    I like this, but would prefer to make it a little broader; i.e. just "make a map of the relocation of a national capital".

    About a day left on the extension, and we still only have one entry. @Tsar of New Zealand , @Reagent , or anyone else got entries in the works?

    (I'm debating whether to try whipping one up myself if I have some time tomorrow, but I have two mutually exclusive concepts in mind. Just on the off-chance, which would people be more interested in seeing: Australia, or West Africa?)

    I'll have an entry in tonight ideally, tomorrow afternoon at the latest.

    How about splitting the difference and doing Western Australia?

    Oh my god, I was just trying to post the map I had been working on for weeks and the file was too large! Am I allowed to post a link to the full map to a place like DeviantArt and a smaller size in the main post?

    There's also copy and paste.

    Do you mean copying and pasting it from another website where I have uploaded it? Because that doesn't seem to work.

    Yeah, right-click and copy & paste. If you're doing from Deviantart or Imgur then it should work.

    It looks like you got something figured out, but for future reference - yes, this would be fine. :)

    It will be a few more hours, but I will get a map in tonight.

    EDIT: within an hour

    I've got one in progress which I may be able to knock out tonight (NZ time), but don't hold the whole deal up for my sakes.

    For MotF 192, does the rejection of a certain technology need to be organic (i.e. have widespread approval), or can it be imposed by a ruling clique upon a populace for their own aims?

    What about the reverse route? If e.g. a whole new city is built from scratch and there's only e.g. fibre for telecommunation purposes and a rejection of good old-fashion copper wires which may be theoretically obsolete but still in widespread use anywhere, would this qualify in this contest?

    Hmm, that's sort of the opposite of what was intended, but I worded the description pretty ambiguously. In the interests of fairness, I would allow it.

    I love the Auburn-Opelika area, but how the heck did Opelika end up the capital?
