There have been a number of request to break the UK out of the European region.
While this would not be hard to do, there is a downside in that buyers in the EU will not by default see UK animals, unless they switch to the UK region - just like with all the current regions. There is currently no cross-region advertising, and this won’t likely be added in the near future (that is a different topic).
On the positive side, if there is really very little UK/EU exportation, this could simplify things. However @balls2u (Gavin Adkins) says there will still be importing and exporting, so he recommends just renaming the region. Would this address the concerns raised?
What are those concerns? That’s why I’m opening this post, to understand what the real issue is, if not the import/export one. The Europe region is somewhat “EU” (e.g., the flag) and somewhat just representing the European continent. We could try to update it to be more of the latter, little things like the EU flag. But I don’t know what symbol would represent Europe better.
So this topic is for collecting feedback especially from sellers in the UK. Do you still want the UK broken out given the above behavior – Why or why not?
