What happened to poster's Location at bottom of post?

Recommended Posts

I found this very helpful while reading through the posts. I realize you can "look up" the person's location but that slows down reading through the forum. Knowing where a person is from helps understand posts such as on discussion of everyhting from antennna coverage (desert states vs high forest areas) to things as to how much memory you need (metro areas locations vs surburban areas). It autpomatically clarifies people's responses. In addition, the location puts a "human face" on the poster. I'm sure iA'm not the only one who likes to know where people are from. Especially when you're posting in the sections for Region/State. When people report weather and other locally changing info, Location is very helpful.

 

Please bring it back.

I second that motion!

 

On the road of life there are people in cars and people getting hit by cars.

Whoa...good catch. I like to know where people are from so I can use the proper regional insults on them...

I agree. I can only think of one reason not to have that information at the bottom of the screen, privacy, but if people are worried about it, they can just do like they always did, and say they are from "Over There, USA"

When I first started here the location wouldn't show unless one specified it. There doesn't seem to be an area for this now. I'd have thought one of the admins would have said something about it by now. It was a good idea, and if someone didn't want that info there, it could be kept out. I now put it in the signature area. frog.gif

Wasn't it still that way until the most recent forum changeover? icon_confused.gif

Yeah, it was a good feature. Now you have to look at the person's profile and check their logs to get an idea as to where they are from.

Any word if/when the bit in the profile that shows caches found/hidden/etc will be fixed?
