Map
I'm trying to make a location map for everyone. I dont know how the permissions or linking to it works though. Can someone try going here and see if you see my pin? http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&gl=us&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=10..." onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; if you can, try and edit it. I think I may have to add people as "collaborators" but I dont know if you need a google acount. Edit:
Instructions: 1. Create a google account. 2. Message me or anyone already on the map with the email you used to create that account. 3. I or the person you messaged can then add you as a "collaborator". 4. Log onto your account and open the map. 5. To the left of the map click "edit". On the upper left corner of the map will appear a button with a blue pin on it. 6. Zoom into your location as close as you like, changing to satelite view is best (my pin is directly on my house). 7. Click the pin button and place the pin on your location. 8. Fill out the title and click "ok". 9. To the left of the map click "save". Done! OR Just message me your location and the name you wish to show and I will place it for you.

Re: Map

I can edit the title of the map and click collaborate, add a comment, but I can't add myself on the map - I don't think!

Re: Map

I'm sending you a mail link that should add you as a collaberator. I think...
To add your location you'll need to be able to see the little pin button on the map itself after you click edit.

Re: Map

Ok, in order to place your own pins you will need to create a google acount, then pm me with the email adress you used to create it and I will add you.
If you do not wish to make an account just send me the location where you want the pin and I'll place it for you. :)

then one youve found your town click this:

I have not yet figured out how to use the search to easily find a place that you can then pin. The closest I get is by having it in "my maps" I can search for the location, then click on my maps and it will leave the map at that spot for me to pin.

Angela, I put yours on :)

Re: Map

Ummmmm....I think I broke it. I tried to place a pin and it kept dropping them in random places around the map...including one in the middle of the Pacific ocean. And it wouldn't let me delete them once I realized that random pins were being dropped.

Re: Map

Re: Map

Whoa, this thing is awesome! Sara, the satellite picture of your place is definitely outdated, but when you drop the little orange man thing on your pin, you can actually see your barns.

Re: Map

I was trying last night to find a way to add something like this to the forum but there isn't a mod for it. Not sure what would be a good way to add it to the site...maybe just a link? I can add links like stickies to the forum.

Re: Map

Sara, we are all alone in the NW. We've got to get Tianateke to add her marker so we have a little more representation.

Re: Map

Stick in Christchurch...I don't think anything else actually right near to the farm would be big enough to show up. Chch is about 50 kms from the farm, so close enough to make no never mind :laugh1 Thanks!

Re: Map

I added you to Christchurch. I think it is safe to say you are the furthest south at this point :D. Now we just need more non-Americans to be added as well...come on now, I know there are plenty of English and Irish members about.
