It's a very interesting idea Batfalcon. But I am afraid on your map I need some help. For instance, opposite the town of Lavria seems to be a small island called Greece? Is this right? I need a geography lesson because I thought Greece was part of mainland Europe surrounded by lots of small islands NOT called Greece.
The map you see is from http://www.mapquest.com which whever you zoom in enough, writes the name of the country at the bottom right corner. In this case it is written on this small island, which by the way is called Makronissos. (in English "long island").
Anyway Michael, it is not that the thread was unsuccessful. It has just not succeeded (as best we hoped) YET.
I some suspect people may have dificulty in creating a map and may be worried about copyright etc.
The idea itself I think is excellent !! Well done.
