I entered my details a couple of weeks ago and they still haven't shown up, do I need to re-send them?

Hi Manxdavid,

There is a very good possibility that either an email address was not submitted with your marker request, or that a preferred address was not selected from the dropdown menu once the Submit button was pushed the first time (this step actually sets the longitude/latitude coordinates). Verifiable email addresses are required so that markers can be either modified or deleted at a later date by contacting me at [email protected]. Once those coordinates appear in the appropriate boxes, just hit Submit again and you should get verification that your marker is Pending Approval.

Please try again, and if I have any questions, I will contact you through Private Message.

Important note to all that would like to submit markers; valid email addresses are mandatory as you complete your personal information. I am requiring valid email addresses so that (1.) I can contact you if your submitted information needs correcting or tweaking, and (2.) your valid email address can be a great reference if you would like to either update, modify, or delete your entry in the future. This email address will not be public (unless you also list it in the description section), and it will not be distributed to any 3 parties.

There has been several times where markers have been submitted without valid email addresses. Unfortunately, I have had to delete these pending entries, and I have no way of contacting the marker owner to alert them of this fact. Please drop me an email to [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns, thanks.

I just looked at the map and in the last few weeks a lot of buggy's have poped up!

Trying figure out how to edit my picture. I have a different buggy now and the picture no longer matches.

Hi Joe,

If you would like to edit/update your photo, just send the updated photo to [email protected], along with any edited/updated text that may apply. If you use the same email address that you supplied as you created your first marker, I should be able to make the change rather easily.

Here's a lost jem we've forgot about. After Steve's bionic transplants, he took up the awesome hobby of building buggies. In an episode called The Peeping Blonde. Farrah Plays a nosey reporter who discovers our buddies secret ( both actually he builds buggies and has bionics limbs) here is a clip I found but if you can find the episode you won't be disappointed as he tears out the toolbar to tie up two bad guys. This scene is an homage to the Thomas Crown Affair http://youtu.be/8Q4FbcE5u5I

I would like to apologize to those that have submitted map markers recently without getting speedy approval. Normally, I automatically get an email notifying me that a marker is pending approval, but when I logged on this evening to check out a submitted marker there were actually 5 waiting approval. If you decide to submit a marker and you do not see it pop up on the map at least within 48 hours, feel free to either PM me here or drop me an email at [email protected], and I will look into it.

Just a reminder, valid email addresses are required to be entered along with your marker information. These email addresses are used if I need to clarify a marker's information, along with being the reference if someone wants to either modify or delete their marker in the future. I do not use the email addresses for any other purpose, and they are not given to 3rd parties. Marker submissions that do not include email addresses are deleted. Thanks.

Hi charlindabob,

Yes, the map is still active and appears to be working properly for new submissions. It is important to remember that valid email addresses are required with submissions; those without valid email addresses are not approved.

These email addresses are used if I need to clarify a marker's information, along with being the reference if someone wants to either modify or delete their marker in the future. I do not use the email addresses for any other purpose, and they are not given to 3rd parties. Marker submissions that do not include email addresses are deleted.

After submitting your marker for approval, please do not hesitate to drop an email to [email protected] for verification, thanks.

OK, I give up.....I filled out the form and checked it several times, and yes, I added a valid email address, BUT THERE IS NO SUBMIT BUTTON ANYWHERE TO BE FOUND. I looked everywhere, but the form is lacking, oh well. Grrrrr! It may show up on YOUR computer, but believe me, it just isn't there on mine.

Hi Bob,

I do apologize for the confusion; I just checked out the form box myself and it does show a Submit button down in the right hand corner. Please send me your email address by Private Message, and I will send you a screen shot to see if you are seeing the same box layout that I see on my end.
