For those people interested in App Awards,
I'd like the addition of a map.

Just a simple two color map showing what states or provinces
you've reported prices in, for the Pioneer Award.

SM- Bill is my hero. A man that can make people laugh without the use of foul language.

To that I want to be a glass marble stopper! The original pop bottle. Do you know what bottle that was?

SC- I must admit I don't know were the phrase originates.

I have heard "I'm just an old chunk of coal, but I'm gonna be a diamond someday"

Based on my last post it might appear that I think the OP is a good idea. Well, that is incorrect. While it would be nice, I don't see the need.

And yeah I wanna be the piece of glass! Do you even know where this comes from?

RC-

<<"SM-The points graphics are not explained within the mobile app are they?">>

First, the POINTS graphics are part of the site because those that don't use the APP still get points and earn cars.

<<"No, and neither is your piece of glass.... ">>>
OF course it isn't - because he said "I still wanna be the piece of glass~ " - in the discussion of ADDING icons. It isn't in the list of icons so of course it won't be on the list.

I suggest that maybe the reason they would not give you a map with where you have been is that it is part of the challenge of the award - you should be keeping track yourself.

And, besides, they are, hopefully busy with more important things like tying price entries to available fuels and the MSL, and the cash/credit issue.

But, maybe Rich is right and they will see click revenue by adding the maps - but if they do, I suggest they add it to the APPS so they don't have to worry about maintaining it on the website as well.

GB-I thought of that in my original post then removed it realizing the scale would be to large, so yes a list of cities would do nicely.

Since the app awards have nothing to do with the web site, the best place for this would be on the app.

I assume that the reason would be so that you could see what states/provinces/territories you still need to post for (though personally I don't see it as being useful), but if you're going to do a map of where states/provinces/territories you posted for, wouldn't the logical thing to concurrently do be to also show the cities you've posted for (inasmuch as you get "credit" for the number of different cities you've posted for).

How do you have one without the other?

That said, wouldn't a clickable link to a list of "posted to" and "not posted yet" states/provinces/territories suffice?
