If you think that's funny, wait until you see that VCF has Australia/NZ/Pacific non-existent, we are apparently lumped under: "Asia".
That's like having a locality for the USA as just 'The Americas'.
I'm in a country the size of the United States, and a continent in its own right. That's why we, New Zealand and thousands of Pacific Islands and territories are regarded as Oceania.
I contacted the VCF admins with an Oceania region hierarchy suggestion not long after they were set up, and never heard back.
I suppose the admins are vintage computer people foremost, with knowledge about world geography not a requirement. It might be a trivial lack of oversight on VCF's part but I can't help feeling a trifle insulted, sadly.
Changes have been made. Germany has been added to “Northern Europe,” the UK has moved to “Western Europe,” “Spance” has been corrected to “Spain,”, and Oceania has been added with sub-regions “Australia” and ”New Zealand.”
I hadn’t seen any requests for changes, before, so not sure where those were made.
Is there anything else that folks would like? “All of Asia” is a very large region, as is “All of Africa,” but we haven’t seen any requests for sub-regions there.
Hmm... here in Germany I feel more west than north... Even if it's quite cold here in winter... And even if our government is so cold about shipping some Leos to Ukraine I don't feel that northern coldness. They speek german in Austria and biggest part of Swizerland, but we are not with them in this forum now.
Amercians and geography... Did you know, my grandpa used to run a hotel in "West Germany" and often he used to have american guests. These american guests brought often their own butter from US as they were afraid that they won't had some for breakfast...
