I've always found the maps visually clunky. The map part itself isn't an issue, the problem comes once you've got (say) more than 1-2 items on the map. I sometimes like to put lots of points on a map .... and often have to stop adding items as it hits the max limit of points.
e.g. consider a Hub entitled "10 places to go in XYZ town", along with a handy map to demonstrate where they are.
All the addresses below take up too much room.
I propose that there be an additional map formatting option that enables a hub-writer to turn off/omit the address bars under the map and, instead, just make the placemarkers have an onMouseOver event / a ToolTip type of box.
I'll second that. I've had maps with many points on them to the point I had to quit because of the long string of addresses. Unwanted, unneeded, but causing the reader to scroll way down to get to the next capsule.
Just a rollover would usually be preferable to me.
This is a great idea. I'm not sure if it's possible, but I will ask at our next community meeting and let you know! Have a good night!
I third this suggestions. It's the reason I stopped using maps.
We talked about the Map Capsule in our meeting on Tuesday and I created a ticket for our engineers. We all agreed that it would be a great improvement, but we have a lot of other pressing things that they are working on. I don't know how quickly it will happen, but it is in the queue!
Cheers. They've been really annoying. There are a lot of the modules that it'd be good to use ... if only they weren't so annoying
I might list a suggestion for the tables too .....

Other forums ban repeated openers of sockpuppet accounts by their IP address. Can this not be done here?

Folks,I have been to many sites where the designer has used a minimal street map, always black and white - These maps, unlike what you get with Yahoo, Google, or Live maps, where the street names are typically written...

Is there a way on the maps capsule to show a region of the US - the states of Illinois and Wisconsin?It keeps asking for a location - a specific location. I wanted to zoom out and show both Illinois and Wisconsin.
