i've seen them change it on here before because they were trashing each other about it, so i know it's possible.

I think if you register you can put your city name on but if you don't register it just goes to where your ISP is routing you from.

Thanks for trying to help, but i still just don't get it. Are you the same JUST SAYIN from earlier? Because it says 2 different cities for you if you are the same person, and you were not using a registered user name either time you posted. And if you're different people (or on a different computer) then never mind, my bad.

I don't use a registered name so different cities appear under my name depending on where my ISP signal is routed. I've even had my city show up in Texas and I don't live there. The Danville, KY Jst Sayin in this thread is not me, however.

People that have registered names have a different colored box where their name appears. On my computer they appear in yellow. Everyone else is blue-gray.

unplug your gateway for a few hours and plug it back then there's a good change your city will come up different.

The power or just the internet?

The power -- it has to reset itself.

you really can't control it without purchasing special software. your internet provider changes servers as it needs, sortof like a cell phone uses different towers. you can get programs that hide it and will allow you to edit it, but it's a heavy investment for just a forum. i only know of one person on topix who actually has the software, everyone else's just bounces from town to town. there are also some people whose locations show up in grey writing (as opposed to blue) and they too have some other sort of software (either purchased or standard on their computers) that affects their location, not sure about those guys, but their software is not nearly as advanced as the kind that will let you edit it.
just remember, it's not YOUR location, it's your COMPUTER'S internet location in a network of servers that's showing up.
