    Again, I would think this is because I used a bogus location, except some of the others who have either no location listed on their profile or use a bogus location DO show up......according to the map, you live under a bridge, BDCA :p

    I'll remove that after I know you've seen it, but it does seem the map has a general idea of where you live, even without any location stated in your profile. o_O

    (Reason I double posted was I needed to show two screenshots, but the second one broke until I gave it it's own post, so I am assuming new accounts are supposed to be limited on their image imbedding to prevent spam. Sorry if this is technically breaking rules or circumventing restrictions...)

    I can't see my location or name on the map or list at all, I never intended to add one either and my location is simply "UK". Are you guys sure you have location sharing disabled in your browsers?

    We have no such restriction. Sometimes the image imbedding is just wonky.

    Firefox user here, not on mobile at the moment nor using Googleweb (aka Chrome). I'm not seeing an option for location sharing....I'll have to check and see if that's something I need to get an Add-on for. :V

    Well okay then. I removed and re-embedded the second one several times, and each time it was broken, so I just thought it was a thing to regulate spam or bots. o_o

    Apart from those two, I don't know. I'm not sure why I've not shown up there and others have without realising. I just always thought it was a manual add thing.

    Hmm,

    I wasn't aware it would add you automatically, though I guess if its asking for a location share that may be why.

    Well, considering I never had to deal with a site gathering my location information and posting it publicly, that would be something I had not known about. Interestingly, I somehow already have it set to block the site from using that data.....I guess there's my answer as to why I'm not showing up and others with both real, bogus, and no listed location are showing.

    All aboard the Mozilla Train! :'D

    Yeah, that'd certainly be a good explanation. I use firefox, so I'm good, not that'd I'd have a problem with someone here at my door :3

    Hehe, you're always welcome, though I've only got the one bed, so any guests get to share >w>

    owo;
    I was completely being silly, I swear!......though now I am tempted to actually try and accomplish that feat of a trip (I don't have a car, and money is scarce). After letting my boyfriend know, of course, since we're in an open long distance relationship but agreed to discuss things like that with each other. >w>

    i have mine only listed as 'Pennsylvania' and not shared location when it asked (just did), and the marker is just north of my hometown (Kittanning) but even so i (very gladly) don't live in town.
