I think this thread is a good idea, who looks at the name of every single person who posts in the forum?


Me :D

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

P.S Nice find Barnesy
Rennes July 10-17th 2011!

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.

Lol, you can change the longitude and latitude, but still keep the name of your own city. That's why he's on the north pole. :P

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.

Just a quick bump to advertise this: http://www.frappr.com/diabolo

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.
