Just to clarify, Jeff is considering putting a field in the "personal profile" which would allow YOU to put your zip code in and allow Jeff (and whomever he delegates) to sort by that zip code to help us establish "chapters" (or at least determine that there is no interest in a "neighborhood").

So, you don't need to give us your zip code here (where it is kind of public). When he asks for it, it will only be "mostly private".

ED, so what about adding 'postal codes' to take care of the Canucks? Occasionally we come out of 'hibernation' from the deep freeze and turn an occasional pen.

Thanks Darrell for thinking 'globally'.

The postal code suggestion is a good one, not just for our Canadian brothers and sisters, but also for members in the UK, Australia, Europe, South America, Africa and Asia. Any penturners in Antarctica?

If Jeff adds a field for the "zip code" and formats it to be alphanumeric with 9 positions (for the US zip plus four), it would also accomodate every code I have seen in shipping all over the world. Even Canada's weird alternate letters and numbers.

I am in 80010. Privacy really is a fallacy.

Yep, 73507.

Now how about one of those interactive maps that has dots representing all the members and you can click on an area which displays all the members in the area or near-by zip codes. It wouln'd need to be narrowed down to actual addresses. If I click on Oklahoma it would show a bunch of dots that I could click on that would then show the members name in their respective zip code. Like they do for different brand stores.

No, thank you. I get WAY TOO MUCH junk mail, already.

Imagine going on a trip and being able to lookup members on your route!
Of course, this is what we're considering. There are many technological options that will make this fun and useful, and I''ll be investigating them. We had this feature in the old forum, but I never got around to coding it here.
