    Good Morning greater Uo Stratics Community.

    This morning during my usual coffee and catching up on all thing UO, I ran across a rather interesting blog which got my attention.

    Read Below and catch up with me at the bottom.

    "Sharing a dream for uo stratics
    Published by Petra Fyde in the blog Petra Fyde. Views: 29

    This my pipe dream. I know of no one who can grant me this wish, so it will remain a dream, sadly.

    Our zoomable map is broken, the coding in it is just too old. A WoW player created
    http://maps.marlam.in/
    Game of Thrones fans created
    http://gizmodo.com/explore-the-world-of-game-of-thrones-as-if-it-were-on-g-1565480639

    I would SO love to have google maps of Sosaria, Illshenar, Malas, Tokuno and Ter Mur.

    If only I'd been born 30 years later, I could have learned progamming and maybe done all the things I merely dream of doing now."

    Wow!

    I am all for this and I feel this would be a great asset for the community as well. I know I would be using it all the time.

    Taylor has set up a fundraising goal for the cost of putting such a great map system together for us.

    The Goal is only $300.

    Here is my throw down challenge to you all.

    I will match every dollar you all donate towards the project with 50 cents. Between now and the end of the month.

    That's right If you donate $10 I will donate an additional $5. If you all can come together and reach $200 in donation by 8/31/14. I will kick in $100.

    If you all can fund this $200 challenge by the end of the day today 12:00am PST, Not only will I kick in $100 to this project, but I will make an additional donation of $50 to the monthly operating cost fund that the Rares Community is working hard to fully fund this month. (They are doing a heck of a job by the way, they already reached 75% funded you can see their progress in the rares forum post)

    Here is the link to make your contribution http://stratics.com/community/goals/uo-maps-via-google-maps-api.2/

    Let's make this dream a reality. Pick up the gauntlet and jump in today. In fact right now today.

    I double dog dare you!

    When I clicked the link I didn't notice an option to pay. Is this stage just for pledging, with payment to be made later?

    I don't read blogs, I am too old to know what one is. Thanks for pointing this out Mr. Nabin.

    Great Job Everyone and Thank You!

    We are already at $136 in donation towards this project!

    Only $64 bucks to go!

    That get's you to $200 in one day earning a $100 Match which funds the project and gets another $50 in donations for the Monthly Operating cost campaign!

    I am impressed and very thankful!

    I'm speechless - and for me that's rare.
    I don't know how to thank you all. It was a dream, I didn't think there was any chance I'd ever actually see it come true.

    What would be the additional cost to also make this map downloadable as a huge JPG file as well?

    We're volunteers. Any that goes over spills into other operating costs.

    Thanks for everyone's contribution. I started advertising for developers two days ago, because I had a sneaking suspicion folks would come through. Will keep you posted.

    I'm having trouble understanding the point--I hate to be a party pooper, but how are the referenced links alike to Google Maps in any sort of way? All they are are zoomable images, no? I mean where is the search function? Say you wanted to find West Britain Bank. Where on the WoW Map can you search for things? I mean...where is the practical element of spending $300 for a zoomable image? I don't get it.
