I'm from new york, and not the big city.  It is a little town called allegany and it is just two hours south of buffolo.  Trying to hook up with someone that knows how to do this kind of stuff.  Thanks.

Well I'm based in England, I have made contact with at least one local diaboloist through noticing the location under the author name.
one way to find diaboloists is to go to juggling clubs, there is one in buffalo I believe http://www.buffalojugglers.org/ (long way to go for a club for me but thats because mines quite near)

Well, I'm from good ol' Australia, Tasmania to be exact, and I know that there are a few other Aussie's on this forum (Squiggle, Scooby, Stroevey [Why do they all start with a "S"?!?]) So its not to bad for meeting up with others, lucky me though cause me and Squiggle live like 5 mins away from eachother! :)

I'm from Ellesmere Port (Cheshire's hellhole.) There are a couple of jugglers here but the props we juggle mainly juggle are different. I wouldn't mind knowing if there are any jugglers in Liverpool or even a juggling club as it's only 45 minutes on the train.

I think this thread is a good idea, who looks at the name of every single person who posts in the forum? It's an easy way to get in touch with people close to you.

I'm from argentina but im living in birmingham, uk, at the moment, probably not for a lot longer though... Any other southamericans here?

Well, if you click on the Memberlist, you can sort by location.  Ok it won't tell if people are near you, but it's the nearest thing.

Plus if you read this forum as much as I do, you notice when people have a location that's close by.  In other words, keep on visiting people!

Thats perfect.  Maybe this could be edited into the first post in the introductions thread.  That way the regulars will know where it is, and newer members should stumble across it when  wanting to introduce themselves. Just a thought

Ah well done Barnesy.  Umm, you do realise there's a Liverpool in New York?  There's also a Bath in Maine I think...  I think this should be tagged to the introduction and people fill it out.  It's surprisingly simple, I thought I would have had to do a whole long registration form.

I think USA realises that the United Kingdom has better place names.  Like Pratts Bottom, and Thong.

Yes, it's easy to use apart from the initial stage of telling it where Liverpool is.  It offered 'non US', so I clicked it, it said 'which world city do you want then?', I said 'Liverpool', and it said 'wahey, you live in New York now'.  I think I've corrected it now though.

Add stores/shops to the map to simplify shopping.

Wouldn't it be great to know that there is an awesome store close-by that you did not know existed?  Let's all add Places to the map to help everyone out.

I added Jugglingstore.com to the map, and it is currently behind my icon when zoomed out far enough.

I don't think that's a great idea unfortunately.  http://www.jugglingdb.com/vendors already has a list of vendors around the globe and you can display them on the map.  I think also putting them on this map would complicate things.

But then I suppose if people know about the IJDB vendors list, they'd sign up as well and put them on the IJDB members globe.  Ah, whatever makes ya feel better.

Well, it is a very different icon/pin thing that is in use that looks like it will come in behind any actual person's location.

And there's an IJDb globe?  Well, worth a shot anyway!

***Edit: Okay I found it.  Clicking on the big picture of a globe sure works well.

It's growing steadily but would be good to see more arrows on there.  Maybe I'll link it from the introductions thread at some point.
