Idea for the gathering forum
    #4277587 - 06/09/05 10:01 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hey guys.. just wondering if we could try this idea in the gathering forum.. or at least give some advice and comments on this idea.

What if we had a world map sorta thing, where you could zoom in on your locality and see what shroomerites lived around you?

of course putting yourself on the map would be totally voluntary for those afraid of LEO's and shit, but for those willing to meet others and stuff it would be a great way to find out what shroomerites live around you and who you may be able to meet...


ideas, comments, suggestions??

I wonder if that would be hard to get working...because I mean, when you write in a location you write it in your own words. So there's NY, NYC, NY State, people write things all their own ways.

So would they have like a drop-down list that you could select from in the part of My Home where you edit your profile?


So that said anyway, I think it's a great idea but THEN I remember this one dude who AIM'ed me out of the blue saying he was on Shroomery. I'd never talked to him, but he noticed that I was in NY and essentially just AIM'ed me looking for a hookup.

People would probably get a lot more of that if it made it easier to just find a bunch of people around you.

There is a website around which has a map of the world and you can put a little pin on it and just type in your screen name etc. I'll look for it

I think it would be kind of cool.. I mean exact locations wouldnt be in there I wouldnt imagine.. unless you really were just looking for trouble.

I'm not sure how you could go about doing this though. Would be some crazy php and gd rendering I would imagine. Anno likes to program things like this that would make my head spin :laugh: lets all make anno do it!
