I've already added a couple of Events and Meets from this forum to give examples of what information to include.
The map is editable by anyone with a Google account. You don't need a Google Mail e-mail address, you can set up a Google account using your own existing e-mail address. Once signed in, you can locate your meet/event, stick a 'push pin' into the map, and enter all the relevant location. Save the info, and the new push pin will be available to view by anyone seeing the map.
If it's a 'one-off' event [not a regular monthly meet], it would be useful if you could delete the push pin once the event has passed, to save the map from becoming too cluttered.
By clicking the "Save To My Places" above the map info on the left-hand column, you can link back to the map from your Google account at anytime, without having to find the link here.
This should be a useful tool for anyone wanting to know about meets or events in their local area, or just interested to see how far away an upcoming show is.
Cool idea, should be nice for checking out what's fairly local.
How do I stick a pin in it? I'm signed into my google account, but I can't work out how to actually put the pin in the map :S
Firstly, click the Edit button at the top of the left-hand column. It should be just above and to the right of the map title.
When you've clicked Edit, three little icons should appear in the map itself, at the top left next to the map navigation tools.
The centre one is a push pin. Click it to highlight, and your cursor should turn into a pushpin. Click the location to drop it, and then fill in the details. If you can make any web links clickable, that would be great.
This is a good idea, I like it.Do you think there's any way of getting a little pic up in the box when you click on the pin?Could be quite cool.Of the relevant meet I mean, not just flowers or something!
Hi VIP, I'm grateful you've included the Motornutz chippy meet on the map but is there any chance you could please remove the "CRUISE" bit from the title, as we had trouble with chavs at the last meet and the word cruise seems to attract them like flies to curse word. I'd do it myself mate but i can't edit that post. Would really appreciate it. TA
can you just confirm the location for the sheffield monday meet is correct, i'm planning on going to my first tomorrow if it is on and need the address and i thought it had moved to meadowhall farm "which i don't know where is".
