  • Hi - please expand on the language you plan on mapping with. Note it should be African based. Also there are issues with the desire for "best" infrastructure - that's not the goal for this area of Archanta. Will also need a sketch map. Thanks/wangi (talk) 11:31, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Hi Wangi, Thank you for your imput! Of course, the country will have an Niger-Congo ( South and West African primarily Ghana and Namibia focus . Infrastructure is good with the country focused on continuing to develop. The country does have a stable government in place committed to doing what's best for it's people.

Update: The name of the country will be changed to The Republic of Kinkosi.

Hi, i'm confused - i'm still getting the vibe that what you're really looking to do is map as is the territory was still Rodo? I cannot see how finishing Casa Brava works within the theme. Have you considered the Federal States? /wangi (talk) 14:00, 6 June 2022 (UTC)
Wangi, No I do not wish to do a continue the same mapping for Casa Brava. My intent and goal is to follow the process set forth following Archanta. Casa Brava will go away!
Ok, can you review the plan above and update based on the Casa Brava statement (it features in the proposal and you also flag a desire to complete it) and a reduced infrastructure. Thanks/wangi (talk) 10:28, 8 June 2022 (UTC)
Wangi, I would like to change my Territory request from AR103 to AR101 to start my nation off on a clean slate and avoid any conflict with past mapping ie. Cas Brava thanks.
Ok, what I'd like to offer is a trial area within either AR102 or AR009, to focus on natural mapping initially. It can then be reviewed at a later date and opened out to the complete territory. I can take care of any existing mapping. What do you think? /wangi (talk) 13:56, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
Okay, lets go with AR009
Ok, i'll complete the territory process later on today, but feel free to edit in https://opengeofiction.net/relation/306474 before then. Thanks/wangi (talk) 14:50, 14 June 2022 (UTC)

Conditionally approved, with edits restricted to within a specified 20000 km² area and primarily focussed on natural features. A further application should be made within six months to review and fully assign the territory. /wangi (talk) 16:31, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
