    We are looking to run a query on the database to see how many members we have in different areas of the country and across the globe. This will be important for planning meet ups, gatherings and events. We don't need specifics such as what part of town you live in or even what town you live in if you are uncomfortable with that, but we would like for you to at least insert a state and maybe even a region of the state.

    For instance, I have Sapulpa, Oklahoma in mine since I'm comfortable with that but I could have also put Northeast Oklahoma or even Tulsa area, Oklahoma and that would have been equally good.

    It will also be fun to see what states and areas have the largest representation here at SMF.. I will post that information once I have it.

    Can you folks help me out with this?

    Instructions:
    1. Click on "My Profile"
    2. Click on "Edit Community Profile"
    3. Fill in or Edit the "Location" field
    I sure appreciate it!

    Thanks Jeff.  It also helps to know where people are when they ask questions that might have to do with climate or altitude.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I moved the off topic posts to the "Where is everyone" thread.. this thread is a "call to action" to get folks to add/update their actual location within the "My Profile" area.

     I guess some people might be hiding out. [​IMG]

     Really though it is helpful to know where the member is from, as it can play a major factor in the help they are offered.
     
  7. Yeah but they don't have to even use their real name. [​IMG]

    That.. I don't know. I am hoping to get a database of states with the number of members in each state and even a more detailed listing of the actual members in each state and I'll have to see what I can do with it to make it visually informative. Just trying to get everyone to update their locations before we get them to run it for us.

    Is location info searchable for us rank-and-file non-mod types?  I've looked but haven't found it.  I'm trying to track down people near me to see if I can see a smoker hands on before I dive into a build project.  It would be really helpful if that info was searchable somehow.
