i found this thread - http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … -you-from/.
While i was reading this thread i have the idee.
Would it be possible to build a Usermap from the forum accounts?
It would be interesting to see where #! is used.
You can take a loot of this example what i'm mean...
You can get some information in the drop down menu list from User List
I am not sure what a User Map would provide for anyone, perhaps you could expand on your idea?
If you build it, they will come...
Words That Build Or Destroy
My idea is to have a world map - google map for example - and a pin in every city from every user.
So we can see the #!-population all over the world..
It would be picture of the crowing #!-community.
And if i travel to a city and see there are #!-users. I can PM them to get information from the city.
And if i see there are #!ers in my area, maybe meet them..

There is something for Linux in general already. Take a look:
Of course, you have to fill in your details and many would have to do this but you will give your data away.
Edit: You can even search by distros but guess it, #! is not there.

Fedora does the same thing with their Fedora Ambassadors.
And like ivanovnegro says, in this case you have to put in your location (longitude/latitude), if I remember correctly (and just checking it now, I'm still on the map, meaning they don't update it very frequently, since I haven't been active in Fedora for nearly two years).
Aside from the curiosity factor, <mode="just_kidding">the only way it might help me personally is to see which CrunchBangers are near an upcoming Linux expo so I can draft them into helping out at the booth </mode>
