    If it is possible to make everyone fill in what country they live in, I think that should be enacted. This is because there are a million threads on here that deal with consumer products, which are usually particular to a country. Most products are not internationally available. So, whenever someone asks "hey, anyone know a good vegan vitamin/milk/cheese etc?" my first thought is always..."well, what country do you live in?"...that is necessary information.

    It makes sense what you're suggesting, but it is beyond my moderation abilities. You'll have to wait until Damo sees this. I'm not sure if it's possible or not. There could be some privacy issues at hand in regards to making it mandatory. You can always ask the OP in the meantime.

    I think we can and have done that on a voluntary basis. I sort of remember seeing posts that start of with here in the USA we have this brand. Also as you get more familiar with the multi-nationality of this forum you just sort of figure things out. For instance, I can now recognize those crazy Brits by the names of their grocery stores. Really?! what kind of name is Tesco? or Asda? :p

    Hey @nobody

    Great idea though I don't think everyone would be willing to give their location even if we're not asking for their exact location, we do have a reminder to fill in location history on signup though.

    Oi mate who are you calling bonkers? ;)
