    Snippet's map of where we all are.

    Somewhere in the annals of the site is a thread started by someone that Snippet aka Carol added a link to an interactive map that she started to. I am dropping that link here and sticking the thread so that we can find it in the future. If you are new, old or in between and haven't yet added your location to the map, join in. It is a fun to see where everyone is.

        Amazing how many of us there are. I can't believe it.. The first time this morning I actually found mine, but after moving around it, I couldn't find it again. How fun!

          Yep, it was Laura44's great idea. I just found the site to make it easy.

          I wondered why there's been a bunch of new pins lately.

            I just updated my location, but it won't let me remove the wrong one. I guess if you are going to drop in for a visit, you will either end up at my house, or sitting in the middle of the road on the way to the State Park!
            The park is pretty cool, so I guess it isn't a total loss!

              I found myself in the middle of the heap. Nice idea.

                Thanks to the genius mind that put this together! I am curious, is there a computer smarty out there who can tell us which state has the most members? I don't know how to pull statistics off a map but I bet someone does.

                  I could do that, but there are two problems.
                  1. The map isn't all the members of the forum. It's only those who wanted to put a pin where they live. A while back, I went through the forum member list and added members who had their location in their profile - but there are over 10,000 members so I just added those members with at least 500 posts. So some are user-entered and some I entered. But not everyone is on that map.
                  2. I'm about to leave for a cruise this week and don't have the time to pull the data and give you a state breakdown. If you really want to know about the members, it would be better to pull the data from the forum. I don't think that capability exists though.

                    Great! But I am not on it and may not have 500 posts. How do we add ourselves to the map?

                      Go to the map, click "additions" on the top left, click "add a marker"

                        You are absolutely amazing that you would go to the trouble to do this for us. Thank you for that. And enjoy your cruise.

                          Not sure you were ever responded to regarding adding yourself to the map. I just found it this morning. Really interesting.
                          go to the site https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=1253169
                          In the top ribbon click on Addition and follow the brief instruction. That's it. If you want to view your entry, it will be in the right hand sidebar in alpha order. If you want to see it on the map, drag the map to where you roughly are and then use the + sign below the map on the right hand side to enlarge it to where you can clearly see the teardrop indicator. Hover over the "teardrop indicator on the map" and that should be you!

                            This is so great. But for some reason my location is wrong. It shows me many miles from where I really am. Is there a way to change that.

                              That's because I probably added your pin in the center of Maryland. A person can't change a pin, unless it's one they created themselves. I'll delete the pin and let you add your own so it will be in the right location.
