A two part question...
Can we encourage people to put their location in when they sign up, and
Would it be possible to have a main list which identified members(only by edugeek name, of course) and locations so that we can use it as a resource for getting help locally?
I did go through a stage of badgering people about this... you will always get some that insist on hiding or putting a silly name in the location box.
Thanks mortstar, I do know about this but not everyone does it - in fact it seems that most do not.
A list would be easier for quick access anyway
Hmm - thought I'd posted on this thread this morning... !
I think we could encourage members to put something. Even a very rough idea of where you are is better than nothing - say 'North East' or 'South Wales' for example.
Some of us want an "appearance" of anonymity...
..so we can say disparaging remarks about our LEA / School / Boss, without it getting back to them..
Would geographical co-ordinates suffice?Originally Posted by mark
Lat/Long, postcode, locator square... yes
I do understand the need for anonymity but I would have thought that a county name would be OK unless it is really really really small!
you can find u on tom tom
If I put my county then everyone here knows it's me. It's not like in a city - here we have 13 high schools in the whole county.
Still, mark, at least in your case you can put a country so that anyone who wanted help would at least be able to narrow it down a bit!
Why couldnt you be one of the others?
And why not use a less identifiable name!!
@WITCH: County ? What County ? I don't live/work in a county.
That should narrow it down to an MBC, and there's only a few of them.
Heh - yeah... my real name is EarlOriginally Posted by WITCH
well mark, at least you could place England, Wales Scotland, Ireland or elsewhere, you are part of the management team in edugeek, so everybody says the boses should put the example , I dont know why I keep thinking of that phrase for the prince (Do as I say and not as I Do)
