Why your LOCATION is really useful!

Post by MikeC » Thu Mar 17, 2005 8:53 pm

Many people don't fill in this box in their SPCR Forum Member profile. Here is why you should:

1) SPCR Forum is a global community. People from all over the world make up this community. The current breakdown:

North Am ~48% (US 40%, Canada 8.5%)
EU ~41%
Asia ~5.4%
Oceania ~4.7%
The rest...

Identifying your locale helps everyone communicate a little more effectively.

2) Some information is very localized & if others know where you are (at least roughly), they can be much more helpful. For example, ssking about the availability of a product without reference to where you are is... silly. But this happens often.

3) We're going to make this a mandatory field very soon anyway, even for those who are already registered, so you might as well do it now.

I have thought about asking for this in the Site Feedback forum, but wanted to lookup if it was possible first.
