    A whois domain name lookup reveals that (English Language (ESL) Learning Online - UsingEnglish.com) is registered to an address in London N4, not too far from where I am currently.

    So, British English is my guess - with contributions from all around the world.

    It's not based on a single variant- you'll find different Englishes in use, though British English is the most widely used in areas outside the forum simply because it was set up by British speakers.
