Hello Everyone. I was in the chat with a few guys when we came up with the idea to put a member map on the site. Macrosill this is geared towards you ;) Here is the link to a possible module for vbulletin that maps out where people live .

Tell me what you think :D

There is a frapper map for Vixen users but if you guys want some closer to home I see no reason we could not do it. However I am working on something big for the site as a whole and would ask for everyone to be patient and allow me to hold off on some future mods for a couple weeks.

Alright, I will give you a hint. Look at this. (http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com/joomlatest10/index.php) I am testing some things out for my personal site and hope to incorporate them into DIYC as well.

This might also go with another forum post: http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2580

First off, before anyone gets the wrong idea, I'm not posting this to promote my own site, but merely as a concept that could work for DIYC.

People sign up, put in their address, it maps it on a google map, you can upload up to two pictures, etc.... I'm in the process of re-working a few things for 2008. This might be a good foundation that DIYC can use to track it's members. I'm willing to share code :-)- not that it's hard to figure out anyways.

It also has PicNik integration that lets users crop/adjust their uploaded photos.
