Pentax User Map : New Forum Feature!

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 - PentaxForums.com

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.

I get no map in Firefox or Edge. I do get the other information and button, though.

Is it possible to have my location on the map be different than what I write in my profile?

I'd like that.

You can drag the pin to any location in Google's map of the world that you like, what this doesn't do is automatically set the pin to the location in your profile. You probably want to zoom in a fair bit before choosing a resting place for your pin, otherwise you might up in Oklahoma.

Submitted my approximate location. I guess there's no GPS tracking included in this feature, so I will have to update it if I move too far away from the set location.

Very sketchy coverage as yet. It will be interesting to see it fill in.

Someone leaked on me. Who would have guessed that I lived in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean? I thought it was a very deep secret.

Nice option.
Thanks,
