Great, really appreciated. Is there a link planned on the main page, or have I overlooked it?

The list of countries that have no "prog representative" on PA is quite long...I've made one, but deleted it by accident.Angry However, I'm quite surprised that countries like Moldova, Liechtenstein, San Marino and Montenegro have no bands here, some Latin-American countries, such are Honduras and Paraguay, then Korea, Singapore, China, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Iran, then Egypt and Nigeria. Perhaps my expectations are set a bit too high, but I don't think so.

Thanks Dean for the Shri Lanka prog band link!

I'll try to delve deeper into "unknown" prog territories and find some artists and propose them for inclusion. That should be fun.

Bob, could you make this topic sticky? You already said you did, but I don't see the "needle icon"

A great list, thank you!
 
Are there any technical (or other) reasons why these countrylinks could not be added also to the country texts in the archive lists? I think it would be really handy enhancement, as I find it ineteresting to try look at the scenes of some countries. Big smile

I've made a chart of artists distribution by country here, to see which countries have the most (or the least) artists listed on Prog Archives. It's here.

Cry Why isn't there links to countries (and to genres) on the Artist Pages anymore?! Actually I can't find any links to country listings, except here from the forum. Not even the Google search gives anything.

There should be link "BY COUNTRIES" in the top menu, in "ARTISTS" or "MISC". And on the artist pages.

Or is some kind of update process killing links for a moment?

You never know...I'm doing a little research of my own, searching for the prog artist from countries that are least likely to have any rock artists, let alone prog rock artists...and there are some encouraging results.

Thank you for this. Top albums finder is neat, but a lot of albums from my country have no ratings. So they're not here.

Tell us about some interesting results, something like Vatican prog (probably death metal band :) )

By the way hello, I'm here (did message disappeared?)

BTW2 - I suggest sticky

I have been thinking the same recently since the new design of the artists page - the link to country has disappeared to my great unhappiness... Confused

I was also always expecting to see a handy tool (links) to display bands/artists by country... to no avail so far... :(

 Thumbs UpClarke, you did a wonderful job with this country listing. It is something I have been waiting to see since I joined the PA.... I will bookmark it in my browser, but would be also useful to have it somewhere integrated on the home page categorisation links...

Kudos, man! Clap
