Member Map?

Would anyone else like to see a member map? I've seen some 'how to's' to create an open map so that those on the forum could add their location at http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-...e-google-maps/. I think it would be fun to see where in the world the people whose comments I enjoy are located. It might also be fun to be able to connect with others in my area for rides. Would it be possible for the moderators to add a sticky for this?

Is anyone else interested in this? Please comment if you are.

I think it's a great idea! I bought my bike a little over a month ago, and I'm always looking for somebody to go riding with!

The idea is good, Daisy, but maybe problematic.

In this day and age, many folks are concerned about personal information. Some would consider connecting their name with a location as an invasion of privacy. A whole lot of folks that visit the forum are lurkers, and (observing member descriptions) a number of members either leave their location blank or are non-specific (myself included).

It would work and be pretty cool if it was on a voluntary basis. Maybe one of the administrators could come up with a way to incorporate it?

Of course it would not only be your choice as to whether or not you put your name on it, but you can also choose how specific to be. You could post your exact location, just your city, or even just your state. I just thought it would be fun to see the membership.

I like the idea. Remaining totally anonymous online is pretty tough, but if desired the last name and street address could easily be omitted...
