Put yourself and your company on the map. :thumbsup:

LightWave users worldwide (http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=110633947348591622078.0004864e6c43cf3bb2eff)

- Log in to Google, click edit.
- Place a blue location tag
- By city is near enough

Uhm.. I suggested an x-Men cerebro style of identification, but obviously
in the wrong hands and minds someone could go kill all the lightwave mutants or should I say core mutants.

This map is probably missing a lot of user still, including me in sweden sthlm.
and cageman i sweden malmö and several others.

and what about china and japan, must be loads of wavers over there.
And russia might be another big country to invade:)

I wonder if this map actually would be useful for Newte when building a strategy to direct itīs marketing.

Fun anyway to see whom you could go out and have a coffe or a drink with,
and discuss lightwave.

Now why did someone start messing it up with "EK" and a big *** white arrow.

If there had been some correlation between the amount of awesome of the work to the size of the arrow it wouldn't have been so bad. Hmm, correction: there is a correlation. It's just inverse.

My pin is no longer on the map ??? Is there any particular reason for that ? Anybody can delete pins ? if so I really wonder why someone decided to delete it - I'm a registered LW user and I live and work where I pinned it so what the heck ? :confused:

Edit: hum sorry guys, it seems that GMaps is not showing the whole set of pins from time to time - I reloaded the page and it fixed it : / Now I feel stupid !

Since we are now up to 2 pages, it only displays one page at a time : / .. kind lame really.

It is also lame that it lists the users chronologically only.

Still, great to see it fill out a nicely ...

Just a reminder, noticed a double place-post:

There are 2 pages of users, apparently only 200 can be displayed at one time (a limit of google maps). So if your placing does not appear, check the other page.

Also, the order is totally chronological (!), which we may bash into some kind of order down the track, at least put the continents together, alphabetically ordered etc.

Almost 20,000 views (not unique, but still ..) ! Not bad considering it's not listed in the directory :)


Keep posting! Especially in Asia major and minor ;) !

I tried to place mine on my tablet which proved to be near impossible. Some funkiness with the Wacom pen that made dragging the marker an insufferable experience. In the process I dragged "ZARDOZ" out of place and canīt find it anymore (Sorry Luis!!)

Strange that we can edit other peoples markers at all..

Danner
12-27-2010, 02:17 AM
That made me laugh!, I use the tablet for a lot of things.. but it just doesn't work for others. The great afterFX color correction tool called "looks" is unusable with a tablet.

- Fill in the info, by city is near enough

Silkrooster

I found it easier to just delete the marker and re-add it. Dragging seams to be buggy. I dragged Newteks to Texas, but zooming out places them in the Ocean. Go figure.

Yep - that's what I did. Looks like Oliver was none too happy with NewTek at the time he replaced his marker...

Hi guys ..

Was quite surprised to see these last posts regarding the map .. since the map was created on my google account :) ..

It initially came after some discussions on the skype lightwave chat, some time ago. It is an open map, so anyone can edit, so my initial thoughts when I saw the problem was a) google maps is broken, or b) someone on the lux forums has way too much time on their hands ..

However, it gets weirder ..

I exported some copies of the entries in april, and they loaded fine into Google Earth. Really quite cool.

But now, suddenly, even many of these load in Antarctica. Really, really, odd.

Can anyone take a look at the files? maybe you see the issue that I don't ...

(NOTE: RENAME THE FILES FROM TXT TO KML BEFORE OPENING IN GOOGLE EARTH)

Hope we can find workable a solution ... if there is anything I can do my end, let me know! :)
