I still had in my stats.  I have now removed it.   i.e. It will no longer appear on the list of "No visitors yet from ..."

.ai

Anguilla

 

UPDATE:  I have added back 'Anguilla' after receiving reports of visitors from there in January 2007.

Removed from  Stats

These may never have had suffixes

These countries DO NOT appear to have 'Country Code Suffixes' so I have removed them from my stats.

They will no longer appear on the list of "No visitors yet from ..."

Australian External Territories

Smaller Territories

Terres Austreales

West Timor

 

Added to Stats

These countries have 'Country Code Suffixes' that I was not previously aware of.  I have added them to my stats.  So until somebody visits from these countries, they will appear in the list of "No visitors yet from ..."

.ax

Åland Islands

io

British Indian Ocean Territory

 

Changes of Name

I have updated the country names to bring them into line with the following:

.bu

Burma (now Myanmar, MM)

.nt

Neutral Zone, partitioned between Saudi Arabia and Iraq in 1983.

.sf

Finland (now FI)

.su

Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (several successor codes)

.tp

East Timor (now Timor-Leste, TL)

.yu

Yugoslavia (now Serbia and Montenegro, CS)

.zr

Zaire (now Democratic Republic of the Congo, CD)
