Tank I don't think you're working anywhere like hard enough keeping this forum going  :sleep:, and I'd hate you to get bored, so I'm going to suggest a new project to keep you involved. :computerangry:

How about another map, this time showing where members' layouts represent?
(To get you started, mine is Pirmasens, Pfalz, Germany).

Nice idea, but where on earth would we situate all our fictitious layouts - I guess mine might be in Narnia :)

As my stock is a mix of several countries I was thinking of basing my layout in the UN Protectorate of Atlantis.

hmmm if you zoom all the way out there are three sets of countries showing up. Must be alternate realities....................................

Great idea!  I'll set it up in the future.

I'm struggling to keep up with work at the moment, and working on here, so there is a bit of a delay in me setting up everyone on the map.  Keep them coming.   :thumbsup:

Members Global Map

I know some of you are aware of the Members Global Map, for those who don’t it is a map where members can PM their Postcode to me and I will add them to the map.

Being on the map can help locate members when organising a get together in a specific area or if driving to an exhibition or show and looking to share travel expenses.

You may even find help with a problem is close at hand and it can never hurt to have more friends.

Your forum name and pointer are all that appears on the map, no personal details are asked for only your Postcode.

Please consider asking to be included on the map.

Thanks John.
