Maxmind GeoIP2 policy changes

Permalink
If you're using the free "Geolocation with MaxMind GeoIP2" package (https://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/maxmind-geoip2-geolocator), then the recent policy change by Maxmind will affect you.

Here's the full announcement:
https://blog.maxmind.com/2019/12/18/significant-changes-to-accessing...

In short, you'll need to create a free account on Maxmind's website and generate an API key in order to keep using this service. These settings need to be entered into the "geolocation" dashboard interface (/dashboard/system/environment/geolocation/).

Hope this helps someone and saves a bit of time.
