The bad news is that the Member Map we were using on the site has not been updated to work with this version of the message boards.But the good news
is that there's an even better
version of it available, built on Google's Map API, derived from Google Earth
. The new Member Map is absolutely amazing, allowing you to re-center and zoom in, with either the satellite view, map view or a hybrid view (which I've set as the default.) When you
click your mouse
on a member's pin, that person's info is displayed.
To place you pin, go into your Profile
and click on the Forum Profile Information
link under Modify Profile
. Towards the bottom of the page you show see the Google Map; just find your location and place your pin, then click on the "Change Profile" button. Your pin will be displayed on the main Member Map.
Unfortunately, the old pin placements could not be converted to the new Member Map, so once again I'd like to encourage everyone to place your pin!
I corrected myself - you have to click on a pin to see the member info.[/edit]
