Mayhem members - location.
« on: September 16, 2006, 05:33:17 pm »

I wonder why so few members put their location in their profile ? Often when a posting refers to a sailing venue or a show "which was x number of miles away" I am curious as to where this poster lives and probably sails - but there often is no location in their profile.  Why are people so reluctant to enter such details ?

Ah yes - but my profile actually says " Lleyn Peninsular, Nth Wales" and thats a small but very beautiful area  :D -  its a 30 mile drive to where I sail at Llanberis - but its worth it to sail with a super bunch of people.

Hello all, Don only 30 miles! I live in Aberdeen and have just finished loading up the car to go for a sail tomorrow with the other club members in Edinburgh which is only 117miles away  ;D Mad, I know but good fun and a great bunch of folk to sail with  ;D ;D It also gets me away from the mundane and I enjoy the wee trip to real civilisation a good few times a year. Also have been known to travel to Ayr, Largs, MacDuff and elsewhere in Scotland for a day trip. Sadly not made it to any of the English shows yet but there is always hope.

cheers

Good question... have always wondered the same thing too! I've got North East England on my profile and its not as if I'm giving my address away is it?? At least it gives other members a rough regional location which is surely a minimum I would have have thought! It isn't just the UK either (as I guess a lot of us tend to think parochially(!) but some of the newer members may well be from anywhere around the world.... I just think it would be handy and interesting to know from where an opinion is being generated from!  ;)

85110, Chantonnay, Vendee my signature says the rest......

Incidentally, a neat feature of another Forum to which I subscribe is that each Post has the members location and automatically tells you how many kilometers away they are from the reader.

This was a question I posed on the MB forum, makes it so much easier if you have a doo-dah to give away,
 or to collect,
no point in even considering an offered bit or a boat if the other sailor lives in 'Hamburg [Hi Jan]  Tug

currently moving from East Merseyside to South West Lancashire;  Then  .... But that would be telling wouldn't it?

Having a location would help especially when someone is looking for help or searching for materials and info in their location.
I live in Flatwoods in northeast Kentucky near the Ohio River in the U.S.
It's hard to give a reference to a manufacturer when you don't know which country you're replying to.
