Only a suggestion but with all the administers being keen on members adding their location to their profile would it not be a good idea to add that to each members details under the 'members' section and then be able to sort and find members who lived in various locations, then perhaps one could find members who lived locally.

I realise this sometimes this information comes out in the content of many of the messages which are posted by members, but one could also then post messages to other members about events in their location.

I do realise that there are other considerations about publishing members location particularly about privacy, but if one only has a town or area as a location I don't think this encroaches a members privacy

i like the idea too in principal, but I reckon it may not be as simple as you might think. Watch this space...

Trying to think how this would work as you need a range that is searchable ...so just a town would not be good enough.

Open to further thoughts and ideas on this.

If everyone included a county (State) it would give us all a fair idea how close they were to each other
