    Default February 2014 Entry: The Mapiest place in the galaxy!

    I know it's a little late to enter as it's 1 AM here but I started working on it the 8th of February so... another space map! We talked a lot about stars in the CWBP2, that's where I got the idea.

    My idea was to represent every members of the Guild on a single map. Every member is a star. Some are brighter than others. The brightness mostly depends on the numbers on messages as of February 8th. A mix of serious and less scientific information is listed on the left. I can't guarantee that I have the 43 243 stars but I tried to have the right number. I used a click counter and duplicated the layers... Anyway it will be hard to verify.

    We are all made of stars? This is an amazing idea, wonderful way to visualize the guild.

    That's a brilliant idea! It makes me think of network models (like peer to peer or financial connections) that actually looks like galaxies or nets. So, makes sense to map the guild this way (with an artistic vision)!

    That would be cool but it would require a program or sometng to sort out the connections between people. My main trading lines are (where) linking community leaders because they are the spine of the community (sort of). Now I extended it to other worlds.

    so here's an update

    I consider adding more names but I'm not sure there enough space left. It might become too crowded. I still need to add a couple of things.

    As anyone already seen a 3 dimensional compass rose ?

    THIS is what I was trying to do! But you've done a much better job laying it out than I did, so I'm glad I bombed out...
