Enthusiasm is commendable but.... why are the time zones mostly straight lines with little consideration for borders?
I also agree that there are far too many zones delimited here. Remember AO is a region, not the entire world, so this number of time zones is strange (unless we have half-hour time zones... *shudder*)
For me, personally, I can't see how I could justify a relatively small nation like Osarius having multiple time zones. In terms of area, I've always kind of imagined Osarius to be somewhere around the size of Japan, which spans roughly 15 degrees of longitude... which is the "width" of each time zone IRL. Just seems to fit, you know?
There's scope to alter the old time zone map, sure... I just don't think this is the way to go.
It's just his nation's location fell onto the center of a longitude. I had it at 1/24th of the map, and the original was more detailed than that. The Protectorate of Starblaydia, in the original, I fixed the borders, but I accidentally forgot to save it, and I have no idea of your subdivisions. As I said in the thread, tell me if you don't like the timezones that go in your nation.
Seems to me like this was your first mistake. AO is but one part of the world... there's no reason to have 24 time zones in a single region. Would make sense on a world map, but here... not so much.
Not to mention it's not even guaranteed there's 24 hours in a day for every nation. It's most commonly the case, because that's a thing that would seem weird to change for most people, but this is NS and someone could totally say their nation operates on 30 hour days if they wanted to. And that would make 24 subdivisions nonsensical.
Nellietopia recognizes that all space and time revolve around Nellietopia, ergo all time (and space) is coordinated according to NPC. This makes the use of time subdivisions pointless - you can't divide space into time (or time into space... but you can multiply space and time and get energy)!
Now that Pacitalia's here...
All this talk about searching the AO Forum has resulted in the collection of some 'lesser' sporting event histories. You can find them on this acccount in the Factbooks section ( nation=atlantian_oceania/detail=factbook ).
Further to the point, I know we have two "Full Scale" Competitions planned for the upcoming off-season, the AOCAF of course as well as the AOHC.
In addition to this, I was considering running a "Light Competition" - potentially continuing one of the old competitions or a sport we haven't done before. If you guys like the idea I will put the sport to a poll.
In the Light competition, the schedule would look like this:
1) Tournament Announced. Signup by posting a roster or making a signup post then editing in a roster later
Duration: 7-10 Days
2) Group / First Stage Draw takes place
--- Post your RPs Duration: ~1 Week
3) Entire Group / First Stage Scorinated and posted at once, Knockout/Second Phase draw posted
--- Post your RPs Duration: ~1 Week
4) Scores up to Semi-Final (or Final depending on # of signups/rounds) posted
--- Semi-Finalists/Finalists post final RPs Duration: ~1 Week
5) Final Scores posted
I also opened a topic if anyone wants to debate this idea on the aoforum http://www.atlantianoceania.com/index.php?showtopic=2494
I'm sorry, guys. I've failed.
My World Cup has resulted in a Rushmori champion.
