    Can we get the location to show up in the profile/avatar spot so we can see where people are when they post?

    @WesL you can find that at Appearance > Style Properties > Message Elements. Don't know if you knew it already, but thought I might save you a second or 2 looking it up.

    I am all too familiar with that scenario! I'm trying to check in every little while. If there's anything I can do to help, just drop me a pm. :)

    A mark forums read button would be a great addition.

    @stebo Top left side of the screen. You can mark ALL forums read or just the one that you're in.

    I would like to make a special request that all future snow events (and their threads) must include me getting snow or they can not happen. I get snow or no one gets snow.

    Thanks.

    I went to integrate with FB and it didn't allow me, is that not an option?

    It would be neat if we could have a script query all the Locations from users and put them on a map so we know where most users reside visually. I imagine that'd be quite the project though :p

    Something like this: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/user-map.5188/

    We have a membership with an organization that has like 100's of plugins. If they have one I'll add it.

    It would be like a extra warning system for people that not sure if their warning systems is accurate or just want extra things repeating to them right one said as a extra heads up. I'm up for that idea.

    Found the add-on. Installed it tonight but haven't had time to configure it. Should have something in a few days.

    I don't know how big of a burden this would be from a storage standpoint, but I would like to have the ability to upload images directly instead of having to link them.

    You can upload them. Next to the post reply button there should be an Upload a File button. Let me know if you don't see it.
