    Hi People.

    For practical purposes, I am making a minor change to the reservation rules. Going forward, I will now delete any reservation more than one year old. I'll be happy to extend any reservation beyond this, all the mapper need to do is to tell me he/she heeds more time, but I need a time limit for management purposes. It is not always easy to get hold of people to ask them if they still need that old reservation, so this makes it easier for me to remove stale reservations.
    One year should normally be way more than enough to complete most maps, so most mappers should never encounter this at all. And again, if anyone do find themselves with the need for more time beyond this, simply tell me. This isn't about rushing the mapper or pose a time limit on the mapping, it is merely a tool for me to be able to more easily clean up old reservations that will probably never be completed anyway.

    This seems perfectly sensible Monsen. Perhaps it would be worth noting here any such expirations, should this mechanism be needed, in case it might tempt someone else to take over that area?

    I won't be doing that, simply because that adds yet another thing to my workload. It is extremely simple for me to semi-automatically remove the reservations from the map tree, while constructing a post identifying such an area would actually be at the very least 10 times as much work, and all these small things do add up. Combined with the fact that with all the available space in the atlas, I assume this will be an extremely rare event in any case, so this information will be mostly wasted.

    If anyone is after a particular area that is reserved and they see it continues to lie undeveloped for a long time, I suggest you contact the person directly, their name is below the work in progress image you see when you click in on a reservation.

    I fully intend to finish Sanctuary this time. I'm just working on an annual right now ;)

    I'm going to look over the areas I have already mapped on the Forlorn Archipelago, large areas, and look at putting a town in there.

    Somewhere in this area: ( Its the Dead Forest near the Lonely Lighthouse. On Basher Bay) I'll be mapping some of the abandoned towns and maybe the keeps.

    First one will be Village of the Salt Gatherers. Area map, then zooming in. I'll start a thread for it.

    I've now added a feature to the online version atlas that shows the list of maps each mapper has contributed.

    The list also shows reservations, so you can easily see if you have a reservation you forgot about.

    The list should also be helpful in spotting mistakes in my map registrations (caught a few myself when I made this).

    You can find this list here, and it is also linked from the main mappers page in the atlas.

    Wow. I made 25. I hadn't realized I had made that many.

    Such a great addition Monsen! Thanks so much. I was browsing only a few weeks ago trying to find a specific map made by Jerry.

    How close are we to 300 maps ? Or did I miss some and we are past that point ?

    This set of maps brought us to 252 maps (you can always check the current number on the download page.

    I guess 250 maps is a very nice milestone too, a quarter of the way to 1000.
