There seems to be a bit of low-level confusion with questions about location-specific information. Specifically, most askers omit it. Whilst for some things it will be irrelevant or only vaguely relevant, for many things it is germane to the question. Obvious examples would be questions about building regulations or electrical work, but it's important even on questions where the climate comes into play, such as where the ground freezes regularly.
Could we add a FAQ item to make it extremely obvious to all that this forum is read by people all over the world, not just in their state or country?
