Hi all My first post here, after lots of reading (and buying). I live very far from most of you, in Brasil. I tried to include my location in Google Maps, don´t know if I succeeded. Sorry for my English. Best regards Eduardo

Welcome,

yes, you're there on the map, looks like you have a continent for yourself Smile.

Thanks for the nice TX welcome!

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

I’m one of the few non-engineer types in Silicon Valley, and yet I’m the only flashaholic from BLF? Hard to believe.

My name is indy, and I've been a flashaholic since 2004.

Trying to add my location (Worcester, MA).  I accidentally deleted the directions while thinking I was editing my location.  Please someone help me out here!

Figured out how to edit my location, but there still remains the issue of the deleted directions.  Sorry, my bad!

If anyone is interested, you can also edit your pushpin icon to anything you want.

Can you "close" without saving what you did?  CTRL-Z to undo what you did?

well, now that was convenient, metal-lord

and for future reference, instructions backed up here:
BLF Members Map
A map of approximate locations of BLF members.

Feel free to add your location:
1. Use the search box to locate your city, state, and country.
2. On the marker that appears, you’ll see a link that says ’Save to maps‘ within the bubble.
3. Click the link and select the ‘BLF Members’.

Optional steps for advanced users:
4. Click ‘View map’
5. Click ‘Edit’
6. Select the pushpin (added in step 2&3)
7. Edit ‘Title’ & ‘Description’ to include your user name and city, state & country (for example ‘the – Helsinki, Finland’)
8. Click ‘Done’

Enjoy!!!

Hey! What about South America? What's the deal here? Where's SB?

Does this require a google account? To create one, they want a phone number to send a verification code.

As far as I remember you don’t need phone number. I just set one up for my mother the other day. I don’t believe so.

I expected more, but there's only 1 member listed from latin america, and 1 more from Spain.  Maybe there's not as much crossover between blf and fotolinternas as I thought.

The low mode should be lower.

Probably depends on what personal information you already have linked to your backup email address. That’s what their FAQs seem to indicate.

Did I do it correctly? Am I on? Smile (Hahahah. Randomly clicking on the island, I was about a quarter away from where I used to live a few years ago. Silly )

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile
