Indeed. You have to post a larger picture, so people can read it and make their comments.

good idea, too bad nobody likes us maps anymore. i would like to see a West Coast map. what would be cool is a West Coast vs. East Coast map. there wouldnt be anyterritories in between, just the Coasts.

I updated the map.

I think some of the continents, The ones of the east more, are too dark and hard to see. Anybody else agree?
Also give feedback and reasons.

No, I didn't, I made it myself, and it took a while, the only thing is I don't know about what colors should be used, and what graphics to include.
So, what colors should I use?

Please give ideas for colors to use and any other problems or things you like about it.

ALso, any thing about which program you think I should use would be nice.

I tried Inkscape but I didn't like it.

inkscape is very good if you take the time to get used to it. Any program will take some getting used to in fact. If you have photoshop that would be the best but I'm assuming you don't because you would have already made it in that.

But if you are going to make the map in Paint I would suggest you stop wasting your time. It will take much longer, be more work for you, and not look nearly as good as the map could look if you used a legit editing program.

I could switch, but any recommendation on what to switch to?

Why does everybody hate paint?

I see, good point. The only thing is Photoshop at some point will cost money, and I'm poor.

I use imageshack.
Okay, for the names I used the text tool, in Paint.
The colors will be redone in something other than paint.
