I've re-tooled the Quadrant level Events classification in order to accommodate the 10 by 10 galactic map design that I've laid out in my head.

Other than that, I believe the main Manifesto is finished, any other work beyond that should be able to be done by the AAC, once elected, but I'll give this a few more days. Once again, if you're going to make a creature to submit, notify me here or by PM. I already know omega, keno, badger, and UFO are, as well as myself, from memory...

When will you have the galactic map up?

Well, it's supposed to be basic, easy to understand and see borders, and to do that, it can only be a simple black-white monotone with white markers and lines(large lines denoting Quadrants), on a black background. I might throw in an Outer Rim, Mid-Rim, and Inner Rim as well, just for the hell of it, but it'll be pretty barren until good size empires start showing up due to the colorings of the borders and territory. It will also be rather large, so that we can have a lot of Markers(denoting important planets/black hole/anything really) in a single sector. The galaxy as a whole will be 10 sectors by 10 sectors, totaling 100 sectors, with Quadrants being 5 by 5, totaling 25. Quadrants will be named in a counter-clockwise fashion, starting with Alpha, then Beta, then Gamma, then Delta(beneath Alpha). The lines themselves with start at 0 at the x and y-axis, and count positive up(or right)/negative down(or left) from there, like a normal graph.

I'd prefer it if we had most of the civilizations we'll be starting off with in the Alpha Quadrant, in order for them to logically be able to wind up contacting each other.

Oh, and King, what do you think of my AAC Creature idea?

I do approve, but I think that the galaxy background image can be colorful and everything. Just look at what I did in a couple of minutes:

It will work out fine if it's colorful, just as long as it's not too flashy, like these:

Oh, and how large will the main galaxy be? The Milky Way is 100,000 light years across, the Andromeda Galaxy is 220,00 light years in diameter, and the Triangulum Galaxy is 50,000 light years long.

I think that I would like to join this on second thought. Is it okay to sent an application now, or is the AC yet to be finalized (an as such I should wait)?

The objective was to have a few creatures already made, besides mine, when the Manifesto is finalized, but I'm thinking that's not going to work out. So basically send the submission whenever, it's still just me reviewing until we hold elections.

@UFO
I'm thinking 50,000 light years across, with each sector being 5,000 by 5,000 light years, 25,000 square light years. And I really doubt the image could be colorful, since you have to remember that it's an extremely large image as well, and the image would be stretched rather far. Plus it also makes people want to pile up on the "galaxy." I just don't want anyone getting confused by a background image when they try to read the borders/territory/markers.

Alright, then. So the Yerxe are all in order, and I'm eligible for a seat on the AAC?

I'd like a seat, then. But who votes in the elections? Everybody?

Yeah. Everybody. I'm considering reducing it until we gain more members though, then it'll be three in total.

I've finished my creature's "planet," and one of the five races(uncolored drawing though).

Just wanted to say I'm in on this. I'm fine tuning my race's biology and piecing together their culture.

Well, kind of take the apocalypse map, and remove the lines denoting continents. Add some other lines. I think the style I have in mind will look very nice, once I show you an example, whenever I get home (saturday-late or sunday).
