I built a google map that you guys can drop a pin in the city you live in and edit it to add your screen name. I thought it would be a good resource to find other members near your location. You never know, a new riding buddy could be just around the corner!

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=z9OsB3eGMDnw.kB3fWl6vsHj0&usp=sharing

Drop a pin and find another member near you!

Theres several ways to drop a pin. You can type your town, state and or country into the search bar and it will drop a yellow pin in that location. Click the yellow pin and and a box appears. Click "add to map" and that should do it.

Once its added to the map you can use the pencil icon to edit in your name and number if you wish.

If you have created a point but need help editing it or just can't seem to get it done just send me a PM with your info.

If you have created a point but didn't edit it to list at the minimum of your screen name to go with it, I will probably delete it after a couple days. I don't want a map full of blank points as it kinda defeats the purpose. If you have problems, I will help.

What a great idea!

I never knew you could do something like that.

So far, no pins even close to me. Maybe will change.

Best,
Darryl

I've seen them done before on a few other forums I've belonged too. I didn't know how to build and share it but with some research, YouTube and an hour it looks like I got it done.

Good to see its working!

Great idea, thanks. In the comment box I added my real name and phone number. Now we need to have the moderator make it a sticky so that it would be easy to find.

This is going to get interesting as the pins drop all over the world. :smile:
I made a quick access to the map page on my iPhone. This will be a nice addition to the MOA Anonymous book I carry on trips.

Adding at least a real first name and a contact number would be like building our own semi-anonymous book of forum members. It's not a bad idea and I doubt I would get anymore unsolicited calls than I do now LOL! I'll change mine shortly.

I too would like a sticky..

OK...two simple folks here, with basically the same question.

While I figured out how to drop the pin, I can't figure out the steps to input my name, cell and email info?

I'll look again later, as I'm probably missing something pretty simple...hopefully.

Editing Pin Info

OK, figured out how to edit the map pin info.

Click the map pin, then in the info box that opens, click the pencil looking icon on at the bottom of this box, which allows you to edit the info displayed on the list and when a map pin is clicked upon.
