I've received the report to the WS community.
It seems it's time to stop using google maps, now they are dramatically increasing their charges.
It seem that the WS site could work equally well with OpencycleMap or OpenStreetMap.
crazyguyonabike has recently made that change, not without pain.
See the forums page on crazyguyonabike.com for information about just how CGOAB has done it.
When somebody is not available for hosting, please leave their city and country details. That's useful information to give clues about language spoken etc.
Perhaps hosts should be given the full address details of people requesting accommodation, in case they have need to contact them.
Fair enough to allow people to be 'unavailable for hosting' but why allow them to be so anonymous?
