    Why not list state of residence in Profile information page ?
    Do not have to list address or even city but state will the various laws would save a lot of back and forth on the marketplace forum...

    "From" indicates it's on your rearview mirror. So, CA is a good state to be "from"

    That's a good idea for a number of reasons. One I can think of right away is that it would allow the membership to learn where others nearby are located and get a chance to greet and meet each other.

    We do request that new registrants list their U.S. state in their "Location" during sign-up. This is one way we do background checks to benefit the security of all members.

    Been saying this for years, I won't buy anything from anyone who doesn't list his state. Almost as agrivateing as fokes who list shoot's coming up with just the range name, no State, town or anything, like everyone in the US is familiar with that one range......

    So why not a blanket PM to all members asking them to do so as well.
    I don't see what the issue is with listing State.
    Address, Phone Numbers, Bank numbers, SS number, Maiden Name yes but State, REALLY. :confused:

    Name your State. Sometimes it is difficult to give advice when location is not known. So, help us help you... mike in ct
