I agree - it's a PITA the number of times someone asks for help or advice, and the accuracy of what you tell them is highly dependent on roughly where in the blummin' world they are... and they have not had the common decency to put anything in for their location. I mean - we don't need the house number and the street - just a flippin' rough idea... Southern England? Northern Ireland? Western Samoa??? Give us a clue mate!I think what Noel means is the fact that a while ago you had to put a general location down when creating a profile. Now you don't. I have seen an increasing trend of new members who show no general location. I agree, it is nice when reading someone's posts, to be able to tell where in the UK or world they are from. It can sometimes explain a lot. I also agree that it may lend itself to meeting forum members or the acts of kindness Noel refers to.
