    Shouldn't your dot be a bit further north and on Lake Ontario? Or are you not really in Toronto?

    suggestion: When there are many people at a single point (as in new york) make a single label with the names of all who live there.

    If New York or any other place gets too many in comparison to rest of map then ill add another zoom zone for them.

    If all the members added themselves then we should expect areas with lots of dots. We cant expect to resolve every dot as an individual in every case.

    That's interesting. Toronto should be on the North-Western tip of Lake Ontario. Toronto's coordinates are Latitude: 43° 40' North, Longitude: 79° 22' West. I rounded down on my 2nd attempt and it put me near Niagara Falls. I tried a third attempt with 43.4 and -79.22 and it still missed the Greater Toronto Area (GTA as the locals call it).

    Sigh, I grabbed the coordinates from Google Maps (43.76911,-79.387207) and it put me in Lake Ontario (4th attempt). I give up. Feel free to erase my previous attempts. Sorry about the extra work, Redrobes. Meanwhile if anyone needs me, I'll be snorkeling in Lake Ontario.
    Cheers,
    Tim

    Not bad. The locals have a saying, "Qian Wu Gou Ren."*

    Its ok as its my fault for rounding the coords on the USA map so I got out google and put in some super accurate ones now so hopefully it should be better. Its got you about right and RobA just on the coast underneath. Its never going to be absolute to the pixel but should be just about right enough to know where we all are in relation to each other.

    We have some handles on the map from people who aren't in the members list so presumably these are lurking guests - which is cool as we will know where they come from *when* then decloak.

    Well done Sagenlicht - you must be Munich (München) way then. People say its nice there. I have been there but just to the railway station tho ;(
