    In the profile page, you can set your 'location'
    but it shows up as 'from' on the rest of the forum.

    Maybe its because im not nativly english, but i feel like 'from' and 'location' mean two separate things.
    From is where you are from (ie, French for me).
    Location is where you are currently living (Newcastle).

    Im guessing the actuall question asked is where you are from, not where you currently live...
    This should probably be made more clear when editing a profile.

    There certainly is a distinction. As far as the forum goes, it's safe it assume it's where they currently are located, but could definitely use a tweak in wording. Perhaps bring it up in the Forum Issues thread? Maybe not, since it's not an "issue" but more of a typo-esq problem.

    I'm more concerned with how typing in something like "Location: My personal hell" shows up at "From: My personal hell" everywhere. My life isn't that bad. x3
    But on a serious note, it kinda messes up any sort of non-serious location you'd type in.

    pfffff... You guys love to nit pick! However, I'll look into it... Shouldn't be too difficult to sort out. :)

    I forgot to mention that I sorted this issue, and it's now consistent across the forums.
