Edit 2014.08.20: You are welcome to continue to use this mapping option but we also have an automatic Member map feature for full members (over 50 posts) that will TRY to resolve your location based on IP.

This is a map that is obly visible to members AND you can opt out if you do not want to be seen.

The new map is located here: http://www.405th.com/membermap.php

This is a very cool idea Adam. It'll be really cool to see where everybody here is from represented on a map.

This is getting annoying because whenever I click "Add Yourself" it doesn't do anything but asks me if where I live is where I live.

It's working again, but what about all those 'anonymous users'

Like the one from Mountville, that like 2 minutes from me.... and last night when I was looking at this from my home computer it kept asking me if I was from Mountville.... I didn't reply but it looks like it added me anyway?

Also I didn't see NukieUK and Syntax on there. ..
