OK, let's see what happens with this... and if I've done it correctly.

In an effort to make it easier for the "Hearing Things" group, I've created an Axiom Audio Forum Members Map.

When you, as an existing forum member, visit the map, click the "Add" button near the top right.

You'll be presented with a dialog to submit your location, some further optional details (I used the Description to note which speakers I own), and you can even add more content on the Media tab if you'd like. Be as specific or as general as you'd like; it's up to you.

The end result of this potentially on-going exercise is that it could be much easier for new folks to hear what we know to be great sound. More sales for our dear Axiom friends benefits us all, right?

Sound like a good idea? Comments?

Providing an inventory of your house, and directions to it may not be the best idea.

Maybe I'm paranoid, but I don't even list my exact city name on here.

Understood Chris. My marker isn't near my home either, but in town is good enough for this purpose. Heck, even the next town isn't bad, as you say.

no biggy, If you look at Amie's sticky thread at the top of this section, there is a link to the Axiom Map. I suppose more wouldn't hurt. The problem with the other one is I can't figure out how to edit my information, I asked Axiom a long time ago with no reply.

I think I missed a step on ZeeMap, something about "publishing" the map. So if you've added yourself to the map, or wanted to, you might need to do it again. I've revised the original link as necessary for the "published" version. Sorry folks.

Damn map noobie.

Yeah, we did that in Canada. It's called the firearms registry. In theory the security has been fixed so that gangs are not using it so much for "steal-to-order" break-ins, but they still seem to be happening.

EDIT - added my name to the map

I guess the previous map isn't too hard to find.... it's listed right at the beginning of Amie's' post that lists members state-by-state. I DO remember that it wasn't Amie who started it, she just took the person up on the offer to put the link there.

Either way, as I mentioned earlier, it's several years out of date.

you could always put in the address to the closest police station or jail... then if someone wanted to go to your "house" to steal your speakers they would be in for a surprise!

Yeah steel toed combat boots vs flip flops. And I even picked a different colour thinking the map would offset it a little so you could see both.

Just for the record, when I entered the Town of Dwight, Zeemaps switched it to "Lake of Bays" which is the name of the Township. This includes the three communities of Dwight, Dorset and Baysville. Axiom is on the North side of Hwy 60 looking Southwards over the Northernmost bay of Lake of Bays. \:\)

We used to be an Island totally covered in huge hardwood trees. Now it's all housing or farmland with pine and spruce in between. There is still a smattering of hardwood mixed in but it's definitely the minority. Sad really. Nothing nicer than a huge 100 year old oak tree.

Oddly enough, the one thing I'll miss most if I move would be the Burr Oak I planted in the front yard about 18 yrs ago. The squirrels and blue jays love it more than I do though \:D . Every year they're fighting over the acorns!

Loc: Columbus, OH
Kruncher,
I have added my info but am now having second thoughts about giving my specific info & a map to my location. How can I edit the entry to be less specific regarding location?
Thanks
