Title: Tip - Member Map
Post by: Danno on February 22, 2011, 09:28:44 PM
NEW FEATURE!    NEW FEATURE!     NEW FEATURE!     NEW FEATURE!     NEW FEATURE!     NEW FEATURE!

Go to the MEMBER MAP tab to view ABOG member's locations around the USA & Canada.

To enter your own location, look below the map and it will allow you to place your own pin. Pin your house if you dare or just pin your home city,  favorite boat launch, favorite fishing grounds, etc.

This will help everyone get to know the other ABOG members that are in your neighborhood.

Now I just need to figure out how to add places of interest like the Arima Boat factory (which is where this map centers) and other Arima related locations.

Enjoy!

after you place your pin on the map, be sure to hit the 'update profile' button (bottom right of page) or it won't stick.  Please don't ask how I know this (only took three times). :doh:

Looks as if most of the pinned so far are from "Gods Country" IE the NW.  I'm not sure if we should include those Oregon guys with that title though. :jester: :jester:

Hmmm... I don't know but we call my area the Adirondack Mountain Region "God's Country" and I seem to be the only member pinned in this area of the country. So maybe we have a debate here on where is Gods country?

But anyway I do feel kind of lonely over here on the east side.

Russ, my map is cooler than yours.  If you zero down on me and go to satellite you can see my house, my truck, the lawn furniture in the back yard.  Zero in on yours and it points to a grove of trees.  Mine is really neat. But its OK Russ, the nerds are as follow:  Danno - piece of dirt beside a road, Croker - bunch of trees, 3Wgt - some one's back yard.  I win.

Woot!  The fine folks at Simple Machines Forum taught me how to add custom pin locations to the Google Map. I've added Arima Marine Int. I'll be adding each of the Arima Dealers as I get time. I hope to eventually be able to add logos and custom pins for non-member locations.

Yes the member map is really cool, especially when you use the satellite views. I pinned mine to where I normally do most my boating and fishing and in the general area of where I usually launch on Lake Champlain. My summer camp is located close by to this area.

OK Woody

You win.  I told the location protocol to pin the mess you have been making where the boat is currently stored.  It did a good job....   :applause: 

Now I wonder if it will follow me when I go fishing???  :shrug9:  Don't want everyone to see my 'secret holes'  :facepalm: 

Of course if you are along it won't matter 'cause we never catch anything on those outings.  Maybe you should think about changing your handle to Jonah???  :whistle:

P.S.  Where those other Canuk's anyway?  A bunch of lower 48 folks missing too.

Hey, I'm a Canuck ... maybe a long time enjoying the lower 48's  ... but I signed up.

Russ, yep, I see your Arima's home, your truck and even Cooper frolicking in the yard. You have to look real close, squint and believe.

I'm trying FE. The fine folks at Smart Machines Forum have provided lots of help but it seems this portion of the Member Map would require some involved programming and that means time on their part to figure it out. They usually want to get paid for that type of effort.  They have noted that it will likely be a feature in a future revision but don't have a date for that yet.

I have most of the Arima Delaers in except a few in the NE. I figured I would start with the PNW where the majority of sales are and then work outward. Some of the dealers don't even have a web page so I'm reluctant to even put them on the map. How can you have a business without a web page in 2011?
Title: Re: Tip - Member Map
Post by: fishing eagle on February 28, 2011, 02:32:48 PM
Ok Dan you will have to keep the green pins until they do a programming update. Yes I am surprised that some of the dealers on the east coast do not do more to advertise their marina and Arima boats.
Title: Re: Tip - Member Map
Post by: fishing eagle on March 16, 2011, 04:34:00 PM
Just checking out the member's map again Danno. What happened to the northeast and Arima dealers? Come on I know there isn't many of os Arima owners over here... but with some representation we might get more. There are 2 dealers in MA and 1 each in VT, CT and NY, where are the pins?

I am sure you are working on it... but just a friendly reminder... in case. Also I feel all alone.

I know, I know. I've been real busy lately with family stuff (25th wedding aniversary, kid's solo music competition, etc) and springer salmon fishing. I need to get those guys on the map. I'm also hoping to talk with Don so that I can make sure the companies I put on the map are up to date.

Woo hoo!   :dance:

All of the Arima Dealers noted on the Arima web site are now mapped and we have a lot of members that have their locality mapped as well.

I know there's a lot of lurking members on this site. They have accounts but don't post much which is cool. Even if you don't post, drop a pin with an area near you home or favorite fishing spot or boat launch. It's time to fill up the map!

Looks like I'm the first to drop a pin in Alaska. I dropped it at Whittier harbor, since that's where I launch. Of course, that's about 100 road miles from my house...

All

We have more than 330 members.  Many have recently joined us.  I took a look at our member map and find it is way short of 300 member location indicators.

So, let me encourage all the members to get themselves 'on the map' so to speak.  At least to the town where you live.  If it looks too crowded in your area, simply zoom in.

Many of us find having a member located on the map assists us in making meaningful responses to questions and often results in folks close to each other offering to come over to help out.

We now number about 400.  For those who wish to do so, putting yourself on the map, so to speak, helps others near you  to connect.

We recommend you not pin your actual location, just someplace a mile or so away, local launch, favorite restaurant or watering hole, church... whatever

In case some of the new folks have missed this:  Please pin your approximate location on the map (click on members map in the blue bar at the top of the page) so we have a general idea where you are located.  As noted above, we do not recommend you pin your exact house location for obvious reasons.  Within a couple of miles or so is really helpful when discussing some things.

Every once in a while we need to remind members to put themselves on the map.

Don't put the pin on your house,  just the community, your favorite launch something to let us know the general area where you are. 

It really helps when offers of fishing, getting together, and the like are being discussed.

Please take the time to put your pin on the members map  (click on 'members map' found in the bar across the top of the forum page).
