I thought this post was about members was about telling others their location, not having a dig at where people are located.
:roll:
I have to agree.
Let's not have any "North V South" nonsense please.
Plus any reference to where people are born and bred as in "recent arrivals" is going straight in the bin.

Hey, don’t forget that though I now live in Leeds I’m an Essex boy. I hadn’t a clue where Leeds was in relation to Chelmsford till I followed family tradition in galloping, well, okay, in my case, driving, up and down the A1. Before then, when I was going by train I just knew it was somewhere reached via Kings Cross.

I used to get my railway display cabinets from Sandwell. I always collected them either as part of a day out or on the way back from Devon or Cornwall.
Warley Model Railway Club?

If so, they are about a mile up the road from here...
No they have a massive show at the NEC every year but I hate the NEC having been there 3 times.

Everyone knows where Lands End and John O'Groats are but what about Britain's most easterly point, that's where I'm located :D
Funny you should say that...

Just over a week before the Beast from the East hit, SWMBO and I were in Gas Works Road, working out how many of the places on the floor plaque we had been to so far :mrgreen:

Not the most scenic of locations is it :lol:

Slightly off topic, but we have a fabulous set of countries in the UK with such fantastic views and yet many people cannot say where a certain town or city is. I am very lucky indeed as there is, within around 60-90 minutes drive from where I live, the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Trough of Bowland. The Derbyshire Peak District and fabulous North Wales with Snowdonia National Park. Furthur afield Devon, Cornwall and The South Coast, Norfolk The North Yorks Moors, The Scottish Highlands and Lowlands. All great places to visit. I have yet to visit Ireland (North and South) All these places are well worth a visit if you want a holiday at home. No, it doesn't always rain in Scotland as some think. We have had several super summer holidays there with wall to wall sunshine.

Just for information, it is possible to check locations via "IP address look up" so please make sure what you post as your location is the same as where your IP address is located.
;)
Thanks.

Hi Phil, that fails in the modern era of work away, due to working in one place and living in another and accessing the forum from both locations.
I write this from Leeds West Yorks, but live 50 miles away in East Yorks, I'm sure many people on the forum from the South East work in London but live somewhere else in the South East, the same for many conurbations in the UK.

Also fails if you’re using a VPN, my IP is currently showing Denmark even though I’m typing this in Lancashire (whilst wearing a tin foil hat :lol: )

I'm not talking about where you are on a daily basis.
When you register you have to show your location and your initial registration shows the IP address you are registering from.
If they don't marry up then it's cause for concern.
No, I'm not talking about slight differences in counties in the UK either.
If someone registers saying they are in Birmingham or even just a county such as Kent or wherever and the IP says they are in Cairo then I'm going to look into it.

Yes, and I allow for that so if a new member has an IP and location that are very different then I give them the chance to explain why behind the scenes so to speak.
