Wow, have you seen this map (https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=1253169) lately? There are a LOT of us! I have been adding to the map as members post on laura44's thread, http://forum.missouriquiltco.com/how-use-site/39793-list-where-everyone-lives.html Then I thought I'd add to it by pinning everyone's hometown only if they posted it in their profile.

We need more people in the Western states! Come on y'all - represent! We even have some, not a lot, but some international quilters!

You can create the pin yourself, or reply in laura44's thread and I will do it for you.

Wow, little did I know how the post would take off.
You did an awesome job! Yes, need more west coast people!

The map is very representative of how it is out here ... people in the western states are a lot more spread out than those back east.

That's so cool! I'm in Novato, CA, about 40 minutes north of Laura44, and I just replied to that thread. I tried to add myself to Bel Marin Keys (where I actually live, a little east of Novato) but I got a red star instead of a balloon?

I don't think I made it onto the map, can you add me, please? I am in Brisbane, Land of Aussies. I am not too far at all from our Pami Patch who is on the Gold Coast. Both beautiful parts of the world.

I tried to be very thorough looking at all the states and it seems that we have at least one forum member in each state. I couldn't find Blondie! I know she is NC.
This is so cool!!!

Wow, that's cool! And I'm on it! All by my lonesome over here on my little rock lol Speaking of which, are you able to move the pins? It's a little nitpicky, I know, but the pin for me is actually up in Labrador, when I'm down on the Avalon Peninsula of the island portion of the province. I'm just outside of the capital city, St. John's, in a town called Paradise (yes, seriously). We're an odd province, we have a mainland and an island portion and the islanders are very proud of being islanders and the mainlanders (Labradorians) are very proud of being from Labrador, but when push comes to shove we're all one big province and are proud of our diversity :)

You get the red star, then you have to select SUBMIT to save it. I added you.

You are there already. Click on the little arrows (<<) on the very right edge of the map to see the names. Then you can scroll down and find your name. Or click on VIEW - SHOW LIST.

Alaska has one member on Kodiak Island and I think there is one in Juneau.

Not nitpicky at all... When I created your pin, I plopped you in a somewhat central area of Newfoundland since that's what is in your profile. I moved you to the island :)

The map is so cool. I like to see where everybody lives. It's so interesting to see that there a quite a few European members and some even further away.

It is pretty easy to add yourself for the first time. If you have to update your location, then Snippet is the one to help straighten that out!
It is pretty cool to see where everybody is located!

did you click on the forum link, or the "this map"? "This Map" is the one that takes you to the map https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=1253169 , the original forum thread was relocated

If you created the pin yourself, I think you can update it. But I created a lot of them, so it's up to me to move them. Or I could delete it altogether and let you create a pin. Let me know.
