They're finally catching up to the US servers I guess.

What's the point of having different sites for the various English speaking countries-- especially if they can't keep them all equally maintained.

Am i being a provincial American, or is this really a senseless duplication?  I realize spelling is a bit different, but it never bothers me to read things with british spelling.

Seconded. :)

I don't understand the need for two sites in English either. In an ideal world there'd be one site, with an option to choose your preferred language.

Because here in America, we speak American! I have actually heard that before. Some people may not make the connection that it is all English... younger ones, I guess...
English classes + English language = ? What? It is not called England anymore? UK, then. 

[That is sarcasm and humor FYI]

I'm currently enjoying the new site, I can now finally make sporecasts, I could never find half the creations I wanted to add before, or find the add button on the us site.

On the US site you just drag and drop the thumbnail onto the sporecast button. I always felt that was a bit obscure though.
