Forum Members Location

Postby LambrettaMan » Thu Mar 01, 2012 9:58 am

Gents, this is just really a personal observation.

When looking to see what area, county or even country other forum members are from, for a large percentage of us this detail is not available. As these type of forums are a form of networking for help and advice on our common interest I would assume it would be advantageous for us all to know eachothers location and if someone needs practical help be able to offer it if you can or want particularly if they're in your area. It's not compulsory obviously but I've often read a thread where another member is in a pickle due to being a novice or unfamiliar with scooters and thinking 'where is he? I wonder if I can help out' but there's no location on his profile.

It's not as if we're giving away personal addresses and phone numbers.

As I said it's only a personal observation that I've queried for some time here.

This sounds like a good idea Dave, could also help as a buddy to go out riding together in the lovely weather that we are having at the moment.

I think someone else mentioned this in the past,
I reckon that it's because some people like to keep their location private. ;)
Also some don't actually like scooterists. :lol:

Guys it is perfectly possible to add your location:
Go to "main page" - "User control panel" - "Profile" - "Edit profile" then add your details.

John,

I have to say then that this is in no way levelled at you. It is quite apparent that you're intending to let us know where you're from.

If I'm ever heading up to PERTH I'll give you a shout. :D

Welcome to the forum cazshie,
This means, I presume, that you are also in Perth.
Is that Perth in Scotland or Western Australia?

Feel free to add your locations.

I don't think you need a password, but if it asks for one, it's LMLOCGB (all caps).
