It helps ENORMOUSLY to know where you live when advice is given out in the Forum in answer to your many questions.

i.e. It is pointless to give Yamaha UK's contact details to a US member. :?

Likewise, news of ebay items, or other suppliers that are UK based are unlikely to excite US or Continental European members, due to shipping constraints, and the resulting cost implications. 8O

Similarly, if you are offering gear for sale, in the forum, its useful to know "where you are", so prospective purchasers can see if they MIGHT be able to collect.

Also, time consuming communications to establish these facts are avoided too 8)

As you can see (right), I am in the UK

So please do visit the User control panel/edit profile and enter your "location"

It helps us serve you better . . . . ((i))

I'll second that Chris. Only takes a minute to update your profile with your location. Doesn't have to be the town or city, just country would do. I normally check people's ip address before giving country specific info but, it's one more step to go through before answering a post.

So as Chris said, either add your country to your profile or mention where your from in your post. It would be much appreciated :)
