Title: Forum member map.
Post by: jamie16v on 18 March 2011, 18:47
not sure how to set one up or if there is already one set up, but on one of my old forums there was a link where you could go and put a pin on the map which then would pop up members details like what mk golf they drive and roughly where they are from when they hover the mouse over it...
i suppose it would be a good tool for getting to know people who share the same interests ect.

Give this a go please... it's simple and if you like it we can stick in a sticky as I think this is a great idea... Please follow these instructions carefully.

Here's the Link Golf GTI Forum Members Map (http://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=220682)

I have added mine, it's a pic of my car in the Midlands, if you hover over it, it will tell you it's me!  :cool:

To add yourself:

Zoom in to your region, not your exact address, just a rough area for security reasons,

Click on the option at the top left of the map Additions

Then click on Add Marker - Simple

In the window that pops up, enter your forum user name in the Entry Name field

now click on Click on a map location

Click where you want your marker to be placed, a red star will appear as a preview.

In the pop up window, click select, job done!  :cool:

Any problems, gimme a shout.  :smiley:

Would also be an awesome tool for thieves to target specific cars.

Good idea I think, could it be tied up with something like a "Spotted" section...

You would only have to put an area rather than you're home address.

I'm working on something for this..... watch this space.  :cool:
