I was looking over the user profiles and realized that there should be a separate field for meets attended.

If we can list a bio, gear, hobbies, interests, etc., we should also have a dedicated field to list all of the meets we've been to.

Attending meets is probably the best thing about Head-Fi, so we should be able to put up our own "brag lists" of meets attended and let others see what we've been to. I think it's just as important as what gear we have.

I'd love to hear what anyone else thinks about this - fee free to comment and make suggestions.

Not a bad idea. It at least gives some credibility to people who havent owned a product but have heard it at meets and a lot of different equipment. Also people who go to meets tend to have a better view of equipment since they havent been stuck only having heard a couple of systems that they own. They tend to not be as fanboyish being able to recomend a wider selection of equipment.

The next frontier in meets (or travel otherwise) for me will be the unexplored south (probably Atlanta in Georgia), Virginia/DC, somewhere in the Midwest, the Pacific Northwest, and definitely NYC again. NYC is the best city on the planet and I go there at least once every year whether there's a coinciding meet or not!

This is an excellent suggestion I reckon.  There should definitely be a community aspect to people's profiles.

Good Call! A common thread for sense of community. Been trying to attend meets the last few years to no avail (SoCal/NorCal) due to important obligations. I will soon be in attendance. How do I know this? Did you see Asr's massive, impressive compilation?! motivation if I ever saw it!
 
Your idea is already effective at work...
