I suggest that the location field be mandatory, and if a person does not want to disclose where they're located they could be very general (Asia, USA, EU etc.) or add a bogus place, but leaving it mandatory will result in more folks providing this detail.

To us the location has a bearing on the advice offered.

Making mandatory those spaces is Really helpful, because we are in a Worldwide forum, and Kias sold with LADM (Latin American Domestic Market) Specs, varies from USDM Specs, EUDM Specs, AUDM Specs... So, the same car, came with Different Engines / Options for Different Markets.

Also, not all the Forum members could find easily the way to "Update" their public profile, after the sign up; here's an example:

So, Mandatory spaces are the way to go, to prevent this site from becoming a Mess.

Kind Regards.

Hi,

I went ahead and made the location field mandatory as you requested.

OK, I gave it a try, .......and ran into a problem.

The initial registration page does not have text boxes for Location and Vehicle, and when you hit the "Register" button is presents the following error:

The following errors occurred during your registration

A required field called Location is missing or has an invalid value.
A required field called Vehicle(s) That You Own is missing or has an invalid value.

So this was a misunderstanding. I've turned OFF the requirements for those fields as it causes all new registrants to get the error you posted Ron. This is what they are trying to correct but still haven't

Thanks for letting me know

Kyle

Thanks for that confirmation Kyle.

I trust that you'll be leaning on the IT team to correct this - would be nice if they could give a forecast for implementation.

That means "Back to Square One" isn't it?
