South Africa inspired territory - request for proposals

Posted by wangi on 24 March 2019 in English (English)

Hi, I would like to grant a large territory in North Archanta to two, or three, users for them to collaborate on a South Africa inspired country.

The territory would be within the boundaries of AR066 and AR018, although not necessarily the complete combined area.

I want the users to find each other, build up a proposal and submit that to admin (subject: "AR066/AR018 proposal"). Each proposal will then be explored.

Proposals will need to comprehend the complex geography and linguistic challenges of such a territory.

Deadline for submissions: Friday 19 April.

Thanks/L

Location: -12.659, 140.295

Is it possible to submit ideas without commuting to editing a large territory? While I am busy enough with my own country, I am interested in designing a history and topography for the OGF South Africa.

Sorry, I meant committing, not commuting.

Idea is you would team up with one or two others and submit a joint proposal. Some can be more the thinkers, others the doers.

The other African-like nation is the de facto collab known as Elhadia, which is just nearby. I quite like the fact you chosen a suitable spot for the African nation.

@wangi, how close do you want the territory to be to South Africa, and which aspects of it? For example, would it be acceptable for it not to be just another Ingerish-speaking country?

Also what's the deadline for submissions?

I'd like to see what others think about how close, or not, the South Africa theme is in their submissions. Certainly English in the descendancy is a welcome idea, and within a rich mix of other languages.

I can set a deadline if it is helpful? Just unsure of the interest at this stage.

A deadline will help. Maybe by mid-April will be helpful.

I find the idea of a similar south africa country really great. And I'm sure you'll find good people to collaborate with. But I was just wondering if that was the perfect place to do it. I know that OGF has to be as different and original as possible from the real world. But if there are the FSA in the south of Archanta would it sound curious to have a "south africa" on the same mainland ? Personnaly I thought AN146 would have been a great place for a vast South Africa. But after all maybe you did'nt mean to copy exactly the same diversity of nations of South Africa. Anyway, I wish you the best for your project and will follow your mapping there. Cheers
