    Let your fellow members know what area you live in and let's find out what areas of the Cities are the strongest represented.


    How to add your location to the TCMAS map:

    • Go to your settings by clicking on your username above the TCMAS Banner
    [​IMG]


    On the left you see several options under "Settings"


    [​IMG]



    • Fill out the Map location field under "Personal Details" and save it.
    It is an autofill field. Just start typing with your street etc. You can include the housenumber but not required.
    We added this "Map location" field in addition to the regular "Location" field for privacy concerns you might have. The regular Location field is visible in several sections on the forum. The Map Location one is nowhere visible

    • Go to " Privacy" and tick the box where it asks to be shown on the map and save


    [​IMG]




    • In the Navigation bar under "Community" you see the link to the "User Map" and your location should be visible there now

    Added my map location.

    I however do not see the privacy map section in my profile.
    Just "Date of Birth" details, and "People Who May"

    Also the User Map does not give permission to view.

    Both the Privacy Map section and Map itself are now viewable for me.

    Wow. You are way up there. Are there any good LFS in your area?

    Closest LFS is I think the place in cloquet, I was told it used to be great but the times I've been there were enough to not buy anything or bother going back. Next closest is forest lake pets which is what it is, I mostly just make the trek to new wave and or saltwater empire.
    I do need to go check out the places in St. Cloud, newer within the last couple years and I've heard good things.
