Belarus regions

I want to create a challenge for regions in Belarus. I have encountered the problem that Project-GC has only 6 regions defined for Belarus, but in fact the capital city of Minsk is considered the seventh region.

see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regions_of_Belarus

We will look into upgrading the polygon data for Belarus. Our data is an extract from OpenStreetMap in 2017, at that time it only had 6 regions, at least in OSM. I can see that it has 7 now, so it should be a fairly easy update for us.

OSM might actually have been correct back in 2017. Two of the regions are both named "Minsk" in English, so Project-GC has merged them. We will rename the bigger one in our new import.
The data is now updated, it might take up to 6 hours before it's visible everywhere.
THX  !!!! For me is it visible
It's not certain that it is for a challenge checker yet. Those are using another database cluster, with some delay of replication. A full sync is made every 4th hour.
Not a problem. Now I have a command from the reviewer to reduce the challenge difficulty.
