A suggestion, on the transport map...would it be possible to add a toggle to filter out "done" or "completed" transports?

It already does. Can you give me an example of one that is showing up but done?

To be done - the original poster needs to mark the thread as done, then someone manually sees those and moves them to the done forum (pretty quickly, I might add.. I've had them marked done and moved before I even landed back home).

I was apparently looking at one that was not yet moved... I am sure the ones I was looking at are gone now.

I was trying to use the volunteer map to find pilots to help with my transport request and it doesn't seem to be working as mentioned in the original post. Please advise. Thanks!

What did you put in and what did it give? What were you expecting?

In the volunteer map section I clicked on "Pilots", I put in a zipcode and choose within 200 miles. It would bring up pins in some areas, but when I click on them, it just brought me in closer on the map and didn't give me any contact information to reach out to that pilot either privately or through the Forum. Was I reading the earlier message incorrectly on how this volunteer map works?

If you get a pin with a number on it, there are multiple pilots in that area. You have to keep clicking down until you see the airplane/airplane+house icon.

Hi again,
try it now - http://www.pilotsnpaws.org/maps/maps_volunteers.php

There was a change in the google-maps usage that was only showing up in specific situations... I think its fixed now.

Let me know.

I went in again. I clicked on one of the blue circles with a number which apparently means more than one volunteer listed in the community. However, when the map zooms closer, there is no legend showing a little airplane, a house for foster home, etc. Nothing to click on or see any contact information for a volunteer. Am I missing something?
