Would it be possible to add the members location to the sort categories ?

When you 'View the memberlist', you have options to sort (by clicking on the heading) by:
Username, Position, Date Registered, Number of Posts.

Also whether the user has provided email, a website, ICQ, AIM, YIM, and MSN messaging options.

I was hoping you could pull the State field from the location entries, and add that as a sort option.

Yeah, I found those. But a lot of new members don't find the chapters topix right away.

Regardless, to search by state would be a bit limited since many members do not put a location in their profile or if they do, they frequently do not follow a searchable format.  It would have been possible if a drop down menu or other forced format that kept all the responses in the same configuration, like a postal address, had been implemented in the beginning, but now it is a bit too late.  Just looking at the posts here in this thread shows that you have a non standard location as well as Dodgeboys so that would throw off any software that would be looking for a simple city and state.  And again, many people do not wish to add their location, which would limit the system more.
