Perhaps there may be some interest in tagging members of the FW community on a map. Check out the link here. Financial reasons to interact with nearby FW members could include local tax discussions, financial reform efforts, bank deals, networking, education, community service, housing markets, etc.

If you are interested in contributing, please provide as much of the following info as you would like:

City:
State:
Country:
Occupation:
Sex:
Age:

Also, I will add information to the map. If this catches on it would be nice to add a few people as collaborators. Please let me know if you're interested. I checked out Frappr but wasn't too impressed. If there are other recommendations where members can enter their own info that would be great.

*****************************
Replied on page 12 with this:

There have been some concerns on here of privacy. You are free to not provide information if you do not want to. Additionally you can add your birthday if you wish so others down the road will know how old you are. I just thought it would be cool to see who lives close to each other and aside from that the particular details could be obtained in a PM.

If there are coders interested in designing a google maps API link or a google mapplet please let know. I'm a computer engineer with a CS minor, however this is a bit above my head right now to learn (installing APIs, libraries, setting up public DBs, etc.).

Three ideal solutions I have seen in order of preference:

  • Design a web form where users enter fields and it adds a placemark to the map
  • Design a mapplet that allows collaborator permissions. I have not allowed everyone to collaborate due to potential and/or inadvertent data deletion.
  • Design a web form that allows input into valid Google import file (KML, KMZ, or GeoRSS). This file could be manually uploaded periodically.


Large amounts of placemarkers will slow down Google eventually. A concern that needs addressed if this grows to above a few thousand...click here for some more information.

There may be a site similar to Frappr that does this, however I found Frappr not as visually appealing as Google.

*For now, it would be nice couple of people to volunteer to collaborate to keep the map up to date. PM me if you're interested.

Folks-

I hate to break it to you but this was a dead idea a long time ago. You can stop posting your information.

I already have enough cheap bastards as friends.

This is probably just some grandiose scheme of scottybweyy's to rob us while we are out at Black Friday.

Haha nah just curious really. Seems like everyone on here is from DC or CA.

Throw a dart at the map, and where ever it hits, you can claim that spot for me. I don't tell people too much about me, cuz I tend to piss people off and don't want them hunting me down (and then hurting my cats, or vandalizing my property in the middle of the night, when they CORRECTLY figure out they shouldn't mess with me, ie., mano e mano!). Its been a while since I killed anyone....
