Gerry, yup -- it is a bit frustrating.  I've still got my eye out for a better Map -- there is a fellow working on a similar google map, but integrted with the forum - whcih would give me better control (eg no ads).

OK Charlie - deleted them.

Cheers,
slack

Ok Folks,

Here is another Member Map for you to try.  This one is an early Beta and they plan on adding Avatars (pictures) at some point in time, plus other stuff.  The advantages are: 1) it is an intergrated with our forum (like the old Member Map) as opposed to being an outside third party application like Frappr.  2) You place a pin by pointing and clicking (like the old map), so we would not have to wait for Frappr to update their city database 3) Does not include Frappr Ads (although Google may stick some ads in there at some point).  Anyway, give it a try, see what you think, make a recommendation on what direction/which map you think we ought to use. (Some folks have already found it  ;) )

To place your Pin:  View/Edit Profile->Forum Profile Information  and then scroll to the bottom of the page where you'll find the map.

To view the Map (I have not set up any Menu Links yet):

Mr Dodson:

I tried all this. Though a blank space appears, no map comes up.

So far I like the Frapper one better.

Blank screen to place your Pin?  or to view the Map?  Browser?

In light of these developments -- I can understand your preference.  :P

Both. A blank harvest gold square comes up (in both cases), but no map appears.

I'm using Internet Explorer.

Working fine for me Slack - IE Version 6.0.2800 using Win-XP SP1 on 1Mb broadband - map comes up almost instantly.

Only thing is that the selection map in the Forum Profile area will not let you zoom in as much as the main map so my marker appears a few streets over from where I actually live - but, still very impressive.

Happy New Year and a great 2006 to you and to ALL Weenies and CB enthusiasts (whether they play or not).

Cheers

Steve

Much more acurate. Am puzzled by Steve's comment! My pin has gone with 50m of true, could only have been closer if it had shown the blocks in outline.

The five minute wait must be a Canadian thing.  Or Google is just busy over the holidays.

Happy New Year, Charlie

Bullseye for me. I no longer live in Radio Shack's loading bay. Usability enhancements will follow I'm sure but dialup connections will always suffer in a graphics-intensive app like this one unfortunately. Maybe they can get it running faster on the server side.

Alex, I see you got your pin place -- did you use someone else's computer?
