I made a map at Google.com and pinned myself on it. Anybody else wants to pin themselves with a quick summary of their experience and games, feel free...

I couldn't figure out how to add myself to your map without copying it into My Maps.

Maybe I simply needed to sign in?

Did my marker show up on your map?

I've added myself, but the coordinates are those of my FLGS (Game Empire Pasadena, stop by if you're ever in the area!).

Yeah I think you have to be signed in to do it.. I am pretty sure I set the collateral thing up right since another poster here did it..

Now they just need to add a thing to the user database at Ad Astra so it emails people every year to update their entry in the registry or remove them automatically... several people I tried to contact never answered back or had emails that were bad.

Damn, I just realized, instead of the blue pins on the map, you should be able to pin a wasp or rafik on its minature stand on the map.. shoot!

Good idea, Ron. A good thing Google updated this neighborhood a couple of weeks ago.

Please set your GPS to default location and confirm coordinates.

:wink:


Also, yes, I'm seeing everybody else's pins as well. Ken, are you in touch with Tom Rhoads, who lives near Annapolis?

Mmm... haven't had any contact with Tom Rhoads AFAIK (at least, not ringing any bells in my notoriously bad memory)
