Rally Map

A rally map is a great idea. BMW motorcycle owners group has a map of all their US rallys. You can take a quick look and see what is reasonably close to you.

You can always do a search, based on location, of the member list to find out who is near you, or near a location you're going to. Go to the member list and do an advanced search and select the state or province. To get more specific, you could even type in the town.

There are several little widgets to add a member map and we have tried several. Each one has been pulled down after bugs were discovered that could not be resolved. One, as I recall, was actually a security hazard to the forum, opening the door for unwanted malicious scripts.

Periodically, we look for solutions and will continue but as pointed out, in the meantime the member list is sortable by location.

I've always wished for a map of members, too. Especially for courtesy parking searching. Yes, you can search by city, but what if you search for "pittsburgh" and get no results, but someone lives in Bethel Park (close to pittsburgh) but now you've missed that person because you've searched for pittsburgh. So, I end up searching by state, but then I have to put each city into google maps and find out if they are near my route or not. It would be a valuable resource, I think, to have such a map function and then be able to click on to map to get the user's name to come up. Anyone not wanting to be on the map could simply not enter their city in their user info.

We're on the members' map, but now young one, you must find the location of the map....

Would also add to the interest if member's pin color could designate overnight courtesy parking.

Another problem with a forum generated members location map, is that I think a good number of registered members are not active participants here. If a map were to be generated, I'd think you'd want it to reflect that segment of the forum membership that actually participates on a regular basis.
