    That is all that's needed , A state and general area of that state.

     i have done a few exchanges w/ other members and even sent a few gifts.

    I know a few first names and sometime i just cant remeber names ( Damn senility)

     Most of the folks that i know on a first name basis i have met at one of the gatherings and i now consider them friends.

     We have a great thing here on SMF and i understand if you don't want to tell where you live, but you have to understand that w/o that information we can only give you general answers when you have problems w/ smokes.
     
  2. Some of the people that don't include a locale only post a few times anyway. Many ask a question, get an answer and never post again. Thats inevitable and doesn't bother me. If you stay here and join our little brethren you should know that its a community of some pretty decent people. As far as I know SMF isn't populated by hackers so feel free to tell us where you live. My city and state are in my profile and my house, it's contents, my wife and my dog are still here!

    Good point Paul:

    Let's see California population------40 million.

    "Southern Cal"-------+20 million ?

    That narrows it down, huh?   LOL

    Now I put in my profile that I am from Macungie, PA  (Population last census----3,039).----------->> Bring it !!!

    Bear   GRRRRRRR

    I agree with all about saying where you are from.. I post  awhile back and ask Jeff  to see if he could get a map and put a pin by each member to show what city and state they are from and have a usa map with all the members on it...,, I hope Jeff is still work on this idea,, maybe if we all email and  suggest  something like this to Jeff he will get on it.. just a idea...
     
  5. Nobody has stolen my smoker off my front porch yet.

    I live in one of the most thieving communities in the US and I worry more about who is going up and down the streets and alleys scoping things out than who is watching on the internet. 

    Hell I had a 28ft Ladder chained to a fence post and they couldn't cut the chain so they sawed the fence post off and stole the ladder, chain and padlock and I am pretty sure it was a man who used to mow for us because of where the ladder was... 

    I have never had a problem with people I met on the internet and i have done exchanges with a bunch of them and also sold lots of things on Craig's list.

    Under your community profile it says

    “Enter whatever you’d like the world to know about you! Everything here is optional but whatever you enter will be displayed publicly.”

    Then starts out with Location as the first thing to fill out, so right after reading the statement above (in bold), folks may just skip it until they feel more comfortable on the forum, then just forget to go back.


    The instructions could state something like,

    “Enter whatever you’d like SMF members to know about  you, this information will  be public and  is optional, however we urge you to enter a location at the least, (City and State are adequate) as this may be needed for other forum members to give you an accurate answer to any questions you may have”

    Or something similar.


    Some folks are reluctant to give out any info and I don’t blame them, this still should remain 100 % optional.

    You have Philly on yours.

    That's a lot of people, but I could find you real easy, if I know what day you're smoking!

    Bear

    Like I said, if people have a problem with putting their city, they could put SouthEast Pa instead of Philly, Downingtown, Macungie, or whatever.

    The only ones who should be afraid of putting something like that would have to be Dr Richard Kimble, the one armed man, or some other fugitive from the law!

  10. But Richard Kimble was innocent.

    Good Idea, It's not like we are asking for their first born male child...

    LOL---We lost a bolt cutter at a tower on Woodhaven Road.   Not actually lost it.

    Some Bozo put the wrong combo lock on the gate, and we had to get in to do a 6 antenna change-out between 11PM & 6 AM.

    I had one of the young climbers cut the chain with one of our special keys (bolt cutter). It didn't cut all the way through, so he twisted the handles, and snapped the jaws!

    This was a few years ago, but I didn't smell any smoke then.  [​IMG]

    This wouldn't be me, would it? Without a street address, I'd be pretty darn hard to find...we're not even on most road maps...LOL!!!

    Eric,

    You my friend would be real easy to find!

    I would not need a street address, directions, GPS, or a blood hound to find your smoker !

    Bear

    PS:  If any newbies missed the point of this thread, please put where you are from in your Bio page, such as:

    City & state

    Part of state (SouthEast PA)

    That will make it come up on all your posts (top right).

    This will sometimes make it easier to help you, and sometimes make a statement make sense to others.

    Such as, If you say you're having trouble keeping the temp up in your MES 30, being from North Dakota in January gets a slightly different answer than being from Southern Cal.

    Thank You,

    Bear

    But it wouldn't all fit
