BARTERTOWN RULES

Post by tgc » Tue Jun 18, 2013 4:34 pm

Why is a required field for posting a reference, the State that a person lives in, but when you check their references, the State is not listed. This can make it unduly difficult to post a reference especially when some of the shipping companies don't list a return address.

[Split off from an inappropriate thread to the correct forum, in its' own thread.]

This is information we like to have in our database. Not all of the information is necessarily there for the benefit of the end user.
We understand that, in come cases, you won't have that information. Just choose something like "APO." Yes, I realize that it's counter-intuitive but, at this point, it's the best option we have available to us.

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.

And, tgc, since this is missing in your own profile, if EVERYONE put their location (at least at the state level) in their profile, BAM! Problem solved.
