Having addresses attached to shops seems like a really, really bad idea from a privacy standpoint. It should be City, State at the most.

We already have that. I’ve I’ve never posted “my workshop”, frankly, because it’s embarrassing. Ask Charlie. He’s been here.

What cound be more embarassing than this workshop?

And I will re phrase the original suggestion with some background info and examples

Anybody (a casual Visitor) can view any LJs workshop with having to log in they can also trace the workshop address to a street and actual number using the technology currently available all without any audit trail existing.
So my suggestion is only members who are logged on can view another LJs home page and workshop details. Then when they do a message similar to the linkedin application arrives alerting the LJ that somebody has viewed their details. That any clearer?


There are many LJs justifly proud of their workshops and have posted them, and in the process and also listed an inventory of their equipment either deliberately of by way of pictorially displaying them as well.

You do not need a physical address to find them with Google Earth either. For example a LJ was building a workshop and without being logged on I was able to find the location address and the building, I sent this picture to them and sure enough they conformed it was their place.

Most of the valuable stuff in my shop is too big to move without a moving truck and forklift and good luck to anyone trying to get that through the gate without attracting the attention of neighbors and police.

I haven’t posted shop pictures specifically but it’s visible in the background of various pictures I’ve posted here and on my website. But the open configuration isn’t very photogenic. It’s very clean and organized by most people’s standards but it’s organized for building stuff and not for appearance. All the duct drops, pallet racks and machinery make for cluttered pictures because the shop is one large, open room.

I don’t follow the importance of being “traceable”, the fact that someone looked at your shop on line doesn’t mean they broke in and took anything. That doesn’t mean I don’t like your idea, it might be a good thing for someone to have be a logged in member to view the pics shown here. I just can’ imagine it being useful if a crime is committed. I don’t get to worried about being exposed on the internet (hence no “screen name” for me) but I know most are not of the same frame of mind.

Hi Fred and Charles

Fred:- Dont get me wrong I am not saying anybody that looks at a LJ workshop is a crook otherwise I would have been arrested long ago, as I before commenting on poststhese days I i see a “new” LJ I check out any possible Gypsy aspects first.

Its a bit more like letting anybody wander around your shop uninvited, (that being in the 2D world aspect)

Charles:- Yep done that when it was first posted by Stumpy/James, and well done on the hosting aspects.
Glad to see you were able to do a scrap bin load out as well!.

I would love to attend a LJs gathering but havent had the opportunity do do so in Aus yet, let alone O/S anywhere. If I had enough loot it would be a line item on my bucket list I assure you, and I would try to bring a few other Aussies with me.

-- Regards Rob
