Let's have a meet up! Where are you from?

I'd love to meet up with other Indie Hackers. Please list your location and let's see if we can make this happen.

  1. 10

    If you haven't yet, you should add your location to your user profile. That'll make it easier for me to build tools that facilitate meetups in the future! ✌️

    1. 4

      I just checked the profile. You have a field for city but not for country.

      Given that the US nicked (stole) just about every city and town name from the UK (and most other European countries as well, I suspect!), the city alone won't do it.

      Washington, for example, is actually a town in Lincolnshire. Apparently, it is also a somewhat unimportant administrative centre in the colonies as well .....

      London is, of course, the capital of the English-speaking world but also has numerous manifestations in the US. Pick an English city name and there will be one of the same name in the US!

      I also believe that Bethlehem is in Pennsylvania, which must come as something of a shock to the good citizens of Israel who have been convinced for millennia that the city is on their land!

      It would be nice to add a country field to the profile. It would be even more interesting to see a stats page where we can see by percentage from where we all hail.

      1. 2

        Second this. I'm not from Oxford, Alabama.

      2. 2

        There's a dropdown that prompts you for your country when you go to entry your location on your profile. Although I'm not displaying that information in all cases when viewing a profile, it's saved in the database. So I can easily change the information displayed in the future and it will apply retroactively. Good catch.

        1. 2

          Hmm, this is not working for me. I type the city name but don't see any dropdown. And if I then click on "Save", the city field is set to blank. I'm using Firefox on Linux, if that's helpful. Thanks!

          1. 1

            uBlock Origin breaks this.

            1. 1

              Thanks, that solved it!

            2. 1

              Interesting. Yeah, editing without uBlock fixed it.

          2. 1

            I see the same behaviour using Chrome on Windows 10.

            1. 1

              uBlock Origin breaks this.

              1. 1

                I saw the other comments about uBlock Origin earlier this morning. I had never heard of it before today though and don't have it installed on my system so there is something else going on here as well.

        2. 1

          I just tested that. I entered the town where I live and, because it did not know where the hell it was, the city field replaced my entry with Paphos which it helpfully, and correctly, knew was in Cyprus.

          Oddly enough, Paphos is not very far away from where my Dad lives so maybe your system knows more than I give it credit for!

    2. 1

      One weird thing about this is that uBlock Origin actually blocks the country list drop down, so if you have it you can't fill in your location.

      1. 1

        uBlock Origin, my mortal enemy, strikes again. You don't know how many hours I've spent tracking down "bugs" over the years that turned out to be uBlock mangling a website what was perfectly fine otherwise. Tried using it once myself, too, and it felt like it broke every third page on the internet.

        1. 1

          I think it has gotten a lot better now - I rarely have any problems with it. Maybe I'm just not visiting the same sites that you frequent ;).

  2. 5

    There seem to be quite a few of us on the forum from the EU - perhaps we could have a London/Berlin/Lisbon Meetup some time in the Spring?

    I'd be happy to co-organise and look for sponsors etc...

    1. 2

    Would love to meet other Indie Hackers in the area!

    1. 1

      In the U.S. now but studied abroad in Glasgow in college and loved it! I know that's not helpful here.

      Also I had a friend who was native to Glasgow once describe it as, "a wee bit stabby."

    2. 1
