How much of Russia on a scratch map?
My own rules for how much to scratch off depends on the size of the country. For most cases, if I've been to even one place in a country (for a reasonable amount of time), I will scratch off the whole country. However, this doesn't apply to the 10 largest countries in the world. In those cases, I will scratch off the largest sub-unit in a country. For instance, if I've visited the US, I will scratch off the state I was in, rather than the whole US.
But for Russia, there isn't really a clear delineation of areas. There are so many different kinds of sub-units: federal subjects, administrative divisions, municipal divisions, federal districts, economic regions, and military districts. So, my question is: where would you draw the line within Russia? Or do you simply scratch off the whole of Russia?

There are 85 "Subjects" of the Russian Federation, there is no reason to go below that level.
Thank you for your post, however the place names are not controlled by Windy.
Please see the following posts about how the map data for Windy is sourced and displayed from www.openstreetmap.org:
Please also note: For every language, a different place name label can be displayed, so please choose your correct language and data display.
Further discussion of place name and language issues or disputes should be directed to the OpenStreetMap Forum here: https://forum.openstreetmap.org/index.php > scroll down & select > users: (the relevant country for your dispute and/or question)
In the case of a political dispute please leave such topics out of the Windy forum and instead focus on the discussion of weather.
Thank you :)

(He's not talking about changing names or boundary disputes. He's talking about marking off subdivisions of countries he has visited. A general question.)
