Default Putting location in Title of For Sale Threads?

I know the location of the seller needs to be inputted into the message of a for sale item, or in the sellers user information, but as a suggestion, can we also include a rule that it be in the Title also? This will help when looking through the marketplace to know exactly where a seller is located. I often see follow up posts to seller OP that state "where are you located?" or "Where is the ____ for sale/pickup?"

If the rules can be changed to include location in the title such as:

FS: M14 SOCOM w/parts-Fresno, CA

I think it would be much clearer where the item is located. There is a LOT of great items, parts and guns for sale in CG, but I know many are not able to travel to pickup face-to-face at greater distance.

Thanks

Fair enough. I was just trying to make it easier for buyers/sellers to make a Love Connection.

Carry on...

Yes, has been suggested many times with no results. It would be of great benefit to require a city/county/zipcode in the thread title, at least.

It would also be nice if Bay Area/Central Valley people stopped listing as
"Nor Cal".

it's one of those great ideas that people just don't understand.
listing your location in your post title is key to selling items.
maybe Calguns doesn't want too many rules or doesn't want to change the established rules. and I can understand that. I don't own the Calguns forum,so that's okay.
Though I do hope some people read this and get the hint.

I just rarely see a city on the title and have to then search through for items. At least once a day, I do a search for "Fresno" to see what comes up. That's about the easiest way to find any sales in my area....

If I see a location that is way broad, like Norcal/Socal/Cencal/Bay etc, I usually just blow it off....needs to be a bit more specific. And especially if I'd have to FFL, I want to make sure it's at a reasonable distance.
