Sorry about that Annie - do you have any information on who it is? I might just have missed him when going through the list brought up by searching under Wales.

I'll confess - I cheated. I don't speak Welsh either, though I'm getting better at reading notices, road signs menus and the like now after coming to Wales on holiday every year for a while now. I am hopeless at pronouncing Welsh. I was looking for something else on Google and came across this: http://croesoproject.org/

You should have been on it; now you are the 175th Brit on the list. Since the weather's been so awful here, I've been going through the list of hits from searching under "England" (which wouldn't have found you) but you have posted recently and I should have picked it up from that.

No sinister motive here, just inefficiency on my part.

When I've been through all 228 hits I'll post a list for "England".

Sorry, I checked his name then didn't include it! It's Andrew Davies, and his profile says he's from Wales, and could be the same as Andy Davies, also from Wales and with a phone number (from his website) that suggests he is from the same area. No posts from the latter member for a while.

I've put Andrew on now (he's been on DVinfo today); do you think I should add Andy as well?

List for England

Same story as for the Welsh and Scottish lists: this is a result of a search of the members list for "England". I've removed those those whose "last activity" was several years ago though some may still be browsing without logging in.

Er, Hi Colin...........

Not to put a downer on your Hurculean efforts (as they truly are, I'm absolutely stunned by your thoroughness) but is there something a tad anal about this, considering CH is introduceing some sort of (as yet, revealed but unexplained) regional codes?


Maybe this is the time to ask the big Q of CH?

How's they gonna work and what will you be able to do?

One important thing I would suggest to anyone on your amazing list:

Having been a UK resident for many (many) years, "South East" is not a proper area code for posters.

Either is "England"

Either is "UK"

Either is "NW England" (or any other of the possibilities)

Either is "London"

Either is "County" (take your pick)

Either is "IoM"

In short, guys and guyesses, I'm not asking for street names and numbers, but you all know how it works there, a county (without the "R") can be a darn big place.

London is gigantic.

The "South East" is bloody humungous. (and so are any of the other variants).

So, hit that "Contact Us" button at the bottom of your screen and update your address details.

The more people know about other people (within reason) the better, and when it comes to locations in the UK, invaluable.

Colin, keep up the good work, but do ask CH what gives with the regional codes yourself.


CS

Hi Chris,

Just one comment. I'm always a bit careful of giving too much location information away, especially when I list all my expensive gear in my profile. Anyone, (ANYONE!!!) can access this information and then a quick web search of the UK electoral role and your address and sometimes even telephone number are in their dirty thieving hands. I'm ex-directory but I know it's still possible. Then it's just a quick call to ensure no one's in, a broken window and the stuff is theirs. That's why I just list "Cambridgeshire" now (but was slightly concerned to see my location a bit more specific on a version of this list a few days ago). Once I posted my location, then had second thoughts but then I could not edit that post to remove that information so it's eventually appeared on Colin's otherwise excellent list. Until this is remedied I've cleared my profile.

And to the thieves. I do have a fully monitored, very good house alarm, good watchful neighbours and live close to the local Police station....my huge dog is also an asset. And if you get past that lot there will be another unpleasant surprise awaiting you that will remain secret.

One of my video buddies found me by personal message on this site. After a bit of e-mail I satisfied myself he's OK...... then over many, many pints in the pub later (not all on the same night but over many many nights!) we talked endlessly about our video interests/stuff we both want to do in the future .....and now we are working together on some of this stuff and having great fun!

So bottom line is, in the spirit if this thread, why not try and meet up with someone in your own area and see if it works for you? We find that 2 people, and sometimes there's 3 of us - even better, bounce shot and editing ideas off each other raising the quality of our work to new heights. It also helps to have someone to lug the gear round with you/watch the camera while you go get a sandwich/coffee/go have a slash (that's slang for going to the restroom by the way) etc. too! And multi-cam shoots give you so much more creative power in editing.

Andy,
I'm so sorry. As soon as I saw this post I edited the list I posted and the Excel attachment to remove the extra detail. I'm inclined to agree with your views and I should have thought this one out a bit better. I hope there's no harm done.

Personally, I don't have any problem with giving my place as a county, but I do think members should have the right to choose whether they give a county or a country as their location.

Likewise there is no obligation to list the equipment you use, but it is still helpful for people to see what you are using when posting on a forum that is not specifically for that equipment eg UWOL, or weddings etc.

BTW I'm curious to see that I am listed under England as well!!

Tough question you got going here, had me thinking to pull myself out of DV info.net
Pretty cool though discussing, and searching details of the business with all types who know the goods.
I need the info now. Books are good but this is evolving, every day, every minute.
Security is key. Locks, monitors, insurance, all necessary.
Dogs, neighbors, spent shotgun shells from target practice at the doorstep, good deterence.
I have some ancestors from Scotland and the Island of Mull so greetings!

"Spent shotgun shells from target practice at the doorstep"......Now, Bill, that would get me locked up in no time in the UK!!!

Colin, thanks for updating your lists - and no harm done - but you see the issue now.

I think county (or big city name) is as close as one would want to go....but as Annie said it's really up to the individual member how they want it. And, BTW Annie, Pembrokeshire is about as near to England as one can get in Wales culturally, but not geographically! Then there are all the legal implications we have over this list and it's management, storage, distribution, deletion (due to our Data Protection Act). You don't want someone trying to sue you when all you were trying to do was facilitate interaction amongst us (mostly non-thieving) Brits!

Shame but that's the way it is - especially since the crime/burgulary rate will climb steeply now we're heading for a deep recession so let's not make it too easy for the ^&%$$£"&^.

And then you become a major player at 200 posts - as I happened to me last night.

Andy
Yes, Little England beyond Wales where the main excuse I have for not learning Welsh is that hardly anyone here knows speaks it, so it would be hard to practise.
