On behalf of the AmiBay team, I would like to formally announce that the following members have been promoted to Moderator status.

TheCorfiot - Wales, UK
Fingerlickin_B - Belco, Australia
Musashi5150 - Norfolk, UK
Keropi - Ioannina, Greece
T_Hairy_Bootson - Melbourne, Australia
Rkauer - Brazil
Adonay - Norway
Coze - Tokyo, Japan
Shoonay - Kaczyce near Cieszyn, Poland
SkydivinGirl - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.
Charlie - Liverpool, UK.
Imnogeek - Leicestershire, UK.

This should give us far better moderation of the site around the clock and also means that some valuable hardware and software knowledge has been added, which means better technical support from the team.

This should take AmiBay to a whole new level and I am proud to say a big welcome to the new Moderators, on behalf of the team.

Here's the AmiMap attached, showing where the team is located:

That is very true. Looks like Norway must have finally invaded Denmark, or possibly even the very northern part of Germany! :lol:

Welcome to all our new moderators. :)

Ah, cool, a map with the users locations, nice.

Although I can't seem to find me place as there are no country-specific-outlines, so here is me place (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=polska&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=48.240201,79.101563&ie=UTF8&ll=49.837844,18.593725&spn=0.000583,0.001717&t=h&z=20) :mrgreen:
(and if you look close enough, somewhere like... 7 pixels next to that big white pile of pixels in the upper right corner of the house, you can see me waving "hello" :))



Still, that map here is far better then M$'s point of view on non-existant Poland, lookie here, lol:

As time permits, can you update the map with Shoonay's location and remove Teho's?

Thanks mate.

I could at least help a bit by editing the 1st post, not much I can do with the pic...
How about uploading a totally clean version and the last one used somewhere Harrison, for future modifications, so we could do it ourselves ;)

Merlin
31st March 2009, 16:40
Ok Shoonz, here's a blank map....

Sorry for being a party-pooper... :p

May I suggest we use one of these maps (http://www.projecttres.org/world-map-in-vector-formats/) instead of the current one?
I'm especially after the country outlines, because finding some smaller ones a killer now ;)
My favorite is the colorful (Adobe World Map (http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm?event=extensionDetail&loc=en_us&extid=1045387#)), but the Freemap JP (http://english.freemap.jp/world_e/7.html) looks even better. 8)

Merlin

@ Shoonay

If you want to sort out a better looking map, go ahead mate.. I've no objections.

The original one was a quick fix.

Shoonay
1st April 2009, 14:17
Cool, I'll try it.

Shoonay
1st April 2009, 15:00
Okays, how about this?

@Shoons

That is very pretty to look at, great update, kinda psychadelic, funkee.. :D

@Merlin

I was hoping keropi would have replied & translated by now....
It means "Why, Have you done a doo doo ?" :wink:

"cough", gosh that's spreading quickly :lol:

TC :mrgreen:

Shoonay
1st April 2009, 16:51
Glad you like it ;)

If anyone happens to be misplaced a bit, please do inform me, it's no problem, I've got this saved as layers in Paint.net 8)

A couple of members are pointed to the wrong countries.

Keropi is being located in Albania on the map, where as it should be Greece below it.

And Adonay is pointing to Denmark, where as it should be Norway above it.
