13 August 2011:

We had a visit from what really looked like a spammer in this thread, so I am tightening down security.
I have changed the password and deleted the user name from the thread, so potential spammers cannot go in and screw with it.

If you want to be added to the map, just PM me or send me an email and tell me your info and I will add it myself.

I cleaned up poor Darwin's confusion (no worries, mate!), so Darwin, you may want to check it out and make sure I have it the way you want it.
Too bad I can't see your picture through my firewall here at work. Sad

Thanks Rob.

I will have to use another pc that I have google earth on, or try to find my old GPS unit to get long/lat data to enter my location onto the map, as the street address info for me isn't correct. Angry

You can pick up and drag the marker to wherever you want it to be.

It is not my exact address, I will correct it later.

It looks fine, NorR65! And welcome to the map! Smiley

Moving your pointer is very easy.

My! You certainly live out amongst the sea, don't you?

It is a short drive to the sea, a little longer to the fjords and mountains.
When I can thrust my R65 for longer trips I will get some photographs from my trips. At the moment I use my Yamaha Tenere.
If it is allowed here is a link to tourist information from Bergen/Norway.

I just figured it out and added myself.

Go to the map and sign in with the username and password listed by Rob on the 1st post of this thread.
If you have a Google account, you may need to log out, first. mod.

On the left pane of the screen click edit, create yourself a name and save it

On the map the blue symbol appears at the top, drag this to your location and allocate your name to it.

There's no instructions on adding a point, the only choices on the left panel are set default location, and add your business location to google maps, so I'm stumped. PS Google has never recognized my address, I use something nearby when getting driving directions, if that matters. PS - I logged in no problem.

Never mind, got it, not sure what I did, except went back a page or something. Boy, no one near me, except Toronto.

Log in to the map, zoom into your location (or click on your name on the left), then click on "Edit".
You can then click & drag the marker to wherever you want.
Then "Save".

We had a new, 1-post user post a 1-word reply to this thread, "congratulations".

It smelled like spam to me, so I copied the username and sent if off to Justin for deletion, then I deleted the post.

Justin asked if there was anything I could do to tighten security on the map, so I deleted the instructions in the OP and changed the password.

I'll be happy to share the password with one or two other trusted regulars, but from now on, all new additions to the map will have to be done through me or one of the other volunteers.

See the OP for details.

I am still the only member with logon information to this map, and if anything were to happen to me that would be lost, so I need a couple of volunteers to accept co-responsibility with me. No big deal, but I keel over suddenly, it would become an issue.

Also, I removed everyone's street addresses that put them on there when we had open placement.
I don't think it is such a good idea for that information to be public.

And lastly, who is our member that lives in South Africa?
He made his user name the "Durbanville", which is the city where he lives.
I would like to put his correct handle in there.

Our most recent addition, Rudi76, gives us TWO members in the Cape Town, SA area!

And I changed my signature line to include a link to the map.

Been a bit crook (that's as in ill, indisposed, etc. I haven't been stealing anything, honest) but now laughing my head off. I can't remember how to access the map. Can anyone assist. I've moved from Sydney to the Shoalhaven.
