Truth be told, I'd play the sample map if you cleaned up the borders and connecting dots.

Yeah, but its pretty plain. Wait until you see the entries before you make a such a judgment ;) I got a feeling that they're going to be some good ones.

Is there an image available without the names of the places listed? Just for the sake of getting the borders right.

Heh, I was only poking gentle fun at the map's purgatorial status in the foundry. There is something to be said about a simple, clean, crisp map, but yes, I'm looking forward to the entries.

I noticed a couple of spelling mistakes, can I use the correct spelling for those couple of territories?

Dept-Rivieres should be Sept-Rivieres for 7 Rivers and Chalivoix should be Charlivoix. Also on a couple the accented 'e' is wrong. i.e. Chaudière is the correct spelling and accented 'e'. On the current map the accent over the e is going in the opposite direction. I forget the reason why it is important, but it is.

I think that names should be left alone at least until the contest is over then you can fix them. It would keep all the entries the same name wise at least. Makes for more fair voting?

"hmm, map A definitely looks 3 times better than all the rest put together, but map B has the right accent on the e so I'm going to vote B"...

Is this a likely scenario? ;)

YES. ACCENT MARKS MAKE ME HAPPY. My happiness leaves along with punctuation, natty. Commas, apostrophes, periods, the whole crew - I deeply care for them all...except for semicolons, they can go rot with Q and the underscore key in virtual hell for all I care.
