Extreme Geography Noob here, wanting to make isolationist Island Nation

Posted by Carol of the waa on 12 November 2017 in English (English)

Well, I just joined for the first time and I want to ask if there is a possibility to make a project outside of the "blue" countries, because as I have seen it looks like all territories noted in the wiki are already taken. Correct the poor noob if you can.

Welcome to OGF. You are restricted to editing in blue territories for the first 7 days of your membership. After that, you can join one of the collaborative territories if you wish. As I understand it, they are not closed to new entrants. Happy mapping!

So no new land, you say? as in lands off the coast of some continent?

All beginners edit the same territory? (sorry, want to learn, gotta ask questions.)

I'd have a read through the FAQ of the site first, if I were you - http://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/OGF:Frequently_asked_questions, which also answers your questions about 'blue' territories (see http://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/OGF:Frequently_asked_questions#Which_territories_can_I_edit.3F).

Welcome to OGF! Do you mean creating islands off the shore of 'blue' countries?

Yes, all the beginners edit the same territories. I've been editing in one of the blue territories, Gobrassanya, since I started. Once you've been around for at least a week and you've mapped enough, you can request a territory. There are some island territories available when you're ready for one. A lot of the territories aren't taken yet, and in a few days some more will be withdrawn. See the territory overview map for more information.
