    lol then i have the perfect thing to do for this if it gets chosen, as it was something i was gonna do for a different site, but i couldn't fit it on an 800x800 image.

    I have an Alternate History full of wars that I could map out, so count me in if this one gets picked.

    Well - post an update for chosen challenges, maybe, and/or lock the threads?

    a seige and a war are two different things... And there's a lot of new members, like me, that couldn't participate in the dec. challenge

    Sounds like a great idea to me. Especially the historical aspect. What scale are we going for? For example, on a WWII map would we be looking for a map of the entire Eastern Front, a map of Army Group South, a map of Stalingrad, or a map of the Tractor Works buildings? Each scale would have different markings for troop movements, etc. Would you want troop positions on a smaller scale, since they would be subject to change day-to-day?

    Should this come up as a challenge, I would imagine the scale would be left up to the participants - much like this month's challenge where some are doing regional-scale and others city-scale.

    Post It already happened...

    SG, the December 2008 challenge was the War Map. I know because it was supposed to be the Print map challenge, but Arcana was out of town, so it turned into a normal challenge.

    Anyway, this and any other Challenge Suggestion that has already ran as a monthly challenge should probably be removed from the forum - to avoid confusion like this.

    GP - I'm in agreement with Hoel that a siege and a war are different, which is why I responded the way I did.

    I agree that the suggested challenges that are used should be moved off into a different forum.

    Post That's fine!

    I am in agreement as well, but I think the CLs before altered this suggestion and turned it into a seige map, rather than a war map, based on the same suggestion. However, if they try it again as a war map and not siege - I'm all for that.

    In fact, in a way, my entry this month is really more of a war map, but I am applying the socio-political aspects as per this month's challenge out of my entry.
