Map of Non-Monogamy Re-Revisited

[Edit] There is yet another update to the map here. You can also find my book on non-monogamy here.

Because my brain is totally broken...

I woke up very, very early this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, because it suddenly occurred to me that entire classes of non-monogamy were missing from the last version I did. Plus, I thought of a lot more edge cases. And since the only way I can get this stuff out of my head is to put it on the Interwebs, here it is!

As before, click for a bigger version. A much, much bigger version, that will pulverize your bandwidth the way Chuck Norris pulverizes your pelvis. Or something. I don't know.

I like the concept a lot but I'd recommend rounding the corners of the regions so that it's clearer what's a corner and what's an intersection. You could experiment with adding subtle lines to the region's edges as well as rounding the corners to further clear it up. Or, you could try thick, solid-colored lines on the edges, with very subtle pastel-ish versions of those colors for the interiors. Some of the regions are also needlessly complex in their shapes (eg you don't need the top right corner of don't ask don't tell to be clipped out).

I don't mean to be critical, but I'd love to see the content pop out more easily.

The rounded corners is a most excellent idea. The next revision will have that; it does make the regions easier to see (and it looks better too).

I'm experimenting with borders on the areas; it's tough to do that without the map looking more cluttered than it already is.
