I made this a month or two ago and totally forgot to finish it. Tried to keep it simple - I hope it makes sense.

Text surrounded by asterisks (*) is italicized.
Text surrounded by plus signs (+) is bolded.
Text surrounded by vertical bars (|) is quoted. If you double-click a paragraph, it will be quoted.
Text surrounded by tildes (~) is blocked out.
Symbols such as *, +, |, and ~ can be used literally by placed a \ in front of the text.
A user's name surrounded by at signs (@) links to their profile, and the user is notified that you mentioned them.
A word surrounded by hash signs (#) becomes a tag and links to posts with that tag.
Text after a blank line that is indented by two or more spaces is reproduced verbatim in a different font.
URLs become links. However, new users cannot post links in comments.
Hubski URLS become embedded cards, displaying information about the post or comment.
Text can link to URLs by using the following format: [linked text](http://theurl.com)
Youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud, Twitter, and Spotify urls will embed the content automatically.
Image URLs (.png, .tif, .gif, and .jpg) will embed automatically.
Interesting to see how clustered the U.S. is. I wonder if there was an optimal size in mind when drawing up the U.S. And if so, what informed that? Also, your illustration makes me realize how woefully bad I am at European abbreviations.
Haha, do Europeans actually forget about Alaska a lot?
I didn't! It's just that it is twice as big as Texas, which would have skewed and ruined the whole design. I put / hid '<- AK (1477) ' at the left end of the scale bar.
Okay, I figured you left it off for scale. But it's a tough choice, because even us in the States forget how big Alaska is and need a reminder.
Can I get this as a large print? I think it would make a neat poster.
Shipping posters across the Atlantic is really expensive. I could send you a pdf in print size if you want to!
That sounds awesome! I'd gladly pay you in whatever form you most prefer for the privilege.
No need to. Can you send a PM with the paper size, your mail and whether you want me to leave anything out (e.g. title, country codes)?
Ok, moved into the new apartment, now I've just got to pick a wall and decide how big I want this thing.
Let me know when you've found a size!
Yeah, Sweden is huge. I'm actually going there this summer on a road trip, I'll see how big it really is.
