How about requiring a location in your profile before you can start a new post in Buy/Sell/Trade?

As long as you put a location in the post, don't see why you need one in your profile.

"Where are you located?" is probably the most asked question in that forum, and on every other similar website with a for sale forum.

I repeat, as long as you put the location in the actual post, don't see a need to put it in your profile.

If people can't read that's their problem.

Problem, even if you put the location in you profile like yours how does the buyer know where you are? You have 2 locations. So they are gonna ask where are you located.

Dave or anyone could post a format of how to post a for sale add and people aren't going to follow it.

At least they know what state I am in.
Try listing something for sale on CL, or Ebay, and not follow the format, and see how far you get. You get directed right back to the previous page, and a red box that says, "Fill this in, Knucklehead"

Maybe not practical with Dave's software, but it was just a suggestion, and got a thousand views, so maybe people will be more aware of it.

I thought it was a tremendous suggestion, and many, many great people told me it was the best idea they had ever heard ;)

1000 views 7 takers, now 8 counting me. That's 992 don't cares.
Dave has more on his plate, but it is a different idea.

Anything in the for sale section will get views especially depending on the title.

Ebay, craigslist, FB and other for sale sites are coded specifically to make a for sale add. If thats the suggestion that dave build write a code when making a new thread to require certain data be entered before the thread is submitted then thats one thing. But to require a location be in your profile is a bit tough. Not everyone wants that much known.

That was the idea, just to require the location in the ad. Profile seemed the simplest way. I forgot that paranoia would outweigh profit for some.
