    thought it might be a somewhat cool thing to have a map of the world where we could pin our location on: give everyone a chance to see where everyone else is from.

    if it's here & I missed it, just tell me where to go...

    if it's too "band widt intensive"..I get that....

    any other input?

    Thanks to vape fan, we've now got a map that you can pin your location to (be as specific or a general with your location as you wish).
    1) zoom in the map to your location
    2) Click on the teardrop shaped pin thingy in the tool bar
    3) click on the map where you want to pin your location
    4) Insert your nickname in place of the "point XX"
    5) Click save changes...

    VIOLA! your location is now visible to others...within the specifics you chose when pinning your location

    I'd sign up for that. Pretty cool idea. I feel like there are members closer to me than I think. I know one is about 2 hours away

    That would be cool. I know of one member who lives very close to me, but we have not had the chance to meet yet.

    I actually know a VU member here in my little town in the middle of bumfuck Alaska

    I found out when he marched into my office one day and said "You're Juicy Lucy!"

    There's bound to be a way to share an online map. I know google maps has so that other's can pin places on the same map, but I don't have all the working details if that would work or what else google or other map has for sharing features. It would need to be compatible with android/ios/windows/ mac, or as many as possible.

    What are you using? Android/ios/windows or mac?
    If you want to add yourself for the sake of investigating this to work like we want. Or just add a pin some where so I can see the results. Doesnt have to be where you are. there's a toolbar in the mid-center and click the pin then where you want the pin to be.

    Yeah I'm guessing it automatically signs you into your account. Looks as if I'm signed in but can't tell if you are or not

    I purposely left edit open. I dont think members could add themselves if it were off. Of course that means someone could edit something they shouldn't. The workaround would be turning edit off, and one or a few members adding others.
    Just changed it from "anyone on web" to "anyone with link".
    Where in the world are you?

    I left a link to this thread in the mod chat to see if we can't get this stickied or something so more people can see it. Not just a random hope they join in. I think it's cool as hell

    Looks like it will work with mac too, just load Chrome if you don't have it and open it with that.

    I think I accidentally removed @JuicyLucy.
    There was an extra layer to the map and I didn't think we needed more layers :confused:

    I just put you back on, If you want to check it, change text, color...

    Probably a pin where you want to add your pin. Should be able to put your name on the new pin.
    Maybe zoom in to give it more space?
