I got as far as placing my chip on the map, but then it wanted too much info so I gave up.

It seems like there should be more Amiga users just from Amiga.org! I added my 2 cents...
I just left some fields blank - it accepted my addition...

I lied on mine. Standard practice for trivial matters.

I'm confused, is this a map for minimig users or Amiga users? I mean it says minimig.net.

They never added me.

It shows AmiKit being in Eugene, OR, in the United States.

Is that the same AmiKit that posts on Amiga.org and Amigaworld.net? As their user profiles on both sites say they are in Europe.


Would be great to find another user in Eugene, but with me still not being added, and Amikit showing up on the wrong continent, I'm starting to doubt the validity/accuracy of this map.

Maybe Spain is where British expats live and España is where Spaniards live?

To repeat something I wrote elsewhere about this:

Regarding personal information: For example in finland a website is mandated by law to maintain a privacy policy document which will explain the contact information of the registry maintainer, the specifics about the actual information maintained, the purpose for maintaining the registry, and to who and under what circumstances can the information be disclosed.

I'm sure having such document around would alleviate some fears people have about disclosing their private information.

I generally don't have a problem providing personal info when there's a good reason, but they really don't seem to have one for requesting all that info. Phone number? Are they gonna give me a call to make sure I put my marker in the right spot on the map?

But anyway, they were nice enough to accept fake information.

Hi Save,

I added myself on the map, so you know where I live now. I say this because I live a few miles from you actually. He he.

For those who would want to steel my antique computers, I work from home and I know chai-t. Hatchaaaaa!
