What info from my profile is used to generate my map marker, and how can I opt out if I wish to do so?

you have to add your marker on the map manually, I believe...

It uses your town and state only....the marker is placed completly random. You can zoom in and see that it is random.

And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

So if it's random, there is a statistical chance that it will be exactly where your house is. Wink

Yeah, it's automatic. I'm not sure how it works...it's a new page manager page that works off of Google's API somehow. I just thought it was neat and didn't take up any plugin space! Big Grin

That is kind of cool! It puts everyone that has the same city in the same marker! Nice to see who all is in your area but still doesn't list addresses or anything. Our profile system does not ask for addresses or any other secure personal info.
