    I'm noticing that a fair number of people don't give any hint of geographical location in their header. I find it helpful to know at least what country or area of a large country people are in. It can have a bearing on how a question might be answered. For one, if someone is asking about availability of a species, it gives others a clue about appropriate answers. I don't need to know what city (I'm not going to come raid your growing area ;)), but I do like to know a bit about the people I am exchanging information with.

    When I was registering I indignantly thought "You don't need to know where I'm located", but now I'm glad I answered it. I understand that some people may not want to do that, but if you overlooked it originally, you might want to add it now.
