Please that was a cool little part of this site I really liked. Or is it here and I am completely missing it?

So you can't add custom fields to the profile? You could always tell people if they want to be included in the map, they can set their location as the name of their prefecture. Then its just a simple database lookup script to show who's in each prefecture.

Old thread, but what about something like this? http://www.maploco.com/

Yeah, the map would be nice!

We'll look into it. The old map was a mod for phpBB, but I'm unaware if there's a decent option for vBulletin.

Er... this has been done. There's been announcements about it most major parts of ITIL. :)

:confused:

Does that make it any less of a great idea?

No, but the idea is now reality!

So it's a great... real... thingy. Yeah.

I like this idea!

But we love you, Sciby, especially if you're going to give us a map!

Thank you for installing the member's map, Sciby! It's awesome!

Also, I think now is the time to tell you all that I'm a transvestite! A bad one! I don't even shave my legs!

Did the link to the members map move or did it get taken down?

I don't get it... you wrote it?

Sciby, I think. Only he knows about my legs.

Mods editing other users posts without an edit notice, lovely. And people thought the site was communist China / Nazi Germany under my administration.

Yeah, fidelity's obviously real upset at this breach of privacy.

Not edit so much as replace entirely. It originally said something like "So, Sciby, I think this map thing's a good idea! When's it going to happen?" It's ok, whoever did it has my unnecessary retroactive permission.

Sciby

Huh... I honestly don't remember editting that post... and I certainly wouldn't have removed the "editted by Sciby" tag at the bottom if I did do it. Triv? Dom? Anyone else?

eta: On rereading it several times, it does seem like something I'd do, but where's the "edited by" tag? It certainly wasn't meant to be some cruel admin stealth edit. *shrug*

No no I always put a little in text note at the bottom apart from the 'last edited by Dombay'. 'Please Read the Site Rules - Dom' or something.

Except Ini. You may find a few 'I have a small penis' posts by him which are probably me. But even then i'll leave the bit at the bottom.

When said so soon after the words "small penis", "I'll leave the bit at the bottom" feels like it should mean something else...
