I have added another Rivetheads Members map to the FC Features menu. It is basically the same except it groups the pins together until you zoom in. This is a quick and easy way to see how many Rivetheads have added their location.

Thank you everybody for updating your site profile with your location and an Avatar. The members Map "Rivetheads" is filling up nicely...

Reminder to those of you who haven't updated your profile, it is your site profile and not the forum profile that needs to be updated.

But you say when YOU looked at it today, it was blank. Seems that you are seeing something different than what I am seeing in the Profile, which might explain why more people don't have their Location info entered into the site...

Ahhhh! After writing above, I triple-checked, and I realize there are two Profiles: the "Site" profile, and the "Forum" profile. I have always reached my Profile by clicking my name while in the Forum. I didn't realize there was a second Profile anywhere... I see you can reach the Site Profle under the "Miscellaneous" heading on the upper right corner of the site.


Jeff,
The new map works off of the site profile location field.

With the new profile add on there is a way to integrate the two profiles but the new profile add on currently takes two much control away from the forum profile editor.

Jeff,
When I look at your "Site" user profile there is no address information. I added Huntsville, AL to your site profile in the location entry... and now you are good to go...

Steve, can you look at my profile and try to figure out why don't know up on the map? I put my address in when I first signed up, as City, State, ZIP. Occasionally I would see myself on the map, but most of the time it only showed 10-12 pins. Sometimes I would find if I refreshed my browser while displaying the map, additional pins would show up.

Since you recently improved the map interface, I looked at the map again. My name is shown below the map as an online user, but there is no address shown for me, while addresses ARE shown for several other online users.

I changed my address to remove the zip, thinking that might be causing a problem. But it didn't make any difference.

(I work in the GIS industry, so I have an abnormal interest in the map. I think it's cuel.)

Thanks to everyone so far who gas added there location to there profile. The new members map is starting to fill up.

Those of you who have not yet added there location please do so by adding at a minimum your city and state to the location entry on you site user profile.

Existing members can update their profile by clicking on your username on the Rivetheads map or click on the Miscellaneous menu and then select "Site User Profile" to add their location. If your name fields are not filled out you will not be able to save your changes unless you enter something in this field.

User name fields will also be required. I know a lot of people do not put their names down when they register so put what ever you want. I cannot force anybody to put down their real name only that the fields are required.
