for transparency purposes, to allow any OpenGeofiction user to follow or be part of discussions and decisions regarding the community collaborative projects in West Uletha, these discussions will need to be held on our new Wiki Forums, as soon as these open to the community. Decisions will be made (if necessary) by majority vote over the forums – any OpenGeofiction user can (vote and) discuss (not just users who actively participate in the project – most community collaborative projects in West Uletha represent origins for cultures worldwide).
Projects which would currently come into question:
Castellan (Castilian Spanish homeland, inspired by Mediterranean Europe and Northern Africa)
Malesoria (Albanian-speaking nation, inspired by Southeast European states)
Mazan (Arabic-speaking homeland, inspired by the Middle East and parts of Northern Africa)
Plevia (Italian-speaking homeland, inspired mostly by Italy)
Surian Confederation (discussions regarding the whole state, as well as the capital region.
Russian-speaking homeland, inspirations from the Soviet Union)
Projects which might come into question in the future:
Chara Republic (Russian-speaking republic within the Surian Confederation, inspirations mostly from ideal socialist cities and southern Ukraine)
Franqueterre/Franquia (French-speaking homeland, inspired mostly by Central Western Europe)
Gobrassanya (English-speaking nation, strong Hawaiian-like indigenous presence)
I encourage coordinators / contributors to community collaborative projects / interested users to post current development plans / development proposals for the mentioned collaborative projects to the forums, as soon as the forums are accessible to the entire OpenGeofiction community.
In this section, issues such as the spread of languages and language groups throughout Uletha and the world can be discussed as well.
Looking forward to productive discussions, smooth collaborations and outstanding mapping!
(current manager of West Uletha)

Perhaps there could be forums for geographical regions in West Uletha as well? It could be helpful to have forums for Ghetoria, the Liberian Island, Northern Uletha, etc to collaborate and for other users to share input on those regions.
I don’t know if there would be enough demand for all the regions in OGF:West Uletha to have forums, so maybe some could be combined - like the South Great Sea Coast region and Egalia, or Turquan Uletha and the Iviran Coast and Aryana.
Or not - I don’t think it’s absolutely needed, but it could be nice to have. I think it’s great that the forums are getting a redesign and some more attention, and thanks to all the admins who are doing it!

I’ve also had this idea, but I’m not sure how many users would actually use these subcontinent forums, many West Ulethan mappers tend to keep to themselves. Let’s see how the collab project discussions go first.

Alright, sounds good.
