As 73Delta88 already knows, I am working on setting up a map, using Google. I've got the map up (not linked yet...not done), and the zip code database, which has latitude and longitude coordinates, as well as City and State. The plan is the you'll only need to enter your zip code (in your profile, not there yet), and you'll have a marker on the map, which says your city, state, and any text that you want to enter.

Basically like Frappr, but integrated into our site.

Well, it's still under construction...the whole zip code thing didn't work out too well, so it's point and click your location. You go in your profile to add yourself to the map.

Pretty neat Brando. I kinda prefer the point and click for location. It can be more accurate in findigng where a member lives. For example, my Zip may be a town, but I live 10-15 miles out. Ok, im probably not making sense, but the map is cool anyways...

Makes perfect sense, that's exactly the reason for the point and click, when I tried the zip code database, 73delta88 gave me his zip code, and the coordinates they had for his zip, was way off from the CITY that he actually lived in.
