Hi Eric, it looks like it is down for some reason.  I'll look into it, thanks for the heads up.

FYI Slack,

It very briefly loads the google map of North America, then goes to this message:

Oops! Something went wrong.
This page didn't load Google Maps correctly. See the JavaScript console for technical details.

It's actually been down for quite a while. I haven't investigated, thought I'd wait until someone noticed!

Likewise the "Weenies online" map that I built. I think it went down around the same time as the member map.

I'll do some investigating and report back.

To get technical for a minute, the Member Map error indicates the API key it's sending to google maps is invalid.

The Who's Online map error indicates it doesn't like us calling out to google using the insecure "http://" URL rather than the secure "https://" one.

I'll take a look at the code.

Eric, Google has changed the rules and started monetizing the google map api's in May. The Member Map gets so little use and is of such small value that were are going to take it down.  Thanks again for the heads up.
