If you want the exact position from me you'd need to move me 3 miles on the map. I'll pm you my proper address and I'll check with Dave.

looking at the map, it's quite suprising that in the U.K. there are only 3 members North of Leeds (myself included). I thought it would have been a fairly even spread across the country.

Remember there's no money up north to spend on models ;) :lol:

The global membership map has just been updated with the position for RaceOddity (Scott) in Calgary. He's just 4km from Rat (Tom), which must be one of the smallest distances between members of our forum.

I saw this thread just right now, is it possible to update my location to a bit further up north on the road 63 going from Karlstad?

Hi Magnus, I've revised your position, but send me a PM if you want it to be more exact.

Sorry Phil, not sure how I missed you. You've now been added in the Woodlands Hills County Club. Again, send me a PM if you'd like that revised.

I've also added 'Reeft1' today, as well as including temporary markers for 'Lucky', 'Mbc112', 'Lesopc', 'Jim762' and 'Tihomir'.

Have I forgotten any other active, long-standing members ?

I'm sure I posted here but there's no evidence of it! I am actually in a town called Havant Ian. It's on the south coast near Portsmouth. Winchester is about 40 minutes away.

Great idea. I enjoyed looking at the map and was a bit surprised at how few west coasters we have here. BTW, my name is Michael, not Steve.

Thanks.

Thanks Michael, I'll update your details. I'm not sure where 'Steve' came from, but apologies all the same.

It must be time for another update to the map. Who are we missing ?

Added a couple of new names to the map today :

Albert ('The Collector'), Canada
John ('JJ2728'), Canada
Glen ('Glen'), Belgium
Wayne ('wKennerley'), UK

Any others I'm missing ? Remember the general criteria is 6 months active membership, and/or 50 posts.

Only two regular contributiors from Aussies, but one of them lives in Dubai ;) .

There are a few other occassional Aussie visitors here : Gilles27, MarkWicks, Maximus.

However, Australian collectors are also very well served by their own forum on the Biante websites.

Once again I have enjoyed my quick stroll around the world. Many thanks for your efforts on this.

Jeff, when I was updating the map, I ran through the members list looking at the number of posts and the last time people logged into the forum. What surprised me was the number of people that had logged on recently, yet hadn't actually posted anything for several months. People obviously get busy and don;t necessarily have time to post, but that that doesn;t mean they lost interest in the forum or colecting in general.

Go to the list of members, click on 'Last Active' to list them in date order and you might be surprised at who is still lurking around in the background.
