Question Map of MT members

Hey all,

Apologies if this already exists, but I thought this would be a cool idea:

http://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=202182

The link above takes you to a site called zeemaps. My idea is that users here can go and add in their locations to the map so users at mt can easily see other members in their general vicinity.

Just click "Additions" > "Add Marker - Simple" and put in your username, and link to your mt profile in the description.

Is anyone else on board for this? The location markers don't have to be exact. No one needs to know what street you're on. Perhaps just the city you're closest to.

If this picks up we could also include this in the newbie registration stickies.

I like it, but is there a way to incorporate it into the website? Feels very seperate.

That's up to the admins. My website coding knowledge is limited so I'm not sure if it's possible to incorporate this into the forum site.

I imagine if it's not possible, links to this map could be provided in a couple places.

I was on the old one. Nobody used it so it died. We have enough trouble getting people to put their locations in their profile...

I like this idea. Mazda-speed had something similar, but it sucked.

I saw little to no use of it after a month or two so I stopped up keep on it. I could finish it or transfer the spreadsheet over to someone else if they would like to do it. I never have any time to finish little things like this that need upkeep *starts updating the map*
