Hi Jorg,

I sailed in Stuttgart a few years back, the Naviga World Championships were held there and we had a great couple of weeks, great tour round the amazing Mercedes Museum, lots of excellent beer, and still managed to get a Bronze medal for team GB  8)

Another forum I moderate for has your location in the left hand pane of a post along with your avatar.

Maybe that could be added here?

I'm down in Poole, Dorset, UK.  Used to have a wonderful boating lake...until the Council drained it and it won't be filled again until late Summer apparently!  I guess I'll have to try and find Setley Pond, I think that's my closest water (apart from the sea!)

Why are so many members reluctant to put the location where they live on their profiles?

Its that way on all of the forums, Just the country or state or area would be nice. As it make me smile when somebody  on another forum requests a source of supply for something and doesn't give a clue as to where they are or if they are even on this planet!  Then they don't put the location in when asked but do go into a rant when after a number of days nobody answers or no answers other than smart a$$ ones.

That is my second most favorite complaint about forums. The first is the people that don't read the thread and will list the same site or answer multiple times. Followed by my third which is the people that ask questions, but don't respond when somebody answers them. At least with " I read it!"

Which doesn't seem to happen on this forum as much.

I have been told they don't want somebody tracking them down and stealing everything they own  :police:

On another forum I belong to there is location information below the avatar saying, 'I am located in .....' . The location is the city/state entered into the registration page.

Could we do something similar?

It does give a better sense of who you are chatting to. And it is possible to fing others near you and exchange PMs.

I only ask as I have my location and a few members in my location have brought their models round for some advice and assistance.
If you don't live far my usual answer is "bring it round" but I cant if no location added.
No not to rob you all blind, I have enough here now!!!

Agree with you on this one Bob, if I'd still been living in Southsea (I'm ex-RN) you'd have a regular visitor coz my building skills are rather rough around the edges.
I'm relatively new to this hobby, only been at it about 12 years !

I think it would be good to see a “location” as many people want to sell/swap there boats they no longer want or to have a bit of cash for something else. You need to know a location if you are interested, as it could be local or in another country. Big boats can cost a lot for P&P and can be damaged on route, so pick up may only be possible, what is the point in replying to an ad, if you know that its to far to travel.
You don't have to put your number or street name, just a local town to you would do, and if you are in the UK, Europe, US.  Could that do any real harm??  Sorry that's my ten pence worth. Sonic.

I have put my location down as SW Surrey, UK which is sufficient to give people an idea where to aim... ;)

In my profile I give my Department name and number which also is the first two digits of a post code in France. A French Department is a bit like a UK county.

If anyone wants to add a location to their Profile it is very easy to make an amendment.
