Didn't the name Otterville originate with the neighborhood of squatters?

Because Otters eventually become trapped, skinned, and used as a doorbell.

When do I get to go on the map?

Oh and seeing as you've all been so helpful with the Otterville thing, what's with the "ohbfrank" smiley. I noticed a reference to that on the map too. Is that a reference to a past forum member? Perhaps a Danol type?

About getting on the map, that's totally up to View. I presume he's very busy nowadays and I'm not sure he has time to tend to the map anymore, but you would have to ask him to be sure.

Bfrank is a Moderator here in the forum. He's been around forever. He has a smilie because he has special needs, like me.

(BTW: It's a most high Privilege & Honor to have your own smilie here at DVD Talk.)

He's a great guy and has been most helpful to me during my time here.

(If you look at the Other Forum's main page and scroll down to the very bottom of the page, you'll see the names of the Moderators & Administrators on the lower right corner.)

THEEK!
