Why are Franchises without any link to the map seen as "ressources" but a loose-leaf-collection of sport related map places (to prevent overwikification!) named "fun page" in a disparaging way?--Mstr (talk) 22:31, 15 July 2019 (CEST)

Good question, and I've kinda been wondering that, too. I'd say because Sports "flirts with Overwikification" and Franchises are map related, although not mapped (some are, especially in places Bruno has been detailing recently)

I think the franchises page is probably in a sort of gray area as of right now: while some mappers consult this list to see what brands they can add to their own state for their mapping, others simply add brands that are barely mapped at all, just so they feel like they've "contributed," to say the least.
In my opinion, Wangi's suggestions would be a good way to reduce overwikification on that page, so it can still be a valuable resource to mappers, while deterring overwikification: should those be implemented, I can safely say that it belongs to the resources side as opposed to the "fun pages." But as it stands right now, I feel a compelling case could be made for it to be placed in either category.

I think this is a better conversation for the OGF:Federal States/Franchises page, not necessarily here. Although for what it's worth, I see the Franchises page as more of a resource (or rather once it's in better shape it should be a resource) as the page gives other state mappers recommendations on what national brands they can include in their states whereas OGF:Federal States/Sports is where mappers list teams that only exist in one location on the map. -TheMayor (talk) 00:43, 16 July 2019 (CEST)

Hi! I know they’re not open yet, but what are the real life comparatives to East and West Massodeya? I might be interested —Megacity2005Creator (talk) 04:00, 3 August 2019 (CEST)

"It’s a mix of green, orange, and purple territories
"Each state will probably be divided into 15-20 counties, each of which can be claimed by newer mappers. The states will start with some preliminary mapping (rivers, railways, motorways, primary roads); county owners will be prohibited from adding any new motorways and primary roads, and new railroads are restricted to spurs that don’t leave the county"
"Each county will have a population cap for their largest city and for the county as a whole. New mappers can get a low-cap county no questions asked; mid-range caps require mapping in blue territories first; high-cap counties need admin approval. The county-wide population cap is 3x the largest city; mappers can boost that to 4x if they submit a plan before claiming
The idea is that if a mapper can stay active in their county for three months, they can “graduate” into getting a full state in the FSA
This should help with some of the turnover issues we’ve been having with some of the newer FSA members"

More details about the Massodeyas will be posted closer to when the territories open up. Officially they are still a work in progress. -TheMayor (talk) 07:02, 3 August 2019 (CEST)
Could veteran members claim counties as well? --Yoyo21 (talk) 13:52, 3 August 2019 (CEST)
That will be up to wangi (since it’s still officially territory assignment) but I think at this point preference would be given to non-FSA stateowners. -TheMayor (talk) 15:39, 3 August 2019 (CEST)
