In my area, handles are far more common.
IC, probably more handles than doorknobs
I prefer door handles more often, but sometimes doorknobs are better
Combination. Knobs in the house and handles on the entry way, especially in newer homes. My 32 year old home has all knobs
Door handles obviously.
Who even uses those round things? You can't hold a stuff in your hand while trying to open a knob.
I will keep that dead boat afloat. I swear it. For the sake of so many past members that passed on.
Handles are more common I think
I don't have one
Handles. Knobs are only to be used for lascivious acts. I agree with AM, handles are vastly superior when you're carrying things. I've used legs, feet, elbows, hips, pretty much anything (even the stuff I'm holding) if I'm coming into the house/room with a large amount of stuff in my hands. Can't do that with doorknobs
And here is yet another weekly doorknob report!

I don't think I have ever encountered doorknobs (except at front doors but those are usually decorative and can't be used to open the door; you do that with your key and then you push). Here handles are used, although I have seen differences in the position of the handle. Apparently some people prefer them vertically instead of horizontally.
IRL, I have to deal in doorknobs.
IC, I haven't come up with a solution, but I'd figure handles are more common excluding very recent high-end homes that take knobs for "aesthetic".
Where I grew up in south Florida it was usually handles, where I am now it’s mostly a pretty even combination. Outside the US I’ve seen mostly knobs or latches
We have knobs up here, though I imagine the Handle is more popular in havalland, easy to grab and they look nice, plus some have fancy designs.
I personally like the door handle more.
Funny my grandmother’s house has a front door with a handle while the rest are knobs, my aunts both live in houses with all handles.
anecdotally I think you really only see knobs on interior residential doors, if at all. Some will shop up randomly in older buildings as well maybe. My dad collected a certain type of doorknob and installed them in the house I grew up at though so that might somewhat skew my findings.

The Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron (RSLYS) is a yacht club located in Fort Charlotte, Serpens Land. It is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Serpens Land, being founded in 1912.
The Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron is known for hosting several sailing regattas throughout the year. These events most notably include the Broughton Bay Cup Regatta held in late April and the Fort Charlotte Week Regatta held in August.
The Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron was established in 1912 in Fort Charlotte with the name "Fort Charlotte Yacht Club". It can trace it's origins back to a group of amateur sailors who organised a regatta to celebrate Dominion Day.
Early regattas held at the club included sailing yacht races and rowing races. During this time, it was popular for sailors to build their own sailboats to compete against other club members.
In 1932, the Fort Charlotte Yacht Club was formally granted royal patronage and changed their name to the "Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron". In the same year, the club held the first Fort Charlotte Week Regatta. The regatta drew competitors from across the Western Isles.
Until 1936, the club's primary clubhouse was located along the Fort Charlotte waterfront. In 1936, the Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron purchased property in downtown Fort Charlotte from the newly defunct British Western Isles Company.
The Fort Charlotte Week Regatta is a yachting competition held in Lonsdale Inlet. It runs over the course of a week with racing held every day. It is open to boats of all sizes, with boats being separated into different fleets based on size and performance. The regatta attracts competitors from countries across the Western Isles; most international competitors enter the prestigious high-performance fleet in fast, modern racing yachts.

The first in a series of sports-themed dispatches I'm hoping to get done. Would anyone be interested in a sailing regatta if I were to run one in the forums? Looking to gauge interest.
