You know how when you search for players, there's pins showing everybody's locations? I think it would be really cool if there was a world map version of that, that showed everybody registered to the site!

There are ways of making that work, but the "pins" would have to be grouped together into single icons and not shown individually. Having thousands of pins on the map at a single time can really bog down your machine. Also, technically, at the moment, the map displays the members who matched your search and are on the current page. So, if there were more than 300 matches and it went into another page, you are only viewing the 300 from the first page at one time.
