From talking with various players, I've realized that we're weaving a wide cloth of social relationships. Many of us know each other through previous encounters, live near each other, or have met up in real life. I've started an attempt to document these relationships. It's fascinating for me seeing the connections fill up as I learn more. Between the 1st and second edition of the chart, Jareeta managed to connect the seattle group with the Bali and Talon.

The image is quite large, and I hope to fill up more of the space in the future.

Version 4.6

If you know or have met a skyrates player in real life, please feel free to explain your relationship here, or finding me elsewhere. If there are corrections needed, or extra connections to add, please also let me know.

If you have a suggestion for how to make the chart better, for example, different kinds of connections, please also let me know.

Finally, there's the matter of privacy. I have no intention to violate someone's desire to be kept anonymous. If there's info on here about you that you don't want public to the community, please let me know, either PM, posting here, or by any other means. Don't feel pressured to give info about yourself if you arn't comfortable.

Let's see just how connected we all are!

I know Batty Den from Livejournal, and in fact got him hooked.

I've met Nerath and Thespian during a trip to Cambridge in January.

I know there's another friend of mine who plays, but I don't know what his skyrate is named...

EDIT: Also, you might want to add a new type of line for "knows but hasn't met", and maybe "Is related to and/or is an alt of".

I'm a little worried about doing this. I think from interviewing just a few people on IRC, that lots of skyrates have talked to people over the computer or phone, but never met in real life. I'm just nervous about things getting a little too complex.

Looks pretty good, Harris. I think you have a few spelling points there? At least Hesjonur, Tethran, and Thugnificent, unless I mistake my spelling?

Mani Redlyn has asked me to point out that I'm in a relationship with her, upon penalty of brain-eating.

How about "Knew before Skyrates"?

Phedre, Knappe, and Ellington have met each other, Aeauna and the Matt are together, and Aeauna met BL.

I do believe Silent and I live in the same city, or so he says. Aside from that I know no other Skyrates in real life.

I don't think UC has met Mig, though I could be mistaken.

More specifically, BL and Aeauna lived in the same city at one point, and I got to meet him as well. Also, me and Aeauna are dating/living together! :remylove:

I'm in Fairbanks, or you could have been thinking of Manik who is in Kenai. There is a pretty large chance we know someone who knows someone who knows us. I mean, it /is/ Alaska.. :remycute:

I've updated the chart to version 3.2

Keep letting me know things to add/take off/modify!

EDIT: I removed the "lives/lived in same city" relationship, as it isn't really one at all. I want to keep this to people who have actually met in real life, not just talked through the computer or lived geographically near each other.

Oh, I forgot, Mani and I have met both Atomsk and she's met Thug. We also all went to the same high school at the same time, just not in the same grades.

Version 3.3.2 posted!

I've also added a bit on past versions, for anyone who wants to trace the growth of this chart. As always, let me know about what to add/remove/alter! Thanks for everyone who has sent in information. You know who you are!

Ok, after a night of work, we're up to version 4.1! I'll now commence my waiting for submissions of data. I'm also investigating a program Sluor tipped me off on. Please keep sending in data!

Updated with version 4.4 in the first post!

I've added a new feature. Skyrates who hail from other continents get a neat shadow/halo around their names. This is a way to highlight the adventuresome skyrates who have made real life connections across the globe.

As of now, the illustrious Mahmoth is the only intercontinental skyrate to meet up with another player. Come on gang, lets see some skyrates meet ups abroad!

/me eyes the Aussie skyrates
