They never added me.  :(

It shows AmiKit being in Eugene, OR, in the United States.  

Is that the same AmiKit that posts on Amiga.org and Amigaworld.net?  As their user profiles on both sites say they are in Europe.


Would be great to find another user in Eugene, but with me still not being added, and Amikit showing up on the wrong continent, I'm starting to doubt the validity/accuracy of this map.

PM me what you think is wrong.. (I could have been too fast on the 'delete-finger')

I have submitted my info. and now I cannot see the map. :)

Explain.. because I can see the map..

It might have been that you entered/modified the coordinates to something that made the preview go bad (this could happen, but should not affect the real map with validated users). If this was the case, I have repaired your broken coordinates, and you are on the map..

If you entered a valid e-mail address you can request a password set/reset link, and after that you will be able to log in and preview your point on the map.

Fixed (some time ago), had same problem with Deutchland / Germany (and even earlier US/USA/United States, UK/England/United Kingdom).

geez whats the big bloody deal ? just put generic info people ! the important thing is putting  the right city you live in for pete sake...put a street name a km away from you LOL

There is a slight problem with putting the pin location at a too generic spot. Pins at the same location will overlap each other, so only the last one will be seen.

As for the address information, give me what information you want. I will not visit you or send you a snail-mail, but if you put in the correct street (or the street pointed out by the pin), I will trust you enough to accept the submission.

working on it .. You will be able to change your point (but not as easy as when setting it in the first place), change public info and private fields (I will even let you wipe everything out if you wish once I have your point validated)
 
for now, only the Amiga systems can be changed (remove, undo remove, and add)

Right... I wasn't able to change the public information...  
 
Please let us know when these changes are available. THANK YOU!

Why is this so complex?  Should be able simply to enter city/state/country and nothing else.  Seems to be more of a hassle than it's worth?

Can I throw all these suggestions in for people to chew on:

Perhaps expand on this idea to include such features to allow users to create, find, save and share; routes [events/shows], sightseeing [geotag photos/ panoramio], Amiga galleries [ie: Flickr/ link back to user_cp].

Maybe add website addresses or links to [amiga.org/ et al] user profiles, msn, icq, email etc.

Include the Google 'MORE' for Photos/Videos [youtube accounts], Wikipedia, Webcams.

User search tool.

Then your project could look really pretty:

http://www.panoramio.com/map/#lt=0.000000&ln=0.000000&z=16&k=2&a=1

and when Google has all your relevant information we can all interact using Google Wave, yay! ;-)

The initial purpose was to make it a map for minimig owners, but it's now for owners of all systems. To be able to use the map for MiniMig users, I've created a filter, which shows only MiniMig owners, SAM owners or resellers.


Hi,

How about one for A1 users?

I can see it now. I had to use something other than IE 8 to see it. I am not for sure if IE 7 and earlier had a problem.

Asking for way way too much information.

I've tried twice to add myself, and both time the "PITA" alarm goes off, and my privacy filter kicks in.

You should be asking for the minimum amount of information required for the purpose.  Doesn't matter that you're not going to "use" this information, or send this to anyone else, or whatever.  If the purpose doesn't require it, then you don't need it.

You should be asking for a handle/name, a location, an email address and password. That's it.

A little paranoid, aren't we? I don't think that being an Amiga fan and related info is something abusable, I would rather be worried about other places that require you to enter your name...
