Since so many seem to be entertaining themselves with the idea...

Is this something we want to pursue?

Yes- but the Northeast, IDS, and Mideast stay the same.

Yes, but it depends on how they are redrawn. If it's done by current registration, there would have to be 3 regions as opposed to 4 or 5, due to the density of the Northeast.

Yes absolutely. The Northeast and IDS should remain intact though.

They don't necessarily have to be equal, just balanced enough to function. Activity doesn't come from having numbers. Merging the Pacific and Midwest would give a large region with an inactive population.

That isn't redrawing the regions map, that's redrawing a line between the Pacific and Midwest.

I'm considering moving to the Midwest once I'm done with my term. You guys seem like you need a lot more activity, and in addition I really hate snow.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

I'm also considering a move to the Midwest if things in the ME don't pan out to my liking.

Which is the only thing that's really necessary.

It's been a long time since I've commented in Atlasia...

No. There's nothing wrong with the present map.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

I know, I'm still planning to run for ME Assembly in July. The end of my term (if I were to be elected) would be in September.

I don't understand how you guys think the region map needs seriously redrawn, and then only want to redraw the two left-wing regions.

You people seem to forget what happened last time we attempted major political change, when we disbanded the RPP and JCP- and look at morass that's left us in.

I agree, if that is as far as people are willing to go then this is the most pointless and counterproductive exercise possible.

Several of us have been talking about condensing the map into three regions for quite a while.  So obviously, I'd be a Yes.

I think it became too serious of an idea (pertaining to the last 24 hours of talk); I just like making maps. Smiley

They don't necessarily have to be equal, just balanced enough to function. Activity doesn't come from having numbers. Merging the Pacific and Midwest would give a large region with an inactive population.

True about the size/function, but I am curious as to what other way the regions could be divided without going off of numbers? Activity would be a great way to base it, but how exactly do you quantify that into the process?

If these maps are the alternatives, I would rather just keep the regions as they are currently drawn.  Tongue
