'Location' Display

Under my name on the left, I can only get it to display 'United Kingdom', whereas plenty of other people have more specific locations that they've modified themselves (as opposed to selected from a list).

I'm sure they're not all Premio members so have I missed an option somewhere??

I believe the option disappeared some time ago - something to do with data protection blah blah. So prior to that decision you could be specific and those that were have kept their location.
I started an "east anglia owners" location thread as i wanted to see who was about in my locality.

Re: 'Location' Display

Thing is I always had a specific location before and then it disappeared. As for data protection - surely anything we enter into a box we know will be publically displayed is our own responsibility?

Re: 'Location' Display

I think it was a new feature, I changed mine and lost the BC part of mine too. Now it just shows Canada. The others that are still showing a city as location haven't updated their profile yet.
This is the default for the program, we can put both down but only the country shows up.

Re: 'Location' Display

I like people to know where I am (roughly). I feel, as a rep, it's important

Exactly.

I'm now unable to change any part of my profile because 'the system' wants me to change my location details too.

Also, It's impossible to identify new members from my area unless they introduce themselves.

Sort it out admin!

Have you read this thread?

It is what I just fixed yesterday. When anyone makes a post on AO the County/State shows up at every post if that area is known in our database. To newbies it is a required field (and for rest as well as soon as they change their profile) so whenever a newbie posts you know automatically their Location + Area
