    Great to see the map growing and more locations added each day! Thanks for all additions so far. It's been a bit of a bumpy first week of the new locations feature but with some tweaking it's getting better every day! Today, I have added some more enhancements: the geocoder has been tweaked and should now recognise much more locations. I have also improved the owners/wishlisters page (in the archive), especially the map view and icons. I'm quite happy with the results, hope you'all like them too!

    Very much so. Thanks for all the hard work!

    Hmm. Hey, Robin, what do you think about actually composing an XML format just for map locations and games? IPDB numbers for best compatibility with everything else, of course...

    Oh, and I should have another couple of hundred locations in Cascadia and elsewhere in the next week or so...

    Ouch. XML is not my strongpoint - I tried fabricating something directly from the database and sent it to your e-mail.

    XML isn't all that hard to get, really. If you know strict HTML structure you're almost there! I'll try to come up with an extended tagset based on what you've sent me and we should be good to go!

    And it's a good database you've sent over, too! Just have to do a little bit of picking here and there and some blanks to fill in, but it's all going up on the Maps just the same!

    Hi, this is the best pinball locator I came across on the web. I added some locations in Switzerland and Europe. However, there seems to be a problem with foreign language special characters such as german umlaute (ä,ö,ü) or french (é,è,...). Generally, the locations containing such characters wont being shown on the map and it is no longer possible to edit them (although it seems that they are in the database).
    Also, if a location is not recognized by the system and thus is not shown on the map, it is not possible to edit it. (or is there a workaround)?

    Keep up the good work and building up the database!

    Confirmed. I will see if I can fix this issue this week! Thanks for notifying me about it!

    Great! Thank you and good luck!

    I just added some places in the Akron/Cleveland area so it doesn't look like such a pinball wasteland. It was an easy, painless process.
