Member Map
« on: June 19, 2006, 09:02:10 am »
I just wanted to point out to you guys one of the features we have on these forums, the Member Map

We had one of these on the old forums a while before they closed, and now we have it again.  Please feel free to contribute and post your location.  You can get to the member map by clicking that link in this post, or clicking the Map tab/button at the top of the forums

Yes, go argentine!


I noticed that some dumbasses that try to be funny by entering "Afghanistan" don't even know where it lies, and don't even bother to look it up on a map, in stead, they place their pin in places like Somalia. You idiots fail X 2.

Wherever I place my pin in Melbourne, it ends up covering/being covered by other pins in Melbourne...

Maybe I'll stick my pin out to sea a bit if it happens again.
EDIT: And whats with the different colours on the pins?

Is there a way to place two pins?  I'm constantly shuffling between San Diego and Merced...

I'm more worried about the guy whose flag is Afghanistan, yet whose location is "Barcelona, Andorra". And the guy who thought Israel was in Italy. And the Togo in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Woo, look at me in the middle of Nowhere, PA.

Oh well, that'll make it easy to stalk Field Marshal with my 20-year-old WEIRDness. ;)

was that a joke?  because you're a fag.  green = people who have not selected their gender.

That's just you, dude.  Seems your browser didn't place them pins correctly.

* JayBee bows head in shame  :-[

I found it rather strange at first too, but I checked so many that it seemed correct  ::)

no, this is what zooming in is for.  maybe I'll make them smaller later, but not yet.  there aren't enough to warrant a change in size yet

But, there isn't actually a way to zoom in yet is there?

Unless I'm missing something.

Just select a country or area in the drop down list.

That's why you zoom in first, then place your pin.

That way it's more accurate.
