Political map update in progress.
Any colonies without an informative wiki presence have been removed from the map. This doesn't mean they are gone. Below is a "report card" with information on player's colonies and why they are or are not on the map.
If you have been affected, please find the information about the corresponding colonies and create a wiki page for it. If you have no written information yet, you probably have an idea in your mind (mental picture) of what that colony is like. Without getting to hung up on it, try to put that idea into words and create a wiki presence for your colony. You can use it as a starting point to build onto at a later time.
At that point let it be known that you have completed something and it will be added back to the map.
The final map will be posted at the end of the thread and of course on the wiki.
Acheillo (city state)
Taurès - OK (needs redirect from taures)
Cykeria - OK
Búle - OK / make changes for size
Haniyyahs - convert / change from ithrieni page
New Amberia - OK
Ayatawantin - good desc on forum, need wiki presence
Carolina - good desc on forum, need wiki presence
Wanamian Islands - good desc on forum, need wiki presence
Austrasa - good desc on forum, need wiki presence
Ujjaiparam - good desc on forum, need wiki presence
Black Isles - good desc on forum, need wiki presence
Great Edwin’s Land / defacto hallis?? / mark as disputed
Mal Orielle - no wiki presence / unapproved
Singidunum - no wiki presence / unapproved
Sentinel - no wiki presence / unapproved
Shing Pol - no wiki presence / unapproved
Ionith Straits Colonies - OK / needs some wiki improvement
Garpoon - no wiki presence / unapproved
The Westhold - OK
Ephesus - OK
Tang Maoi - OK (not sure if you still wanted this though)
overall, lots of shells, some nice flags and maps..
Too much concern with individual territories seems to be bogging you down. Focus on first creating a wiki presence for an entire colony before delving deeper (ind. terr. level).
Alliance Islands - wiki shell / nice flag / no info
Great Edwins Land - wiki shell / nice flag / no info
Dominions of the Crownlands - wiki shell / nice flag & locator map / no info... you have some on the forum .. move it over
Dominion of the Southlands - wiki shell for collective colony, some nice flags, no information
Arkandia - wiki shell / locator map / very little info
New Perch - wiki shell / no info
South ocean territories - OK
Bernardian Islands - wiki presence but needs work - BUT... an unapproved colony
Kuvimbic colonies - no wiki presence for any
Fisks - OK
Lotus Island - OK

Beginning on August 1st, I am going to re-position myself within Gotha from administrator to "Founder."
This will mean relinquishing my admin position, in terms of decision making, and transitioning to being the keeper (and 'improver') of statistics. I will, of course, also be a regular player and have my own nation. While I will not be voting on administrative issues, I will be available to advise and mediate when needed. This will hopefully alleviate some of my frustration with feeling overwhelmed, and give me a chance to channel some creativity into Anat Tahan and Gotha in general.
In the mean time, I am putting the finishing touches on an updated ledger and map of development based on revamping some of our original stats for some of the advanced colonial areas. They should be similar population-wise, but have better GDPs than are created via the (old) 'retroactive' colonial update method I was using before. That method was fine for short periods (i.e., for playing out the game), but some of our colonies are just too old for it to work, resulting in skewed statistics (very poor people) without additional tweaks. Basically, we'll be starting with a (more balanced) base, with no tweaks or retroactive development. I gave special attention to some key areas on the 'colonialized' continents, so this will not affect most homeland territories. Anaria remained virtually untouched in this process.
This needs to be finalized before I step aside, so I will put the proposed updates forth to administration, and we will discuss it and make changes. After that, and until further notice, ledger updates (in terms of advancements) will be every 10 Gotha years (like a census), that's every 5 earth years. Essentially it will be static unless something awesome happens in terms of database programming/automation on my part, but we wont plan on that. Instead I'd like to focus on making those statistics easily accessible and usable.
A more detailed description of my duties, as well as the duties of the Administrators will be posted by August 1. At this time the name of a new Admin will also be announced.
