    You should be able to click on it and drag it?

    Where do you want it? If you can't move it, I'll move it for you.

    I wonder why our map changed colors. It was much easier to read when it was white.

    At the bottom, under the names, it says 'base map.' That changes the map that is displayed.

    I have a populated map in my Drive, but I think it is a new one since the original was lost? There are 8 names on the one I have.
    How do I know if it's what we're looking for?

    I have now added me. I think it is a fantastic idea. Is there somewhere where we can pin this thread so that it is easily accessible?
