Thanks for the useful feature. I updated my location on map.
(don't find any member nearby in Taipei, though...)

I'm rolling out a new member-only feature that will make it easier for you to find fellow Pentax users in your area:

Worldwide Pentax User Map -

Adding your location is optional and you can choose the degree of accuracy you want (I don't recommend pinning your home address, for example!). If you set your location (even if you decide not to make it public), the map will show you the 10 nearest members with public locations.

The map is accessible via the "forum" dropdown menu on both the homepage and the forum, as well as through a link at the top of the member list and through the sidebar of each member's profile.

So far, only one other Pentaxian in my state.

We currently have about 280 members on the map, which is less than 5% of the users who have posted in the past month. I'm sure you'll come across more soon!

Try using another browser. Once you see the map you should be able to add your location.
I tried it again today, same browser, Mac OS safari, and it worked. Thanks for your response. Now Delaware is on the map.

Added myself to the closest intersection. I'm a bit too rural to be brave enough to show *exactly* where I live!

I've indicated my parole officer's house. He'll be able to tell you where I am because of my ankle bracelet.

It's kind of fun seeing some familiar names on the map.

Is there anyway to find a specific user on the map? I feel like this would be a boon to the Travelling k1000. It might make the shipping planning easier. That of course would require everyone signed up for that, to post their location.
