Vdub created this map and here is a summary of his instructions. PM him if you need help.


On the left side you will see a "scroll bar" with hash marks on it. Pull the scroll bar button down toward the negative sign and that will decrease the zoom level so you see more of the world. Then you will be able to see where people are. If you click on one of the push pins, then it will tell you who that is. Also, you can click on the small double arrow in the left hand corner and it will give you a list of who has put a pin in and you can click on the name on the list to show where they are. You can drag the map around by grabbing it with the left mouse button and them moving the mouse.

If you were interested in a particular pin, then you could keep moving the zoom level in while keeping the push pin centered and get right down to street level placement. However, I have disabled "street-level" because of privacy reasons. You can get to city-level, tho....

To put your own pin in, click on "Additions", then "Add Marker - Simple". Fill in the form and it will put a pin in for you. Let me know if you need additional help. written by VDUB

We have one Norwegian and one Dutch person on here for sure and some from India who probably all have a native language other than English, but I wonder about why none from South America or South Africa but maybe they have their own forums in their own languages.

We had someone from South Africa awhile back. I've forgotten their name and wonder if they still check in. I don't recall seeing anyone from South America, other African countries or Asia.

Medical care in South America is crap compared to what we have in North America. So I would be inclined to think that Wegs goes mostly undiagnosed. And even if it is diagnosed no one down there is experienced enough to treat it properly and so many probably suffer and die. I would also think that most people down there could not affort a computer or internet.
