I think it locates us by IP address, and we know that isn't reliable because it usually hits the last hop before our homes.
I saved the supplied editing link and it let me drag the pin exactly where I wanted it to be.

The best option is to zoom in close and plant the marker in the correct spot in the first place.

[align=center]you shoulda saved the edit link it gave when you added yourself first. that link lets you pinpoint on the map if you didnt get it right first time.
if you lost the edit link, just add yourself again and zoom in on the spot you want to pin. i can delete your oringnal entry afterwards..

or you can find the exact coords you need on the map and send me a pm,, and i can edit it for you..

I added a new one so it is where it belongs. I still don't see an Edit link, but I guess I won't worry about that. Just go aheade and delete the original. Thanks again for your help.

The edit link only comes up oince when you make your entry Bob, you have to copy and save it for future use. The reason for that is so nobody else can alter your entry.

They are not supposed to. The numers on the right are only for reference so we can scroll down and see how many people are using the map. If you click on any of the numbers on the right and wait a few seconds, the correct entry pin for that personwill pop up.

It works fine for me in Firefox 8.0 Bob. I also tried it in IE8 and Chrome, lads fine there too. You might want to check your settings in Firefox in case you have it set to block the map.
