Open Collaboratives

Open Collaboratives are open to all OGF mappers, with the following constraints:

  • All mappers are encouraged to check the existing state plans before editing to ensure new mapping complies with the overall vision for the state.
  • Motorways, railways, and major waterways should not be altered, except to add more detail.
  • New cities with a population larger than 100,000 are not permitted. New cities with a population larger than 50,000 must be approved by a state coordinator first.
  • Coordinators may revert edits of non-conforming changes.

Guided Collaboratives

Guided Collaboratives are official FSA collaborative projects, most of which date back to the FSA's launch and are intended to showcase the best collaborative mapping in the nation. Coordinators oversee the planning and mapping of each Guided Collaborative state, although some decisions may be considered national issues decided by the FSA community as a whole. New mappers must contact state coordinators before mapping in these states.

Limited Collaboratives

Limited Collaboratives are semi-private FSA collaborative projects: mappers are assigned a county in a Limited Collaborative state by the admin team through the usual territory request procedures. Mappers are expected to collaborate with neighboring counties and follow the overall state plan, but are otherwise pretty free to map their county as they see fit.

Closed Collaboratives

Closed Collaboratives are private FSA collaborative projects that are fully organized, planned, and mapped by two or more mappers, with (applicant state) or without (partnership state) the opportunity for other mappers to potentially join the project. In Applicant States, new mappers must apply to map in the state and may be approved or denied by the state's coordinators.

Non-Collaboratives are private FSA states held by an individual owner. While these owners are fully expected to collaborate with neighboring states and with the FSA community as a whole, these states are generally mapped exclusively by its sole owner.

Recent FSA News

  • 2020-07-07: Vote Results
  • The draft rail framework was overwhelmingly approved 31-2. Michisaukee becomes the name of the AR120-31 open collaborative state, beating out Rahronkas on a tiebreaker.
  • 2020-06-25: FSA Railway Draft Framework Vote
  • After drafting the FSA railway draft framework, receiving comments and suggestions, making changes, receiving more comments and suggestions, and so on, the draft framework is now being voted on for approval. FSA stateowners can cast their votes here. (This ballot also includes the final vote for the AR120-31 open collaborative state's name; please be sure to vote.)
  • 2020-06-22: FSA Railway Draft Framework
  • 2020-06-19: FSA Railway Advisory Survey Complete
  • Results of the railway advisory survey are now posted at OGF:Federal States/Railways. A draft procedural plan will be developed in the next week or two and presented for consideration in the FSA forums.
  • 2020-06-07: FSA History Committees
  • The initial sign-up period for OGF:Federal States/History committees has ended. Committees should now begin collaborating on their historic era, starting by identifying a committee chairperson who will be responsible for keeping discussions and collaborations moving forward. As a reminder, each committee is tasked with creating a draft history for their era that will be integrated into the official "canon" of the Federal States as best as possible.

Project Coordinator's Message

  • The overwhelming vote to approve the draft rail framework, which was designed and drafted every step of the way with input from a wide variety of FSA stateowners, was an incredible result. In the coming days, we will be updating OGF:Federal States/Railways with new procedures and suggestions from the draft framework that will allow us to finally move forward in a coordinated, collaborative, consistent method with this important part of the FSA map. Thank you for your consideration, thank you for your input and comments, thank you for your votes, and most of all thank you for your patience and maturity on this important topic. -TheMayor (talk) 05:58, 7 July 2020 (CEST)

About the Project

The Federal States of Archanta is a unique project within the OpenGeofiction community. The FSA is a single nation comprised of 62 states (and a few territories) mapped in a North American style. Within OGF, states are allocated similar to other nations; however, each stateowner is responsible for collaborating closely with neighbors and articipating in national discussions and initiatives to guide the overall mapping development of the nation.

Rights and Responsibilities of FSA Mappers

The following is an overview of the expectations of mappers in the FSA, and basic information about the FSA's organizational structure.

  1. The AR120 project, also known as the Federal States of Archanta, is an American-style country that is also one of the OGF community's largest collaborative mapping projects. All mappers of any skill level are welcome and encouraged to participate.
  2. State owners have additional responsibilities above and beyond collaborative participants. The right to own a state is not absolute and can be revoked with just cause by the OGF admin team.
  3. As part of this collaborative nation, state owners are expected to participate actively; maintain the national cohesion of the country; and coordinate with neighboring state owners on interstate issues.
  4. Matters of national importance are determined by discussion and consensus of the various state owners in the AR120 forum. In these discussions, each mapper is treated fairly and equally, and each mapper is able to have their opinion heard, respected, and considered; however, all mappers are expected to abide by the final consensus.
  5. The FSA Coordinator is responsible for organizing and maintaining these discussions and helps to build consensus on national issues. As a state owner, the coordinator is able to express his or her opinion in discussions and is expected to facilitate consensus-building exercises, but is not able to unilaterally veto or approve any recommendations without a consensus among the other state owners. The FSA Coordinator is not a member of the OGF admin team and is subject to a Vote of Confidence among the mappers of the FSA every six months.
  6. All state owners are expected to adhere to these rights and responsibilities, in addition to the standard OGF community rules. Ownership of a state can be revoked by the OGF admin team at any time for just cause.
  7. All matters of state ownership, including adoption and expulsion procedures, are exclusively the responsibility of the OGF admin team. The admin team is not bound by the rights and responsibilities included in this list.
  8. When a new mapper takes ownership of a state that was previously mapped, all existing mapping that the mapper does not wish to retain must be offered for adoption and relocation by other mappers before being deleted. Some mapped areas may be deemed areas of national interest whose alteration or removal may be restricted or prohibited.
  9. All mapping is expected to be in a realistic North American style, predominantly mapped in Ingerish (English). Areas with historic influences may be mapped in indigenous or other colonial languages.
  10. The sovereignty of each state mapper is an essential part of this unique national collaborative. Any mapping that otherwise complies with the above rights and responsibilities is encouraged and should be protected from any outside interference.
