    It’s a minor non-required piece of information but there are a few ways that listing it becomes useful:

    1) Knowing what continent people are on helps when suggesting brands, breeders and suppliers.

    2) Some items, Cypress Mulch for example, are far more available in some regions and not at all available in others. Listing your location can help us give suggestions that are more personally accurate for you.

    3) For those in a place where English is not their first language, listing your country will help us to realize English is not your first language. Personally, I choose to avoid slang terms and try to use better grammar and punctuation when writing to someone whose first language is not English.

    4) Many of us ask about or talk about keeping or taking our Tegus outside. The best answer to the question will obviously vary from location to location, and the experience behind the responder will also vary based on location.

    5) Lastly and possibly most importantly, it’s nice to know who lives near you. Anthony came to meet my Tegu before confirming his decision to buy one himself. Then after he bought his I got to visit him and again see the adorable little green head. Later we split an order of frozen food to save shipping costs.

    Location is not a mandatory field and I agree that it should be listed on a voluntary basis only. Also keep in mind it only needs to be as detailed as you choose. I hope each of you take a moment to consider the pros and cons to listing your location and then update it as you see fit.

    Thanks for listening to / reading my little rant!

    When Bobby ran the site our old avatars showed our location "if" you had given your location, which I had. Didn't realize it didn't switch over albeit I did as many others had to re-register. Thanks to this thread and the OP for mentioning this.

    I believe it is invaluable on just about any kind of forum to have others know your location in order that any questions you may have about your area can be answered based on the location you have provided.
