I have a google map called the “Asperger’s Meet-Up” map at: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&m ... 765d465ec5

It’s a collaborative format, so anyone with the link can join.
You need to sign in with Google Maps to use it.

Don't put your pin directly on your house. Anywhere in the region is good enough.
It's just so that people who want to organize a meet-up or a retreat can find each other. Or just for fun, to see how spread out we are.

If it doesn’t work for you, send me a PM with your location and I’ll drop your pin wherever you say. I'm used to it, so it only takes a few seconds.

Directions:

Use the vertical bar thingie to zoom-in and out. When your cursor looks like a little hand, you can use it to push the map around – just click & drag.
Click on any pin to see who it represents, then click on the “X” to close the bubble.

You can find your place on the map by entering a town or an address in the Search thingie. I don’t care if you live on the roof of a mall or in a tree or lake. It’s just to show that you are in a general area.

When you are in “Edit” mode, a little tool bar on the top left of the map shows four tools.

To place your pin on the map: Hit the “Edit” button to go into Edit mode.
Click on the pin in the little tool bar to pick it up, then click on your location to drop the pin.
Enter your name or whatever you want to say in your bubble, then click “Ok” to close the bubble.
Hit “Save” to save your changes and hit “Done” to quit the “Edit” mode.

When you’re done, please make a post here in this thread and say, “I did it.”

You can change things later if you like.
To delete a pin, just re-enter the “Edit” mode, click on your pin to open the bubble, click “Delete,” then “Save,” then “Done.”

Please use your WrongPlanet name so that we can contact each other by Private Message. If you belong to more than one Autism/Asperger’s community, you can also give your other user name(s). For example, you could say “Tttahiti – WP” and “Tttahiti – HappyLand. (Or whatever.) You could probably write a book in that bubble if you had nothing better to do.

If you want to change the color of your pin, click on the blue pin inside your bubble.
(Can we get some color in there? It's getting boring.)

By the way, WrongPlanet also has a Frappr Map.
I just can’t figure it out. Sometimes it works and sometimes it dosn’t.

To the left of the map you should see buttons, “Edit” and "Done."
When you tap the "Edit" button, a little tool bar shows up inside the map with four tools.

If it doesn't work, you can send me PM and tell me where to put your pin.
What color would you like?

I'm really really really sorry I messed it up!! I have a slow connection and the title-description pop-up didn't appear at first, so I thought you have to enter it where the edit button is. I entered my details and realized that was for the map title and description. I've deleted it.
Tahitiii, please add the details again!!

Sorry again.

P.S. Yes, I've added myself. I'm the guy in India (Dhawal).

I did it. I'm the only marker in Idaho right now, though I know for a fact that there are more Idahoans on WP than me.

I'm the Norwegian. I "accidentally" drew a blue polygon over the entire map, but I eventually managed to get rid of it again. :oops:
