Edit request on 3 December 2011

It would be good to add on this template Îles des Saintes between Guadeloupe and Martinique. Because it would be more easy for the reader to find and consult the history or the geography of these islands.--Moowgly (talk) 14:29, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Is there any opposition to this request? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:12, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
As Moowgly well knows, there's much opposition to this request. Moowgly is making a campaign of separating Iles des Saintes and a couple of other islands from Guadeloupe, despite the fact they are part of Guadeloupe. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 15:49, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
Request declined for now, pending consensus. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 18:07, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
I just wanna remember to Chipmunkdavis, that Guadeloupe and Martinique are truly part of France and the topic didn't write France but Guadeloupe and martinique. Unfortunatly Guadeloupe and Martinique are in "Dependent territories and other" part. Les Saintes, is a dependency of Guadeloupe wich is a dependency of France and can be include inside this part of the topic thanks to the term "other". And i will justify that it's also because the history of les Saintes is not history of Guadeloupe and is very different of it. And i will explain to Chipmunkdavis that Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin even if they are Overseas collectivity now, and are not included into the General council and regional council of Guadeloupe anymore, are considered always like part of Guadeloupe. The prefect of St-barts and St-martin is dependent of Prefect of Guadeloupe, who gouvernate Guadeloupe St-Barts and St-Martin. The funds of state and french state lies these islands to Guadeloupe too. And i will tell you that i know les Saintes, Marie-Galante, and la Désirade are included into Guadeloupe Department but they are not Guadeloupe but dependencies. Open every books of history and administration of Guadeloupe and you will see every time the word Guadeloupe and dependencies. Chipmunkdavis must learn the difference between an administrative status and a geographical entity. Guadeloupe is not an archipelago, otherwise France is an archipelago, Saint-Martin collectivity with the island of tintamarre and Pinel is an archipelago. Saint-Barthélemy is an island and an archipelago for its administrative status including Fourchue island, Terre-de-Haut commune is an archipelago and Terre-de-Haut Island an island also. it's absurd. We can not qualify of archipelago (geographic term) an administrative organisation. it is nonsence. None archipelago in the world have a name in the singular but a name in the plurial ex: Antilles, Philippines, (Poly)nesia (poly=grec=plural), seychelles, Bahamas, Les Saintes, Grenadines, Canaries, Açores, Bermudas,..... Guadeloupe is an island with dependencies not an archipelago . France state never qualifies Guadeloupe as an archipelago but an island and dependencies. So think of it --Moowgly (talk) 15:57, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
The term dependencies as used by many Caribbean territories is not the same as Dependent territory. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 17:06, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
You are also doing this at Template:Countries and territories of the Caribbean and Template:Countries of North America‎. These are just part of Guadeloupe. If we add these we also have to add Antigua and Barbuda (Barbuda). Wouldn't that be excessive? Rennell435 (talk) 01:09, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Edit request

When this template is called by a "Football in ..." article, the entry for the United States links to a disambiguation page: Football in the United States. Instead it should link to Soccer in the United States. (Every other link on the template relates to this sort of football.) Bazonka (talk) 20:03, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure that's possible with this generalised template. If this template was called "Soccer in..." then all the links would work (through lots of redirect admittedly). Chipmunkdavis (talk) 01:50, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Football in the United States is listed at WP:DPL, so it should really be addressed. But yes, I knew this wouldn't be an easy one, but perhaps some clever coder can add something into the template to address this peculiarity. Of course it would be much easier if the Yanks just started calling the sport by its proper name :) Bazonka (talk) 18:57, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps someone should create Template:Football in North America, subst this template, and alter. TimBentley (talk) 22:07, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

I've changed all "Football in ..." links to this template to "Association football in ...". All links now work, although some of them only via redirects. Bazonka (talk) 19:35, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Mark {{edit protected}} done, Bazonka solved the problem in another (better) way. Anomie 19:41, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 11 May 2012 (Rail Transport/Barbados)

Suggestion: On the Rail Transport in North America template, someone may want to wikilink Barbados to Transport_in_Barbados#Railway. Textorus (talk) 02:50, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Textorus (talk) 02:50, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done: it's not clear what the "Rail Transport in North America template" is, but it doesn't appear to be this template. {{Transport in North America}}, the closest match I found, does not have a railway-specific section. Please clarify the request. Thanks. Chris Cunningham (user:thumperward) (talk) 09:24, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Edit Request - United States

There is actually an article that encompasses Christmas tree production in the United States, it should probably be titled that but it is titled Christmas tree cultivation in the United States. It should be added to the template. I doubt a lot of these places produce too many Christmas trees. IvoShandor (talk) 08:40, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

This request has to do with the "Christmas tree production in North America" Template. IvoShandor (talk) 08:42, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Nevermind about this. I am building a new, more appropriate article, that will automatically link. IvoShandor (talk) 13:06, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Had this still been "open", I would have pointed out that the way to fix it would have been to create a redirect from Christmas tree production in the United States to Christmas tree cultivation in the United States. Do consider whether it would be better to expand the existing article (and create the redirect) or have separate articles for production and cultivation; I personally am unsure on that issue. Anomie 14:23, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
I think I am going to merge what content I can to the production article and drop anything else in the main Christmas tree cultivation article. I didn't actually create the U.S. cultivation article, but i think it's my fault originally for created a poorly framed article on a related topic in the past. Thanks.IvoShandor (talk) 01:40, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Edit request 17 July 2013

There is a version in the sandbox that will update the "state" parameter to match that in the directions at Template:Navbox#Setup parameters. Please update this navbox, thanks. --Funandtrvl (talk) 20:23, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Done. Thank you! — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 05:02, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 14 January 2014

Please replace the line

|group2 = {{#if:{{{countries_only|}}} | |Dependencies and<br>other territories}}


|group2 = {{#if:{{{countries_only|}}} | |{{longitem|Dependencies and<br/>other territories}}}}

per Template:Americas topic and other similar templates (in Category:Configurable area-topic templates).

Thank you, (talk) 22:24, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
