I don't know what an ipad is.  You might try it with a regular computer if you get the chance.

There's no instructions on adding a point, the only choices on the left panel are set default location, and add your business location to google maps, so I'm stumped. PS Google has never recognized my address, I use something nearby when getting driving directions, if that matters. PS - I logged in no problem.

Never mind, got it, not sure what I did, except went back a page or something. Boy, no one near me, except Toronto.

Log in to the map, zoom into your location (or click on your name on the left), then click on "Edit".
You can then click & drag the marker to wherever you want.
Then "Save".

We had a new, 1-post user post a 1-word reply to this thread, "congratulations".

It smelled like spam to me, so I copied the username and sent if off to Justin for deletion, then I deleted the post.

Justin asked if there was anything I could do to tighten security on the map, so I deleted the instructions in the OP and changed the password.

I'll be happy to share the password with one or two other trusted regulars, but from now on, all new additions to the map will have to be done through me or one of the other volunteers.

See the OP for details.

I am still the only member with logon information to this map, and if anything were to happen to me that would be lost, so I need a couple of volunteers to accept co-responsibility with me.  No big deal, but I keel over suddenly, it would become an issue.

Also, I removed everyone's street addresses that put them on there when we had open placement.
I don't think it is such a good idea for that information to be public.

And lastly, who is our member that lives in South Africa?
He made his user name the "Durbanville", which is the city where he lives.
I would like to put his correct handle in there.

I changed it to Danie.  He can always correct me if it's not him.  Thanks!
