Sue, I beat Roos to it and have added you (sorry, Roos!), you look like a speck in the Channel!

We are only a speck in the Channel! That is great, now people will know where the Channel Islands are situated, and how we are closer to France than to the UK. Many thanks.

This is a neat thing! However, I messed up and am on the list twice:(....is there a way to remove one of them? My mailing address is one of the towns I put but I actually live closer to the other. Doesn't really matter which one stays or goes..

It won't accept me - keeps telling me it's an invalid city and offers me other cities of the same name in the States.

Skunkee, under the box labelled 'City' is a link that says 'Not in US'. Click there, and it open up the rest of the world.

And I am not sure if you can delete/edit an entry once it is submitted, Cinnamon- I cannot see any appropriate buttons.

Nah. I thought we had a member in Belgium who didn't give her screen name! I thought it a unfortunate place to live.

The only time I went to Belgium was many years ago, was taken short and 'went' behind a bush and was somewhat startled when a man walked past and greeted me!

I looked at the FAQs and it says the person who created the map can delete things, so I'll PM NalaMarie and see if she can fix my goof!

Oz I tried that the first time, and just went and tried it again. It still keeps telling me that it's an invalid city, and offers me other Burlingtons in the States...sniff!

Skunkee, are you close to Hamilton, because it recognizes Hamilton, Ontario (Canada). Maybe you could use that.

I get the same result as Sue, when I click 'not in the USA' nothing happens, hardly even a screen 'shudder'! Is it anything to do with me using a mac?

No, I use a PC and tried it with both Netscape and IE.

Not sure if it is something to do with security levels.

The only change which happens when you click on 'not in the USA' is that the 'zipcode' field changes to 'city'. After you type a few letters of your city, a drop down box should come up with your choices.

Yes Polaris, that's what happens. But my city is not one of the choices, and it still doesn't work when I try to add the province or country name.

Skunkee, have you considered moving to a Burlington in the US?

Can't you pick a town nearby? There must be something near you that's listed!

I know, you poor thing . I tried it too. Did you see my earlier post about Hamilton? Maybe you use that one.

Skunkee, under the FAQs, they say they're getting lots of reports of missing Canadian and other cities (I wonder where they went ). You can add your city to the City Request List.

Or Leau's suggestion would work

Ummm, I don't think moving is really an option, and forgive me for being...territorial, you might say, but I'd rather not pretend that I lived in Hamilton. If you knew the two cities, you'd understand why.
Perhaps I'll look and see if I can find that request list though!

skunkee, maybe they've got Mississauga. Surely it's overgrown Burlington by now?

The darn thing gave me trouble too, nothing happened when I clicked on "Not in the US". Then, it caused a worse problem, (or I assume it had something to do with it, as it happened right after). It wouldn't let me back out of the page, just gave me the little 'wait' signal, so I decided to shut down that page, and come back to Futnrivia on a new page. Well, I clicked on Netscape, which is what I use, and instead of my usual home page coming up, I got a 'registar now' page, and had to reregister to get onto Netscape. Now all my bookmarks and cookies are lost.

I added myself earlier, debated whether to put my picture on, decided it was better to keep an air of mystery, and them my computer crashed. Oh wellity. I'm there now.

Well, harumph ! I get this big white screen with links...I hit the links...nothing happens. I typed in my zip and shoutout. Imagine what happened next? Nothing. It's a very nice white screen, though, I must say ....
