    @PARIKRAMA Any reason why we got UK and France in the "americas" section and not in Europe?

    Because historically this section was US and Europe but then someone put Turkey in it, then it was pointed out that Turkey was mostly (95+%) in the Middle East, and that far more of Russia was in Europe. So rather than just move Turkey to The Middle East they turned this section into the Americas, without moving the threads, so now we have 3 Asia sections and Turkey is apparently on the American continent along with France and Britain and a Europe and Russia section.

    The original sections made far more sense:

    But maybe add some, e.g.

    US & Europe (including Anglosphere, Canada, Australia, New Zealand.)
    Central and South America
    Africa
    China and Asia
    Russia and ex-USSR (excluding EU states).
