2017-02-03 Map Collaboration

I don’t think anybody ever used the ability to host a Gridmapper map, live. Well, the least used feature just got better! I know, I know. But hey, it’s free, and I liked working on it, so there’s that. The new feature: collaborate on a map. That is, where as before would one of you would be the mapper and the others could get a read-only view of what the mapper was doing, now you can all draw at the same time. That’s what I hope, anyway.

A word of caution: In the spirit of all things Internet, there is currently no protection at all. Anybody can join a map. I’ll probably add optional passwords, soon. Please leave a comment if you were collaborating with friends and vandals joined your map!

Please note that Gridmapper has no chat functionality. You must meet people online, elsewhere. One way to do this is to join the DIY DND chatroom on Discord. It’s like G+, but one ongoing conversation.

And when you do collaborate on a map, please let me know. My current estimate of Gridmapper users is one or two active users.
