Profile should require "location"

A suggestion to the organizers/moderators of these forums: it'd be nice if the users location--city/state/country was a requirement rather than optional.

I understand some users desire for anonymity, but people post questions about where to go for parts, service, buying cars or advice. A member provides a response-- only to find that the poster is half a world away!

Not a big deal, but seems like it would improve the responsiveness of these sites which are otherwise excellent !

Yeah, I agree too – it makes it tough to help some people when recommending motor oil, for example. I use 20w 50 in my 500 SEL which may not be a good idea in Canada!

In this age of “cyber paranoia,� however, it’s tough to make members disclose their locations.

RE: Profile should require "location"

We have an old Corvette too - -and I've been reading the "Corvette Action Center"board - -they appear to either require it or have a very high level of voluntary compliance.

You're right though with your oil example... it's no big deal I suppose, but probably more of a courtesy by the participants.

I enjoy the information I've learned though and enjoy the Board - -thanks to all.
