    I had a rare thought (rare in the fact that I actually think at all :)) How about a page where our user locations are pinned on a global map. By city I mean, not by street address. Then if a group of people find they are in the same city they could organize a get together or something. At the very least it will show how the membership of BBF is spread around the world.

    Nothing for anyone where I happen to live. No reason to come through here unless you are either going up to Sydney from Melbourne, or coming to Melbourne from Sydney.

    Red, sometimes you don't need a reason to go somewhere! I'm sure there something there to! Master Fahy

    This week that has certainly been true. Left Argentina on Tuesday morning for Santiago in Chile. Then flew to Colombia on Wednesday. I'll be here until 31 December and then it's an overnight flight to Rio to start 2013 in the sunshine :)

    I've added a member map to https://www.blackbeltforums.com/usermap/. It shows where admin/moderators, register members and guests are located.

    The view option lets you see your own position and you can zoom into any location in the map. You can also change to a satellite view. :)

    I think there was a mistake on Google's part for my location - I'm a bit more north than they show ...

    I just copied and pasted from the original, painted it blue and voila! :D

    I use an ancient open-source program called PhotoFiltre - it's nowhere near as jazzy as Photoshop but it does what I need it to do.

    Don't worry - there's really only one thing you need to know about the 'Net -

    People always tell the truth.

    Not many of us in the US? Am I the only one on the east coast?

    No, you're certainly not alone on the east coast. If I remember correctly the map shows who's actually logged in when you look at it. So you picked a lonely time of day is all:)
