Hello. Due to the interest a lot of us had in the previous Cooperative World Building Project, and the fact that it has stalled indefinitely, we have decided to start a new one; aptly called Cooperative World Building Project 2 (CWBP 2). This project is currently just getting off the ground, nothing has been decided yet. So if you would like jump in the on the ground floor please do so. If'd you'd like to wait around for more definite information to be released feel free to do that also.
Current threads dealing with CWBP 2: Given that the front page of this subforum (other than the stickies) is now filled with CWBP 2 threads I suggest you start with the top threads. Our current hot topics are the Licensing issue, Era and technology, the astrophysics, and the magic thread.
Things we need to accomplish before we open up the world for mapping:
1 & 2: Setting and World map
a)Special interests and points regarding the setting or map
b)Rough guidelines regarding important thematic maps, (tectonic plate, Major rivers etc.)
3: Refinement of the above into the conditions and levels we decide appropriate for informed map making.
4: Plots for mapping and our approach to project organization.
5: Setting up the preliminary guidelines for setting creation.
6: Mapping and setting construction!
A link to our discussion about the licensing of the project.
Regarding the licencing of this project. We need to come to a conclusion and could use some legal guidance if anyone knows about these things.
We request that you try to endeavour to keep things submitted to the CWBP 2 separate from your other private projects, as they could also be subject to this license if they share material included in the CWPB 2 project.
Think carefully if you submit something to the project, as it will then be hard to take back, at the very least in the ethical sense.
IF you'd like to join this project, it's really easy, just jump in on the conversations with the "CWBP 2" tags and start throwing your ideas around. As the project moves forward things will necessarily follow some sort of formula in terms of participation, but we aren't there yet.
