    Default New Member Map shows your location!

    I've added a member map to the forum that shows your location in the world. If you'd like to add yourself, click 'Member Map' on the taskbar above, and at the bottom of the map view, you'll see a button marked 'Add Location'. Click it, fill in the info, and click on the map where you are.

    You must be a registered member to add yourself

    Cheers!
    Wassail!

    I just looked at the member map today (I'm a little slow, what can I say?) and I must tell you that is one of the neatest things I have seen. That's a really great addition to the site - Thank you Vicky and Pete!

    It gets even cooler when you select the satellite images. Pete, I was looking right down on your place today and I could swear I saw you sunning on the deck with someone - Quite Naughty!

    Well, I had to check out what Medsen thinks he saw, so I went to the map and...

    ...a bunch of us who had been shown earlier have now disappeared!

    Vicky, I think there's a bug in your map database.

    Bummer -- now I can't see Pete's deck (or my hot tub, for that matter).



    -- OK, now that's really weird. I just checked again (not 5 minutes after posting the above) and every past entry is back. Strange!

    And now we know where to find you! But I suspect that you will get up here before I have a chance to travel to central America -- my vagabond scuba diving trips are over for a while, at least until our kids are old enough to be on their own. Although I would like to dive around Little Corn someday.

    So I was looking at the member map, which I still think is a really cool feature, but I see only 50 folks have put themselves on the map so far. I know there are more of us here in Florida, and I hope y'all will fill in the gaps.

    Yes, I know some of you want to avoid the raids from cellar rats and are trying to stay in hiding, but trust me, it won't work - they can smell the good stuff from across the state.

    And, I'm also sure more than a couple of us are either on the lam or in witness protection. Don't worry, you're excused.

    A most excellent map site. I can use it to find my way home after a good taste testing.

    Head's up Olen, you've got a neighbor just down the road! Now it's the not-quite-alone star state.

    Yup, and at least one more up the road a piece in Austin-tacious, but they haven't added themselves yet it appears. Startin' to get down right crowded now! -- Olen

    Default Chicago -center of the mead universe?

    Perhaps, it is a little too early, and all the posts may not be in, but it looks like Vicky is going to have to declare the Greater Chicago Area as the Mead Capital of the World!

    Kinda looks that way, doesn't it? While I know that there are more meadmakers here in Colorado (Hey, guys!! Get around to posting your locations so we can see more push-pins along the front range!) I don't think we'd catch up to Chicagoland even if everyone posted from here.

    Now Wayne, you know it's not the quantity of mead makers in an area. It's the quality of the meads being made.

    And now that Greenie's gone, even the quantity in the area is down.

    I see there are 99 members posted on the member map. Now wait, before this becomes a new drinking song, I'm just saying that there should be some special recognition for the 100th member location posted.

    What do we give to the 100th map poster?

    And who shall it be?
