Hey Rusty,
Since the site is now international, how much trouble would it be to display the location with the member name on each post.  I think it would be nice to see.

I've just poked around for a half hour and can find no simple way to make this happen.  I'll keep looking.  In the meantime, enjoy the new "applaud/smite" option  ;D

If the smiting gets out of hand I'll have to shut it off!

Can you guys enter a custom field to your Avatar?  For instance, I typed "aimless ne're do well," you could add your location if you wish...I think.  Let me know if that works.

The original poster has his location shown under his avatar.   It looks to me it's just a profile setting.

If you go to: ProfileSummary/Forum Profile/Personal Text

I recall on another forum (maybe one of the car forums or something) they had a map thingy that you could pin your location......   that way you can see who was around your area and then could hit them up for events/rides etc......

I think IBAR on Facebook has a google map that you tag yourself in. It would be cool to set one up for here.

Bump, so all the new members can see how to change their profile to add a location.

It's nice to see where you are from.
