There are quite a few different visual options for this member map. There's spinney globe, the one we've got, animated ones, etc etc...you can check them all out here. I can't decide, and its not for me to decide anyway, I'm not king of the forums, we're a democratic body of like minded nerds, so, in keeping with that vibe, please use your bodhistic democratic right to choose the kind of member map you'd like to see.
I am indifferent on this actually. But one thing to consider is what it displays, maybe not all users will want their location revealed. I myself don't mind as my location is a matter of public record anyone can find out. And plus usually, things like this get my actual physical location wrong always and tend to display the location of my ISP server or whatnot a couple of cities away.

True, if the same thing, when using google searching (used for only) for something, shows Brookings Oregon, thats southern Oregon (really close to California), I'm western Washington.

Just a bit of fun innit! But yeah, I hear you on members locations, though I think it works on if they give their locations when they sign up to the forums, and if they don’t they don’t go on the map, rather than ip location. I’ll double check that though.
