You are using the right e'mail address Barry. Did you give it to Martin or is it the one he had already ?

Editing the map is not that easy it seems...

I opened the email link which then opened the map. Above the map title it says Collaborate, I clicked the edit button next to this and it opened a range of options on the top of the map. I then picked the pushpin and placed on the map. Screen print attached

Map is looking busy already

Not sure why some people are having problems, I found it a piece of cake, however this could be because I have a google email address as well.
I loaded up the address provided by Martin & DD  in this thread and then logged into my account , and made the map a "My map " in my account"  then just added the post code into the search and then just added a picture and changed the Icon, the whole thing took less than a minute.

Regards Footski and Roger in France could it be that for what ever reason the google site will not allow editing from outside the UK ? just a thought.

I think that once it is up a running this could be a really useful aid to locate clubs and venues.

One thing however I would be cautious about, is  putting the location of your address on the site for obvious reasons, particulary if Th UK site does go down the same route as the US where you can vertualy do a 360 tour of the house from the ground.

I have no specific  edit button either , I just search for the location and then a small pop up appears to let me then change things but no specific edit button, unless the changes I have made can only be seen by me ?. Can you see the runcorn club on the map ?.

It appears also that I could alter the other locations which is a bit worring.

Yes, The Runcorn club can be seen, but there is no sign of an edit or collaboration button...

Whether they are only examples doesnt matter, a UK map would be a bit more thoughtful.

I zoomed out, scrolled around, zoomed in, and found my street in China. 8)

I can then click on sattelite and look at the pool in our development.
Can't quiet zoom in to see me drinking cans of Abbot Ale on a deck chair though.

It's certainly not Abbot's Ale - it looks more like Tiger Beer to me?   {-) {-)

Correct , you take my point. Why in the UK did we not use a UK map for the samples, only an English one?   Just being pedantic,I`ll be better when I have my dram and a belly full of haggis and porridge, listened to a few pibrochs on the chanter and danced a couple of reels. {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)  Nice to see an Oriental location O0
