I think it's not being a major river, but more being the main river for a basin. For Mesopotamia and the Chao-Praya river, it's less clear on where it originates and where the exact headwaters are, so they got more than one river covering it vs the Ganges and Bhramatapura rivers, which one is clearly the main river.
Seems the Scientific community is less certain it should be one system; " The Ganges River Basin is sometimes considered part of a larger river basin consisting of the nearby Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers. Known as the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna (GBM) River Basin, it is one of the largest river systems in the world." [https://education.nationalgeographic.org/resource/ganges-river-basin]
It's described as a Transboundary River system when considered together, so both are equally valid as the main river

In your opinions', where should the Basin extended to, the red, the orange, or the green?

Legally, the border between the Río de la Plata and the Atlantic Ocean is a straight line between Punta Rasa in Argentina and Punta del Este in Uruguay.
Legally, it's closer to the red line, but I'd personally split off the Salado River at minimum.

On the other hand, I would personally prefer that estuaries be included in the river basin. Here's my proposal regarding the Humber and the Shannon. Grey lines are the borders between the river and the estuary. Also included is the River Hull.

I don't think we need to separate the estuaries from the rivers themselves. I can just add them in more or less (I honestly need to just edit them in, so thank you for that)

Another semi-minor patch. Admittedly, I'm not 100% sure if I should separate the Meuse/Maas from the Rhine, but I did it anyways since the Rhine delta is heavily canalized to begin with, and there's only one point where I can't draw a black border which, by the way, is not where the Meuse flows to the Rhine or vice versa. Colour template included.

From upstream to downstream, the five tributaries that saw use of the darker shade are:
Semois
Sambre
Ourthe
Roer
Dommel

Hello everyone, it's been a while since an ultra major patch, but I think letting you guys know the progress helps out a bit every once and a while. I've worked on quite a bit, but if you couldn't already tell I've been extremely disorganized in what I'm doing at a given time. I've definitely been trying to do to much all at once while also dealing with my job, school, and doing other things I like to do, so I have just been trying to cram as much in as I can. I am satisfied with it though, and I really can only go forward so I'll try to narrow my focus a bit. So for that, I've decided to finish up China first and go from there. There are also other minor things I need to add in so I'll also do that as well

The International Hydrographic Organization considers the red line as the Río de la Plata border, according multiple criteria, for example that there is continuous flow of freshwater up to that line, or that only from the red line onwards, the waters get the average salinity of oceans. So that red line would be where the Atlantic propperly begins.

Therefore, my suggestion:
Hard black border at the red line, but also use first level subdivision borders and distinct colours for rivers beyond the green line to show that from that point onwards it's considered an external coastline.
