    I'm seeing a lot of new members making posts that leave me and other members wondering where they/(you?) live; that's information we very often need if we're to answer their/your questions.
    What might work in Florida might not work in Canada.
    ...
    If you haven't listed your CITY/TOWN, STATE under your NAME yet, please go to (click) Profile (on the dark-blue line above) and then to the list on the left hand side titled Profile Menu. Going there and choosing the second item on the list, PERSONAL, in the space for Location you can type in the name of the city or town, state where you live.
    ...
    Again, those steps are: PROFILE, PROFILE MENU, PERSONAL, LOCATION

    Even putting a general area is good I feel (the town my address is associated with has only 800 people in it, so kinda close, rather have a wee bit of anonymity.)

    Location is VERY important for climate/weather questions - "winter" is a much different thing when you're asking about a Tennessee winter or a Michigan winter!

    I assume that if I refers to my state like it's a country people will still understand what I'm talking about. [​IMG]

    I can't tell if you're serious or not. [​IMG] If so, there's the word "Carolina" right after "North." [​IMG]

    I agree, I've found it hard that when trying to answer a question, I first have to guess the possible location of the poster/s.

    @Iowa Roo Mom, you do have a great username invention there. [​IMG]

    I agree. Sometimes I'm just wondering where every one is from as well. Maybe someone close to me will become a personal resourse some day. HOWEVER I'm begining to realize that this is a family forum and alot of the posters are younger. So please be general. In fact I think I'm going to change my profile to not name my city, just the state.

    Quote:True, someone on another thread was asking about what she needed for chickens. Well, with winter coming it makes a difference. So is she in the south or north or west?

    For me, I take a lot of pride in my state and I'll never leave it. I love our lakes and forests and beaches and Vernors. [​IMG]
