Where are we all?
« on: July 25, 2012, 05:52:35 am »
Okay, this is NOT a request for your address!  I've seen a few people comment on their locations, and I figured it would be neat to see how spread out we are. 
(Oooh, a demographic graphic?  :D )

I've made this map unlisted, so you have to have the link to view it (ie, no one random will see it) just so we can talk about it with each other.  Still, no need to add names or specifics.  Just put a pin on your city!

I don't think the forum is blocked/private/members-view-only, so if it makes you the slightest bit uncomfortable, please don't add yourself!  (Although if there's a way to lock this thread so only members can view it, that would be cool.)

All you should have to do is a search for your city/continent/whatever, click on the red Pin, and then Save to Map.  I tried looking at it when I wasn't logged in and it seemed to still be that way.  Many apologies for confusing everyone!

Fun, fun! I've added myself. :)

Hmmm... that might be pretty silly, but how do I add a pin on the map?

Click Edit, then right click on the map to add and name your placemark. Took me a bit too, haha! I'm down here in DFW :)

Took me a minute, too. :)

When you have the map up, list your city and state, and there will be a button that lets you save location to map.

I've added myself now; we Aussies need to stick together! :D  That took way, waaay too long for me to figure out, even with everyone's directions.

Added! Though my location is subject to change when I return to college. Ugh, why does it take so long to graduate?

I really have to be blind.  I haven't found an edit button, and still haven't managed to add a pin **sighs**

I think you have to log into your Gmail (if you have one) to see it.

You don't need one - I only have Gmail logged in in my tablet and I was able to put a place marker while on my desktop. The only thing Gmail will do is link to your profile with you log your entry. Try hitting the Contribute button on the left?

I'm also solo on my continent here in Israel! According to all opinions! (Since some say we're Asia, some say we're Africa)

Can someone stick a pin in Oxfordshire England for me?  I'm blonde, technology phases me.  Engineering though...easy :D

Don't worry, you're not the only one.  I fail at this.  I feel like I'm not seeing the interface everyone else is **sighs** Amos, Qc, Canada for me here and I gave up trying to stick that pin myself.
