Is there some way instead of looking for a members name you can just look for the city and state????

Bertie, go to the top of this page, find "Community" and use the drop down menu to get to "Member Directory".  Put in the city and state in the search boxes, exactly how PBS lists it and click search.  For example, I live in Prairie Village, KS, but PBS has it listed as Prairie Vlg, KS.  If I type in the complete city name, nothing comes up. But if I type it in the way PBS lists it (Prairie Vlg), then those members with profiles will come up.  Members without profiles will not come up in the search.   Also, members can choose not to make their profiles public and those members won't come up either.

Yes.  In the Member Directory there is a City and State search.  But I think only members with profiles are in the directory.  And folks who keep their city on private are not listed by city.

Just be careful -- you might find your own neighbors in that search :::glances at Hunter:::  devil

And if you aren't careful, some PBS members have been known to stalk others....:::glances at Catt:::   cool
