Where are you from? Let us know and have the chance to win 10 piggies!

75

You always wanted to contact a Lomographer in Portugal? Meet someone while on vacation in Buenos Aires? Wondered if there are other people from your hometown active on this site? With our new Homes feature these questions might be answered…

Here you see some lovely people from Hong Kong and Austria

Now you can browse users by countries or cities – right now these lists are a bit empty (well, actually quite empty) because to protect your privacy you need to activate what others can see about you. To do so simply visit the settings page, use the checkboxes to make your country and city public in your home (and maybe your age and sex while you are at it).

Why should you be doing this?

Well, first to let others know where you are from. Second to win some piggies. At the beginning of next week we will pick 20 lucky users (10 from each category – country and city) at random to be given 10 piggies! Please note that our caches might need some time (at most some minutes) to update.

Have fun and let us know what you think about this feature – and also post the link to your country and city in the comments once you are featured!

    I like this new feature. It's a good way to know people from your own country and find some help when travelling

    Hey, how do I look for cities?? I just see "most popular" ones...
    And I can't see myself in Spain even though I saved my data two hours ago, but I suppose it's because all the people registering and saving at the same time - don't panic!!

    A very good feature! "City" is probably a bit misleading as not everyone lives in a city.
    And ... now I only have one more wish about another feature which should be introduced: the possibility to assign a date to a photo in the lab.
