in thread Monks' Maps!

That was my "check in radius" idea. A dot on a map will not help me much to ascertain their identities. If i can msg (chatterbox) a bunch of monks in a certain radius, I can elecit a positive or negative response and plan accordingly. Only when they SHOW UP to the Quakefest, will i find out what they look like- but whoever said we have to use REAL names? (Do you think my name is AgentM? :-) )

(kudra: no mass-msg spam) RE(4): Monks' Maps!

    An unsolicited message sent to me by someone who doesn't even know who I am sounds like spam to me. I dislike mass-mailings even if the sender knows who I am. I am therefore completely opposed to being able to send chatterbox messages to more than one person, particularly to a group specified by some quality other than a user-specified one (such as a list of people who all happen to be your friends).

    Why not just make a post mentioning an event, so that those who are interested can respond, and those who aren't are left alone? It's worked pretty well for other events.

    As for determining the distribution, maybe jcwren will come up with something that scans homenodes and generates a distribution map...

    Radius can get pretty uncertain if they're eyeballing their location on a map. I'd really suggest coordinates.
