We have have decided to make our abandoned places in Ontario map private and only viewable by registered and logged in users. The reason for this is to help keep locations out of the hands of those who have malicious intent, its obviously not fool proof but its a start.
To gain access to our map there are two simple steps.
1) create an account if you have not done so already by clicking the log in button at the top of the page.
2) submit at least one location to be added to our database that is not already listed. This will help confirm that you are an active explorer.
You will have time to submit a location, it does not have to be done immediately. But if you do not participate in a fashionable time frame, your account will be closed and you will loose access to the abandoned database.
I was very reluctant to add restrictions like this to database but I think its in the best interest of everyone.
