Frappr map of PopTray users

Post by rsleegers » Wed Nov 16, 2005 4:15 pm

Would anybody be interested in setting up a map of PopTray users using http://www.frappr.com/ ?

This web site uses Google Maps and allows people to add their location and a greeting/picture. I would set it up myself, but I would think KY Dave or Renier should be the ones controlling it. (the administrator can remove unnecessary or erroneous information).

[edited: removed example so as not to confuse which frappr group to join]

I followed your suggestion and have created a PopTray Users group at FRAPPR.

It is voluntary, so users should not have a problem with it as they can choose to join or not join.

Here is the FRAPPR LINK to the group.

After some trial and error, I eventually figured out the exact city syntax required.......so I'm also on the map.

Cheers,
Martin.

I have enjoyed looking at the area of each users home town. I realize that the map doesn't place our markers in the exact location, but it's near enough to see what part of the planet they live. This is very informative for me.

It's amazing, to me, that we have come together as a group from vastly different parts of the planet.

I hope more users will add their marker.

Years ago, an online software pirate who resented an anti-piracy piece that I had written in a MS newsgroup, stole my identity and posted illegal and pornographic things all over the Internet in my name, using my email address, home address, home phone number, etc., etc., etc., for several weeks, causing me all kinds of trouble, until MS Data Security tracked him down and told him that what he was doing was a felony. He apologized publicly in the MS newsgroups, but there was no way to undo all of the damage that he had already done to me. Ever since then, I've been paranoid about protecting my personal information, so it isn't worth it to me to register, enable javascript, enable cookies, etc. at sites like frappr. I make no judgment about any of you -- I'm just explaining why I won't be adding my marker to frappr.

That is certainly your call, and I won't try to convince you otherwise. I don't worry myself too much about javascript and cookies, as I use FireFox, and the cookies get cleaned out regularly.

For privacy reasons, your frappr information is limited to city only (your tag says you are Gulf Coast, so you could just pick one in the general area :) ), and you are not required to give your real name or e-mail address. Although I imagine if you used a different name than in PopTray Forums, we may think you are someone else...

Understanding Bob's concerns - I tend to share them - as far as I know we are a long time dead so a little risk may not hurt!
Added mine and it _is_ interesting to see the spread of the global community

Enjoy your time here
Be Happy
