Folks - Why don't most of you use the location option? I'm not gonna come to your house and steal your bike, but many, many of the folks don't put anything in the location spot. Why not?

Maybe cruiser or the mods could encourage it. It's really nice to know where folks are.

thier is not storng parameters on the location area. they can put usa or anything else they want but something must be put in that spot, the other way it was set up putting your location was not an option at sign up and you had to go to the user cp after joining to make any changes or to ad your location which for new people on computers is a little bit of a challenge for i remember well on the first forum i joined seeing people with the location on their post wanting to have the same thing and not being able to figure out how to ad it to mine.

I live in on Lexington ave in High Point NC. That railroad of Joe's began around here somewhere I'm sure.

Just ask for the old man with the weird bikes anyone can point out the house.

People can enter "State of Mind" or Rio if they want, but most people don't mind really. It's more like most people don't want the hassle of digging around in CP for the right entry area. IMHO.
