Good question. Since the Field Location is ultimately a map, the correct location of the business is the most important part.

If two facilities merge, you need to mark the location that is no longer there as closed and I'll remove it.

Then make any necessary modifications to the location that is still around - name change, amenities...

FB Paintball in Santa Clara, California is reporting that they are permanently closed.

I went through all the listings in Northern California that I know of and submitted closed or changed info for them. Included links to yelp or google pages that had 'closed' notifications as reference.

There are a couple more that I am trying to confirm before submitting listings as well. I also added the Palmers Pursuit shop listing in Sacramento (North Highlands) as it wasn't on the list.

I "revised" two (2) stores closing a couple months ago, but never saw anything happen with them. Hopefully this time they can get removed.

Wondering if that is by design or you charge owners to get that functionality?

Thanks to everyone that has helped! This has to have been the best cleanup since the launch of Pursuit.

That's something I've asked to be changed. I am hoping the programmers can make it so all fields and stores have a direct link from the listing to their site.

So glad this is happening. I was just trying to use the field locator in VA and went to a closed field. Thanks for getting this rolling again John. I'll hit up a few locals in the NW Florida area now that I'm here and hit some revisions.

On a related note, some of locations on the map for my local fields were all wonky on the map. One in the middle of santa monica and another on the wrong side of the freeway. My guess is that those addresses were perhaps mailing (business) addreses and not field locations cuz no way there were ever paintball fields there.
Ability to link to their own sites would be helful

If a business isn't plotted in the correct spot on the map, I can fix it. If they again hit "revise" (or email me) the longitude and latitude then I can make it show up on the map in the correct spot.

This site might help. http://www.findlatitudeandlongitude.com. I need the version that looks like this out to as many decimals as is practical.
Latitude: 42.6296
Longitude: -100.546

Just center the map over your location and then adjust it to the size you want.

They asked about miles, but I didn't see the answer to that part of the question. I know when I use the map, no map legend pops up that I can see for miles or kilometers or am i missing something?

Center yourself and scale the map to the approximate distance you are willing to travel.

Click "get directions" on any pin and it will tell you the exact driving distance.

That being said, are you saying there should be a distance scale (legend) in Miles or Kilometers when you are looking at the map? If so, I don't see it.

I understand that "directions" will get exact mileage, but it would be nice to have a exploded view of the map with a distance legend so you can approximate what is around you without having to use the "directions" function for every location.

I am going to make the same suggestion that people have been making for years; remove the "Quality of Fields" rating from store listings. Seeing as how stores do not have fields, many reviewers rate this category as 1 star. This brings down the overall rating of the store.

Since the map is scalable, that would require a scalable legend too. I don't see that happening. Once you get used to driving around your area, it gets easier to estimate distances based on landmarks like towns and state lines. Sorry.

I'm confused how people could have been making that request at all since I never enabled reviews for stores. Only fields have the link to create a review.

Are you sure you're not thinking of a store that someone mistakenly submitted as a field? If you know which one you are thinking about, let me know and I can edit it so it's just a store.

Since posting this, for the first time I am finally caught up.

Thanks to everyone who helped!

It's not too late though, check https://pbnation.com/play and help us stay updated! Especially let me know if there are any local business no longer around that need to be removed or new businesses not yet listed!

We just fixed the map on the mobile site. Thanks for letting me know that wasn't displaying properly. Let me know if it doesn't look correct to anyone.

If you haven't yet, please check your local fields and stores for business that are not listed or have closed!

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
