As a new member here, and a recent re-entry into the car hobby, I spend a lot of time reading on this board. I follow the current posts 2 to 3 times a day, and when I have something I think is helpful to offer I do so. I also use the search function often, and have spent hours and hours reading older threads on several topics.

One of the things I've noticed has already been brought up - titling threads to make them easier to find later on.

Another thing is user information. Many members don't fill out anything about their location, or other identifying information.

I can understand the desire to protect yourself, and this board IS an open publicly accessible forum, but there are often times when it would be helpful to know where someone is located or helpful information about them. I list my location as Hilltown PA which is a fairly large township that includes numerous smaller specific towns and PO divisions. So I don't have to give away where my precious FL vehicle is hidden, but people reading my posts have some idea if I'm close to them or not.

Anybody else have an opinion about this?
