Title: Welcome to the GTA Forum Members Map - Find Local Airgun Friends
Post by: Gertrude on May 05, 2014, 03:14:21 PM
I have seen on some other forums where their is a "Members map".

 The GTA Does already have one in the GTA Library,... But most new members, and many older ones rarely see it there.

The idea with this new map, is for it to be tied to this thread, so that when you place a marker, you also add a post to this thread.
 This should help the map to grow quickly and become a useful tool to all of us, when looking for a shooting buddy.
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's the link to a new map.
 Feel free to go on and place your marker.

https://www.zeemaps.com/group=962067 (https://www.zeemaps.com/group=962067)

 Then click the Additions Tab,...
 Then click "Add Marker-Simple"...

 For your Map Name,...PLEASE USE YOUR GTA SCREEN NAME
 Then choose a nearby location (within a few miles of your home), where it says "address".

NOTE- This map is a full public access map.
ANYONE on the internet can look at it... and it is not controlled by the GTA.

For your own Privacy and Security, we strongly suggest you place your marker a few miles AWAY from your actual home address
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Each of the members on the forum, can go to the map and place a marker somewhere near where they live on the map.

 It Should Not be your exact address, so you are not subjecting yourself to any undue security or safety concerns.
 It can simply be the city you reside in, or at a major cross street, nearby shopping center, or wherever you choose.

 Naturally, it is not a requirement of membership, and participation is completely voluntary to each member.

  The amount if information on each icon is completely up to each person who might choose to participate.
  I think it might be fun, interesting, and entertaining to have here on the GTA,...
  Especially since we are an INTERNATIONAL Forum !  ;D

If you DO choose to place a marker on the map, Please come back to this thread and make a short post saying you are now on the map. That way, it will bring the thread back to the top so more members will see it, and new members will find it.

You could also add a link to the map or this thread to your GTA signature. that way, each time you make a post, it will be available to anyone who may have otherwise missed it.

Enjoy, and I hope it will help to bring fellow airgunners together and help to promote our sport

Thanks Bullit,
Ok, I found an old thread about it from 2011, but when I clicked the link in the first post, it says "No File Found".

Anyone here care to make a new one for us ?

 Maybe if we get a new one going, the Admins can make it a sticky, (that way it would not get lost into the archives abyss), and then when new members sign onto the GTA, we could welcome them, and invite them to add their spot ?

Post by: Gertrude on May 09, 2014, 12:27:29 AM
Maybe try this:
https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zJBonQQAhFrk.kq78LKf78T5A

Open the map and search for your address. Then click the green or red arrow thing and click add to map. Once you see it as a layer on the left click it, then in the bottom right hand corner of the box that pops up, click the pencil, and put your username as the title.

Austin,
I'm not sure if you've got the settings where anyone can add to it. I put in my address, hit search, green marker popped up, ... but there is no "Add to map". I do see where it opens up a layer on the left side box, but clicking that does nothing, and there is no pencil. Only your name has the pencil.

Maybe it will only allow the "Owner" of the map to edit/add?
I dunno  ??? it's probably me not doing something right.

Can anyone else add their spot ?

You got it,... Done.

Now hopefully we can get it to grow quickly.
 It might be a good idea for everyone to bookmark and save the link to this thread, so that when we are welcoming new members, we can invite them to place their marker too.

I think it should be a sticky on the front page, or in the welcome area.

And maybe a banner ad placed across the top of the home page every so often promoting it..

Woo-Hoo ! we got our first marker outside of the CONUS !

Come on guys, place your marker on the map, and then make a reply here that you did.
 That way, others will then see it and do the same.
 Soon we will cover the world, and finding a shooting buddy near or far will be much easier.
Keep it going !

So i came across this in the forums, seems very cool. Just "add location" (top left) type your name, location (city, state) and submit. This will help everyone find people in their state, maybe even get some local shooting buddies.

   Done, Chesterfield, VA. So anyone who wants to ry to get a fun shoot, or just an afternoon with a couple of people, PM me if you are in the area. I also coach our local 4-H shooting team, so a heads up is a god idea as my schedule can be a bit crazy.

Right ON ! That's what this is all about guys!
 I'm glad it is starting to work for the GTA membership  ;D

 It has already worked for me, and I have met and shot with 5 new friends because of the GTA.
 2 of them are directly because of the new map,... and Each and Every one of them are Top Notch Guys that I am proud to call my friends!
 There is just something about airgunners in general, and it is ESPECIALLY TRUE for the "caliber" of folks who frequent the GTA !

 The more folks that place their marker on the map,.... The more momentum it will build,.... and the better it will work for everyone.
 
Come on guys,... Don't just look on the map for someone near you, and get discouraged if you don't find someone local.
 You've got to put your marker on, so when someone local to you see's it, they can send you a PM to get together, and they will put theirs on too.

 Don't be shy ! Mark your Spots !

Airborne,
First, I like to say Thank You for your service to our country,
 And second,  I like to say Thank You for your service to your youth group.

 I am also a 4H Youth Shooting Sports Leader for my childrens club. We are doing a Air Rifle Program, that I find very rewarding and a LOT of fun. Teaching a child to safely handle and effectively shoot is a great tool for build confidence, understanding, concentration, focus, and disiplines that they will carry on to many aspects of their lives.

I never get tired of seeing them apply the methods we teach, and watching them grin ear to ear when they hit their mark.
 I have 10 -14 years old ringing a cowbell at 85 yds. I've even got one little 8 year old girl that is about 40 pounds soaking wet, and she's hitting the cowbell to, and picking off paint balls at 45-50 yards.

 You should see the expression on her dads face when she is at the bench, and the rifle is bigger than she is. hahaha.

 Move over to a halfway decent PCP, and watch your groups start printing at half the size of your rimfires.
 Sure the PCP's have a bit of a Sticker Shock Factor to get started, but 500 pellets costs any where from $8 to $12 bucks.
 how much do you spend per shooting session on your rim fires ? and add in the cost of Range Fee's. or Fuel to drive,. and it quickly starts to show that those expensive PCP's aren't that bad in the long run.
 There are even a few BUDGET models that are VERY IMPRESSIVE>

Again, Thanks for both your service to the country and to the kids. They are our future.

I agree, "anonymous" should not be used for this kind of a community map.
 The whole point of the map is to promote camaraderie and find  each other for meeting up and sharing good times.
 
 You can not make contact with others through the map itself. It must be done through the PM's of the forum.
 If you put "anonymous" on the map, it does no good for determining who to send a PM to. Please use your GTA Forums Screen Names.

My vote would be to give the Anonymous entries a few weeks to ask Austin to edit their marker for them, as he holds the administrative authority to the map.
After that, if they do not contact him to edit it for them, then deletion of those markers should be considered.

Hi Tom,
yeah, I knew his email was a membership wide distribution. I figured he wanted to give the new map a little kick in the pants since it's already proving to be a nice tool for the membership. Pretty cool thing for him to do if you ask me.
 Thanks DEz !

 I guess this pretty much proves that when the DEz-man talks,.... Folks listen !  ;D

good thinking.
only you, and/or the admins here should have the power to edit or alter the map.

yes,
in the top left corner of map,... hold your cursor over "view", then move the cursor down to click on "Search",... then enter the name/screen name,  of who you are searching for.

You can not CONTACT a member through the map to my knowledge.
 You use the map to see who is close to you, or in an area you may be traveling to,.... then you get the screen name of that marker, and come back to the FORUM MEMBERS LIST,...( http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?action=mlist (http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?action=mlist) )... and send that person a PM.
Include your phone number and/or Email in that PM.... and then they can contact you.

I tried that before and no luck.  Worked this time. :D

I need a new puter with more speed and RAM.  This site runs a bit slow for me.  Probably too much for this old machine.

Oh the dilemma.  Buy a new computer or scope and accessories for my new air rifle that's inbound. :-\

I would imagine there are actually more in the area, who are just not on the map.
 Make contact with those that you see there and ask them if they also know others in your area who might not be on the map yet.

Make sure to place your own marker too, and spread the word to anyone you meet who shares the interest in airgunning.
 This is how we find each other to share good times with.

 Also, feel free to copy/paste the red part of my sig.(including the link to the map), and put it in your own sig.
 This way, with each post you make on the forum, others will see it and know there is a way to find others.

Cheers !

Welcome to the GTA .
hope you add your own marker to the map, and it helps you to find other GTA members to hook up with.

Remember to use your GTA screen name on the map (not your real name). That way, when another member wants to contact you, they can come to the forums, look you up in the members list, and send you a PM.

Glad to have you aboard !

hello again i think !
i still dont have clue how to set my visible profile, i got old and dont hunt anymore, i build my own gun's for killing reams of printer targets, went thru the 2240 mod's then to the disco, great gun but loading is a slow process for old finger's so have gone to p-rod's exclusive. i am not a collector but have a couple drawers of parts, about three gun's that are still together, a .177 2240 backpacker tube stock and disco the same build with p-rod grip and tube stock, and two p-rod's one to have active the other is alway's being apart modding, testing and back apart, that is my fun making it better and sometime's not. i shoot 15 yds indoors and build my gun for max fpe and accuracy, much like mr Sike's. i have spent more money on my mini lathe, at least in the short term, milling attachment and most of the good mod's. i have two goal's getting the mill to work easier and well inside big mill tolerances, have this very close to finishing the mod. and shooting one hole eight round p-rod mag's at will, sound crazy, yes it does but i think i have mod for doing it, yep i know this when you quit reading nutty post but i do not buy into most of the barrel and pellet theories especially the speed's well above the sound barrier and i aim to prove it, talk is cheap but the mod is not. so now you have the crazy guy's post how would i set my profile up. i do not worry about being thought a fool. he who laughs last laughs loudest, said some other nut i think !

AGREED 100% ! ! !

Now C'Mon People ! ... What's holding you back ?
Don't you want to find other Airgun folks in your local area's  ? (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/smiley12.gif)

 Lemme tell you a little story (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/smiley8.gif)  about why you may not see folks in your general area's.
 I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone say,...

  * * The reason I haven't put my marker on the map,... is 'cuz I don't see anyone else in my area * *

Well guess what fellers' (and gals),
 There could be ten, or twenty, or thirty folks, within 20 miles of each other, who are all saying the same thing ! (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/smiley2.gif)

We have roughly 17,000 members here on the GTA.  :o  :o  :o
  SEVENTEEN THOUSAND (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/smiley4.gif)

 but we only have 1300 of you who are  on the map.   :'(  :'(  :'(   (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/crybabywawa.gif)
That's only about 8% of the registered GTA members ! (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/smiley7.gif)

So theoretically that means, for every marker that IS on the map,...
 ... there could be, ... 92 More somewhere near their area. (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/smiley6.gif)

But they'll never find each other.
 And you wanna know why ? ... 'Cuz each one of them could be saying the same thing.

 "Well,... I looked at the map, and didn't see anyone near me, so I didn't put a marker down for myself "

I dunno guys, it's just got me shaking my head here. (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/barniearrgh.gif) (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/bangheadonwall.gif)

ALL of the guys I shoot Airguns with,... ALL of the great friends I have personally met,... ALL of the fun times we continue share together,...
 ARE BECAUSE WE FOUND EACH OTHER THROUGH THE GTA AND THE MEMBERS MAP.

We would not have the kinds of permissions we enjoy, and we would not have the brotherly support from each other, if we had never realized that we are fairly close to each other, and we can collectively do great things for some landowners, as well as reap the benefits of have a good place to go shoot pretty much anytime we want to go.
 SURE it took some time, and SURE it takes a lot of work together.
 (Heck, that's why we are so darn picky about openly sharing our particular permissions). It has taken us a LOT of scouting, doorknocking, and effort just to get those places, and it takes just as much effort to keep them too. so yeah, we gotta be picky.
 But my POINT in all of this is,... YOU GUYS CAN DO IT TO !
 you just gotta FIND each other first,.. THEN you gotta WORK TOGETHER to make it happen.

And where do you start ?
BY PUTTING YOUR MARKER ON THE MAP


now c'mon guys, lets get this thing moving (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/popcornsmilie.gif) (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/parythewave.gif) (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/partyfireworks.gif) (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/partytime.gif) (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/smiley11.gif)


and if you don't,...
 ... then we the GTA Staff, will be forced to resort to some dirty voo-doo tricks of the ancient pellet gods.

 We will pull out the old forgotten scrolls, blow off the dust, boil some Ground squirrel brains, Starling wings, Rabbit rumps, and Rat entrails in a big witches pot.
 Then we will light some torches, burn some incense, and dance around the fire wearing 3D camo Ghillie suits, while chanting....

 ** OHHhh Hear Our Call, OHhhhh Supreme Pellet Gods, Leadius Diabloius,... Tight Groupious,... and Sir O-ring,....  please hear our prayers,...  (http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n148/tri5ron/Emoticons%20and%20funny%20pics/smiley5.gif)  for we have some unworthy souls who need your attentions and enlightenments.
  We ask that you have mercy on them and not be too harsh. We ask that you only give them a small curse of, Cant hit their target, Cant get their tanks filled, Cant ever find that perfect pellet, and anything they ever order again,.... will be on a 2 year back-order.
 Thank you OHhhhhh Superior Ones for Hearing Our Calls..... We are here to serve you and to follow in your footsteps. **

So,...OK guys,
 You don't want to force us to gather and do THAT Do You ? ! ? !  ;)  ;D

if you click and hold you can drag around on the map and then on you lower right hand corner there should be a + and - so you can zoom
in and out to help be able to make out one marker from another, but unfortunately it seem
there aren't as many airgunners in the midwest  :-\

I did learn today that if you and other members only put in your city name, you will share the same balloon. When you click on a balloon to bring up the members info box, check the bottom right, it may show "< 1 of 2 >" or even "< 1 of 3 >" etc.
 If you click on the right arrow it shows the other member(s) who entered the same address. Assuming the first name to appear is the first member who entered it and then the latter follows in order. "< 2 of 3 >" the onto "< 3 of 3 >"
So you might have other members in your same town and not even know it!

Great stuff guys,
I'm happy to see more folks using the map, and even happier that we are getting some tips on using it.
THANKS !

I realize that we need to be cautious and not place markers at our actual home addresses simply for privacy and security.
I also think we should put a little more than just the city name.

My suggestion is that when placing your markers, you put it at someplace within say 3 or 5 miles of your home.
Put it at a public place like a park or shopping center or a gas station.
Any place that is somewhat near by that you are comfortable with.

Just putting in your city is close enough. If somebody wants to get up with you, you can decide whether you let them in the palace.

All those dots in St. Louis are other shooters, and there are many more that are not on the map. If you want to hook up with some of them, look under the Missouri Fun Shoots on the bottom of the main GTA page, and look for the airgun silhouette shoot at St. Louis Benchrest shoot as well as the Friday morning shoot at Josephville Machine & Gun shop.

Heck, I'm only about two hours away, and I'm about the same distance away on the other side of St. Louis.

Added my location.  Currently not at a great location to shoot but hope to find some.

Hi - we're moving.  Is there a way to move or delete my old icon/location?  I clicked around a bit on the map but didn't see an options to delete an icon if not registered.

Thanks!

Hey guys
Regarding ways to find other GTA members in your area...

Not all members have placed a marker on the map.
BUT
You DO have a way you can see if other members are local to you.
While here on the forum, click on the members button above.
Then click search for members
The choose the search by city/state, and type in your state.
Then hit search
This will give you a list of all registered members of the GTA in that state.

Then if you find a member close to you, you can send them a PM

Hope this helps

Well guys, it looks like we have lost our GTA Members Map due to ZeeMaps has now apparently gone down the same road as PhotoBucket,... and is holding it for "Ransom", (or should that be Extortion ?)

UMap may be an option as a free and self hosted alternative.
It's open source under the WTFPL license.
 8)

Now self hosted may eat a tad more band width and would depend on where it's hosted as to additional costs.
I'd be willing to see about setting up a test server to host this running off my internet access.

If we are Grandfathered in? Who's to say some Bean Counter doesn't change that down the road?
Better to be preemptive then get a kick in the nads in a year or so.

Now before anyone thinks it would raise my Internet bill? Don't worry about that!
I have the fastest plan I can get here and don't come close to eating it up!
I did a lot of gaming stuff in the past so I have always had the fastest access I can get.

Well,
If the majority of the membership thinks the map is not worth keeping I understand.
 I also understand that feeling like we have been scammed, or ransomed, or extorted, or whatever floats your particular boat can cause justifiable anger.
 But if they won't grandfather us in, and we do not pay "the Ransom", we will lose that helpful tool we have developed to benefit everyone here. That would be a sad thing in my opinion.
 Trust me, I would much rather go with my typical knee-jerk reaction in anger, and tell them to shove it up their tailpipes,
 But sometimes that is not the best way.

   If we can't get grandfathered in, and with 2000+ members on the map,
 I would think that enough folks could pull together and contribute to keeping the map.
 $200 should not be very hard to raise to keep it for a year.

So for those here who have ever benefited by meeting others to enjoy our sport please help out and hit the donations tab and send what you can. C'Mon guys we are only talking $5 from 40 people to make that happen. Anything more just goes to help keep the GTA going. 

 I'll send in a donation now.

the map is actually not a good representation of the current and active userbase.  I have found that if you look up x number of shooters in an area, many haven't actually been on the forum for a couple years.  And many of the active forum members aren't on the map. But it's a place to start.

I don't know Bill, if you start now I believe you can make it in time.
:)
Would be great to have you there. There's a few traveling farther. But I understand.

That's great that you will make that event. But you really should plan attending our GTA annual Fun Shoot instead. It's all about meeting and shooting with fellow GTA family members.
:)
Thanks for the notice I'll look into that and maybe I can change my plans to meet you all !!!! ;D ;D ;D

hi guys I just joined GTA about a week ago instead of putting my screen name from the forum I used my name and initial from my last name. I'm new to air gunning, as a kid I did have a red ryder bb gun. I have a 25 yard range set up in my yard. I have a marauder .22 cal gen ll syrod and an air venturi compressor. I'd like to hear from fellow Massachusetts air Gunners.

I just added myself here in Tucson. They need to make the instructions a little more clear / user friendly. Or maybe just more "Me Friendly"!

Hello GTA Members,

Been a member for almost three years now.  Like to keep a low profile, but heck, think all my info is already on the Internet anyway.  Just put my location pin on ZeeMaps.

Best to all,
ACZan

Anyone know what the different color pushpins indicate on the map?  Is that by any chance related to the members post number status?

Nope just what color you chose.

Thanks OleTomCat,

Somehow, I missed the color option.  Does it come in camouflage?

I know that you can choose of green. I picked sunrise.
By the way the location I chose is cowboys stadium, not my home address.

 Welcome to the GTA :) I also am in a void of airgunners, there is just a handful I meet with when I can where I live. Nice to meet you , it is nice to have a place like GTA to hang out with other air gunners .
