Modified Location listings...

I have just noticed that there is no option in the drop down list for 'Bath' (as in the city, not the bathroom!) - is there a reason why this is not there, or is it intended to be covered by another county/bigger city in the list, or just geuinely missed off?

Bristol is the nearest option and I guess that the guys here from Bath will have to just go with that?



(This has nothing to do with the fact I'm moving out that way soon! )

Re: Modified Location listings...

I noticed the change earlier. It seems a bit of a retrograde step if you ask me.

Sorry to be blunt, but I speak as I find.

Re: Modified Location listings...

It made me change last week when I updated the new car.

Not happy losing my Manchester location tag. It's good knowing whereabouts everyone lives IMHO.

It's not broken, its's not meant to display the local location at the moment.

Until we hear back from our data protection officer, we are unable to display real time locations hence why google maps are now unavailable on AO. Unless you want to start having disclaimers all over the place, we will have to wait and see what happens when the licence is received.

Re: Modified Location listings...

That's fair enough Ian. So is it the case that if Joe Public chooses to make his/her location known to others it's fine, but as a forum, you cannot forcibly show anyones listed location due to the possible contraventions of the Data Protection Act?

All companies no matter ow big or small have a responsability to protect personal identifiable information held on its databases, we are simply doing that right now until we get clarification from our advisor. I am confident you will all see the return of local location info on your posts at some stage.

Re: Modified Location listings...

At least I now understand, thanks. I appreciate the need for caution.

Nonetheless, it is a non-sensical interpretation of the Act when you think about it.

(a) it is relatively non-specific as to area never mind address, (b) it is a personal choice so some choose unreal/silly locations and are not prevented from doing so and (c) most importantly IMO, everyone goes by their user name rather than real name so there is no disclosure of personal details on the forum.

Re: Modified Location listings...

I know it's a pain for all our friends in other countries, but is it not possible to have the 'Club Regions' as an option for the UK-ers Ian?
