Can't add myself to map

Postby AlexanderThePrettyGood » 18 Mar 2014, 17:42

The solution is probably staring at me in the face, but I can't figure out how to add myself to the map. The forum says "If you want to be featured on this map, follow the directions in the menu on the left", but I see no directions. Could someone please explain this?

Thanks!

He's talking about this old thing:

...that showed where PlayDip regulars live. Telenoth (I think) made it back in 2009.

Yeah, that thing. I see someone in my home town of Los Angeles and I'd like to see if I can get in touch with them. But I'd also like to add myself on the map for the future in case another local stumbles across it, then they'll know they have a fellow Dip player in the area.

Any ideas on how to work it? I don't see any instructions.

No clue, I haven't looked at it in years, and I don't think it was an official part of the website, but something started by one of the players, so there's no knowing how it works, and it ain't exactly ours.
