Ok, so here is a new idea....It's about out there though. However, I think it might make it more friendly for commuters/college students.

How about a "Secondary Location". Some people live in two places, for example, I just convinced Ruaalien2 to join. She goes to school in Providence RI but lives/spends time in Brooklyn, NY

It might be nifty to have a Secondary/School address so people in both locations can find you. It could also be useful for teen users who have divorced parents and switch households often.

It might be a bit out of the box, but I think it's pretty original. I've never seen another site to do it.

P.S. I often have ideas that are stupid or difficult to implement. I just always think of cool things so I post em! I don't actually expect you to implement any of them ^_^.

I second that thought.

Oh, just to clarify, the secondary location would include a tag on the map as well ^_^.

I think that's a really good idea.

Hm, yeah, I can see the use of it. Though... a lot of the code right now assumes that gamers have exactly one or exactly zero locations. Changing that wouldn't be trivial. I'm going to have to ponder this one a little.

I'll also have to think a little about user interface -- the gamer profiles are already pretty busy, I worry that this would push them over into 'confusing'.

OK. So I've put it on the todo list, but it's down a ways because I need to figure out how to make it work.
