Starfire Player Map

Postby Cralis on Mon 31 Dec 2018 16:10

Howdy!

UPDATE - MAP: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewe ... 809013&z=2

Someone sent me a really cool idea... put all of the Starfire players on a Google map! So I'm going to put together a google map and I'd like to know who is interested in being added.

Plus, if anyone has any experience with custom Google maps and has some suggestions on the best ways to setup the map, please say something! I'm totally new at at his and I'd love to hear your suggestions.

So who wants to be first?

EDIT: Please let me know if you want me to put an email or some other way for you to be contacted if someone wants to try and setup a game with you. And if you have any Starfire-related website, facebook page, forum stories, etc. that you'd like me to add to your description, please note that as well.

EDIT2: And what name do you want me to use? Forum user name? Real name? Type what you want me to put...

Awesome! I'm going to add the links to your website and your stories here in the forum

I'm also changing the top post to ask players how they want to be contacted if someone wants to play with them (I'll put it on the map location description), and if they want a website or links to forum stories or something posted, please tell me what you want there.

I kind of like this idea and am looking forward to how it turns out.

BTW I'm in Norfolk Virginia and we are usually kicking around Solar on this side of the pond.

Do you want me to put your email or something so you can be contacted by other players? Oh and do you want me to use your forum user name or real name (or both)? What name do you want me to put?

You should be able to set up a map where people can tag themselves, putting in whatever contact info they desire.

Like this one for Runewars players: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid= ... 35%2C0&z=2
TFN: 1 BB, 2 BC, 4 CA, 2 CL, 11 DD
RPSA: 2 CV, 4 CA, 2 CL, 8 DD
civilian: 4 'FTx' (made FT out of 40K Imp Guard flamer tanks)

I’ve seen publicly available Google map views done before. That’s actually how I got the idea. My concern with a public-access map is that I’ve also seen where someone took advantage of the public access to put in obscene information, add spam, change other user’s data, and in one case simply delete all of the data.

Is there a way to allow public access and prevent those things from happening?
