The DTFer World Map v. Where Do You Live....
« on: September 24, 2012, 08:19:26 AM »
An idea I had from some silliness in the funny thread. Here's the idea, I have posted a simple map of the world. Each DTFer will add to it a small black dot representing where they live, and re-post it. Hopefully, by the end we can have some kind of cool representation of where all of us hail from. Also type out your home town for those of us who suck at geography.

My original idea for this was taken by Cozmo and made awesome, as Cozmo tends to do with most ideas, songs, and pretty much everything else, so for the way it's done, read the following post.....

Okay, apparently GM DOES allow open collaboration on maps.  I set one up here:

Link

I had BVD go in to post his location, to ensure that it worked properly.  It appears to have worked fine, so everyone should be able to go in and add their location.  To add yours, click edit, zoom to your location, then click on the button on the map that looks like a purple balloon.  Place the placemark, put your name in the title and the location in the notes area.  Also, in the little edit window, it shows the purple balloon in the upper right hand corner.  If you click on that, you can choose from a bunch of different placemark icons.  Then click done.

If this starts to get messed up or things aren't working right, I can add placemarks for people if they send me their data or whatever.

Yours is there, though it has your address as the title as opposed to your username.  I edited it to show your username in the title, but your address is still in the info field, if you want to remove it.

Perhaps you should ask bosk to reverse the "e" and "a" in the second half of your user name.

Also, a note, whenever you enter your pinpoint and are done with it, you can "grab" it on the list to the left, and drag it up to its proper place, alphabetically.

Topic sticked by request.  I also deleted all the posts before Coz setting up the new "official" map because it would be confusing for people just entering the thread who might not read all the way down to the part with the new map.
