I seem to have 2 pins. \I thought the first had not 'taken' but repeated the addition. Now I cannot remove either, when I click on the either pin I only get a from here to here option. No other options at all.
What am I doing wrongly?

HI All,

Just a few words of caution.  Those of you that have mobile phones with camera's built in and that have GPS enabled should be aware that the GPS information is embedded in any photographs that you take.  If you take a picture at your home, that picture can be used to not only discover where you are but also who you are !

Whilst this map idea is attractive and does show the geographic distribution of MEM members, consider carefully the information you place there.

 
Best Regards:  Baron.

Best put a location but not too accurate  ;).

Most of us are on different continents so the odd few miles out makes no difference

Mine, for example, is within 10 km of my actual residence - that's a pretty big circle to search for those with evil intent.

To prove a point to my daughter I took a picture she emailed me and loaded it into Irfanview, an excellent, free-download photo manipulator.

Clicking on the Info tab, I was offered the option of showing the location at which the photo was taken on Google maps.  It did so very precisely.

Another reason to detest cell phones. [I'm on volume 3 now.]

Looks like the Eastern States of the land of Oz are well represented, don't we have any Oz members in Qld or W.A.?

If you zoom in on me then love the lake, going fishing, they're on the bite  :P

Perhaps that's why some call them cell phones. In Oz, because we're such a law abiding mob, they are known as mobiles.

We do, but they are being shy or something.

Some of you seem to be very wary of saying where you live (the actual address) or placing the 'pin' within a couple of meters where you reside.
Is it you are up to something we shouldn't know about?  :lolb:
