City keeps changing

Not a big deal however have noticed that no matter how often I set city [next to the big RedFlagDeals logo] it keeps changing to random cities as view different threads.

On a positive, never knew about any of these cities prior so good learning... not sure how this reflects on Canadian education :)

While I'm glad to hear you're being educated on Canadian geography, this definitely isn't supposed to be happening. Let me check into this for you. Did it just recently start happening or has it always been this way for you?

LOL, I've noticed this going on for well over a year. Not just now... ignored it due to poor coding.

When was the most recent time it changed from the location you manually set it to? Are you using a VPN by any chance?

If you manually set your location does it still change to the wrong city afterwards?

Nothing has recently changed with our geolocation system but we're now looking into making it not auto update after being manually set by the user.

Mine changes regularly. I change it back often. This has been ongoing for as long as I can remember.

Edit, today my city location was Tullamore ON? Changed it back and cannot wait to see here I am next :)

Edit, Today my location is 100 Mile House BC.Changed it back again but tomorrow, I am sure I will be elsewhere again.
