Why is the globe image on top right doesn't include Papua?
Western half of the island of Papua belongs to Indonesia, which, according to the image is part of Asia
Has someone checked the population densities?
(>.<)The population density for Russia is incorrect. It should be 8.3 given the numbers included in the table. This would also bring it into agreement with the global geography entry which lists a population density for Russia of 8.3. I haven't had a chance to check the other numbers, someone probably ought to.
I HOPE THAT changes will be made with true evidence. MY god bless Nepal. — Preceding signed comment added by Blackhu20 (talk • contribs) 05:46, 6 August 2013 (UTC +1:00:
Africa Most Ethnically/Culturally Diverse Continent, Not Asia
This edit request has been answered. Set the |answered= or |ans= parameter to no to reactivate your request.
Please remove " In contrast to Europe, Asia is the largest and most culturally diverse of the continents in the seven-continent system." under the subheading "Ongoing definition", as this is incorrect.
Africa is the most diverse continent on Earth, not Asia as is stated in this article.
Partly done: You're right, and the source doesn't say what the sentence said. Rather than remove it, I've changed it to "Asia is larger and more culturally diverse than Europe", which is all that the source says. Thanks. --Stfg (talk) 09:44, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
The section on 'Economy' makes the following statement, "India had the world's largest economy during 0 BCE and 1000 BCE." This is problemmatic for a number of reasons:- (1) there is no 0 BC / BCE; (2) it's unclear whether the statement refers to two different years, or the two end-points of a 1,000 year period; (3) if the latter, it's conventional to refer to time moving forwards (from an earlier point to a later point). 22.214.171.124 (talk) 06:17, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
China had the most advanced economy thru recorded history is not true! It's a claim not supported by historians and should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:05, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
In the next to last sentence of the second paragraph of the section "Etymology," there is the following: "Roman civilization Hellenized extensively." I would suggest rewriting it as, "Roman civilization was extensively Hellenized," assuming that's what the original writer meant. (Other people can argue about the placement of the adverb.)188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:39, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
