Default Map

Is there any chance of having a map, where users can pin their location (if they want)? I've seen it done on another board, altho no idea how it's actually done..

I am pretty sure that we had this here once!

Unfortunately our head admin isn't around at the minute but I may be able to ask him in the future

We definitely did have one, it'll be out of date mind you.

Create a new one ... someone!

^ I swear we had one here. I have definitely seen one somewhere. I can't remember exactly how it worked but I'm should you could click on the pins and see the general area a member lived in.

^ Yeah, someone had posted a thread with a link that took you to a map of the UK - i think it was a fixed map, i don't think you could zoom in/out, and you just placed a pin of where you were located, and it remained there for others to view. It was quite populated i remember.

Does it save multiple locations from different users? That's the key function

^ yep!

The person who creates the map has a link that they can share. They also set a password. Then anyone can add a pin to that map, using the password.

Itís a bit specific though. I wouldnít want everyone who accessed this site knowing exactly where I live. I guess itís okay if you live in a city or somewhere big where youíre anonymous.

ha good plan! I worry that I’d be easily hunted down and pelted with mushrooms if I shared my exact location.


This might work too, but I can’t see it because it’s flash and my phone doesn’t support it.

Another way would be for all those who are interested to say so and then have a picture of the Uk. Then people can add a star to the map and then pass the image around by PM or taking it in turns from a thread. [A bit faffy]

Or if people want it a bit more anonymous then there could be a thread with a poll of cities or counties and someone could put the numbers on a pin on the map.

Haha, well of course, mushrooms being the obvious choice!

That site didn't seem to work for me, my computer is playing up a bit :/

Though a fine idea, it's a bit faffy and i can't see it getting very far!
