Hi, I'm Chazeltine from sunny California in the United States. I stumbled upon OpenGeoFiction quite by accident during one of my digital trailblazers across the cartography sector of the internet, and OGF has been a regular port of call ever since.
While I have my passion for geofiction, my educational background is in economics, accounting, and foreign languages. My approach to mapping in OGF incorporates all this, and you'll often find me providing commentary on the wiki as well about the socioeconomical, cultural, and business aspects of OGF.
When I'm not working, I'm reading up on geography, history, urban development, or cultures to broaden my perspectives about what we can add to the OGF world to make it richer.
Tigeria (map) is my principal country. I've laid down most of the geographical features, and I am dividing my time between laying out the cities, constructing the infrastructure, and refining the geography. I've subdivided the territory into Tigeria and Kotel.
For reference, Tigeria is roughly the size of the U.S. state of Maryland, or the size of Belgium.
Big Park (map) was the site of my groundbreaking in OGF. More specifically, the 1/201 junction (map) was the location of my first changeset, where I constructed the beginnings of Big Park Boulevard from what was then a humble T-intersection. I return to Big Park periodically to continue expanding it neighborhood by neighborhood and to add various infrastructure in the surrounding hills. I also constructed the West Commonia High Speed Rail line from Big Park all the way to Hamabaurgs and remapped the West Commonian capital, Chanunwa (map).
I'm mapping the west side of Gobras City north of the World Port (map).

- Tarephia Cooperation Council
- Lycene League
- De Kotel Society, an environmental not-for-profit organization

Icebreaker of the Month
Since there continues to be community interest in the Icebreakers of the Month, I will continue these. Every month (unless there is a Poll of the Month), I will post an icebreaker question to the forum.
Suggested Icebreaker Questions
Poll of the Month
In order to gauge user satisfaction on OGF, I will be posting a Poll of the Month every three months to the forum. The polls are anonymous (except to me; I will ask for usernames to prevent extra responses from the same user that could invalidate the poll responses). The responses will be shared with the OGF community at the beginning of the next month for discussion and action.
