Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?

subcategory

Description of its purpose and which open mapping groups it will serve

Subcategory for the Russian local community to discuss topics specific to mapping in Russia. It should replace the currently used forum sub-section found at users: Russia / OpenStreetMap Forum

Fancy icon (File:RUOSM logo.svg - OpenStreetMap Wiki).

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

Discuss topics which are specific to Russia.

Is this a new space or does it already exist on other platforms? Where?

It existed before on forum

Current volume of messages on the former platforms, if any (per week/per month)

More than 3 thousand topics have been created. Now they write several messages a day.

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

The transition plan was not discussed. But I wouldn’t want to lose everything, because the forum often discusses the methods and rules of mapping.

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

Old rules: Правила и навигация / users: Russia / OpenStreetMap Forum
