The amount of people I get asking "have you got any members near X" or, "how many people live near Y" is astounding. So to help with this, I have started project "Member Map".

LINK TO MEMBER MAP

This map is now an automatic system that adds ANY members with more than 10 posts.
The locator is based on IP GeoTagging, so the pin will be "roughly" where you are, but not precise.
This means that your location is not specific, but a good indication which will help people arranging meets etc in your area.

YOUR PIN MAY BE IN THE WRONG PLACE AS THE LOCATION IS BASED ON YOUR IP ADDRESS
  1. Find your Pin
  2. If it is in the correct location, please move it slightly so that it remembers where you drop the pin, it will not move from where you drop it.
  3. If your pin is in the WRONG location, please locate it and drag it to the correct place, it will not move from where you drop it.
  4. If you are in the correct place but you DO NOT MOVE THE PIN, then you will find your pin moves if you log on with another device.

If you do NOT want to be on the map, you can OPT-OUT. To do this, click the link above, find your pin and click the "opt out" check box, your pin will then be removed.

You do need to check on where the map locates you. Ours were about 10 miles away but you can move it to your exact local then save it. Was a bit frightening to see the zoomed in image of our house and garden. I don’t know when Google earth took the photo but our garden looks a right mess, trying to hide it from the wife otherwise I can see me out there tidying up😢

I thought the very same thing when I looked at my house. In my defence i sorted it out before seeing the sat map. Also if you travel around the country with work it might put you some where random. Im based in Teesside but my pin was found by @Karl in Leicester of all places. It seems I had 2 geotags. 1 in London and 1 at home and I'd been places some where in the middle.

Ok... so with the new pin "grouping" when zoomed out... there appears to be a bug. Some people who are located in exactly the same place based on IP address cannot be separated. As a lot of people will have the same ISP, this means that there are large groups of people under one pin that cannot be split out. I have asked for this to be looked at and will update accordingly as soon as an update has been released.

When I click member map it's blank and it says I have to go into settings and turn on my location... I did that and it's already on and the member map is still blank. any ideas as to what this none techno mere mortal is doing wrong?

sorry not sure I explained that properly, when I said blank I meant that there is nothing there just a white screen :confused:

The member map has been set to "ONLINE USERS ONLY" so this should make it easier for people to find their markers.

Find it, drag it to the correct place, and then it will not move again.

Please do this ASAP so that we can turn "ALL MEMBERS" back on to show correct information for everyone.

@John64 can you PM me some screenshots of what you are seeing so that I can assist?

Did you have to move your pin? If not, please just go on it and drag it a little bit so that it remembers where you are and won't move again.
