Title: Add yourself to the Mowbetter map!
Post by: Chris on December 01, 2006, 11:45:40 AM
Check it out!!!: http://www.frappr.com/mowbetter

All you need to do is enter your eMail address and create a password, VERY easy signup! Then upload a picture of your mower (or yourself), and you got a pin on the map!


IF YOU DO NOT USE A NAME & PICTURE YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED

Yeah, I don't like that either. It's all the people that signed up and didn't do anything to their accounts :bash:

The map is cool, but what I really like is that slide show thing at the bottom.

I'd like to note, as soon as frappr updates the admin side of the account (they're beta testing new software and it's missing features) EVERY account without a picture will be deleted, no questions asked.

Yeah, frappr is having "issues" since they're upgrading their system. I've sent a few eMails back and forth to the programmers and they reassured me plenty of times that they're working on getting everything back up and running correctly.

I couldn't up load a pic..

Got signed up , have a password, browse and submit foto and it "locks up" on the uploading page...??

Title: Re: Add yourself to the Mowbetter map!
Post by: TheMowinCuban on December 04, 2006, 06:44:17 PM
Squidd, i have that same exact problem...
Title: Re: Add yourself to the Mowbetter map!
Post by: Chris on December 04, 2006, 06:44:38 PM
It does that to me too, it wanted me to add another pin so I did... And then it locked up when uploading the pic.


Hopefully they'll get it fixed soon :bash:

I got the page up, but couldn't login... even after having them send my password so I knew username and password were correct.

That's strange, every thing worked for me except that the picture took about a year to upload and i have a decent internet (DSL).
