UKCS Members Map **** NEW *****

Postby TC on Thu Feb 19, 2009 12:18 am

The UKCS Members Map system is now up and running and available by clicking [Member Map] top right of the forum screen. This new map system is fully integrated to the forums.

You have to press "SUBMIT", below the map after editting your position.

We have pre-populated a rough location for all recent active members of the forum to get the ball rolling. This is only very approximate and based on an IP to world location. Its accuracy varies wildly, but usually to the nearest internet hub, so people who live close to each other will all be clustered around that common location. However, the expectation is you update your position to somewhere closer to home. We recommend not positioning your marker exactly on your house but as close as you feel comfortable. You can also add comments against your marker and change your marker type as you wish.

The map supports a cool search feature, so you can search and find other members.

We want this to be an interesting and fun addition to UKCS. The map system is fully moderated, and any comments or silly placement of markers will result in the marker being deleted and possibly being blocked from putting down a new marker.

Thanks to Nour who developed this official UKCS addition providing a professional and fantastic implementation. We've been working on this for weeks, since the concept was prototyped many weeks ago. Thank you Nour.

Have fun everyone! :D

Did you click the red thing and move it or did you click a location on the map?

Fantastic work, both of you. I know how much hard graft Nour put into this, and it's great to see it finally in action! :)

Wow, that was fast, only testing this this afternoon :)

Grats to TC and Nel for getting this back up and running :)

Oh, just one thing of comment, when clicking on a users name (At least in firefox) it's difficult to read the users name in the speechbubble, appears as a very night grey font.

Excellent work getting this map feature up. The map had me in me hometown of York which makes me feel a little homesick :( Looking at the map I am currently the closet one to UKCS HQs. So TC, if you see a crazy china man hiding in the bush outside your home drinking Guinness from a can, that would be me.

This is amazing. Moved my marker to where the local hub is, before all those saggy stalkers think they can come and get some moobs.

Nice work chaps, thanks.

Sweet feature! :D

although updating my location doesn't seem to work. I changed myself from Badhoevedorp (near Amsterdam) to inside Amsterdam, but in the overall map, it isn't updated. When I click modify location again, I do see my updated location, so it is saved somewhere.
