    Well, bad news/good news. Our IT guys think this is feasible but not quite as easy to implement as we are thinking it will be. There's also an issue with the pins, once they get to a high enough number, causing the map to slow down to a crawl. We're running down some higher priority items so this will happen, it's just not at the top of the list. So I guess it's bad/bad/good news really. I'll provide more updates when I have them.

    Seems to work OK. click the pin icon, place it on the map and type in the member name in the box.

    John stay tuned. I'm raising this up to our developers to see if there's already a vB mod out there we can add to the forum.

    All the data is in there, you just need someone that can have access to it, it all resides in a database somewhere.

    I had to log in in order to add a pin. Still very confusing in order for me to add my location and title it Huskee instead of the town (Farwell). It labels it as "B", and you're "A". If we get hundreds or thousands of members doing this, how would that work?

    I'm in Texas, how big could that be?

    I'm liking where this is heading, but think we need to have it officially controlled by the AR team if that's possible so that only club members can view and make edits to the map. Is that workable?

    I agree completely Michael

    I like this idea! I like even more the idea of individual users inputting their own data as a means of support for a default opt in/opt out cpability. In addition the approach that John is using above allows for each "The Pit" member to control the granularity of the map to where exactly they put their pin. What I am trying to say is that I can either choose to put the pin precisely where I live, or I can put the pin in the middle of the town that is my mailing address without actually giving an exact location or address where I live. Obviously I would choose to input precise locations of really good Q locations so everyone could find them.

    There is nowhere to type an address, that I can see.

    Yeah you can use custom markers. If others can't edit the one I posted I can compile from a list somewhere, or find a free host to host it and let others add.

    You can't just type your address in the box and click add a marker?

    Technically anyone could edit that one, but they have to use the link (because I made it that way) so that should cut down most unwanted editing.
