I just noticed on one member's sent/received map that there are only dots for where the senders and receivers live and no indication of where the member herself lives.  Mine isn't like that.  Is it new?  I like it.  I'd show mine if that were the standard way it would show up.

Umm, Ruth?  In that case you might want to turn off "Show My Location" in your profile.  That will probably remove those lines also.

Thanks, Bernhard.  I didn't even realize that there was an option for that.  Learn something new everyday if you're lucky and know someone who knows more than you do and is willing to tell you!  Glad I know you!

This is from the Newswire they sent out tonight:

Maps upgrade.  Now if you have your city/state hidden on your profile, your city/state will be hidden on your Maps too.  And anyone who has set his or her location or profile to "private" will also have an "anonymous dot" on all maps.

Thanks, Cheryl.  I haven't read the newest Newswire.  Guess I'd better go do that.  Glad I know you, too!

I hadn't read it either.  I just took a logical guess since I already knew about hiding your city and state.
