    OP's Location.

    Whenever i click on a item im interested in i always look at the posters location first. If he's more than 50 miles away i just back out.

    Is it possible to put a new tab in with "Poster's Location."

    so it would go something like.

    No. The best we can hope for is that the OP actually puts their location in their profile. I will do the same thing as you. I look at the location and if it's a long ways I will ask if they are willing to ship (parts or accessories) and if not than I pass.

    I have no idea if it's possible, or if it'd be an overwhelming amount of work, but could you restrict a users account unless the location field was filled out? Something along the lines of if they don't list a location, they won't have permission to post in the WTS forums?

    As of right now, no. However the board will be going through some changes that I can't discuss so hopefully soon we will be able to do something like that.

    Sounds like a good time to ramp up awareness of the button!

    Here is a note that I keep to "copy" and "paste" to people along with a "Welcome to SGN."
    Seems they usually go hand in hand:

    FYI
    If you would go to your User Control Panel, then to profile, under location, put a town or landmark near you, it will give people an idea of where you are located. It will show up under your name when you post something. It may help in your sales, because people usually figure in how much gas they have to use to get to you.

    I often get kind reply's of "Thanks", but once in a while I get an "attitude" answer back.

    Just something I do to try helping the newer people. We were all "Newbe's" at one time or another. I am glad I had some one to help me back a few posts!.
