J2 Community World Map

Post by mbaxter » Sat Feb 24, 2018 8:49 pm

Some interest in Discord as a result of me bringing up the old frappr map we had for a time. Map showing where j2 members are located.

I want to discuss a few points:

1. How much resolution do we want on the map? Down to the country level (or state/region for USA)? City?
2. How should we track / manage it?
3. How should it be updated? Tied to your account?

1. I think it should be down to the city level most likely. Failing that country/state would be cool.
3. I don't know how feasible it would be but perhaps having you (bax) be in charge of what's on the map would be best. We could message you to have our location added to the map. Again, I don't know how well it would work but it's just an idea

The plan:

Utilize Google Maps to display a custom-pinned map. I will automate (or semi-automate) the process of adding based on user input over IRC and discord.
