Welcome to Asherah! This is a future city, built in the desert. Most temperate regions will be urbanized but the desert will provide a lot of free space. The soil is fertile but dry, so advanced irrigation will be needed. Public transport will play a major role in Asherah – mainly underground because of the heat. The required energy will be generated by wind or sun... and the desert turns green (=
... quoth the raven NEVERMORE.

Green Star is a future city in which things are produced locally as much as possible. Cycling and walking replace cars as a primary mode of transportaion, food is grown among the city's many leisure zones and parks and paths bring nature into the city by weaving among trees, gardens, lakes and rivers. Wind and solar energy also reduce grid consumption and electrical maintenance by one third.

You need to upload it to an external site like Photobucket or Imageshack. Then place a link to it in your post, highlight it and click on the "Img" button to add an image tag.

Hope this helps.

<Edit> This was intended more as a joke, but people took it seriously which made me look like a grouch. Sorry.

I don't think you need to have a facebook account. I think the admins are going to create one for you, and friends don't matter either. It's whoever gets the most "likes".
