First, I can't find a single click link to the Wizard, so yeah I booked marked it.  I am looking up AGoT LCG.

I put in my state (are two letter abreviations OK?) and lets say I don't put in a zipcode.  First how does it treat the Range field when listing a state?  Does 6 miles mean the entire state of CA and six miles into the states of OR, AZ, & NV?  What if I choose, "All"?  Wouldn't that be the entire world?  So I did that and 216 names came up.  But there's no way to tell at a glance where they are located and none were shown on the map.

Now I put in my zipcode and the only person that comes up is me.  Now this is with Range set to "All" which in theory should be the entire world.  Then as a test I put in 600 miles--which would take the radius, from my location, out to NV, AZ, UT, and parts of NM & CO.  Still only I come up.

I don't get this.

There are some bugs in the "range" and Zip code element that we're working on. 

However, if you search for all results in OK, you should get more than a single result. For example, when I search for AGOT LCG, Oklahoma, (profile all types) I get 25 results.

When I search for players by state, it brings up many results in the list, but if you switch to map view, you only see the results for people on that page of the list (who have put in their zip codes, I'm guessing, since only 3 or 4 pop up).  Is there a way to get map view to show ALL results instead of just what is on that page of the list?

Also, the bottom of the list view where it lists the number of pages and next page /last page buttons can get a bit screwy.

Thanks Keggy, another piece of the mystery.  I believe this isn't even at the "Beta" stage yet.

I really don't get it.  I put in California for AGoT LCG.  A list of 219 comes up, inconventiently without any zip code or area shown.  I click on Map, and I only see 4 people with icons.  Where's the other 215?  And for that matter, where's me?

Well, they made it simpler, but I'm still having problems.  They took away the Zip Code field and the Range field. So the drop down box is set to United States.  I then put in CA for California (there's no indication if the two letter postal abbrevations will work.)  Two hours later it still says, "Loading."

Wow.  I just went back and now the State field is a drop box.  I chose California and pretty quickly got a list of 200+ people.  But now the Map tab is gone so there's no way to see who's near by.

Yeah, I'm pretty sad the map got taken down.  And with no location given for the members, it makes it impossible to find other local people to play with.

Well, it's a good thing it's in "Beta" because it would be a big zero if it weren't.

So now the State field is back to a blank instead of a pull-down.  So do you type in CA or California, or does it not matter?  Why the change?

So I went back  and was going to type in the state, but the pull-down was back!

Seems to me this project's been abandoned and is stuck in a permanent beta state.  Has anyone found it useful?  I note there's pretty much zero activity in this forum.

I really wish a bit more effort could go into this.  I feel like it has potential.
