World Map

  1. Bit random but i think a world map thread with a pic of the world with tags with where we are all from would be cool as it'd be a snapshot of how wide our community is and usefull plus interesting for those like me wit poor geography skills!

    dunno if that makes sense ur take on it?
     
  2. I know what you mean, will see if there's a plugin available. Don't think there is with MyBB.
     
  3. fairplay mate mybb means nothin to me lol!

    just seemed an interesting idea! whether its possible i dunno lol!
     
  4. Doesn't seem to be a plugin like it at the moment, but I might look deeper into it tomorrow morning. World Map is something I think would be pretty cool :)

    Btw, MyBB is the forum software we're running on :)
     
  5. lol ta mate wouldn't believe i did IT ten year ago lols! moves so fast!

    an ta i think its a cool idea u could see where we are all from be interestin!
     
  6. I like the concept. I was planning on working on an advanced statistics plugin in the future and a world map could just be added to that.

    With geolocation and the Google Maps/Earth API's, it should be fairly easy to add some pretty neat features.
     
  7. I know vBulletin and IPB has this mod using Google Maps. Haven't seen one for MyBB but it'd be pretty cool.
     
  8. We had any luck on this one guys or is it a nightmare to try an do?

    Still think it'd be a cool idea and for the useless geography heads like me a help towards relating where ppl are from.
     
  9. No luck at all I'm afraid. There's no such plugin for MyBB and I'm not sure if it's worth bugging Anonymous to make it as it's probably quite difficult lol.
     
  10. LOL fair enough. Will just have to get myself a globe and learn some geography.
