I'm probably more alone now than ever with this opinion, but I still believe that big adjustments can't be ruled out for OC and South America. As my previous posts put it – in a year when it is likely that OC and South America will have selectees that miss out it, the mathematically optimal way to achieve perfectly fair distribution between regions is to only allocate visas to those two regions in the last 1/12 of the available time because they contribute less than 1/12 of the total number of selectees. e.g. assess the demand that exists in the much larger regions by processing those larger regions first. OC and South America should be allocated visas only at the very last practical moment, and that moment has not yet arrived. I only feel like contributing this opinion because I don't think it's time yet for people in OC and South America to despair. OC, South America and North America could all be sitting on zero until that very last practical moment for allocation and that would still make mathematical sense in a particular year like this one when most regions will miss out (I believe they're not at zero because of a balance between doing it correct mathematically and being practical, and that means the current numbers for those regions should not even for one iota be read into). These stalled numbers were only released because the visa bulletin needed to come out on its regular schedule to inform about the other non-DV visa categories. So, my call is that between now and the actual September bulletin OC and South America will see large adjustments, Africa possibly none (it is the largest region and therefore the first that should have had its demand assessed when a year happens like this one), and I don't know about the other regions... maybe small adjustments. My opinion is possibly biased by the fact I'm OC...19XX.
