I still need to figure out a way to add states/abbreviations - it's on my to-do list. I'll try and get this added in the next few days, as knowing the zones will be a real help!

I personally would like to see the state, and actual zone the poster lives in. If I were to only say I live in New York, how would you know what zone I am in when there are nine zones in NY.

That is actually an excellent idea. To bad they can't set it to automatically set the zone you are in for you cause some of us are not sure of our zone number.

Adding a zone field is the next thing on my list :). I'm just trying to make it nice and easy by clicking on a map and them it will add the right number to your profile - if that fails, people can use that link and fill it in manually :D.

I'm testing out the hardiness zone feature... if you visit your user profile page then you can enter it manually, or check out this page for more instructions:

Please let me know what you think, if it's not much use then I can easily remove it - I want to make sure that I only add what is necessary so we don't need to keep asking for lots of user info :).

I like it Ian! Hopefully more people will now enter what I consider this crucial info in order to answer many of their questions.

I've coded in a notice that should appear for members that haven't yet entered their hardiness zone, let's see how it goes :D.

Thanks for adding this feature. It's so nice to know where the person is, it's more like talking to a friend as opposed to talking to the ether world. I'd also like to second the opinion that in the US, a letter abbreviation is probably much more helpful than the flag - state flags are not something we really learn much about, other than our own state. But we did have to memorize all the abbreviations. Along with the capitols, but that information's long gone!!

Thanks again, for making this a better forum and a place where we can really get to know each other - for giving us a gardening "family"!
