dudesnude location search FAQ

the following page explains how to use the location search feature on the quick search and power search pages.

the location search feature needs to know a search starting point, and a maximum distance from that point that you'd like to see guys from, both of these are entered on the search page.

how do i search for nearby guys?
under "dude location" on the search page, click the HOME link (or GPS) link if logging in mobile) to have your current location loaded into the search form. the system will choose a default maximum search distance from that point of 30Km/19miles, if this is too far (or not far enough) then change the value in the "max. distance" box just below the location field, and then click "Search!". if you live near your countries border and only want guys from your country, tick the "from this country only" box. if you haven't set a profile location you'll need to choose a location first as described in the following examples. note: the 'nearby' link on the main linkbar gives rapid access to all nearby guys without having to use the search form.


how do i reset the search location to search for guys around the world?
click the RESET link under "dude location".


how do i search for guys in a certain city? (example: new york)
1/ click CHOOSE under the location box, a window with a map will open
2/ type new york in the box above the map
3/ the system finds NYC and shows it just below the box
4/ click on it, the map re-draws with the pointer in the center of NYC
5/ if you'd like to center the seach outside the city centre, click on the map to move the pointer to the required location
6/ if required, adjust the maximum search disance using the up/down arrows in the bottom right corner until the area you wish to search is enclosed with a red rectangle on the map. in the example below, brooklyn is enclosed and manhattan is excluded (note: you may need to zoom out before the red rectangle is visible)
7/ click "Select this location" when done to have the search location and search distance values you've chosen loaded into the search form.





note: for privacy reasons, the edges of the search area as displayed on the map are only approximate, your search may include or exclude members who are close to the displayed search area edge regardless of which side of the edge their true location is.

if your profile location is set to brooklyn, you can skip stages 1-7 just by clicking the HOME or GPS link and entering an appropriate max. distance on the search form.

how do i search for all guys in a certain country? (example: france)
1/ click CHOOSE under the location box, a window with a map will open
2/ type france in the box above the map
3/ the system finds france and shows it just below the box
4/ click on it, the map re-draws with the pointer in the center of france
5/ click "choose this location"
6/ on the search page, change "max. distance" to 0 and select "from this country only" and click search

if you already have your profile or GPS location set to somewhere in france, you can skip stages 1-5 just by clicking the HOME or GPS link.


how do i search for all guys in a certain state?
repeat the city example above, instead entering the name of the state you want to search, and adjust the pointer location and search distance in order to enclose the state you wish to search with the red search area rectangle.


notes:
* use search distance in combination with "from this country only" if you want to search for members in a city very close to a national border and don't want to see guys from the other side of the border.
* with a locaton set, you must select a search distance or tick the "from this country only" box, otherwise the search will return members from around the world.
