[#6184]

Since we don't really use the "official" FSA regions for anything, I'm interested in the community's thoughts to realign the regions to match the railway zones as shown on OGF:Federal States/Railways/Companies, which were overwhelmingly approved by the community as part of the railway discussions earlier this summer. Anyone feel strongly one way or the other?

Ok with this decision, but it should probably be decided by a FSA community vote

This seems like a good proposal. We could probably do without a vote if there is broad consensus, but either way can ultimately work.

I like the proposal. I'm not sure if we will need a vote though.

The only thing the regions really tie into is the ogf:id ranges. I've been think for a while to get rid of the admin_level=3 relations.

Well that would also work. The regions don't really serve administrative purpose like states, counties, and more are cultural/historic agrupations that may or may not be limited by actual state boundaries like the current regions are

Agreed, getting rid of the regions entirely sounds like a pretty decent idea.

I originally created the regions to give guidance to myself and isleƱo during the "design" phase of FSA, and perhaps I envisioned them as maybe serving some role in the "meta" administration of the FSA. That hasn't occurred. I see no need to retain them. Delete or realign as you wish.

It would be nice to see the railway regions on the map, but I'm fine with either removing or altering the current ones.

As Luciano: Delete them (or let it be)

The regional relations have now been deleted.

Back to the original question - it seems reasonable, although not as a relation on the map itself.
