Question Googlemap images

Please take a moment and take the "Multiple Choice Poll".
I noticed that almost every member and newbies do not upload their car image on Babblers Googelmap when they mark their location. And I want to know why.
  • Maybe you are having difficulty uploading or not sure how to upload your car image on Googlemap
  • Maybe you rather not have your car image posted on Googlemap, but why not?
  • Not many members have their car image uploaded, just curious
  • Or it just doesn't matter
  • Seeing your car image helps to identify you on the road, especially those Bay Area folks
Instructions:
To upload your car image on the Google map go to Googlemap
  1. Then go to Your entry
  2. scroll down the page and you will see "Optional: URL of the image for the marker"
  3. just add the URL of your picture there
  4. then click on "Update the Information" to save
  5. Once the image is uploaded you can click on your marker or any body's marker and a pop up window appears to see the image
  6. I think the image has to be a certain size to upload correctly- my image is Small (240 x 180) - Tom M would know
We want to see you cars!

Thanks!

Hi Dedes,

The option that fits my situation is not listed:

"Don't have any great pictures of my car, yet - haven't got a chance to take one w/ good background."

=)

Ok, no problem - actually the thumbnail of your profile pic is good until you get another pic. Just a thought.
Next time join us on a drive, someone will take a pic or two of your pcar!
How about the next Boxster Brunch at Alice's? August 2nd

Thanks for the invitation, Dedes. Unfortunately, my wife and I will be in Las Vegas (sin city) that weekend. Her company is sending her to a conference there, and we might as well take advantage of free accomodation that she's getting. =)

I will try to join you guys one of the future get-together, if possible.

Arrow For those that are wondering where the markers are on the map.

I think there is a temporary problem with the image upload. I PM Tom M (Admin) about it. Try again later please.

FIXED

Thumbs up

Cheers!

Problem solved, thanks to our Adminstrator Tom M. that fixed the Googlemap.

So try uploading your pcar image now. If you have problems let me know.


Tom did mention the having "?" in the link (URL) can cause some problems. So be sure that your URL doesn't have that "?" in the link.

Like my Flickr link does not have a "?" in it:
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3031/...2d841b1b_m.jpg

Sorry if I confused you more.
Thanks

Arrow Babblers World - Googlemap member update

Here are the "Bay Area Boxster Board Listers" aka Babblers with
about 45 (member) markers are on the Bay Area map and I know we have way
more than that.
And not counting the active members outside of the greater Bay Area.
There are so many we could have a Boxsterfest
and more drives/tours/picnics/autoxing/car care day events.
Everyone must have their "favorite road" to drive to put on a drive/tour/lunch.


and our Boxster Board Listers of the USA and Canada
Geez, SoCal Folks could get together with NoCal for a Boxsterfest convention!
I like the CatalogGuy in Mexico too! hmm wondering if he would put on a tour!

Also, Louisiana could have their own "Brunch" with that close knit group of theirs.
And I know Pedro in Florida has his group of Pcar friends! We have the lonely
Texan too!

and Boxster Board Listers of Europe
I know we have more than this. where are you?


and Boxster Board Listers of Australia and New Zealand
don't we have someone else from Australia too


Boxster Board Listers of the world unite!
I thought we had a member in Bangkok, China (Bangkok_Cliff)
Hmmm, where is the Hawaii members? (Macsak)
and Tokyo, Japan? (Asami)


All in all thanks for posting your marker on the map.
Now that I took the time to show you all this, lets have that
wonderful pcar image of yours on Googlemap now.
Cheers!

Like your car image Clemsonc very cool thanks !
and of course Baxter too!
