Member locations
« on: January 05, 2014, 04:26:28 pm »
I just updated my profile after thinking it would be good for members to know the rough location of each other. It doesn't show on the board though. Is this something that could easily be changed?

I can add this, it will mean people will have to add the information again, but if people are willing it's not a big job. :)

Exactly. It's the same with firearms forums. Just the town is plenty good enough, we don't need your postcode and the number for the combination lock on your workshop! :D

A security note I will mention which many may not know is that you can often get data for where a photo was taken by right clicking it. If you take a picture on a camera phone it usually tags it with a grid reference from the network unless you ask it not to. It can be accurate to inside 100 yards. That does bug me! >:(

I hadn't thought about that with camera phones. Rather worrying.  :(

I'd quite like to see it. It's optional for the folk who would rather not say anyway.

As for what he gets called at home... Are we allowed to say stuff like that on a family friendly forum?! :D :P
