    Just because I like visual representations of things, I thought making a Google map highlighting where everyone is might be a cool idea. If it works, cool, if not, oh well.

    Anyways, just head to http://bit.ly/13pI7yl to drop a marker where you are. In the title area, use this example 'Location' - 'Username' - 'Daily Driver'. You can also write any details in the description box down below.

    When you head to the page, hit the red 'Edit' button in the left column. Then, on the map, select the blue pin button to drop a pin in your location. Once you do, a box will come up allowing you to enter in your details. Oh yah, you will need to have a gmail account in order to edit the map as you will have to be signed on in order for the Edit button to appear

    If anyone has any other suggestions or wants to make changes, please feel free. I just made this quickly before heading to work.

    I was thinking that we could make a simple list, too. Might as well.

    Put in a postal code near you. I always use my work one for stuff like this.

    That's a good point. I moved my location so it's no longer exact, just in the general area.

    Why not make it a sticky at the top of each region sub forum?

    Thanks for sharing the map to the other threads. Makes more sense in making it encompass the entire community.

    I'm on a Google-minimising mission, but it should be fairly obvious where I am located. :)
