Owners Map

I haven't looked at the Owners Map (why no apostrophe??) in quite some time. What has happened to it? There are only three colors and the key is all goofy.

Looks a mess.
The problem is, I think anybody can edit it, and somebody did.

I've inquired if it is possible to restore the map to a previous version. Hope so.

There is a long discussion about this issue here: owner's map..

A member set up this map and retains control, not the forum administration. I see the map and it seems to be ok? Is the issue the pin colors?

I have said before, that I believe what we need is something that is not editable. We would just need one person, or maybe a couple, that handle it. It would not be a bad idea that the site team could access should it be needed too. Other than the initial setup, all it would take is a PM from someone with a new trailer, or change of trailer or location, to send a PM with the details they would like to do, and for the map master to add them, which would take very little time. They could also send a picture if they want one included, though it seems very few use that feature.

Right now with anyone being able to change anything on the maps, all it takes is for someone to make some simple global map error, and mess everything up.

Map belongs to Codeman. He set it up.
Individuals update it. Codeman backs it up from time to time so it can be restored.
