Yeah, what I was saying was that the "DC Area" region should be called the "mid-Atlantic" instead.

Drew lives in northern Virginia, which people probably would recognize as the DC area. At the moment, I'm splitting time between Baltimore County and Philly, but after this month I'll be in Philly full-time — and I don't think anyone would refer to either of those as the "DC area." Tyranicus is apparently in Harrisburg, which is definitely not the "DC area." But all of those places are part of the mid-Atlantic region.

You were concerned that "mid-Atlantic" would sweep in New York also, to which my response is that some people use the term that way, but some people don't, and if you have a list that includes "mid-Atlantic" and "NY area," it will be clear from context that New York is not part of the mid-Atlantic in this list.

So changing "DC area" to "mid-Atlantic" is less confusing.
VCH: I believe we settled this way back when: Kelandon was the most attractive.
SoT: You'd be happy, too, if you were such a clever spider.

Yeah, I understood the suggestion.  What I'm saying is that lumping a huge portion of the chart into a single color isn't really the goal.  NY and DC are far enough apart that they definitely deserve different colors, but putting 85% of that set of members/lines into one category (Mid-Atlantic) and 15% into the other one (NY) isn't really helpful.

Ultimately, it looks like there is actually only one member currently in DC* and not a lot of lines in DC -- the real action is in PA.  So I can relabel that category and lump our one actual DC member in with it.  I am torn about whether to make a category just for Philly and southern NJ, or to lump them into a NY/Philly category.  There are more currently charted members there than in New England, but the distance to NY is also a lot closer -- 2-3 hours, versus 4-7 hours.  (I'm also pretty sure that NE has more non-charted but active members, so that first part could potentially change.)

*The metro area.  If you don't like cities representing their metro areas on a national chart, I don't know what to say.

Archmagus Micael lives in England (or at least he did as of a few years ago), and I'm pretty sure that's where he met Nicothodes. Khoth also lived in England the last I heard, but that was also a few years ago. Dikiyoba met Ephesos and Niemand in St. Louis. Andraste met Sporefrog in Arizona. I know that Dikiyoba and Zeviz met each other, Andraste, and Sporefrog at the same time, but I don't recall if it was in Arizona or California.

Iffy and I met Vergil when he was visiting in Colorado Springs. He's been living in Quebec for school, but it's just school. He's from Maryland, so maybe it's better to put him in DC?

Yes. Micael is in the UK still as far as I am aware. Nico definitely met him in the UK.

My connection to Nicothodes should be green, and my connection to Djur should be pink.

...well, the good news is that given the impending meetings later this month, it would have been necessary to reorganize the chart anyway.

Also, that's cool that Nem is implicated now.  He always struck me as someone who would be fun to chill with.

So there are now 7 people who have (well, will have) all met each other.  They are getting a big bubble.

It would be really helpful if Actaeon could meet Nikki; Tyran could meet Neb and Rose; and Rose could meet Bard, Nikki, and Tyran.  Then it could just be a bubble of 10.

First we got a chart to show the meetings between members; now we're planning meetings between members that would yield an aesthetically pleasing chart. :lol:

If it's any consolation, I will probably meet Tyranicus at some point. Timing just didn't work out for this one.

As much as I'd like to connect with Nikki, I'm now half inclined to screw the whole thing up by meeting, like, Andra or Eph instead.

Yeah, it looks as though I really need to meet Aran or Eph just to make the lines worse.

Excellent.  After the Big Meeting Thing happens, I'll post an updated version.  I've already done most of it.  It's... complicated, now.

That's not how lines work.

—Alorael, who posits that it also isn't how dimensions work. He's not that much of a mathematician, though, and frankly with enough dimensions you can make all kinds of ridiculous claims. Especially if some of them are tiny and stringy.
