I’ll be happy to @annmoore, if you tell me where you are!
Could you put me on too please. I’m in Glais, north of Swansea. Diolch.
Haha, trust me to forget the most important bit! I live in Gorslas near Crosshands. Thank you
@Sionned: Helo Sionned, may I request you to put me on the map? I will be in SA48 8DY until the 5th of March only, maybe it makes more sense if you put my home address in - then you won’t have to change it again in a few weeks… my home address is 47475 Kamp-Lintfort, Germany.
Diolch yn fawr!!
… and… how can I contact people near me??? Is there any chance to find out if they are still “active”? Diolch!
@Ingrid.L - All the names on the map are “forum” names. We’ve been expanding and expanding the map for years so, as you might guess, some of the people are no longer active on the forum. To find out, when you look at an area of the map with markers, you can click on any marker and a flag will pop up with, at least, a name in bold at the top. (Sometimes there’s also more information.) Copy that name (exactly) and then go to the forum and click on the magnifying glass up near the right corner. That’s the search function. Put that name that you copied into the search. If the person is still here, the name will show up at the bottom of the results list. Click on it there and you’ll get to that person’s profile. From there you can send a direct message to that person. If the name doesn’t show up in the list, it is probably an old name from the old forum of someone who has since left. Hope that helps. Try it out with your own forum name.
I’d like to be added to the map too. I’m in Gwaelod-y-Garth, CF15 9HZ
I didn’t think to give a post code. I’m SA7 9EX. Sorry.
A post code is absolutely not necessary. It might get you closer to where you actually are, at least in Britain. Or it might try to put you out in the middle of a farm field, as this one did, though to be fair, it is the field at the end of your road (I think).
Anyone who has asked for a marker (to this point) is on the map(s). If you look for your marker and would like it relocated some, even if it is just something like “move it two houses west,” just let me know.
Please add me to the map ,I live near Mold in north wales
I sent Sionned a message three days ago to ask her to add me to the SSIW map but still haven’t got a reply. I do struggle with this forum too so I may be doing it wrong. I live in Henllan, Llandysul. I’m enjoying the course so far but would like to connect with some others locally who are also just beginning the 2 year course.
Diolch yn fawr, Sionned
@diane-mathias - I put a marker on the map for you the day you set me a message. I don’t normally respond to each request (because there are too many), but I do always “like” (heart) the post or message where the person asked to be on the map. Take a look at the map - you’ll find a marker with your name on it in Henllan. I’m sorry if you thought I was ignoring you! I really wasn’t.
Thank you very much Sionned.
And Sionned does all of this - one of the most endlessly fascinating parts of SSiW - out of the kindness of her heart…
Thank you for putting me on, Sionned. That field is at the end of my road, as you said, but it appears to be right in the middle of the road now anyway, so thanks for that. It’s fascinating looking at all the martkers on the maps.
Please add me to the map. I’m in Medford, Massachusetts, zip code 02155 (just outside Boston). Diolch! : )
Wow! I have friends who live in Medford . . .
Sounds like a good excuse to visit your friends … and arrange a Welsh chat over coffee
Hmm, at 1000 miles away, I think it not very likely any time soon.
