Regarding the search function to be used for finding folks by location; I heartily endorse the idea. I travel in and out of my home country, and the ability to make contact with folks in my travels would be great. Only a short time ago, in late December, I was wishing that this feature existed prior to a trip to Sweden.

Sure, some people do not put a location, or include only a partial location, but .... perhaps that is because there is no reason, such as a search function that makes use of it, to provide the information.

Another alternative, as has been done at ExpertMagic; add a forum for people specifically to announce where they are from. I know that some contacts have been made based upon that forum.

Either way, this would not intrude on the privacy of people who do not wish to provide the information, as it would not (have to) be mandatory. People can be as specific, or general in divulging their location as they feel comfortable, or not at all.

After all, one excellent way for magicians to help magicians with some aspects of our art is face to face. I would not be surprised at all to learn that there are folks only miles apart who have no idea that they could easily get together if only they knew.
