    @Clive, @Chris F, would you give some consideration to making it mandatory that members provide some indication as to their location, at least their regeon of the country, if not their county or more local than that, at their discretion?

    I find it most annoying that members will comment or post a request for information or help that can't sensibly be answered without some idea of their location.

    It's no good saying "it's still raining here" if nobody knows where "here" is.

    I don't like to dictate to people and if an individual doesn't want to disclose their location then that's up to them - I think peer pressure and pointing out how pointless making a statement like "its raining here" is normally is enough to encourage a user to declare location ?

    I do agree though it can be very annoying so will give it thought and listen to what other contributors to this thread think

    Those that want to keep their location private could always just put a false one down.

    May make things even more confusing though

    Nowt to hide, you can all pop round for tea & biccies. :)
    I would concur with folk talking about "here" when nobody knows where "here" is. Even if its just county its a start.
