Read post after post and the only thing I know about the arthur is their screen name-not the state they are from or live in and the present problem with their machine. My self I am curious of where everyone lives. I am glad of two memeber that live right around the corner from me. I probably never would have know them if it hadn't been for GTTalk and the members map.

Many of y'all that have been here for a good while have gotten to know each other kind of like brothers.

Are there any thoughts on this subject.Or may I should have why do some elect not to place at least a state,

Dick

I think its nice too to know where other members live. Not necessarily their home address, but at least a location and state, ie Central Michigan or such.

I think it should be manditory to have at least a state. That doesn't infringe on anyones privacy. Maybe exemptions for Jr. members. Just my thought

I like to know where people are from also. But some of the members either don't think about it or don't want to put where they live up. It's their choice I guess. But yeah,I think it's cool to know where everybody's located.

Doesn't bother me!!! I don't care if anybody knows where I live. LOL.
Where the Heck IS Earlville?!?! I have never heard of it!! LOL

It's up to the member whether or not they share any private or personal information in the the 'information age' Some folks are just private..

Haha, you have a definite point there. A whopping 800 people live in Earlville. I like it though. To give you some bearing of where I live, Syracuse is about 45 mins. north/northwest of me.

Oh, and BTW I have never heard of Avon either though. LOL.

I want y'all to know I don't really care where y'all live but just for conversation sake, at least the state and then if you want to give the city but like WNYtractor said "where in the world is Earlville', I myself don't care were it is but if is close to me which could be interestings as a new friend or someone that has a part close by that I really need.

Ha LTD, I know exactly where you live-so look out.

Gaston County...........is that Gastonia? I used to date a girl that drove for her dad's trucking company up there in Kings Mountain.....................Cant for the life of me remember the name of the company. They were off exit 13 (I think) You could see their yard from the interstate. ON the Northbound side of the interstate.

It's not mandatory. I think the OP saw a For Sale thread with a cheap GT he really wanted and the seller doesn't have a location listed. Sour grapes, me thinks.

I'm a Cheese Head hope no one holds that against me lol
I do. Wait. What was the Vikes record against the Pack this year? Oh yeah, 1-2. Yep, I hate ya. Best case scenerio is congenial disdain until next season.

Just ask around locally. Someone can point you to the house.
Yeah, I'd start with the Sheriff's office. Then I could just wait ten minutes and get a ride there.

I would like it if everyone had some kind of location in their avatar. I'm on the map within 20 mines of where I live. I will have to see this post to remember what mine says. LOL

They don't come by anymore. I kept breaking the handcuffs.
Of course, once they are broken, they are scrap..."Hey, can I keep these too?"

I think it's nice to have a general idea where people are, but I can see why you wouldn't want all your info out there. Google and the like can find most anything on the web, and it is sometimes surprising what they come up with. That's how that stranger in Tennesse ? was able to contact me about the farm I grew up on, Google found the info.

I would also like at least a state, but it is up to the member. There are members who have been here for a long time, active posters and they have NO information about themselves listed. It is not a big deal, like I said it is up to the member.
