PLEASE ADD YOUR LOCATION!

Post by mk1 »

I haven't had a stomp around for a while telling people to add a location to their profile, so as so many regular users seem to have not bothered I'll have another go.

Please can everyone add a location to their profile.

This doesn't need to be an address or anything too precise, a rough location or even "Near somewhere" would be fine. This is particularly useful when people are offering items for sale & it is expected that anyone doing so adds their location before posting any advertisements.

Thanks,

Mark F

Here's an idea Mark. Could you alter the for sale and wanted criteria so that it is impossible to submit an wanted or for sale item UNLESS there is a location. Sooooo bloody frustrating when you don't know where the buyer or seller is located.......

i didn't realize that my profile was 'empty', so I've added a bit about my interests as an older retired person...including Hunting Mule Deer and being a Grampa.

And, I've added LOCATION - Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada

In July & August, we had Members of West Country Minis (IMM 2019 hosts) and a Member of the Mini Club of Sweden (my ALCAN 5000 Co-Driver) attend the monthly meeting of the Vancouver Mini Club.

I'm 50 yrs old... and stubborn. :shock:

But just a note for my fellow forumn readers-

Posting your location in this thread... will likely get it read- here only. Any other post you make on the board, which can be seen world-wide will not have that information then.

You could post where you're from- each and every time you post in every thread you do post in.... which will get tediously frustrating after some time.

Or-
You could click on the little arrow next to your name up at the top of the board... and click on your "user control panel".

From there- you can click on "edit signature".
And you can add your location, the year/model of your car, nickname... etc.

That signature automatically gets added to every post you make, in every thread... without any additional work, time, or effort- other than what you wish to comment at that time.

If you look below to my signature for example?

I can't take credit for what others built- all I can do is try to put her back on the road. :shock:

Thanks Joel,

That's what I was thinking of, but I could have been clearer.

Much appreciated.
