    Default Where are You?

    Most people post their location in their profile, but many don't. It's easier to help someone with a question if we know where they live. It's also interesting to know that I am communicating with someone halfway around the world or just a couple of miles away.

    You don't have to give detailed, personal information. The town and state would be fine.

    EDIT: Country, too.

    Or Country..

    Especially when selling, so us folks outside of the US (yes, there are people out there) know if to respond or not.
    If your uke is too loud, your neighbours are wrong.

    I totally agree. The location, especially the country, is the first thing I look at after knowing the make and the price of the uke.

    With only twenty-three ukes, I can understand why you look at the Marketplace. I have forty, and I do the same thing every day.

    In a very localized (and somewhat arcane/archaic) dialect, my very user name tells folks where I am...but since even many people in my neck of the woods have never heard of the term "Swamp Yankee", I made it a point to add my location when I joined up.

    To those of us outside of the US of A, just look at the price, if it's $, forget it, even if it's not there, it'll be Canada or Australia.

    My grandfather told me when I was a kid that we come from "a long line of Swamp Yankees". Come to find, he was right.... one of my ancestors married a woman of the Hopkins line (from the Mayflower) and absconded with his bride from Puritan Massachusetts to the "swamps" of Connecticut in 1739 .. We're still here.
