I think that if everyone will provide their location in their profile we might be able to offer better assistance. There is alot of knowledge out there and some people ar close to others and never know it. This would also make it nice to be able to visit one another's displays.

I just did a search on members sorted by location. There are 54.5 pages of people listed with no location out of 77 pages of members. This seems far less than 50% of people.

So folks! What do you think?

I'd love that to be a requirement for signing up to post...

Often the correct answer can depend on where you live...

I'm with Jeff and Tim! Location is very important on giving advice and you are more likely to get advice if you have it.

I totally agree. I've already found a couple of LOR guys just by driving around some neighborhoods in the area.

I agree with this also. It would also be a great resource if you tried to plan a mini in your area.

I agree that city,state is a good thing.

I have to thank Scot Meyers for getting a lot folks in Colorado in touch with each other!! He's been persistent in trying to get people organized and its starting to work.

I think the original poster was talking about how nice it would be if those without a valid city,state (in their profile) added that information ...

i.e.

Click on "My Account" then click on "Profile" ... then enter the city and state in those fields ... then click "Save" at the bottom of the profile page.

Might as well give it up. The second time I received timeout in PC was because I pushed that issue as well as all the stupid screen names.

I use to laugh when someone would not do it because of privacy. They would have some stupid name like "number1santafanintheworld and then no location. Then on their sig they would have their website. Oh and what was on their website? Their entire name, address and a map to get to their house. BRILLANT!

I hat screen names in this stuff. You go to a little get together and now the person says, "Hi, I am John, you know number1santafanintheworld". Now how the heck are you going to remember what. Oh there is John, number1santafanintheworld. Man give me a break.

I thought that info was on there. Obviously not, so I've added it. Like you've said if i add my home town site as a homepage it's got my full address on it anyway. Don't see the point in hiding, if the nut jobs wanna come and kill you, they'll find you anyway.
but it's interesting to read where people are from in this thread.

Robin, not trying to start anything but you must be having a bad week. Every post of lately has been angry. Put a smile on your face and wish everyone a Merry Christmas:D I have wanted to smack people down in here but have bitten my lip. I hope you don't think my screen name is crazy. Maybe Kinky but not out there. LOL. The reason I use that name is because its my cats name and part of mine. Brian. I have used that on AOL, MTCO, Comcast, insight, roadrunner, hotmail and ect for e-mails. Every time I have joined websites no one has never used it. I agree people should put pictures and locations where they live. I just need to find a camera that wont break ever time I have a picture taken of me.

Oh i dunno, I've had one nut job turn up to 'kill' me, I didn't know if he had a gun so I called the cops. Police cars were everywhere but he still got away.
In the uk if you have a name and town you can get a list of addresses of almost everyone with that name in that town.

I have used my real name since I started this hobby in August, 2005 and it hasn't caused me any pain nor fame during that time.

Hey - I'm here with the name my grandkids gave me. In fact my 2 year old Grand Daugher calls both of her grandpa's Papa - but she calls me Papa HO HO! And she LOVES Frosty the Snowman!

Robin is speaking from his heart - and trust me this idea of names and locations has caused him and others great pain. Robin and I are good friends, and the only thing that I read in his post was frustration. That topic caused a great rift some time back at another place.

Personally I love to share - my ideas - designs - and abilities. In the 4 years I have been part of this I have seen good people (such as Robin) get burnt by folk who we share an idea or solution with, and that person takes that Idea and puts their name to it and touts it as their personal idea and accomplishment. So we are cautious to whom we give our name and address and ideas to.

But trust me - If you want to know anything about wire frames - ROBIN is Da Man!
