I would like to see Members' locations, purely because of time differences.

OTOH, if the information was obligatory, I expect there would just be a proliferation of 'amusing' locations. :lol:

Yeah, I read that earlier, but I'm talking about replying to individual members and not knowing whether they're going to be around, when I am. Not an attack on your Location!!

Location is optional because some members might consider it personal information. It completely depends on the individual's personal feelings about their privacy how much if any information they share.

Most forum users understand that Members live in many time-zones and do not expect immediate replies (similar to E-mail in that regard). Because of BC's large user base with people from all over the world, help is not tied to everyone living more or less in the same area of the world.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

In addition to which, some people are night owls, some people are early birds, and some people are active in the afternoon and evening. So even if you know where someone lives, that doesn't mean that that person would be on at the same time as you.
