I Need Help Testing My Paintball Field Map

[October 8th 2018, for anyone reading this, don't worry. I haven't forgotten or abandoned this project. I'll revisit it when I have a sustainable income, so I can pay the monthly fee to keep the map open or when an alternative presents itself.]
Hello all.

I am attempting a rather large feat. I would like to get every active paintball field on one map!

As I got into paintball, I found it difficult to find local/small paintball fields. It felt like a sort of either-you-know-or-don't sort of thing, and I didn't like that. I figure paintballers across the country have the same problem. So I made this map to help everyone; You, your fellow paintballers, and of course, field owners.

I am currently testing different map sites and, as this project can only really be possible through crowd sourcing, I need your help.

If your reading this, please take a moment to add fields that you know of to the map.

This small test is only intended to cover the southwest, but I have no issue with anyone adding a marker outside the test area.

Please be sure to only add a paintball field if you're absolutely sure its active.

Please be sure to check if the field your about to add is already on the map before you add a marker.

When marking a new location please click "Add Marker - Detailed" Don't worry its not very complex.

Please try to add a description with your marker if at all possible. Things like, when they open, prices, a brief statement on quality of service, or anything else you'd like to add. Alternatively you could simply add a link to their website, provided their website has all the necessary info. (If the paintball field does not have a website but they do have a Facebook page, feel free to add it in the "website" box.)

Be careful using an address when adding a marker. If the field is not immediately adjacent to an official road, the map will automatically choose the closest local business and place your marker on that.

Please be careful not to double post your marker.

The Red marker is for fields I haven't verified yet. Please use this marker color as your primary marker color. The Gray marker is for locations that need a better description. Please use this marker when you can't find the field info.



After you have a look around the map please let me know what you think, how it could be improved, or any general thoughts/statements/opinions/problems etc.

Currently, anyone may add a marker without the need of a password. However, I must approve any additions manually. This may change.

Recent Changes I've Made To This System:
3/30/2018
Created the map.
4/2/2018
Turned off the setting that allowed the description for markers to pop up when your cursor touches them. It was pretty irritating.
4/3/2018
All marker colors other than Red, Black, and Brown are reserved for the admins. (I am currently the only admin. I will likely accept trustworthy people as admins in the future.)
All markers made larger and easier to click.
"Description Needs Details" marker color changed from brown to gray to differentiate it from red.
4/5/2018
Discovered that only 100 visits may be made to the map before the map "freezes" and my access is cut off. (Working on pulling the money together to unfreeze it.)

Territories That Have At Least One Marker:
1)Alabama
2)California
3)Louisiana
4)Maryland
5)Massachusetts
6)Minnesota
7)Mississippi
8)Missouri
9)New Hampshire*
10)New Jersey
11)New York
12)Pennsylvania
13)Texas
14)Washington
15)Wisconsin

*Location of field not yet confirmed.

I added 3 fields in the North East. I just used the "Add Marker - Simple" option.
In the description section, I included the website info for each. They are not in your area of focus but, they are active fields to help test your map.

Sure thing BigReRe! Let us know if it worked - I took a look at the map again just now, and the ones that I put in are not showing. I assume it's because you haven't approved them yet...

I added all five markers to the map. Rainmaker, your makers turned out great. Carp13, it appears your markers didn't appear in their intended locations. I moved them to their proper spots based on google maps and their respective websites, but I would feel more comfortable if someone who had actually been to these locations would take a look at the map and then tell if the markers an in the right spots.

Thanks again for your help.
