[offtopic] Missing functionality: View group members on a map
Sometime ago I noticed a new functionality on this website: you can view group members on a Google map. However, this functionality since disappeared. When I managed to contact support, I was told that it was deliberately removed. I forgot how I managed to contact support back then, and I wasn't able to do it since. So I would like to know if somebody knows about this functionality:
1. Why was it removed and is it going back? It's one thing if it was fell victim to code refactoring and will return (I think I can wait) and the other if it was somehow found unappropriate (why?)
2. If it's not going back, then how can I replicate it. I imagine I can create a Google Form that every member of my group can fill, which will be connected to a Google spreadsheet which will be connected to the map. It should take some setting up, but once set up, should work fine and reliably with free tools.
I'm sorry for posting this to the group where it's off-topic. I have no idea where to better ask this question, so I just ask it in the group for the most active Couchsurfing country.
