    Is there a way for members of the board to find other members that live in the same geographic area for meetups, etc?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    If you use one of the Old Style themes a Location shows up under the avatar.

    New default profile shows it also. Is there a way to search across those location fields? Otherwise it would require looking at every profile. It would definitely be an opt-in thing.

    No, the only way is to start a thread specific to your area. For example, there is an LA thread I see getting bumped from time to time.

    Is there a most appropriate forum for such threads?

    Awesome, thanks. Next time I'll look around more carefully.
