Thumbs up Google Map! It's Here!!!!!

The much talked about, much anticipated Google Map is now available on all forum skins! Similiar to the other mapping system we have, you can pinpoint your location for all to see!

It's a little tricky, but once you get used to it, it's really neat! There is a map version, and a satellite version to tinker with.

You'll find it on your navbar under the forum banner.

*hint* Be very mindful of how much info you want to give out. I was actually able to see my home with the vehicles in the driveway...I opted just to pinpoint my City instead.

In a couple of weeks we'll remove the map application located above the speak easy.

I didn't see where to enter information. Interesting thing too, it looked like it logged me out of the forum.

Ok, I figured it out, you do have to re-login to get the link to where you can set the pin.

I feel like I'm blind....I don't see it either...

ah..got it...It's not on the red2black skin.

Change your skin colour Cat. It will appear on the other ones under the forum banner at the top, where FAQ, etc. are.

Ok, i'll update the red2black skin. I did say it was going to be unsupported as it will be incompatible with future versions of this software but hey what the hell.
