Feather-core-check-square.svg Territory application approved
Approved, with concern. You seem to not understand that Beginner territories are small, intended as an opportunity to build up mapping experience. They are not for long-term mapping and are considered "non-canon" within the OGF world. You should use this territory to build up experience, and to showcase mapping which you then cite in an application for a proper territory. Beginner territories are withdrawn if there is no real progress, or indeed, lots of progress but an intention to stay put. Thanks/wangi (talk) 09:14, 23 January 2023 (UTC)
