Brilliant, theres now a user outside the UK on the map :D still need more users on there though. If this was an m$ map sadly we wouldnt be able to the UK at all because fo all the little flags.

Click non US.
and start writing the name of your closest city. And select from the dropdown list. Worked for me.
I am the one you thought I was! Just not the way, you expected...

Yea, I have to say it can be a bit difficult getting it to locate you, but as long as you click non US then generally entering the first three letters of your closest town or city does the job, strangely when I typed in Ipswich it wouldnt find it, but if I enter IPS it does :?
