    This kind of topic may be in the backlogs of the members lounge , but I don't want to look for it.

    So where does everyone live ?

    I encourage everyone to vote on this , it would be nice to see what percentage of the forum comes from each of these continents.

    Traditionally the UK doesn't regard itself as "Europe" :grin:
    There was a newspaper headline many years ago (before I was born even!) that went:

    English Channel covered by fog: Continent cut off


    which gives some idea of the British mindset. When I'm required to state my nationality on anything official I put either "English" (and a lot of forms don't have that option nowadays) or "human" - but that has been disputed :lol:

    I don't have the specs right handy, but someone on AHF recently started a Frappr map. You could do something similar here?

    It's interesting, because it's an interactive map, and each member that signs up gets a little flag at their location. It's a quick visual reference on locations.

    Not so much national pride in my case, more pointing out the stupidity of a "book-keeping census-taking mindset".
    Although "Englishman" does have a certain "cachet", we have a reputation to uphold, old boy. :lol:
    My reasoning is that I'm human, but if they're going to start classifying peole then it's English rather than British, since they tend to have Scots and Welsh on a lot.
    Well, that and a good dose of bloody-mindedness, there's a lot of fun in finding flaws in a system that's supposedly capable of catering for all eventualities.
    I had an application form once that tried to be jolly and friendly, and under the Forename/ Surname section it had "Usually known as" so that they could pretend to be on first-name terms on your first day/ at the interview. I wrote in "Highly varied and largely irrelevant. I don't care what you call me as long as you make it clear it's me you're talking to".
    Strangely enough I didn't even get the interview... :grin:

    No, this is something different.

    This is the URL for the map AHF uses:

    http://www.frappr.com/axishistoryforum


    Now, I'll see if I can't learn a little more about starting one.

    Okay, I got as far as the front page of the site. Perhaps one of the admin would be better to start such a map. It looks like all you do is sign up, and start plotting!

    Roel? Ricky?

    On another website that I frequently visit we have a map of members locations which is powered by the following host... http://www.bravenet.com/

    Yes, but I don't trust Bravenet - in my experience, you'll end up being bombarded with pop-ups, which is why I dropped them years ago.

    I briefly belonged to forum on bravenet, and there was a problem with pop-ups. Not insurmountable, but irritating nonetheless.

    Our forum isn't on Bravenet. Just the map thingy. Maybe that why I haven't had problems with Pop ups. I hate the flipping things. :kill:

    Well I'm on, but it's put the marker about three miles from my exact location. Unless they've lied to me all along about where I live... :grin:

    I don't live where the marker has put me either....I can't seem to change it, it keeps insisting I live somewhere else!

    I find it very tricky to pinpoint the location you want , you know. Like I go up and it goes to far up , I click down and it goes to far down.
