Today, 13th December, marks four years since I was granted an OGF identity and started editing. I think the User Diary is an excellent place to say a few words to mark this date.
Firstly would like to thank isleno and the other admins for making this site possible and, in general, keeping it as one of the more civil corners of the internet.
In this time I have developed a great deal as a mapper. I’ve done a lot of studying and examination of the real world and also a lot of revision of earlier areas. Particularly, this year I decided to remake the capital of Karolia and am now a lot happier with how it looks (and of course there is a lot more still to do). I don’t think I could have had this city looking satisfactory without the years of practice in other areas and the headspace to keep working out what my country is about in ever greater detail.
Projects by other mappers I have enjoyed watching have included Myrcia’s Dunwic, which has also been subject to revision and improvement in the last year; Tparigo’s Brocelliande which has extraordinary detail, and Ernestpcosby’s similar improvements to Quentinsburgh.
I hope the new forum becomes a lively and useful place for sharing of technique and debate between all users, new and old.

Shoot. I missed my anniversary date, but I don’t think there much to celebrate since I did it accomplished much. Haha.

Congrats, Sarepava! Your advice and tips have helped me a lot in my own mapping, and as a whole I think you’ve been a great part of the community that indirectly helped OGF get where it is today. Happy fourth anniversary!
And thanks for the shout-out :D

Shoot. I missed my anniversary date, but I don’t think there much to celebrate since I did not accomplished much. Haha.
I also like the places you had mentioned, such as Ernest’s Questinburgh. I also like Isleno’s (and others’) Khaiwoon and Eklas’ progress on the railways.

Happy Anniversary. It’s hard to believe this thing of ours is over four years old now.
