(one day the forum developers will cotton on that this is done a lot on forums and will link the profile info into a map so you can see/search for people local to you. As it is we have to make do with threads like this :rolleyes: )

That's what I'm saying, this way it's much easier to see which members live near you.

That's great, I've never seen that before. I just thought even if it's how I've set it out here, at least it's an easy place to find who else lives near you.

That is quite cool, is it auto generated? Shame there's no obvious way to zoom in.


not sure, i have my location in my profile and yet there is only 2 dots (1 in london, 1 in bath area) and i am in nottinghamshire :!:

so i dont know how it works, i know there are quite a few people of here on there too but not sure if they have typed in there location

EDIT: thinking about it, it would go on IP address anyway :rolleyes: :oops:

You could of corse go to the members list and sort by location? better than nothing.

I wonder what distance metric it uses to sort... euclidean at best, alphabetical at worst ;)
