Hope you don't mind that I added my country in; Castellanese is spoken in Tierajas-Verdes. I'm debating the merit of adding the countries second language though, Pavparvati speaken in the north. --Aces California (talk) 10:27, 18 November 2017 (CET)

I really appreciate this kind of effort! While I share the general points that are to be improved already mentioned on the diaries, I'm much more optimistic that this kind of overview map could end up being quite useful if done right. And about not always being up to date; that might me true, but the map will be useful for new mappers to figure out where to fit their country language wise nontheless. I think the first step would be to ensure that the list of languages etc. is actually up to date, as well as the respective language families. Also, maybe instead of circles, we could just colour in every nation with the respective colour; I don't think it would be necessecary for a language overview map to communicate info such as total population speaking etc, it should just focus on the geographic distribution of languages.Leowezy (talk) 12:14, 18 November 2017 (CET)

OGF page or 'in world' wiki page? If you use the 'real' names of languages as well as the in-world name, for consistency this should be an OGF page, with an 'OGF:' prefix. I'll leave you to decide what you want to do with it, but this will need to be decided.--Udilugbuldigu (talk) 00:08, 19 November 2017 (CET)

Another version

Hi everyone, Here is a "country by country" version of the map (see around Zylanda - Western Archanta). It has the merit of being precise, but is heavy and requires the participation of every country owner. Drapeau Surricie.png Talk to a Surrician 20:18, 20 November 2017 (CET)

Hey, great idea ! I like your version. Just hope people will participate and fill step by step the whole map. It's even better than mine, I'm jealous :) Don't you think we should fill completely the country we own rather than keeping it grey. It would be even more visible ? Maybe you could complete the languages colour table to help the people. Good job ! --Rémi (talk) 08:47, 21 November 2017 (CET)

Hi, I completed the color table and slightly modified the map. Country color is not gray, but the same color as the language family on this page. The outline is the color of the real subgroup on Wikipedia. If the language is not categorized in a subgroup, the color of the outline is the same as that of the group (as in Commonia).

Looks promising to me. Some modifications to groups are necessary. Note that "Hellanisian" is not a general term for Ulethan isolates, but one of several one-language subroups, "Bloric" being another. Changing the subgroup name to "Other ulethan languages" would correctly include Bloregian (bloric group). --LemonKing (talk) 10:10, 16 December 2017 (CET)
