Deutsch (Deutschland, Österreich, Westschweiz, Südtirol, usw.)

Category name

Deutsch

Is this top-level category or a subcategory?

Top Level, perhaps second level, if there is a “Local Language” top category.

Description of it’s purpose and which open mapping groups will serve

This will serve people that like to ask questions or discuss general topics in their local language.

Why this new category is needed instead of being hosted as part of the existing ones?

Because forcing english is a barrier and machine translation is nowhere close.

Is this a new space or it’s already existing in other platform(s)? Where?

This is 90% of the German and 20% of the Austrian forum.

What the current volume of messages in the former platform (per week/per month)

No idea: 20/w?

Is there a transition plan for the old platform to this new one? (please link or describe)

The old nation-state forums will be migrated, so it seems; Better they continue here as strictly area based, instead of as language based.

(Optional) A link or list of the category specific guidelines

The community only recently got aware of the possibility of creating their own netiquette. Rest assured, it will not match the site one.

List the usernames of the category moderators

I wager to say, some of the current country/local chapter based forums will participate.
