Pony Request. Would it be possible to have a 'local' tab similar to 'My Ask' that displayed questions from users nearby? [more inside]
How big a radius does the "nearby metafilter members" feature cover? [more inside]
Disabled accounts show up in "nearby users." I clicked on this profile and then had to click on this username (because, WTF? Was santorum taken?). Well, to make matters slightly weirder, a search for santorum brings up the username and the user's "real" name, though it's no longer visible in the profile.
Wolof has seven Nearby users. Of the seven, two (naturesgreatestmiracle and twirlypen) have error! instead of Nearby users. [more inside]
Is there room for personal preference in the "users close to you box"?
I'm just wondering how many other Las Vegas MeFites are out there...
As a follow-up to this post from last year, is anything happening with the members nearby feature being extended to cover people that don't have a zip code? If the latitude and longitude thing is too much work can we group people outside the US by country?
I respect the new zipcode geotracker as much as the next guy, but I think it would be that much cooler if there were a page where we could enter a zipcode and see the users around it. I'm road-tripping next week, and it would be awesome to see which of my favorite MeFites lie en route.
