We’re rolling out a couple of new profile preferences options today: the ability to make the “Contributions” and “Social” segments of your profile page visible only to logged-in members, and the ability to enter your geographic coordinates but have them not be visible to anyone else. Come on in for some details! [more inside]
Would it be possible to make the "location" section a link to a list of MeFites nearby? [more inside]
Entering your location (lat/long) in your profile gives a street address in Google Maps when you click on the icon. This seems to be new, and fairly accurate. My guess is that some people do not want others to see this and will want to obfuscate their location. [more inside]
Hows about adding a free-form (go nuts) Born line to profile pages? [previ03ly]
Is there any way to make it possible to choose between the map/lat-long feature and the zipcode list or list without a map? [mi]
I cannot add latitude/longitude to my userpage. More inside.
Has anyone ever come up with a method or numbering scheme that would allow the "Users Near This User" option to work for non-US members? If not, could something be developed? (For example, are there unused Zip code numbers that could be designated to major world cities, regions or countries and which would then allow me to see other Canadians who live in my city or at least province?)
