    The Arbalist Guild - Around the World

    Post by Ivo on Sun Jul 31, 2011 7:36 pm

    First topic message reminder :

    Good Day Forum! sunny

    Today I would like to bring you something I've been wanting to do for a long time. It started out as a simple visitor counter(which I threw aside as soon as I thought about it), next on my mind was a visitor map that simply reflected little nameless dots on a post stamp sized map (also didn't suffice). And finally!!! Today I figured out the map that would work perfectly for The Arbalist Guild and it's members.

    View The Arbalist Guild in a larger map

    Just out of curiosity I put together our very own Atlas and placed myself on the map and hope you guys will join me. Simply PM me or post below your rough location (Country, State and/or City) and I will place you on our map. Though I'm already acquainted with most of you, I didn't place anyone else on the map yet. I respect everyone's privacy and will only add you if you wish it. Any additional information is always welcome...If you have a workshop/club/etc. you are more than welcome to include these details in the post or PM and it will be included in your marker description.

    Hope you guys enjoy this little addition to the forum and help me show the world that it's full of fantastic craftsmen that you are. cheers

    Best Regards,

    Ivo

    PS: This topic is Labeled "Global Announcement" and will appear in every forum along with other important "stickied" topics.
