User location information
« on: December 07, 2011, 10:13:55 PM »
Greetings

On the old fourm it used to display the location of the user under their name on each post they made.  This version of the forum must not have that configured.  It is useful to know where is a user is located so that relevant information could be supplied based on questions someone may ask.

So could we have this feature activated for this forum?

Cheers

Brian

I'd like to see this too. Of course it is the user's option if they want to put it in. It's also helpful to see who is close to you.

Seems like a good idea, Brian. Thank you.

Does anyone wish to comment on the down-side of having a poster's location shown, at their discretion?

Is there a downside? If a person doesn't want to display their location, they just don't enter it.
