Forgive me if this has been answered before but I can't find where if so. I'm curious, why don't I see myself when I search for users on my own zip (54904)? I confirmed that it is correctly entered in my profile, and it has been correct for some time (months and months at least), so I doubt there is any data replication issue. Is this a "feature," are other people still able to see me? Or is there something I need to do to enable my showing up in ohter people's user searches by zip?

Thanks

Hmmm...I just tried the same thing on myself and I didn't show up either. Does anyone see themselves when doing this search?

Lmyrick,

When I went to the "Utilities" menu, then to "Users," then to "Find Gamers," I entered my zip code (10025), and I did in fact came up in the results. I'm sorry, I can't help answer as to why you're not coming up though, but it may be helpful to know that it is working for certain people.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with

much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

I can't see myself either. I asked about this months ago, but I never got a reponse.

When you fill out the info such as user ID, country, zip code and all that stuff there is a checkbox that asks if you want to include your info in the Gamers Database. If you don't check that box you don't show up in the Gamers Database and therefore you don't show up on the map. Now after everything has been altered since the beginning of the year I have no clue where you find this page anymore so you can change this. Anyone know??

I'm having the same problem. In fact, I posted a new thread to that effect today (Jan 27, 06). There have been some bugs since the overhaul that occurred recently. Hmmm...

I don't think this is a bug, it's just that there doesn't seem to be a way for registered users to get back to the page that you have to go through for registration like you used to be able to. Anyway, I know quite a few people on BGG from my area and a lot of them don't show up on the map feature either.

Re: Why don't I show up in a search for users run on my own
FYI I continue to have this problem, and still do not see an option in my profile to include myself in the gamer database (if that's what the issue is?)
