I just checked and can't find myself on the map. Not sure which city I was traveling in when it grabbed my IP, but it certainly wasn't my home town.
Can I opt out of the map?
The map does not have any way to search for users. I searched the database that is used to generate the map.How did you find me on the map? It's there a search?
I switched to the XF2Addons map which is much more functional. The developer should be seeing this thread.@Bruce are we running the DragonByte member map? The addons list suggests we are not....
It still has me in the Bahamas....I wish! LOL
Would be so much better if it would go by your stated location first, then by your IP if you don't have one. Then all we'd need to do is tell anyone who doesn't want their location shown to just put their State in their location, then they'd be anonymous.
Does the current version not have some built in/hard coded activity cut off? Clearly it isn't mapping everyone all the time (as an example, I looked up where Zipper logged in from, and his IP would have put him close to Burlington VT-where he lives, but he's nowhere to be seen).@Julian, I believe the active days feature would reduce the number of members displayed to those that had been recently active.
I agree that this map is not as good as it could be but it is the best of what is currently available. I discussed our issues with the developer and pointed him to this thread. Unfortunately our members and the developer disagree about the optimal function of the member map.
I agree...based on the map, I have gone off the radar. I am not listed in Vermont or any of these pins in the screenshot...And I can see Burlington from my house.Does the current version not have some built in/hard coded activity cut off?

Pity the developer wouldn't put in the option to map off the profile location first, then IP location if no profile location exists. That would allow people to be anonymous if they wanted to (by entering "Antarctica" for example).
