    When the state is in the subject line it makes it easier to locate birds in a particular area. Everyone is not interested in shipping and local birds are a good draw.

    Also, please indicate the actual "subject" in the subject line. "Beautiful silkie hens for sale CA", instead of "Awsome, take a look", is more helpful to everyone reading the posts.

    Thanks all...

    It is referring to people who are posting in the Buy, sell, trade, and giveaway section. It requests that when a post is made, the subject of the post, or the title, says what they are selling and their location. A greater description will make it easier for both the buyer and seller.

    Bumping up, I see alot of the posts do not contain the state location in the subject line.
    Maybe a note to the posters when they post and do not include state will be a reminder for next time?
    Sure would make it soooo much easier for folks looking as mentioned here.

    I believe that if someone forgets to post the state or breed in the subject line, they can go back to their original post to update the subject header, too. [​IMG]

    That is correct.

    Hit the Edit button in the right lower corner of the post to change anything.

    It would be so nice, if everyone would fill out their profiles, there has been many times when they dont put their state in their post, I go to their proflie to see where they are from and they have NOTHING in it. Just my thoughts, Thanks.........ed.........Portland, IN...............
