How to find a member in a particular city? Durham NC

Post by cn90 » Tue Jan 08, 2019 10:50 pm

I am just curious...

Let's say I want to look up members in let's say Durham NC, how do I do that?

I have looked through the forum but cannot find exact place to look.
The "users" place has a whole bunch of usernames but you have to individually click each and every username (some 7000 in the USA alone) to see the city/state.

I just wonder if there is a search engine to simply search for let's say users/members in only Durham NC.

It's terribly low tech but I think I would look for one of the heavy posters in the area of interest and then PM then

Anthropology works better than technology, sometimes.

I don't think search function picks up location data

There is also a ' Help in your area ' Forum

Abscate isn't there a area where you can post for help available in your area. Possibly the OP could advertise in that section? June

I would send PM to abscate and ask him, especially since you are talking east coast.

When I sent an S70 to my mother in law, I contacted one of the active posters from her metro area about possibility of helping her out.

I think we may have taken that down on last forum upgrade - there used to be one, but I can't find it now.

Daughter is going to college in Durham, NC, thus this question for the 2004 V70 with 110K.

I guess I would do preventive maintenance, anything that can potentially goes wrong in the next 2-4 years should be replaced upfront to avoid shop charge, which can go up very quickly. If I spend $300-$400 now, it is still cheaper than shop charges down the road.

OTOH, there is a good Swedish shop in Durham just in case (excellent yelp reviews).

Bmwdub might be able to help find a few Tar Heel connections

Rolled into General chat as part of unused subforum consolidation. It was hardly ever used.
