In member search, could there be a section to type in a location. Just to make it easier to find members that are in particular areas?

The Phoogle Map is really designed to do exactly what you're talking about, but graphically. phoogle.php?mode=everyone

Just zoom in on your state or geographic area and you're good to go. The only problem is that not every member has updated the Phoogle Map with their location.

Unfortunately I think a lot of people are unsure when it comes to publicly posting their location. I have actually seen quite a few people REMOVE their location from their profile info.

Yea, many people don't like to give any hint to their actual location, and I actually suggest never using your home address for anything like this. Stick to the city level or larger.

As for searching, you can sort the 54 pages of members by location, only it sorts alphabetically, so depending on what and how they entered into that field it may be difficult to find everyone in a certain area. As mentioned above, the phoogle map was to close the gaps on that... for those who wish to participate.

It's just a default location. I set it to Europe on purpose so we didn't have 100 members in any town USA who didn't update their locations. It's easier to pick them out that way.
