Post A geographical request
I'm just thrilled with the number of people who have already joined up. Now I have a request for some of you.

This is an international board - not UK-based like the Oasis.

I see that many people have registered their membership with "My Town, UK" and that's great.

But some others have just put the name of a town or a region.

I'd like those people to go back into their profiles and add "England" or "Wales" or "Scotland" or "Ireland" or "UK" to their location.

In general, can people please include their country in their location?

Thanks.

I'll second that. It can be mildly irksome when someone's talking about their growing experiences and you haven't a clue where they're based.

Good suggestion - I hadn't realised how often I look to the left of the post to see where the author is based.

England has now been added to mine.

Good point, David. I even added "Central Europe" because many people have no idea where Slovakia is :lol:

Being very geographically skilled myself, I find it funny.

I'm thrilled to be a part of what promises to be a terrific forum. It was discovered by another "on the edge" gardener in Northern California who raves about it. I can see why.

Perhaps those of us who are "on the edge" of the main geographical distribution of the membership could also indicate their latitude. Just a thought.
