Hey Simos,
I couldn't add Tehran as a city...
can it be fixed?
Hi Meelad,
I just had a look and I can see that Tehran is included in the city list.

1. Log on to your personal home page,
2. Under the section My Profile, click on "Edit my Basic Profile"
which takes you to
3. Under the section "My Location" choose Not in the US, and
type "Tehran". Apparently they use AJAX so a list of cities will appear dynamically
and you can choose Tehran from there. You can also use the map at that page
to mark precisely your location if you wish to.

Sorry if I'm wrong. But that's my impression when seeing it there.

It's anyone who adds their co-ordinates to the list further down on that
same wiki page.

A few points on GNOMEDev (,
a. It allows the contributor to immediatelly add themselves to the list,
b. They can reposition themselves on the map easily as well. If you go on a trip (Guadec?),
you can update your position while you are there.
c. No need to find coordinates; you can set the city location, then fine-tune to the exact point on the map.
d. You can zoom in/out on the map.
e. Corollary: You can view individual contributors on congested parts of the map. For example,
Europe looks congested now; zoom in and you see each individual user.
f. You can add a thumbnail photo, full size photo as well as related photos.
g. You can add shout-outs. Consider it as a mini-p.g.o. with easy access.

I am not affiliated with the frappr service in any way.

I feel that for marketing purposes (marketing-list AT, it is important
1. get end-users (as opposed to GNOMEDev) added to a similar map as well.
Hmm, see
