333, I put a marker for you on the map. Unfortunately, I forgot to add the important details (the bikes in your sig).

The pushpin button only becomes after you log in, so you'd have to log in to have another go. Also, I deeply apologize for inprecise instructions. After placing a pushpin, you also need to click on "OK" to save it. There may be other details I have missed.

As a business analyst, I should *never* have provided instructions without *fully* testing the instructions and system. I am ashamed of myself. I offer my apologies to all.

Pills guy, did you change the options on the map so that entries cannot be edited? I ask because I couldn't add details for 333 after I placed him on the map. It does make sense to lock the markers down. I noticed that, unbeknownst to me, I had moved Hope's marker. At least I think I did; her marker now shows as "last edited by Burmashave."

If we do lock the markers down, we need to provide a way to edit them.

Better still, mebbe it'd be a good idea if we had 2-3 maintainers, we could do the posting for all members. We might create a thread, and members could just post there, including city, state/province, country and text for a sig, plus an icon if desired. I think that would be a good idea, and I'd be happy to be one of the maintainers. Unfortunately, this might require another group email. :-(

All that said, for all its money, Google delivers lame software. They are the next Microsoft in terms of "use our software because we are the game in town." If you haven't used Ask.com for searches, try it out. Google hasn't much improved its search engine since delivery in '97. In fact, until Ask.com started putting pressure on Google, Google search results had become filled with the same type of spam that allowed Google to steal Alta Vista's lunch in the late 90's.

The humorous part about Google is that to be hired by Google, one has to pretty much convince the hirers that he or she is the next smartest human being on the planet. I'd say that intelligence is not the only factor in business, or even software design.

If I did anything to lock it, I did it on accident.  I don't really know how to use the map entirely.  I was thinking it would be nice to be able to lock the title of the map because people were putting their usernames and info in that section rather than on the placemarks, which is why there are so many "placemark 1,2,3, ect" pins. 

I think it would be a good idea for 2 or 3 people to do all of the placemarking.  Sounds like a lot of work because of the 4000+ members, but it will make everything consistent.  Perhaps Glenn could give us lists of usernames with locations and we could just start going through them.  What does everyone else think?

I'm with you, Pills Guy. It might be a bit of work at first, but I think it would even out over time.

Anybody know how to keep everything on one page?  Looks like once we have 200 placemarks it puts the next 200 on another page/map, which doesn't really help anybody out.

It shows me logged in when I go there, but I don't see any push pin to mark my location.

I think we may be losing some folks. I recall that there were 2 in New Zealand, but I don't see them anymore.

I said it before. Google, the billion dollar operation, can't make decent map software. Anyone remember the early versions of Internet Explorer?

FYI, I tried clicking on that link Burma, and it said "Session verification failed.  Try logging out and logging back in."  I logged out and logged back in and it still didn't work.

My problem was a new and interesting one. The member map didn't really exist when I logged in. There was a map labeled "Map Not Available," but as that was not available, it didn't do much good. When I logged out, I could access the member map. I tried logging back in, and the map disappeared. After trying this a few times, I logged out and tried logging in with the ID/password the group is using. I couldn't log in at all with that one. I didn't want to spend too much time with it this morning because the weather was great for riding.

I must be too dense to do this simple task,,...followed the directions to the letter, the !@#$%^&*() map would not let me get to my area and enlarge it to place my marker...guess Oklahoma is still a part of the confederacy or something.

way too frustrating to mess with for long so i'm backing out now before I break something :-\
