    I don't get why people don't put their location in the thread title.

    The last thing I want to do (and I'm sure lots of other people) is browse through a bunch of for sale DB's. It seems pretty obvious to put your location in the title , especially for instruments under 2K.

    If you live in a metro area searching by city isn't very practical.
    I could search for;
    San Francisco
    San Jose
    Oakland
    Bay Area
    Northern Ca
    Northern California
    etc....

    I would think if you were serious about selling you would put your city or region in the post title but I suppose some folks don't think about it.
    That's why it should be a rule.
    It doesn't cause any harm and I'm sure more people would check the classifieds.

    In the long run it would help everybody sell their stuff:D

    I agree, why people don't list their location in their profile is beyond me.

    Maybe a field can be added. Not sure if that is doable but I see cabs listed for local pu only and the location is cut off of the title....

    Maybe it's just that I use an app most of the time?
