It would be really cool if more folks "pinpointed" themselves on the map. I know there are lots of people in my area, for instance, that are not showing up. Per Carol, in the original post, here is the link:

Pretty simple to add yourself, and makes identifying and hooking up with a hunting buddy a bit easier. So come on, gang, let's all play!!

I can't figure it out. I put my location in, a yellow pinpoint pops up but I don't know what to do next.

Click on the upside down tear drop to be able to place a new point. Then, click on the location you want to place the indicator and edit the title. After you're done with that, just click "Save" and you should be there.

So the map was set to "anyone can edit" and someone with too much time on their hand changed all the pin names to " and put graphic pictures all over the map.

I apologize for this as I didn't anticipate someone from here being enough of a jerk/child to destroy the map due to it being open to anyone to edit.

I'd really like to have a map available to help people find members that are near them to meet up for group hunts/events/etc.

I've started a new G+ map and my thought is that it will be set up so anyone can see but only a few people will be able to add pins and edit the map. Basically I'd like to start a new pinned thread for this map and have people PM one of the map moderators to get any information added to that map that they'd like.

If an owner/admin/moderator could let me know what they think I'd appreciate it. I'd be willing to be one of the people that helps to maintain the map and add new people to it.

Thank You.
The map was hacked last night and flooded with pornographic/offensive images.

I started a new map that can be seen by anyone but cannot be edited by anyone to prevent this from happening again. If you're interested in having a pin on the map all you have to do is PM me the location that you'd like the pin placed and what information you want on it.

This thread needs to be deleted and started over. I tried over and over on the early links on this thread and they all result in error messages. I think it's a great idea to see where the members of this forum are located. It will help some who think there alone in an area to hook up with other members to go out detecting. There's a lot of us out there, but many will not go this far into a thread to find the right link. Delete the thread and start over.

Agreed. But do not delete the old one, just lock it and start a new one.

And for the location, every one can decide to fill in the information to the profile.
