I got as far as placing my chip on the map, but then it wanted too much info so I gave up.

Yep, asking too much personal info for my taste too.

It seems like there should be more Amiga users just from Amiga.org! I added my 2 cents...
I just left some fields blank - it accepted my addition...

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.

To repeat something I wrote elsewhere about this:

Regarding personal information: For example in finland a website is mandated by law (http://www.finlex.fi/en/laki/kaannokset/1999/en19990523.pdf) to maintain a privacy policy document (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Privacy_policy) which will explain the contact information of the registry maintainer, the specifics about the actual information maintained, the purpose for maintaining the registry, and to who and under what circumstances can the information be disclosed.

I'm sure having such document around would alleviate some fears people have about disclosing their private information.
Title: Re: Anyone STILL not on the Google Amiga Map?

I generally don't have a problem providing personal info when there's a good reason, but they really don't seem to have one for requesting all that info. Phone number? Are they gonna give me a call to make sure I put my marker in the right spot on the map?

But anyway, they were nice enough to accept fake information.

Hi Save,

Well, It could be just a coincidence, but ever since "signing" up on the map (yes I did put legit e-mail) I am getting a ton more spam now, and now its all "address" personally. Stuff like OEM software and ink jet refills.
Like I said maybe just a coincedence.
Sad thing is the map puts me about 5-10 km from where I actually live, and there is no way to edit the info.

You can drag your little chip and drop it whereever you like.  Mine is exactly where I put it.  Maybe you only get once chance though.

You'll need to use the "Log in to make changes" option on the site and have it send you a password reset.

edit: how about that, it lets you change your point description but it doesn't seem to let you move or delete your point.

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)

I haven't used any of your addresses yet, and as I have stated before, I will not spread any of the private information to anyone.

The e-mail address is needed when/if you want to change anything about your point - nothing else.
I might send you all  (addressed individually) a mail  once to tell you that you are able to change the info, and probably some reminder about to check/update your info once or twice a year.

email is easy to track to its source, so check your mail headers of the spam's you are blaming (or suspect) me for. Also, spam volume usually varies with weekdays, and time of day, because of the lot of kidnapped windos computers out there.

I get them too, but they are tossed away before they land at my mailbox (for my domain, I filter out about 500 spam messages each week (for only one valid address, all fake addresses are blocked before the mail is scanned).

Redo the first step ("find yourself", http://map.minimig.net/find_pos.php) and follow the instructions about zooming in and dragging the marker, then e-mail me coordinates you wish to use. If you send the email from the address you used for signing up, I will be able to find you, otherwise, it will be a problem..

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.

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.

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! ;-)

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.

You must be excessively naive. Who is minimig.net? You don't know, anonymous registrar (below). Why do they need your name and email to locate you on a map? They don't, so why are they collecting that information - you don't know. How is the data being stored? Who has access to it? You don't know.

You might as well print out flyers with your name, address and email on them and toss them about town.

@ Boot_WB: :D

@ jorkany: I've never really understood what use is when you know somebody's name and address. I mean you could go around town writing down names you see on doorbells - what's the difference? Now if you know something about the people who live there, that's different. But I don't know how can anyone use the fact that you're an Amiga fan against you. I'd be happy if they put my name and address into some contextual advertising campaign list and sent me ads for new Amiga HW :)
Yes, you also fill in your email address, but I have one for exactly this type of thing so what...

I'm on the map. I also dislike the fact of giving away my email. But considering the scope of people possible to be put out there' I suppose it's not a big deal.

But if it wasn't about Amiga... never

I'm using a MorphOS based system and therefore do not qualify as an amigan (at least not in the strictest terms).

BTW - I hear a lot of derission on the idea that Amigas still might be used for every day computing. On my machine my main tasks are internet browsing, word processing, and e-mail.
An original Amiga could be set up to do all these tasks. In fact, since I use Goggle Docs for wordprocessing, an Amiga would not be to dissimilar to what I'm using now.
A little slower and with a smaller color palette, but overall quite similar.

That just occured to me recently and suddenly I find myself feeling much more supportive of the holdouts.

Hey Franko! You're right its still a valid platform.

Time for some words from the map owner...

It's been a while since I worked on the new admin interface for the map, but I finally got (took) some time to make the changes needed to make it useable for the 1200+ users that have signed up.

I will soon send a selected bunch of users on the map the address of the admin interface I have been working on, and these users are free to test the interface before I release it to everyone.

Instead of double posting images, you can visit the Amigaworld.net thread linked on the map page to see some snapshot images of the admin interface as it was about a year ago (pretty much unchanged since, just adding the missing systems page and removing some debug stuff).

Whats still missing from the admin pages (or actually the map) is the functions that allows messaging between logged in users.

If some other people than those I have selected for testing is interested in participating in the process (or need to change anything), please send me a PM, and I will send you the link to the admin interface.

You don't have to enter any personal info. You can just click on any random spot in your city and enter "Anonymous" as your name, that way you've still contributed to the map.
