HI guys

I was wondering ... like I don't think it will be possible, but we'll see. >.<

Specifically on the Buy/Sell/Trade area, would it be possible to have the post come up with say a flag or location on it?

A lot of fish stuff can only be sold locally, and it would be wonderful to be able to see the origin location easily, so you know whether there's any chance of you being able to buy from them.

More of an ease of use suggestion

Otherwise, my proposed suggestion is to just ask everyone to put their city/state location in the thread title.

Profit ???

Yes, it would be easier if the area was in the title, but if you know the members, you know where most of them are from at a glance of the name. I avoid this section as no-one in the UK is ever in there

Putting it in titles I can see working

Isn't there a little flag under everyone's name by the avatar?

There is, but you would have to go into the thread to see it. For members not in the US, to be able to see the location before reading the post and deciding you want the item, to find out you cannot get it... Can be frustrating...

Just simply putting the country (or even state) in the title saves going through a lot of posts, it will be easier to find what we can get rather than go through stuff we can't

Dang Mathas, you're quick!

I think this is a great suggestion/reminder.

Edit: The title of this thread has been edited so it serves as a reminder.

Couldn't they just put Country's names in the prefixes box? Atleast in the B\S\T...?

Ah so it is!

Thanks

I would lovelovelove to be able to buy/trade from the thread but I've given up hope on spotting Aussie sellers and don't have time to look at all the threads anyway Hopefully the reminder will go down well

Plus some people don't put more info in than just the country flag, which doesn't help you to estimate shipping charges or if you are able to pick up a LPO item. If everyone would put in at least their state, and preferably city, it would be helpful
