Why does everyone on Y!A just assume I'm American?

I've been using Y!A since 2011 and I've noticed that nearly every question I ask, there's always an answer where someone just assumes that I am American. So if I am posting on the UK site for Y!A does my questions just appear on the US one? Or is it the way I type?

    All English Speaking Country's get the Same Q and A List not Just USA or UK

    So If you Ask something it will Appear on Both the USA Site and the UK Site

  • Because people here are younger than 13 and do even know anything about this world except for America, In fact, there are some who stay here almost 24 a hours a day and thinK only Americans speak English here.

    YA combined ALL the english speaking sites into one, and since YA started in the US, many of the users are American. Rather than get annoyed, simply state "UK" (or Australia) etc, sometimes we can tell from the spelling and the wording, other times its impossible. Give us a hand here.

    People assume that for me too, they tell me things like "Oh you must be American", but I am actually Australian.
