Important Notes
* Do not use Shift-Drag to copy your World Map Buddy as this causes issues.
* Push pins may be resized and textured, but not differently colored.
See "How to change default pin size"
* Other uses for the City Name field could be job title, type of work the person is involved in, or the date you met him/her.
* Push pins may only be deleted by the owner or friends of the owner that have been granted edit permissions.
See "To delete push pins" above.
* In the pin Menu it is best to click "Finished" when you are done editing a pin.
This help eliminate cross talk when the owner is editing several pins.
Otherwise you could end up with several menu dialogs.
How to change default pin size
The default push pin can be resized so the pin comes out the size you want.
But keep in mind that the process has to be done quickly:
1. Edit your World Map Buddy and click the Content tab
2. Drag the WorldMapPin1 object from the Contents to your inventory
3. Drop the WorldMapPin1 object to the ground
4. IMMEDIATELY reset the scripts to prevent the pin from disappearing
5. Modify the pin as you wish; you only have five minutes to do this due to the script
6. Take your modified WorldMapPin1 object into your inventory
7. Edit your World Map Buddy and go to the Content tab; delete the original WorldMapPin1
8. Drag your modified pin from your inventory and into your World Map Buddy Contents
