    Ive read post after post of people asking where others live, to pick up eggs or chicks. Ive seen on other forums where they have a map of the US with little dots to show where everyone lives. I know we have a gazillion members now, so maybe we could do it by individual state? That way when people post something for sale, we could check the maps and see exactly where they are in the state to see if driving is feasible, or to see if any other members are closer or whatever. It wouldnt have to be an exact address map, just a general city map.

    I know I keep seeing members from Florida, and when they mention where they live, often I dont know where that is and I have to go to Mapquest to see where that particular city is, to see if its close to me.

    Dang it... I tried to add to that map, and it crashed! [​IMG] My photo is there, but it won't let me move it to the right location. It thinks I'm in Kansas somewhere, I think. [​IMG] Now the site won't open for me...
