This is a project started in december. The concept it simple: Just fill in the area in the world where you live if it hasn't been filled yet. I wish that one day we will fill the entire map, or at least have every area where an /int/ user lives in.
Regarding the UK: after many arguments across many threads, we came to the agreement that the UK will not get special treatment, and will remain as just the 4 countries within it. To sweeten the blow a bit, I gave you Gibraltar, that wasn't on the map for some reason.
Updated with Goias, Kirov, Prague, Moravian-Silesian, East Java and Malopolska
Updated >>52978170 with Gibraltar
Are you sure you don't want English counties?
>Did you make a new thread at some point? I figured only I bothered opening them.
No, I compared your map and the most recent one I had (from the last thread) and filled the missing regions in
Also refined the English county borders, you sure you don't want them?
Saved and removed English counties, and added Jersey and Basco for the Philippines
Added provinces of Taiwan because I'm bored
-Telangana to India
-Space to fill in Lakshadweep
-Alborz province, Iran
-Kiev and Sevastopol
Added Mymensingh and Rangpur to Bangladesh
enough autism for now
Just divide England up into the big areas: Cornwall, Wessex, London, the Home Counties, the West Midlands, East Anglia, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Northumbria, the Isle of Man, the Isle of Wight. Not difficult.
Final touch of autism
Added provinces for Timor-Leste and fixed its borders
Got you covered Mehmet
Isle of Man is already separate.
Sombor, Zapadno Bački okrug, Vojvodina, Srbija
That, along with the fact that we are still missing two major American provinces, is my biggest disappointment.
My biggest positive surprises were the fact that that capitals weren't the only areas to be filled, the two Nepalese, the Mongolian, and the Benis^2
I assume it's the highest level divisions within a country. So the UK would be divided into its 4 constituent countries while Ireland would be divided into provinces/regions/whatever they call them.
>We're just missing Delaware now.
Delaware and DC*
For the MILLIONTH time: Because Ireland is a sovereign state, and England, Scotland, Wales, and NI aren't. This map shows the first level of provincial division in every country. If we further divide the UK, we might as well do the same for the USA, for AUstralia, and Mexico, for Canada, for Germany, for France, for Russia, for China, and pretty much for every country, and then we just go endlessly in this stupid argument.
Can someone add the big island of hawaii? I'm trying to fill it in one my phone and the app I'm using keeps compressing it and making the whole thing look like shit. I'm also too lazy to go turn on mein laptop.
Right, didn't notice those.
Added Kidal for Mali, and Niamey for Niger on the map.
Could have sworn Bourgogne had been added, but meh.
Quite several people have coloured up to three provinces
>If we further divide the UK, we might as well do the same for...
No you don't, asshole. You ever hear of practicality? Australia and the UK look like shit because you couldn't just make an exception. Jesus Christ, you're not writing lines of code, just do what looks the most interesting.
>reactionary Americans invade the thread
I have a layer that adds English provinces but if you read the comments you'll know why not.
Well, I guess that's fine then.
I think the most pressing issue now is what to do regarding Serbia, since >>52980680 raises a valid point. According to this wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statistical_regions_of_Serbia, I think a 5 level division would be accurate.
I look at this issue like this:
No matter what I do, people will complain. When England is a singular entity, people complain that I am being mean to the UK, not fair, and other subjective arguments. When England was divided in the previous thread as a test, I got even more complaints, and most of them were ration arguments.
Basically, that that this map is based on the highest level of division, and there is no real reason to make an excetion for the UK. The other angry American on the other side of the argument wrote it better in previous threads.
I split Kavango into Kavango East and West in Namibia.
Go cry to your mom lad
>Regarding the UK: after many arguments across many threads, we came to the agreement that the UK will not get special treatment, and will remain as just the 4 countries within it.
But it IS getting special treatment. As someone else said these are supposed to be the NUTS-1 regions and those clearly arent the UKs NUTS-1 regions
Added North Kalimantan for Indonesia on the map
Added, what are you doing in Russia?
ei eu nao to no computador, alguem preenche paraiba ai por favor, obrigado.
Not in pc right now, can someone fillin Paraiba - Brasil? It's the little state to the upper east coast, the uppest one
Potential split of Serbia. Thoughts?
I'll give you a deal: make a division map for ALL of the UK (someone made one just for England, >>52980877, make one for Wales, Scotland, and NI), and then I'll make another poll. I guess you can argue that the previous one was problematic since the site crashed in the middle of it.
Problem with UK is that there are different second-level divisions (see >>52981368). If we follow ceremonial counties in England Huntingdonshire, Westmorland, Middlesex etc would be missed out. If we follow historical counties there wouldn't be Greater London, Greater Manchester, West Midlands, etc.
Ceremonial means... current. Historical isn't in use, but using ceremonial means I'd have to use the admin divisions for Wales and Scotland which leaves the regions fighting over pixels.
But meh, I'm going with http://www.britain-visitor.com/images/content_images/counties-large.gif unless there's a good argument against that.
I'll admit I'm not entirely sure what is the origin of the map. Reverse google image search leads me to different images.
If it fits on the image, then this looks the best we can get.
God, why can't you brits just break up your union already?
Current, shitty map. I've filled in Wales and NI, but Scotland is yet to be completed.
Well wherever it came from theyve done a weird job. By the way, theres three different ways to represent the english counties; ceremonial, administrative and historical. Either ceremonial or administrative would be fine
Actually ceremonial would be the best, because administrative would include a lot of cities as seperate and would create too many places.
Here's the current map. I'm not using >>52981902 until the poll's done or something.
Here. Didn't notice Estado was fused with Pueblo before, so thanks for that I guess?
>Those regions of Greenland
not correct anymore, they only have 4 muncipalities
Here is the poll.
Should I make another poll regarding Serbia, since no one responded?
Also, I am considering reducing Greenland to pic related, since it has been often brought up and is a good point.
Best silesia added
I'm surprised it hasn't been added yet, there's multiple Anons from here.
Greenland's already divided that way, although they're split by dotted lines.
When you use the paintbucket on Greenland, you'll see there's just those distinct regions.
Funny, I could have sworn Dolnoslaskie had been added earlier.
Added Pomorskie or whatever that is
As well as >>52982551
Half the thread being full of shitposts about the subject isn't fun. That's why I want to settle this with a poll, so people can at least not say it's some sort of personal agenda against or for the UK.
It sort of is, but only for the preservation of the wild life, the only people that navigate through the ice is a few military guys on dog sleds.
OP could merge it with the area south of it as he should with sahara.
Current map. Added Islas Baleares, Canakkale and Ludogorie
Filled in Canakkale, and since the three Balearic Islands are a single province, I treated them like Hawaii and filled them in together
Nope, Syddanmark is a region that includes Sonderjylland and Fyn, but geographically speaking, it's not the same. The regions you should have on Denmark should be: Nordjylland, Midtjylland, Sonderjylland, Fyn, Sjælland and Bornholm.
I think we're using admin divisions instead of geographical divisions here, so I'm sticking with the 5 regions of Denmark in pic related I guess.
I mean the same is done for the Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Hawaii, etc, so I think Denmark should be treated the same
Fair enough, will be interesting to see this map in the future, it just have to be administrated carefully. Only problem it will have is the validity with the Asian and African regions.
You can't just do that, the point of this map is too get all the regions painted, will probably never happen, but you can't just cheat. Of course you could impose as one from the Southern regions, but that would be cheating.
The thing is, it's the same problem as the UK more or less, with a sovereign state being divided into few "subcountries", above provinces.
I think that if the strawpoll ends with the further dividing of the UK (as it seems it will), Serbia will be left as is, and if not, then I will use my fixed version.
As I said before, I am a naive faggot, so I will believe people say.
If we will start getting an unreasonable amount of posters claiming such things, then maybe we will be stricter.
Current map, UK is further divided since there's been more than 20 votes - unless that changes.
I remember the coloured-in counties from the last time we did that.
If there is actually a missing part in the Netherlands and my eyes aren't just fucking with me I'm pretty sure that's where I'm currently living. So I filled it in.
Well, from the poll it seems that we can generally agree on dividing the UK. Unless that other angry American from the other thread is actually Obama and he will cut aid to my country unless I change it back, we will stay this way.
Kind of surprising, isn't it?
Also, I added in Liechtenstein and the Vatican
Kurwa! Poland is nearly complete, too.
...ok, I attempted doing this, but the new regions don't seem to even be based on the ones used in the map. I guess I'll have to rely on based Singapore to help me again
To answer your question, no, but that brings up another idea I had: Filling in (in a different color) every place you have been in.
To explain it, we will keep filling in places we live in in red, but use another color, lets say pink, to fill in every province in the world you have been in. Obviously, red will take precedent. This will evolve the project into showing, more or less, every place on earth that had an /int/ user at some point. The problem with this, and this is a major problem, is that editing this will be really difficult and annoying, especially at the start. Syncing up all these maps will be a headache when every poster adds dozens of provinces.
Maybe we can consider this in a few months, when we will run out of new posters. For now, it's just a thought.
I just added all of the Ionian Islands
This is objectively incorrect (I don't even know what point you're trying to make regarding "separatists", but it doesn't even matter where OP's thing is concerned), and I'm autistically pleased to hear OP's decision.
Every country or sovereign state (of which the UK, the USA and Japan are examples), whatever its form of government, has some sort of primary subdivisions which partition the physical country both physically and politically. Human geography being what it is, these partitions also frequently reflect language and cultural differences.
There is no rule anywhere that says that the partitions must have such-and-such parity. Just because California has 40 million people to Delaware's 600,000, you don't see me insisting that California be split into its counties. That's literally what this is.
The controversy has really just been a bunch of English who are upset that their part of the country That Isn't London isn't being differentiated, but drilling down to the counties would in fact amount to special treatment for England, as OP correctly pointed out. The UK is not England. Just because the primary subdivisions of that sovereign state are themselves referred to as "countries" doesn't make them not-what-they-are, which is: the primary political subdivisions of a sovereign state.
Once again, OP and Singapore-kun can do what they want, (and actually this makes me want to learn the counties of England now!), but since they do seem to want to keep consistent, leaving England undifferentiated is the correct thing to do with the master map.
But this is all moot since it's a bunch of autism and there will always be a supplement map somewhere I bet. :^)
>I'm autistically pleased to hear OP's decision.
err... about that...
Sorry, Amerifriend. In principle I agree with you, since the state is the UK, though I guess I feel less strongly about the matter. The poll decided the split further, and we will leave it at that.
>No Indonesian filled capital city Jakarta yet
What the fuck, it's the most populous city in the country.
squeaky wheel gets the grease. And the Bingy-whingy-Bong is a very, very squeaky wheel indeed.
(I expected a reneg since all this is just a game after all, but I'm still in the right on this, and I know that you know it, Israel-anon.)
>Every country or sovereign state (of which the UK, the USA and Japan are examples), whatever its form of government, has some sort of primary subdivisions which partition the physical country both physically and politically. Human geography being what it is, these partitions also frequently reflect language and cultural differences.
England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland arent the primary subdivisions you fucking burger
Yes, they are so. You require being told about your own country.
For suppose that we accept the language at the link, insisting (a bit disingenuously) that the UK's countries don't fit into the neat administrative boxes of much of the rest of the world, as you would have it. As if no other nations ever were founded collectively by a group of smaller entities.
Then why talk of England/Scotland/Wales/NI at all? Each has a defined physical territory, a population, and each manages its own affairs a bit differently, at levels below that of the sovereign state in question. Not unlike... a province, or a state! It is also telling that the /second sentence/ of the above article clarifies, before going into any details, "oh yes by the way, the UK is first of all divided into these four bits." So the language of the article is tortured in the sense that it must make clear that these four /are indeed/ the top-level bits, without expressly naming them as what they really are - first order administrative divisions, preceding the counties et al.
The point is that /there is no meaningful or coherent sense in which the UK's countries are /not/ its first-order, primary subdivisions/.
Updated with new Moroccan regions. Fes-Meknes and Souss-Massa coloured in.
I just wanted to point out that even though the flag shows Albania,I'm actually from Kosovo and obviously the original flag wont show because of the now infamous Kosovo/Serbia dispute.
Just to clarify.
oh no wait it is back
i literally spent ages separating the UK into counties. updated again
>Not unlike... a province, or a state!
Just because something is similar to something else doesn't mean it IS something else.
England, Scotland and NI are separate nations. I'd argue Wales is too, although officially it's a principality.
Quite right, which is exactly why a neutral phrase such as the one employed throughout wiki, "first-order administrative division", is called for to characterize those same objects for each sovereign state. /Because everyone does their stuff just a little bit differently, and everyone thinks they're special./ They are styled differently (coUNTIEs, coUNTRIEs, states, provinces, governates, regions, prefectures), but they always amount to the same thing: the largest-tier partitioned regions of a given sovereign state which variously manage their affairs differently, have distinct cultures, and possibly even different languages or dialects.
Nor is the notion of a (sovereign) state composed of constituent countries even unique to the UK. This is also the case with Denmark, the Netherlands, and NZ. You can scoff but the point is that the UK is not even unique in this regard.
When any of Scotland, England, NI or Wales has their own separate UN seat or are otherwise broadly recognized as really, truly separate sovereign states who conduct themselves fully independently of each other, then we can legitimately talk about their counties/lieutenancies etc instead as "first order divisions", but not before. Which is why this continued willful confusion of "countries" in the colloquial sense, and in the sense of sovereign states, is incorrect if the goal is to actually be consistent.
But as I keep saying the Israeli and Singaporean can run the game how they want, but it /is/ inconsistent.
Okay cool, but Scotland, England, Wales and NI are not the first division of the UK.
Because that implies the UK is a singular entity, which it is not.
Think of the US prior to the Civil War, it's a combination of nations under a single head, the monarch.
With all the corrections I've done this is it
Holy shit, how long has this been going on? I remember adding myself in as Ohio sometime in June with different people, t.b.h. This is quite some dedication.
The French regions are outdated. There's only 13 regions since the new year.
>no Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Armenia
>no Algeria, Tunisia, or Egypt
>no Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, or Guangzhou
Literally what happens in Tierra del Fuego
