    [New users - please take note]
    I appreciate people buying this - I really do. It goes into the beer fund and helps develop it more.
    When you do purchase it, you'll get a confirmation from PayPal but not from FetchApp. For reasons no one seems to be able to work out, FetchApp does not work for me.
    I will email the install to you within an hour or so of getting the PayPal email. Please do not open disputes with paypal within 31.5 seconds of paying. It's boring.

    See the FAQ for various how-tos

    [APIs used] (Your server will talk to the outside world)
    Google maps API
    The geo-encoding uses the Google Maps API.

    See for details: https://developers.google.com/maps/pricing-and-plans/#details

    Note: mass-updates will most likely breach the free API calls and you'll have problems.

    Registration IP encoding
    This is done through www.ip-api.com
    They allow 150 requests a minute. The add-on slees for 500ms between calls so cannot possibly breach that.
    Please see their other terms of use: http://ip-api.com/docs/#usage_limits

    Various members who patiently helped find bugs and feature suggestions

    Support will be given as quick as possible. Normally within a day or two. I work full time, I have a family and I do occasionally go on holiday - sometimes I won't answer you as quick as you would like. Be polite, I'll certainly get to helping you.

    [Continued development]
    I will continue to grow this add-on. There are many features I want to add to it as I get time. I use it on my own sites so it will happen.
    If you have ideas, feedback and suggestions, do let me know. Some I can act on quickly, some may take a bit of time. I will note them all.

    Using the mass-update with registration IP might upset some people. It will grab their location based on where they registered from. If they wanted to remain publicly anonymous then this would not be cool.
    I accept no liability for anything bad.

    [Be kind]
    This is my first paid-for add-on. We all learn. Be an idiot and I'll give you your money back and walk away. I've no time for whiners. having said that, I will do my utmost to help out. I hate paying for sub-standard things.

    I accept non. This add-on is provided without warranty, liability and damages. You, as an admin, enable this software, you know what it does. It's yours :)

    The intention behind this has been with good intent. If I have screwed something up with the opensource distribution or APIs - it was not on purpose. Let's talk.

    Enjoy -

    Happy to talk.

    This map provides tremendous value to our users. I've used other systems and this is by far the best I've used.

    The user map is a great add-on (and well substitute the map I had installed before migrating to XenForo) and you'll get an outstanding support from the developper which is absolutely worth its price :-)

    Great App and Support! Didn't expect it to keep getting better! Only issue I had was with the Google Maps API with Secure Sockets Layer and offered the Developer a few extra beer bucks to hop on my server to fix it for me! He explained everything in full detail about what he did!

    Version: 3.0
    One of the best supported add-ons on XF I know. First version already had everything what other map add-ons have, now in version 3 it's just full of features, works like a charm and author responses quickly. Starting with the Google Map keys seems a little tricky but help of community and author is great. Will import all 3000 users from vB "Membermap by Vossi" into this map, which is much, much better and more comfortable. Really great add-on - get it!

      Thanks for the review. :) I'll help out with the import of your old map.

    Version: 3.0
    Version 3.0 now includes features that are unique here at XF: Google Map styling and customization – on top of the previously included custom pin feature for user groups – plus many more. Highly recommended.

    Version: 2.9
    We replaced an earlier map service to use this one. Since almost all Map add-ons are forgotten or left behind, i was glad to see there's a new star on the sky who continuously develop this highly demanding feature. The current version 2.9 is pretty good on features and we received blazing fast help to our support request over the weekend! Highly recommended thingie :) Keep up the good work Crispin

    Finally a user map addon that actually does what it says on the tin. Solid functionality and the author appears to be very active and quick to respond which to me is the most important aspect of any XF addon.
