I wonder is it possible to search the website looking for people in a certain location!

e.g. i was in toronto yesday and went onto tp.com to search for some 'toronto' tp'ers to try and meet up with them but seems to only work according to username/name!

I dont exactly know people's names/usernames (there are some on here dont get me wrong but not every tper from bout toronto has username "'toronto'gal" etc

Its a function i think would be worth adding (maybe im using the site wrong - show me how if so)

Hiya Edd!

If you go to the advanced member search form you can do a search by nationality. That only breaks it down on a country basis though which I don't think is exactly what you're after. Since we minimize the amount of information we ask from new users, it'a actually currently impossible to see exactly the city someone is from unless they have filled in their extended profile. It's definitely not a bad idea to add this as a search method really!! I'll look into it!

I was wondering if there is a way to search by nation (not where you met a person but, for example, if you wanted to search and see who is from the Netherlands? or who lives in Denmark? or how many members there are who live in Vietnam?

The same link above will let you do these searches. Or you can browse a list of countries users have visited by going to the REUNIONS tab at the top of this page. That's also where the link to the advanced search form can normally be found :)

Cheers,

You can't do a search for where people live, but you can search by nationality.
