Hello all. I've been on SN about a year or so now. Passed the test, verified account, etc.

I can log into the windows application and my current GPS location is being updated successfully every attempt. However, I never get my little green dot on the map. I've checked my various profile settings, and I don't feel like I'm missing anything, but I could be wrong.

I've made a couple attempts, and have never seen myself come up on the map. Are there more steps that I need to take?

Thank you

When you are beconing are you showing up in this file: http://www.spotternetwork.org/feeds/gr-all.txt ?

That file is a dump of all positions and reports (formatted for use in Gibson Ridge).

Are you showing up in http://www.spotternetwork.org/feeds/gr-p.txt ?

That file is a dump of all members with 5 Acceptable or better reports in past 12 months. This might help you debug the issue. I only use it in RadarScope, so if that doesn't help - maybe someone else can help you.

Yes, I am showing up in the first file. Not in the second though, as I haven't submitted 5 reports. Is that a requirement for being plotted on the map? My contact info is complete. Still no luck.

Thanks

Jeremy,
When you refer to 'the map' what are you referring to? GR? RadarScope? Something else? We integrate with many vendors so that is a key piece of information. If you're talking about the map on our website, that is a filtered map to only those who have reported because of the map size anything more would be unwieldy.
