Wednesday Poll: Droid Life Community, Where You at?

Skitch Update Map

It has been almost 2 years to the day that we last put together one of these maps of the Droid Life community. In fact, if you had participated in the last one, you probably deserve a lifetime DL badge or something.They have little purpose other than they simply look amazing with the thousands and thousands of pins placed on them across the U.S. and parts of the globe. So for fun, we thought we would do another one to see how this community has grown and if nothing else, for something to do while we wait for Android manufacturers to produce a phone worth talking about in 2012.

Here is what to do:

  • Click on the “Add” button.
  • From there, scroll on the map to find your location and click the “Click a map location” link.
  • Then click on your city or town. Click “submit” when finished.
  • Please do not put in your actual street address.

  • Christopher Riner

    Wow, I lived in Costa Rica for two years, and whoever it is that is watching from there–trust me, they are watching from the sticks. That’s like straight jungle.

  • Milford NH FTW!

    Well, the map kept crashing my Nexus browser. The map won’t load at all on my laptop Chrome browser.  I broadcast live from Little Rock, AR!

  • Shilamar

    There are a lot in the MidWest. (I’m in Indianapolis, IN) I guess with one of their 4G towers here at the airport and another in West Lafayette, IN I suppose there would be quite a bit here. ^_^

    DL… Party @ Kellex house BYOB!! No TROLLS excepted. And by the looks of the map, I hope you have a big house!….. Lol

    • daisyville

      Are trolls the exception? What are you saying? Who decides who’s a troll? And is this just for the party or the site and is it for a specific period of time? Deets, man.

  • Wmsco51

      • daisyville

        Lemme handle this one, Scott.

        Oh hell no! You musta lost your damn mind! Don’t be mad cuz you got ALL the smog in California! There’s a REASON we don’t have to spray tan in SD!

  • 1bad69z28

    Hey Kellex, How about a DL Android Get together across the US??? I think alot of the members would love to get together, meet each other and network. Of course the location will have to be strategically placed all over but that would be something 🙂 

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    Um WTF!?!  A whole bunch of pins got removed!

  • Butters619

    I just get group in with LA, but I live in SD…..lame

  • Runway500

    Greenville NC baby!!!!!!!

  • EvanTheGamer

    HEY, I got a great idea:

    Implement an Awards or Badge or Achievements type of system. Would be awesome. I mean…I’ll frequent this site for along as I’m an Android addict…which is pretty much forever regardless of such a system, but well..it would just bring something new to droid-life. Also it’d be fun to earn different sets of badges or achievements.

    Get 10 likes in a day? Badge or Achievement!

    Comment on 5 different posts? Badge or Achievement!

    Etc, etc. Just something new really. Also just a thought.

    • 1bad69z28

       I like your idea Evan, hopefully Kellex can do something like this. I’ve been a big fan of this site since 2009. 🙂

      • EvanTheGamer

        Hell yeah…would just be something refreshing, you know…matter of speaking…I wonder what ever happened to that Chat feature they implements months ago. Guess it didn’t do too well so they disbanded it.

    • Achievement unlocked :P!

  • Liderc

    I’m in NC, been here at DL for about a year now, but I have to say all the pink threw me off at first.  But as I wanted to get farther and farther away from droid forums, I realized I liked this kind of site more.  Lets me just read the droid news if I want that day or if I feel like taking and giving some punches I can jump into the comments.
