Hey! I got an idea that will certainly speed up things on Lawnsite. You know where you have your name, member status, number of posts and date registered? Well, you REALLY should put the members location somewhere in there (should atleast be as specific as the state they're in). It would speed things up by not having to always load a seperate profile page(especially for us slower downloading types). Pretty Please??? You should also incorporate a new policy to celebrate your first annual celebration coming up soon. The policy would be making it mandatory to state location when registering to become a member after 12/21/00 or 12/22/00. Every member who benefits from us owes us at least that much. So what do you think? Will you try any of the ideas?

Ill second this idea.

Sounds good to me.

Another good idea!

as this involves modifying database, it may take time, but I should be able to do it before New Year.


Merry Christmas Everyone!

I see you got it working. You did good. :)
This will be a big help, thanks again.

I'm glad to help! :)

Do you think there are some things I should change or if you find it ok like this?


Note: I made a program that detected if you had entered your location in your biography (it looked for "Location:", sorry for those who removed it, it wasn't noticed); if so, it took it, put it as your location and removed it from your bio as location is a separate information now.

The change looks good! Thanks!

As I see, there are still 530 people which didn't indicate their location. Please go in your profile and fill it, it takes less than a minute and will help other people know who you are.

When registering to become a member, why couldn't the location field be required as e-mail adress is required.

thanks for the suggestion, but it is already the case since I added the location feature (also, you cannot modify your profile without providing a location) :)

Good work.

Could you also add age and years in business. I think that would help a lot in giving appropriate responses to peoples questions.
