That decision lies with FishFreek or ReefRunner69 I think.

Ok, me and sunsplash have been thinking about this some.

If I was to write this I would have to toss the idea of a graphical map. I am just not that good at programming to get a location to auto place on a map image.

I could see me being able to write something that would take the locations from the profile and then count them up by state or country if its international. THen clicking on the state would list the member names that had that state as their location.

The only problem with that would be that the locations would have to be fixed. I could maybe work it so it took a full state name or the abbreviation.

Right now we have 181 members out of 360 that even have a location listed. So to get a good accurate list all members would have to disclose their location.

Of course if someone wants to work on writing a graphic map they can go right ahead as far as I am concerned. It would need to interface with PHP and mysql database if it as to use the location table.

If there is interested in what I described above I will try to develop this before the years close

Ok grant I did some more thinking about this on the way into work this AM.

This is what I have come up with. I think it will work very nicly.

We use the Location information in the profiles. This will require that all exisiting members be kind enough to put at a minimum their state or country info into the profile.

Then have a page that is layed out with a flat image of the world. People can click on a content to get an image of that contentent I will use the US as an example. You would click on the US and you would be taken to a 800x600 image of the US with the states outlined and labled. Next to the state name would be the number of members in that state. You could then click on the state name to get a list of the members and their location that match that particular state.

The member name could be a link to their profile.

Now, I can write this but it will take a little bit before I get started on it. If anyone want to take this on pleas PM me and I can get you links to this forum software so you can develop it. I also plan on posting this request with some forum developers that I know about. If there is interest they will take this request and run with it to write something up jiffy quick.

I think this would be neat too! A visual picture can be very useful for those who like to see where in the world everyone lives.

Well grant when its written I would like to release it out for the rest of the web community to be able to make use of it. Unlike retail software most of the stuff developed for the web is called 'open source' or GPL. This allows people to obtain and use software for free.

Hey you cant knock that can ya? In fact the bulk of this site is made up of open source programs. I am proud to say the ONLY thing that was not free on this site was the chat script.

In advance of me working on this I made the Location field a required field. So all new members must have this filled out. All existing members who have a blank location will have to enter a location if/when they edit their profile.

Examples of prefered location format is (Virginia, Staunton VA, VA USA) This should work for everyone global. If your in a country that does not have states then you could just fill out UK or Engaland or Rome Italy.

When the map is complete there will be a spot for all the unknown locations to go. So if someone fills the location field out incorrectly or puts fake info then they will be listed in this unknowns listing.

Can't wait to see this, I'm more than glad that the idea entered my head ! I still think it'll be a great & fun addition to the already best aquarium site on the net. 8)

At this point its not in development. I got busy with other items and never moved forward on developing this.
