It's one of those things I think. You'd expect the site to have lots of people from Brimingham, but as far as I can remember there are very few. I think I'm the only member who regularly posts from Cardiff, for example.
Are you a member of Facebook or something like that? You might see if there are any Pratchett fans on there in your area. Not that I recommend Facebook. I left it after it got too silly.
Maybe you need to get to know the people here and let us get to know you. That's how online friendships usually get going. And distance needn't be a problem. I met my wife on a Pratchett site and she lives in Tucson Arizona. I travel there as often as I can.
