    If I had one wish it would be that everybody would put their town and state in their avatar..

    so many replies mention ,, it is so cold HERE,, or I have some eggs/chickens for sale..Where? or similar statements to location and I have no idea of where "here" is.. then it takes a reply to ask where "here" is.. and on and on it goes..

    I agree it would be good and they've tried to get people to do it, but for whatever reason they won't.

    Nope.! Just the only one talking about it at the time.

    We are having a great day here, The weather man has promised a grand warmup- 60's and maybe 70's -before the next cold spell/snow/winter hits us on Friday. I want spring---NOW!!

    Quote:not everyone wants to share information deemed as personal. everyone has a different level of comfort with info on the internet.
    for all we know 'here' might be being made up.

    if a child posts here on BYC, as they are more than welcome to do, how much info should they give out about their location? none.
    what about a single mom? elderly person? on and on...it just comes down to comfort level.

    as for sale/wanted items, that is a different story, but people just forget sometimes. shoot them a PM and ask them to change the headline for their thread.

    guess we'll have to use our imaginations sometimes.

    I agree with Miss Jayne [​IMG]

    People SHOULD put where they are located if they are selling something-in the title. I don't want shipped eggs from North Pole, AK in December, and I should be able to make that decision without opening the thread!
