Hometown Area and Categories.
« on: February 26, 2012, 09:53:14 PM »
I've made some adjustments to the hometown area, Moved some states around and created a new area. Please double check you haven't moved to a new area as a few of you have. We did this to allow for the areas to better match up to allow people to organize nets in your area. We tried to line it up a little better for radio communications. Hope to get you all on the air.

Please let me know if you have any issues.

I just had a thought here ID and AD. What about a map of the US with a dot or something representing a board member in that area. Does'nt need a name or who it is. Perhaps have one color for licensed radio operators and another for the newbies or non-licensed. If a member is inactive on the board for a certain amount of time then they can be removed from the map. It may give people a little better understanding of where resources and/or "friendlies" are located. Just a thought since you were talking geography anyway.

I had thought about that too, but not sure everyone would be comfortable with putting a pin up where they are located.

I thought about that as well. That was why I think just a colored dot ay work. Dont use any names or anything to identify. If a person wants to remain anonymous they can opt not to fill in a state designation. It was just an idea and the mods decision.

Eh, the fedgov already knows I'm between the San Gabriel river and Jonah, Tx on an east-west line.  Doesn't much matter if someone in Az, Ga, Ak, does, and seriously, I'd rather have preppers and HAMs know where I am than most of my neighbors.

Really what we were looking for is the general area just even state is fine so we know what areas people are in to organize roundtables.

I'll tell you what I do find funny is the areas where we get the most people coming in from. Lets just say the liberal strongholds of NY, the Northeast and Cali aren't represented well on the website, also areas in the midwest.  Big daddy government will take care of them I guess ;)

I hope they are planning on the government taking care of them because I sure am not doing it.
there are some good california people, but so many more of the kind that are not helping at all.

I figure it doesn't matter if folks know where I live as NoOne is going to be dropping in, especially any Zombie types, as the last 250 Miles is all Alaska Wilderness. No roads in or out, and access only by Boat or Plane.... and I can see them coming for MILES..... Just Say'en.... YMMV....
