just became aware and got my pin in.  I think I got it pretty much in my driveway - amazing. 

What's up with Indiana - is there a satellite blackout there?

No problem at all on Macs. Either Safari or Firefox. I got the pin right on my front deck.

BTW Slack, now that I'm back home using Fiefox on my desktop, those dropout issues seem to have gone away. Maybe the switch to Joomla did it. Left column centering issue (in Safari) gone too.

All for now.

Great John.

Well that is the way to go then --- maybe it was Frappr that was not ready for Macs.

Not sure this is directly related to this feature, but I got the attached error when modifying my profile.  I thought that maybe the map feature didn't like my address & cleared it out...  still get the same message, in both IE (6.0, I think) and Firefox 1.5.0.1.

Hmm. I beg to differ. Being stuck in a timewarp - as I am - I'm still using Mac OS9 and I can't even get to see the map, let alone stick a pin in it. But I'm not that bothered since I do identify my location in my profile. :)

I'm certainly not running the most recent XP service pack, so the problem could be there.  I'll try flushing the cache...

Edit:  clearing the cache changes nothing...  definitely looks like it's related to my OS version.

Hello!
It just occurred to me that the Member map showed my old location out in Minnesota so I thought now would be a good time to update things, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to change map locations. I don't see any editing options on the map page. I did try clicking on the phrase "Click here to place your pin if you have not already" but that only led me to my forum profile info, still with no option for editing my map location. Any suggestions from the Map Lords?

Hi Doc, it looks like a component of the member map is not working -- clicking on the edit is supposed to take you to your profile where you could edit/delete you pin - but it is not displaying the map in the profile.  I'll look into it when I get some time.

Thanks,
slack

I ran into the same problem this morning. Wasted a few minutes going backwards & forwards trying to pinpoint where I was going wrong.
Will it get fixed?

Old author gave it up -- but new author has taken it over, so it looks like the map may be supported again.  I've installed the new version, looks like it works -- but give it a try.

~~~~ time passes ~~~~

The member map is working pretty well these days, and WC.com has become more international, click to see the wwww: http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?action=googlemap

But it would be great if more of you would stick your pins. Fewer than 10% have done so. It's easy:

You have to be logged in to do this. Click the top menu button 'Profile'. In the profile page's side menu 'Modify Profile' click 'Forum Profile'. Follow the directions from there.

You don't have to land the pin right on your residence, just the general vicinity would be excellent for getting a feel for where everyone is at.

Kudos to Slack for persevering with it, and duh! to me, since I thought it was a dumb idea at the outset but now think it's a really useful tool for understanding the weenie demographic.

OK as of right now there are 195 pins...
