Someone needs to tell them that.

https://www.aruba.com/us/our-island/island-facts/where-is-aruba#

Geographically it is located in the South American continent but politically
it is part of the North American continent

I guess because of its historical connection to the Dutch Antilles?

Anyway, similarly Greenland is geographically part of North America but politically
part of Europe.

The great Denmark owns that one
So technically Canada in next door with Denmark

Hmm, still based on colour you can see, so it’s on the colour rainbow thing
  — States of matter, if ever you thought there’s only 3 (or 4) of them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_states_of_matter

I’m talking about something that is totally unrelated to any of the known states,
eg. unable to be grouped with the general “solid” state.

Really, that is incredible! So if the brain has a mindblock it doesn’t know it
because it’s been plugged?

At least I know there are subjects I really don't understand - I mean, not
at all.
But maybe I'm lucky.

no that isn't an option. the vast majority of bricklink stores do not have
physical locations that people can visit and then bricklink letting people know
where they can buy lego in person would cut bricklink out of their fees which
wouldn't work for bricklink.

Boo. I only ask because I know of several users near me with a BL presence as
well as a physical store that has other product not listed on BL.

  
  Second: Aruba was missing for me when I looked for stores yesterday (because
there are none), but it's also listed under North America on the user location
page. That should be South America along with the rest of the ABC's if it
matters.

Lastly; the language on the Me page for one of the users didn't seem Dutch

I read this like 10 times and ill be honest I haven't the slightest idea
what you're trying to say

No worries, pictures help. First image was the results when you look for sellers;
then I found BL users in the general "all members" tab. But, all of
the users were 0 feedback users which piqued my curiosity. So I clicked on the
"me" for user phwinlink and noticed the Philappines phone number and
all of the betting website external links.

Lastly; the language on the Me page for one of the users didn't seem Dutch
to me so I sniffed around a little, looked at the country code and clicked on
one or two of their links... Is what they're doing allowable?

I read this like 10 times and ill be honest I haven't the slightest idea
what you're trying to say

No worries, pictures help. First image was the results when you look for sellers;
then I found BL users in the general "all members" tab. But, all of
the users were 0 feedback users which piqued my curiosity. So I clicked on the
"me" for user phwinlink and noticed the Philappines phone number and
all of the betting website external links.

report the user and move on

  First: I vacation a lot and would like to poke my head in to other resellers
stores to see if they have anything interesting I can bring back to the US.
Is there some functionality I'm missing that displays if someone has a physical
open-to-the-public location? If not, could functionality be added to allow people
to opt in to that?

no that isn't an option. the vast majority of bricklink stores do not have
physical locations that people can visit and then bricklink letting people know
where they can buy lego in person would cut bricklink out of their fees which
wouldn't work for bricklink.

Boo. I only ask because I know of several users near me with a BL presence as
well as a physical store that has other product not listed on BL.

  
  Second: Aruba was missing for me when I looked for stores yesterday (because
there are none), but it's also listed under North America on the user location
page. That should be South America along with the rest of the ABC's if it
matters.

It is a common misconception that Canada, the US, and Mexico are the only three
countries in North America. In fact, this is not true: there are 23 independent
nations in North America.



23 countries make up North America. They are:

Antigua and Barbuda
Bahamas
Barbados
Belize
Canada
Costa Rica
Cuba
Dominica
Dominican Republic
El Salvador
Grenada
Guatemala
Haiti
Honduras
Jamaica
Mexico
Nicaragua
Panama
Saint Kitts and Nevis
Saint Lucia
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Trinidad and Tobago
United States of America
