I just had cause to look at a member's details and went to it via "Member Map". While I was there I decided to see what was shown on my own, but ...... my user name (nor my 'proper' name) is not on the list. I'm clearly a member as I can write this - can other people see their own name, or can you only see everyone else?   🤓

Yes.

 

It was a long time ago, but I think you have to 'register' with your location to be shown.

Yes - but not "Tam & Di"

Can't see mine because never added location to the map. More a bit of fun and guess people don't update. Two random checks showed one user in Greenland and another's boat I know to be in the north at the moment showing as down near London.

Thanks. Must be because I had alternative locations, so I've changed that to see what happens. I did notice that members have boats in Thailand and other unlikely places 😃

You aren't shown on the Members map, presumably because you have not given a location, but you are on the "members" list

Blimey I have never looked at or contributed to the map and just looked at it and I am shown as being in Tbilisi,  Georgia 🤣

I've heard it's quite nice at this time of year.

Will you bring us some rock back?

Right - I've entered a French address and I'm now on the map. Unfortunately I'm shown at right the opposite end of the country to where I actally am, but at least I exist. I might change the address though 'cos it's bloody cold right here now. Somewhere with decent wine - Marlborough, New Zealand should be good.

Sadly, the map is only for the earth. Wouldn't be able to place some members who, lovely, knowledgeable and sharing of that wisdom they may be, do seem to be on another planet, in a parallel universe at times. Long may they be so, makes life so much richer.

 

eta: of one who I was thinking could well be off earth, it seems they are out in the middle of the Pacific. Now who is going to tempt fate by going for the Mariana Trench?

Maybe put there by someone indulging in a bit of wishful thinking😈

I'm in Puddle California! 😀

 

Had no idea it tried to guess your location from whatever you said was your location.

Yes, as said, the member map location is separate from the location field in the user profile and both have to be filled in by the user.

 

You can as as much, or as little detail from a country, town, postcode.
