I tried to add myself but can't. Using my phone so maybe that's why? I get a pop-up with a list of TFO members on the map but it covers the map so I can't see it.

@Markw84 - some of us more illiterate computer folks have "added a layer." Can you please remove those layers?

Oh, and Tammy: The link you were trying to work with was the very old link where Josh had made a map of members. Evidently it's no good to use anymore.

I deleted the extra layers.

Can we ask everyone who adds their pin to name it the same as their forum name? That way if we want to contact someone we see near us, or where we are going, we know who to PM on the forum. For example, @TammyJ named her pin simply TJ. That fine, but noone will know who TJ is! The point is to be able to see a location and then contact the member through the forum which still protects identity info as much as you want.

Well heck. But I'll bet it's still there somewhere. Oh well. We can always start again. I re-added my name. I think I'll add Marks instructions on how to use the map into the very first post in the thread so we'll see the instructions before we click on the map link.

It says, "All changes saved in drive" Can you look for "drive" on your screen and see if the map with pins is saved in there? I don't see drive.

The map 'lives' in the cloud aka Google drive. Individuals adding to it can undo/redo their actions with the arrows on toolbar.

It may be possible for @jsheffield to recover it since he started it; the drive it's in should be his. When i look at it, theres a note at bottom saying deleted maps go in trash.

Yeah, I looked in my Google 'trash' but it's not in there. I'll bet if @Sesel looks in HIS/HER google 'trash' the map will be there. Thanks, Cameron.
