I just wanted to see if there was an interest in a website that home haunters can add their home haunt display location and information. Then others can check out on the web to see where the nearest home haunter is to them. What do you think? Stupid? If you like the idea, what would you call it?

I don't think any of those actually tell you where you haunt is? Does it? I see where it rates it, but maybe I am barking up the wrong tree.

Sounds like a good idea to me. I know Sinister on these forums was asking about such a thing a while ago. He's a non-haunter that just wanted to go see some displays in his neck of the woods.

Maybe I need to make a Home haunting finder that shows address, directions, ratings, and map. On the map it will show a tombstone. The bigger the townstone, the more votes the person got. I shall call it www.tombmarker.com. It could happen.(judy tenuta)

Can't we just do the map thing on flappr. com? That would seem to be fairly easy.

I just talked to the guy you designed Christmasfinder and he says he would give me the source code for the program. This is a start anyway. I just need to come up with features for the website that are most important.

I know I'm a bit late to reply with this but I'm listed on Hauntedhouse.com. You can list your home haunt, give all the details, hours of operation, etc. I got alot of people who came in 2005 by listing there.

I have been messing around with this software someone showed me. It is a flash based map like on Google. But you can add your own links to it. I don't have it for my Halloween site, but I did post it to my Christmas site to see how it is. You can zoom in on the map and click on the icon to goto the person's site. I was thinking about having this my my halloween site, but I would need zip codes or town and state to do it. But this is what it looks like on my Christmas site. Of course I wouldn't use lights for the icons for the Halloween site, more like skulls.

I think this is a great idea. I think it would be great to visually see where everyone is located and would love the free advertising for my meger haunt.

I could show different icons for different things. Like if you have just a local home huant I would just show skull. If have a pro haunt then I would use another icon for that etc.

Ok, I have a real simple version up right now but I have home haunter map going. If you would like to take a look goto www.deathtouchhorrors.com and click on Haunters map on the left hand side. On the map I only have 1 haunt, which is me right now. But if you would like to be added send me the name of your huant, if you are a pro, home, or retail, along with your zip or town and state. So when your icon goes up someone can click on the icon and it will take them to your home page. On the map you can zoom in and zoom out to take a look at icons.
