Wooo, I'm on the chart! Nalyd is also very sweet and plays with nails casually

If i'm not incorrect, this should be somewhat what the graph should look like by the end of June. Holla if there are any errors.

I get different counts for a few of those on your chart -- not sure if I'm missing something though.

Yeah, self-edges are a bane of... well, something :p

I'm updating mine now.  There are one or two edges not on yours and one or two minor updates that I never bothered to upload.  I'm trying to decide what to do with colors, as the clumps are becoming less relevant.  My best thought right now is approximate current location.  What do other people think?

I haven't gone through the whole thing, but I see at least one node missing from the dot code.  Was it based on the latest graph?

Oh, no, it's still based on Sylae's CSV. I'll check for the differences.

Edit: I think I've made a mistake importing that, though, because eg. Actaeon -- Rose is missing.

Edit2: No wait, that edge is also missing from the CSV, as are two of Nico's.

No missing nodes, though. Note that each edge is only listed in one direction (namely alphabetical).

Edit: Does the edge color represent location? Because in that case, I met Diki in California and Tyran in France, so those edges should be red and purple, not purple and green.

Tyranicus is now the uncontested center, as near as I can tell.

I think this code reflects the new chart. Checked most of the degree counts.

Yes -- will correct those line colors.  Also, if anyone wants to fill in line colors for the unknown gray lines (or current locations for the gray boxes) I'll add those in too.

Re Goldengirl, there wasn't room without enlarging the dimensions of the whole chart.  I may try to do some reorganizing in the future but there just isn't really a great way to deal with the quasi-septangle of the SW corner no matter what.

If I remember correctly, Drew met Andraste. Have fun with that line, given the way the diagram is set up now.

At the time (possibly still now?), Dareva was "South." Feo Takahari is "California." If "Wiz" is Wizcozski, she's "California" too.

And "DC Area" should probably be called "Mid-Atlantic," because I'm not in the DC area.

Slarty's definition of "DC Area" seems to include anything in a 2-hour radius of DC. I'm no closer to DC than you are.

I'm also definitely mid-Atlantic, not DC. I used to live in the DC area, but I don't really anymore. And when I met up with Slarty I was living in New England.

—Alorael, who can contribute that Dragyn Bob was also mid-Atlantic when they had their near-miss. And SMoE was too, but he hasn't been for a very long time. Neither have been Spiderwebbers for a long time, too, for whatever that's worth.

I originally had it labelled as Mid-Atlantic, but that label would normally include New York too, wouldn't it?  If there is a better suggestion for the area centered around DC, though, I'll take it.

The goal with the areas was to balance specificity with broadness in order to represent the most relevant substance with the least sensory overload.  Suggestions about delimiting them differently are welcome, too.

Maybe, but maybe not. If you have New York separately listed, I think it would be clear in context.

I mean, if you're choosing between calling Philadelphia part of the "DC Area" — which no one does — and calling Philadelphia but not New York part of the "mid-Atlantic" — which some people do — the latter seems better to me.

Whatever you call the region, Lord Grimm should be part of it instead of New York. He's in southern NJ, so he's much closer to Philly than he is to New York. I have no idea if the Silent Assassin still resides there or not.

I wasn't aware that anyone was in Philly in the first place.  Is that where you are, Kel?  Last I heard, rightly or wrongly, was DC, which is all your color was based off of.

I'm pretty comfortable lumping even southern NJ in with NY.  And I think these are big enough categories on the chart to keep DC and NY separate.  Having separate DC and Philly categories would be awkward because the biggest contributor to either is Tyranicus and his many lines, which (correct me if I'm wrong here) are about equally distant from both.  Perhaps it would make sense to put Philly with NY and NJ, while keeping southern PA with DC.

There are bigger discrepancies -- compare Ephesos with the rest of the "Midwest" category -- but I want to avoid creating more categories where possible.

I wasn't aware that anyone was in Philly in the first place.  Is that where you are, Kel?  Last I heard, rightly or wrongly, was DC, which is all your color was based off of.

I'm pretty comfortable lumping even southern NJ in with NY.  And I think these are big enough categories on the chart to keep DC and NY separate.  Having separate DC and Philly categories would be awkward because the biggest contributor to either is Tyranicus and his many lines, which (correct me if I'm wrong here) are about equally distant from both.  Perhaps it would make sense to put Philly with NY and NJ, while keeping southern PA with DC.

What I believe Kel was saying is that you should have a "mid-Atlantic" region that lumps Philly, DC, and Baltimore into one. As for my location, Harrisburg is slightly closer to Philly than it is to DC, but it's even closer to Baltimore.
