Mr M, have you been introduced to our fantabulous Fluther Map ? Not everyone’s on there, but we occasionally bring it to the Fluther’s attention so it can be updated by new users.

tinyfaery's avatar

Huh. I never knew about that map, and it has so few users on it. How can we update it?

@tiny – and anyone wanting to add themselves:
Check the thread I linked above, it also discusses some user issues. In short: log in to google, go to the map, find your location and drop a pin and make a comment that that’s your location.

you’ll have to click the “edit” button, then drag one of the blue placemarkers from the toolbar to your location

That map is cool. How do I put a pin in NY?

SuperMouse's avatar

Southern California. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

I really live in Omaha, but I am a Southern California native and I’ve been here less than two years.

Harp's avatar

Zoom into your location, click the button that says “edit”, click the blue placemarker symbol up on the toolbar and drag it to your location. Voila.

I can’t find an “edit” button or a blue placemarker symbol. Do I have to register and sign in?

gailcalled's avatar

Can see the map, all the flags and remarks, however.

Fun fluther facts:
From what I can tell, (and going by who has dropped a pin on the map) ebeneezer and I might be the closest two jellies (who don’t know each other or aren’t family). It’s a really close race between us and the ben/AlenaD distance. A close third place finish is Andrew and the WTF-Scrowell household.

There is me, MacBean and someone who lives in Troy, New York. And EzraGlenn and Mirza’s younger brother just entered Bard College, down the road, as freshmen. Of course around here, a 30 minute drive is considered around-the-corner.

breedmitch's avatar

Ah yes, but the distances between ben/AlenaD and ebeneezer/breedmitch is about a mile in either case. And the Andrew/WTF-Scrowell distance seems to be under five miles “as the crow flies”, which means for LA, you can be there in just under 45 minutes. :)
Does Mirza’s brother fluther?

breedmitch's avatar

Is this creepy stalker-ish?

gailcalled's avatar

Row4food is the Troy, NY resident. Given the lack of traffic here and only two stoplights in a 20 mile stretch of road, we may be psychologically the same distances. Or is that stretching it? I’d rather drive my 30 minutes and see stunning views of the Catskill Mts.,
the Hudson River Valley, and the rolling hills of the Berkshires, Taconics, and Helderbergs (red-tailed hawks, snapping turtles, deer, blue herons)

Fluther should link that user map onto the site and try adding statistics (population, hours online, etc.) That would really help us “tap the collective” more specifically.

Considering the scale of things around here, I’m pretty sure osullivanbr and fabulous can’t me much more than “around the corner” from me :)

breedmitch's avatar

Seems to be ten miles or so. You guys should meet!

wildflower's avatar

Chances are we will next time I have an issue with my phone ;)

Mr_M's avatar

The edit button brings up the name of someone else. Do I edit that?

Harp's avatar

No, just ignore that. Click the blue placemarker icon, then click the location on the map where you want to put it. That will open a text box where you can enter your info.

Mr_M's avatar

I did it. You DO have to log in to google. I think someone tried to help me by making a Mr_M pin, only they didn’t tell me as far as I know. I deleted it since i made my own. Thanks anyway!

Harp's avatar

Whew! I had a hard time with it, too. Not intuitive!

gailcalled's avatar

When I first tried, I ended up living in Quebec; then I deled someone in Troy, NY and then replaced him Now I am close, I think.

Jesus, another from Columbus? This is starting to get pretty ridiculous.
Welcome, Jason. There’s about ten of us from Columbus.

Mr_M's avatar

That Fluther map is good and I encourage everyone to put their pin on it. It’s a good way of showing the time zones people come from and, when up to date, CAN reflect peak usage time periods. Usage times are good to know if you want to toss out a question when you think most people would be on to see it.
