The "location" field is back in member profiles. However to fix it the old field was removed and a new field was added which means that if you previously listed your location you have to re-enter it. To do that go to your name at the top right of the screen. Click on the drop down arrow next to your name and select "My Profile". On the upper right side of your profile screen click on "Edit My Profile" Scroll down. The location field is just below gender.

Am I the only one that sees TWO "Gender" fields in my profile?

You are not alone. I've got two 'gender' fields as well as two fields to list 'interests'.

I was hoping it would show up in posts with group, no. of posts, etc. Any chance of that coming back? And, thanks for all of the work that you continue to do.

I did notice that gender showed up earlier this afternoon, but now that is gone.

Another thank you. I am now back where I belong, no longer wandering aimlessly not knowing where I am...

I think, however, you need some more choices for the Gender field.
Along with Male, Female and Not Telling we need --

Thank you, thank you. Now, if you could only get everyone to fill in this field in their profile - then we'd be all set.

Just for those of you who didn't, or don't know: the fields that are now visible, are those we decided on a long time ago, in a long discussion about pros and cons of these fields. Gender was deliberately struck from the list, as were a bunch of others.

For people not wanting to show their location, as this clearly is an optional field, the only thing they have to do is leave it empty or blank it out.
