would it be possible on the search option to search for more than 1 location

example: i live 30 mins of both durham and newcastle so instead of having to search durham and the having to search tyne and wear would it be possible to search both

and vice versa on the casting instead of just search north east (which covers hundreds of miles) could we have a function to search smaller areas

Or even better - a distance feature linked to post codes?

would be even better. much more affective and would mean you can search just the area you can travel within. emoticon

As long as it's a realistic distance travelled by road and not as used by Ebay.
Ebay will give you an estimate based on line of sight and doesn't take into account that someone in Swansea for instance, has to travel to Weston Super Mare via the Bristol area.emoticon

I asked for similar a while ago in terms of North east casting. Its just way too big to class the whole of the North as North East.

Even as the crow flies, a mileage option seems a great idea. I know I use it on other sites with success.

We have something like this in development but the distances will be as the crow flies and not by road. We hope to have it online soon although it will need people to update their location for it to be effective

Updated (i.e. more detailed locations would be extremely desirable! Locations such as "Staffordshire" are not particularly helpful.

It would be excellent if it were mandatory to enter a town. People who had a good reason not to put it could always enter one that is in the same area at least.

That would be an excellent addition if it's a post code search...  Is it a post code search?

If not (and hating to bring up the opposition but...) MM goes one further than just using counties and allows you to select cities and in some cases towns (may add to the search each time somebody lists themselves as being in a new town/city, I don't know) which is excellent for people like me not being very close to Northampton, Cambridge or Lincoln but being on the borders of all 3 and fairly close to many of the outskirt market towns etc means it's invaluable not just to look for but also to be found by people.

Edit - But then, you already knew all of that, obviously.... cheekyhaha

It's not a postcode search. You would enter in your town and then the distance is calculated using the latitude and longitude of that town
