Put yourself on the map...

I found what seems to be an older Halloween Forum map on Frapper, but I did a spot check and couldn't find a single person that I see who regularly posts on the website any more. It seems outdated and overcrowded based on our current active members, so I decided to create my own 2008 Halloween Forum frapper map. I think it'll be fun and cool to see where everyone is on the map and who is near us that we can take a drive and see their personal haunt some time. Please add yourself to the map!!!

Click here to add yourself to the 2008 Halloween Forum Frappr Map!!!

Let me know if you can't add yourself for some reason. I'm the admin for this map and still can make changes if necessary.

OK....the Virginia contingent REALLY needs to have a meeting, I mean, we are literally a stone's throw from each other!!!!

Wouldn't that be fun???

We could all go for a ride in the Magic Pumpkin with the top down:D

Whattaya say????
I'm in northern VA (Centreville) - just added myself! I'd love to see some of your haunts. Do you all keep them up after Halloween?

So, was looking at the original Frappr Halloweenforum map, and Haunted Host is right...hardly anyone posting regularly here is on it.

I ran into an issue with my pin there everyone should know about, though.....

It appears that, while they made a change so you can set your Frappr URL so it's sensible (eg: frappr.com/bayork for me), doing so BREAKS ALL THE LINKS to the pins you previously placed on maps. Because of this "feature", there was no way to edit my pin to update it. My only recourse was to add an entirely new pin.

So if you want to be able to edit your pins on the Maps you are on, be wary of making any changes to your profile settings ...other updates could potentially cause the same effect...

That is a very good idea... funny how cool people gravitate, ain't it?

I'd like to help set up a meeting or "mini-con," but my work and home-life are so chaotic I have trouble meeting schedules. The ball's in your court; give me a date and I'm there!

Oh, and please don't throw stones at me.


Edit/PS... I think Luray or one of the other nearby caverns would be perfect!

I've been going in occasionally and deleting "visitor" or non-descript pins, so if I see one, I'll blow it away. No worries. ;)

Laurie, I could've sworn I recall you specifically say that you lived in Zimbabwe. You sure about that? :D Goofball! It should let you move it, but if it doesn't, just add a second one and I'll remove the incorrect one. As the map owner/admin, I can delete any pins I want... so y'all better be nice to me. :p Just kidding... why should I hold any of you to a higher standard than my personal friends. :D

That might be where everybody thinks I'm from from now on, 'cause that booger of a map ain't lettin' me move my pin for nothin'!! I've tried everything to set up a new one! (But please do keep in mind how technologically challenged I am ;)). Oh well y'all, as far as you're concerned, I'm chillin' on the jungled regions of balmy Zimbabwe, hehehehe......actually, I've always wanted to vacation there...I love piranhas and king cobras..... ;)

Okay Laurie. Try this... on the left side of the map, there's a list of member pictures. The very first one should be a generic square that says "Add Yourself". If you go ahead and click that square, it should allow you to add a new pin. If not, try deleting the cookies in Tools>>Internet Options>>General>>Temporary Internet Files first, and then Add Yourself again.

Let me know if this still doesn't work.

Indeed, Madame, that's how I roll...give me an inch and I take a mile, hehehe......well you know HH, I implemented those instructions specifically ('preciate you walking me through it too, that's the only way I can operate this thing before me ;)), and I'm still at dumpy 'ole square one. Don't know what's goin' on...maybe when I'm not mad at my husband anymore (don't ask :)) I can get him to help me. :)
