    The Garden Pond Forums Member Map is now up and running! You can access it here:

    https://www.gardenpondforum.com/memberMap/

    We will put a link on the main page in the future - it's proving a little tricky but we'll get there!

    If you want to add your location, simply click on the button in the right hand corner.

    :)

    Thats pretty cool to be able to see about where in the world everyone is from, I added mine.

    It should almost be a requirement to join, just because so many people have questions on pond depths, plants, things you need to know location to be able to help with thier questions. I know some people don't really want that info out there though.

    Also, I see if you click on the map, it brings up the member and you can clcik on thier name and go to thier profile. Is there a way to make it go the other way too? so if you are on thier profile and you clcik on thier location, it bring you to that map?

    I noticed that you get a notification if someone you are friends with adds their location.

    The member map is currently in beta, so we'll need to look into whether it's possible to do this. I agree it would be very useful!

    What are the different colors? FISHIN shows up as green; mine and 2 others are blue; and the rest are red. Moderator? On-line? Off-line?

    As far as I can tell, moderators and admin are green, and everyone else is red. The blue icons appear when there are two markers that are close together - if you zoom in a bit that should disappear and you will see the individual red markers.

    If someone is your friend it shows as green with a F in the green. Blue with a little house: i.e. your home for your icon

    Neat feature. Added mine.

    I was thinking the exact same about how it'll help members to know who to ask about region specific ponding questions. Very kool feature.
