USER EXPERIENCE @pinmapple ~ LOOKING at my old flags

in Haveyoubeenhere3 months ago (edited)


This is my second part and entry to the 1000 contest pinmapple and haveyoubeenhere community, user experience assignment. I like telling you the why, how and when.

This is my part 1 of the contest which I posted earlier this week.

I am a pinner of trips, I was that when I was on the former platform Steemit and I still am. I love @pinmapple and my city travelled library on the map.


You see the front picture you used, date, vote count and made amount on the post.

We also used it often as a contest or challenge in the redfishrally for @theterminal and that was always a succes in meeting the new ralliers. And with the task they got to see how this platform within our blockchain works. I also did some projects and the first one is a long time ago on Steemit.
But that I will adress later and tell all about this fun thing from the past.

Pinmapple (formerly known as Steemitworldmap) is a collection of the best travel content on the Hive blockchain shown on a map, and a ready to use extra to see who is where or who is been where when making a blog or want to read a travel experience from fellow hivers.

As a Hiver and as an blog-author, when you travel you can enter your travel location on the site and than you get an auto-generated code containing the location of the place where you. That code is the link between a written blog and a pinned mark on the map by @pinmapple. If done correctly, adding this code to your post will enable the Pinmapple searcher to find the location of your post and pin it on the map within minutes. And be there for always to go back to and re-live your holiday or evening-out.

The procedure works on any front-end for Hive, available to everybody
for free. Once your location is pinned to the Pinmapple map, it will also be curated by the Pinmapple team. Thats a benefit to,your account and hive made. Every day the Pinmapple team curates the best travel posts and issues a Travel Digest to showcase the authors' works. I had that happen and that’s a moment we all like because it’s recognition.

I chose my city as an example ; ROTTERDAM, Holland


And I choose Football Club Feijenoord in Rotterdam to pin.


Go to:;
Click in the Search box and type the location of your travel; Hit ENTER;
Click on the location result on the Pinmapple map;
A box at the bottom of the page will appear;
Enter a name for your location;
Click on the code underneath the name for your location

Message above the code will state: Copied Successfully; and
Paste the code into your post. Anywhere in your post will be sufficient. You may need to place a space before and after the code.
a) The map is hidden and WILL NOT appear in PREVIEW.
b) The location will be added to the Pinmapple Map ONLY after you publish the post.
c) @pinmapple will visit your post and leave a comment once your location has been added to its map. The Comment will contain:
​1) A notice that your post has been successfully added to the Map; and
​2) A link to your Pinmapple PROFILE so that you can check if your location is correct.
d) Only 1 location per post will be pinned to the map.
e) Pinmapple code must be included in post prior to publishing,
f) Pinmapple and Haveyoubeenhere." by @pinmapple. Posted on Hive. Pinmapple and Haveyoubeenhere

The map will cluster all the pins together to have a neat look on countries but with zooming in the pins will all be visible ( colors on the map are red, yellow and blue ) and zoom can be into streets etc because it’s Google maps orientated.

While preparing my noorder light blog for the pineapple contest I was reminded of the fact that a few year ago I did a blog with handing out flags. I pinned them on a map in my office. Still have the pins and kept the map obviously. It’s fun to see if I still interact with the people from back than.


This is what I wrote than : It all started three weeks ago, the weather is getting nicer and the sun is out alot mor than the last few months and we started wondering where would we want to go if we could go on a holiday - trip right now, no strings attached, no work to be considered and the dogs would take care off them selves, or go to the sitters.

Read the blogs about it right here:

I bought an old school woldmap and made it into my own office #steemitworldmap. I asked you, my steemit than and hive friends now to tell me if you wanted a flag all you had to do I tell me where you live.

I did these kind of blog before and gave out steemitflags. And I am giving them out again ! For FREE.

I looked back to My blog and was not planning to repeat this one but I met so many new peeps , here I was doing a second round. I Will keep pinning you on the map if you tell me Where you live. I think its Nice to See with which part off the world I am in contact with.

You were with flag along time ago , we have to see who is still here

Where does the time go? I have not used @pinmapple but certainly think it is a wonderful project! Thank you for the shout out... can't lie, got a little emotional when seeing @wolfhart. Someone that we will never forget... that's for sure...

Hey, @brittandjosie.

Am I still here? Well, yes, just not nearly as active as I once was.

Thank you for the informative post. I feel like I've been away so long that I accidentally hit the down arrow, but I was able to change it!

I saw hahahah no worries I knew it was a slip of the thumb , great that you are back hope all is well

All is better. Screw 2020, lol. Had some big setbacks, but major accomplishments. Hope things are grand with you too!

That was fun to read. Made me think back of the good old days on Steem, and the fun we had on chain. Good times 😁
Thanks! Thinking of all those lovely people brought a big smile to my face

I almost missed this one too! You're so many steps ahead of me. I kept looking for my handle there on your extensive lists of shout-outs but I think it stopped at 1,000. I'm probably 1,001 on your list--damn the bad luck!

Heck of a techy savvy promo(y) @brittandjosie and that's a lot of(y) wordsy rhyming in this sentence(y).

What an awesome post! Actually, I'm in Estonia since about 17 months ago. Still Northern Europe, just a different country. :)

Thanks for the North Pole flag! Haha!

Its yours forever friend we missed you

I live in China now apparently :P

Almost chinese new year

En een meet up ja maar die f.... lockdown

Nice, ik ben een beetje verloren gegaan de laatste maanden. Als de lockdown nog wat langer aan blijft zal ik weer eens wat posten. Hier gaat het verder prima. Ik ben ondertussen papa geworden, dus heb er een nieuwe hobby bij.
Hoe gaat het met jou?

Heel gaaf, ben je vader geworden van een meisje of een jongen ? En inderdaad een hobby en een top iets om over te bloggen

I just saw you mention lol. Thanks!
