    and all the placemarks got lost.....

    so, here is a new one, there's only me on it so far....

    OK this link works now

    MyLesPaul Forum - Google Maps

    EDIT: IMPORTANT: READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS


    This is the easiest way.

    Once you have opened the link and are logged in with a google account, find where you want your place mark BEFORE you do anything else

    Once you have zoomed in on your chosen location, click the EDIT button

    DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE TITLE AND DESCRIPTION BOXES ON THE LEFT

    Click on the blue balloon thing at the top of the map, move your mouse to your location then click again

    Fill in your name and any note you want to add in the balloon that pops up, then click OK

    On the left, where the EDIT button was, click DONE

    that's it.

    Oh no..that's a shame :(


    I just checked your link Drude, and it just gives me a World map, no placemark for you.
    Maybe it is the site, a glitch or something.

    Just checked it to and it brings you to the general world map as provided by Google.

    I tried to get back onto the original map the other day... I thought it was me not doing something right when it didn't come up. I've just tried your link and got the world map as well.

    So what are you going to do? Replace link with the other one and re-placemark everyone, or start anew?

    Everyone will have to re-add themselves unfortunately

    Maybe this can be merged, and the link edited in my original post, or something

    The third link you posted worked for me, Drude. How do we add ourselves?

    You need to sign in with a Google account, click edit and add your place marker to a spot you choose. Best not to use your actual address, somewhere nearby will do.
