    Yes it has been frozen because they have limited their free plan to 100 views for the lifetime of the account, which is silly. The paid version is $10/month, but I won't be buying it. Sorry y'all.

    I could make a map using Google maps, but it would take a lot of managing which I'm unable to do long term. And I haven't found a better mapping app that lets us pin our own locations.

    Re: Snippet's map of where we all are.

    Just joined and thought it might be fun to add my location, but don’t have a clue how to add. Still fumbling around the site to see what all you have here. Sure looks like a lot to find, so I guess I will be busy for the summer..... Thank you to all that put these sites together. Lots of hard work and appreciated by all.

    Click on the link Karen provided. At the top of the page you will see

    Map View Additions

    Click on Additions and follow the prompts.....it's really simple to do. All the members are listed alphabetically ( by their user names ) so if you can't find your pin, just scroll down the list to find your name.

    I managed to put myself on the map and saw that there are only 2 of us showing for France :-( I'm sure there are more of us !

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

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

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