You have to be signed in to your google/​gmail account first (sign in/​sign up but­ton should be top-​right of the screen).

Then click the ‘Edit’ but­ton in the left hand col­umn. You should then be able to right-​click where you live on the map and select ‘Add a place­mark’. This then opens up a lit­tle box for title and descrip­tion. I would sug­gest your name as the title, and what species you keep in the description.

I think we have to look more into it, — it might be an option, — but any option we choose should be tried out for ‘user-​friendly-​ness’ as well as the dif­fer­ent other things regard­ing pri­vacy etc.

I don’t think it is too dif­fi­cult to work out, and it is only some­thing that each mem­ber would need to do once. It would also be entirely user dri­ven (other than per­haps point­ing peo­ple towards it — you could add a link to the nav­i­ga­tion bar at the top of the site), so wouldn’t require main­te­nance on the part of the admins.

Also, peo­ple can choose exactly what infor­ma­tion about them­selves they put up. And any­one wor­ried about reveal­ing what street they live on can just place their marker at a city cen­ter loca­tion, or what­ever dis­tance from their home they feel com­fort­able with!

Finally, it could also be made a pri­vate map, so that only peo­ple who have been given the URL can find it (ie it won’t show up in search results, etc).

Was just an idea any­way, as peo­ple were request­ing some way of find­ing other mem­bers :)

Big Tom, you did a big thing, just not ask­ing but doing!
But I think one infor­ma­tion should be added to each name: (near­est) town. Not more, no detailed address; that would be prob­lem­atic in respect of data secu­rity. The near­est town would suf­fice and be enough. If there are spe­cial enquiries to con­tact the near­est Paro-​friend, we could inform the per­son ask­ing that ques­tion just as we do at present. But for many peo­ple it would help to see the clus­ters and the dias­pora at one glance.
Tom, you added your spec. Sen­tang. Well, that might be done, too, but this per­sonal stock will vary more or less rapidly; I fear a bit too old infor­ma­tions on that. The town is much more needed than the spe­cific species, I think. But why not as an addi­tional infor­ma­tion? One only has to bear in mind that one should renew that species names if and when nec­es­sary.
I think it’s a very good idea to add a cat­e­gory “loca­tion” to the log-​in-​informations. Of course, we had to sup­ple­ment that infor­ma­tion for the hith­erto mem­bers, at least we should try to achieve that goal, but all new peo­ple would see that cat­e­gory as oblig­a­tory to be filled out. And indeed, the use­ful­ness of our net­work would be much more obvi­ous to all who come new.
Then, when it’s quite filled up with names and loca­tions, we could place it under the “maps”-button.
Helene, what do you think? That’s the solu­tion, I think! Thanks to Sylvia, Bill and Tom! Or what do you think?
And then of course do the same for Amer­ica and Asia!

No need for sep­a­rate maps for the other con­ti­nents Peter, you can add a marker to any­wgere in the world. I like the idea of a sin­gle global map. Up to you of course though!

Peter and Tom, I think its great, I actu­ally also man­aged to insert my own details.
So what remains is to insert links to it, and a good man­ual so peo­ple who are inter­ested could use it as they wish ..
Is that not what we should do next ?

I quess, that it would be the ‘owner’ of the map, who should edit whether its pri­vate or open, ?? I think it should be pri­vate yes, and every­one who reg­is­ter should be made aware of it. It is also pos­si­ble of course to insert a menu point here — to a reg­is­tered page (only mem­bers see that) in which the link is shown.
