Note that Commonia is supposed to be a war-torn country full of chaos. Read the Wiki articles before doing anything. Also, think about downloading JOSM, it's a lot better than iD or Portlach (in-browser editors), for example when creating a line you can see how long it is. Other than that - have fun mapping ;) !

@trabantemnaksiezyc I think primarily Commonia is a sandbox for people to practice in and that we have created the 'war-torn country full of chaos' story to explain the totally incongruous nature of it.
It's unfair to expect new mappers to be creating war-town cities there. I made seaside resorts when I first started in Commonia. We should be encouraging people to be as creative as they like in Commonia so they get as much experience as possible before they make their own territory.

I agree Myrcia

As a comment on your country, it is good that you have started with a river but it is bad that there is already a motorway

Also, be careful about not using real world names. It looks like you've been doing a good job of that overall, but I noticed a Payless in there somewhere.
