The Return of Explorerbase
 
That's right! Explorerbase has finally returned to the World Wide Web! :)
It can now be found at http://explorerbase.wordpress.com. Not all the pages from the original site have been transferred there yet, but all the sector data is present and the rest of the pages will be coming along soon.

Welcome back!

I need to ping you with some observations about population densities...

Glad to see you're back!

Cheers,

Thanks! :) What are those observations?

Scratch that - everything is fine. :) I updated travellermap to point to your new URLs as data sources/credits.

Just to confim, I'm using these sectors of yours:

Core-Trailing:
* Spangele
* Tar'G'kell'p
* Grikr!ng
* Ukaarriit!!b

Spinward:
* Harea
* Tlyasea

Rimward:
* Amderstun

Of those, most are pretty barren. I noticed that Grikr!ng has more population in the rim-adjacent areas than some nearby sectors (and the adjacent parts of Mugheen't) but it's not problematic.

Other notes:

* Amderstun (and adjacent Holowon) are both high-population/high-importance areas, which may not fit the setting and may get moved to be "Faraway" sectors. Still waffling on that.

* I have not incorporated your Hfiywitir Sector / Etra worlds. Are you actively developing those?

* Luretiir!girr is getting fleshed out by Jim Kundert, which has paved over the dotmap I had.

Okay. The high population in Amderstun was mainly based on the idea that there would've been Solomani colonisation rimward of the Solomani Sphere (artificial borders of Charted Space, etc.), and there would still be minor races arising outside of the "borders of Charted Space". Several of the polities do have some more detailed background.

Elsewhere on the forum there's a thread where I developed the Etra species. I haven't written more about the individual worlds yet; would you like me to do so?

Okay; good to know, I'll work on other sectors instead.

Thank you both! :)

Now, we'll need to update all the links in the Traveller Wiki to the new address for Explorerbase as well. That might be more difficult, as the search function doesn't seem to work for the sources of pages... I guess my own contributions history would include all of them?

UPDATE: I think I've fixed all the links that were pointing at the Wikispaces site. Can anyone verify that?

How cool. Didn't there used to be several hundred sites in the Traveller webring? What happened to them all?
