Yes but you get people just putting "UK" or "the moon" etc etc so I removed it and just left it optional
ah ok, sounds about right

The idea is to add your location to your profile...... :wink:

Anyway.....you're near us. Do you get to The white Swan at Conington on Tuesday evenings or Hartford Marina on Wednesday evenings?
I feel the need....the need for Speed......Triple

Three times I've been helping people with tech stuff recently where they didn't have the necessary tools, all of which were sitting in my garage, all three I had to ask where they were to see if it was worthwhile offering to pop over with it. Location in profile would be helpful.

Perhaps I should put Conwy rather than a more general North Wales ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hi
Unable to access anything from the drop down menu under my user name so cant edit profile and add location. The screen gives the briefest of flickers but displays the same page. Thought it might not like my ipad but having hoicked out my laptop still no joy.
Any suggestions?
