Hi Stude and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.

There appears to be a little glitch with the Members Map at the moment, but there is a work-around:

You can find your coordinates on many sites, eg (find your location and right click where your mouse pointer is)

Oddly, once you do that, the map in our members map displays properly on the 'your entry' page...but don't try to move the marker or you'll lose the map again.

I hope this helps
