Hi Markus,

probably one of the devs knows more, but I found two hardcodings with
resolution, in map.js ("mb_resolution") an in mod_createUser.php line 92.
The latter possibly overwrites the posted data?!

I would like to adjust the value to, because in a "1:2800" map, the
100m-scalebar is 28mm, which belongs to a scale of about 1:3571. I'm
wondering, why there are not more complaints about this inaccuracy ;-)
