Merger proposal Congo (region)[edit]

The topics Congo Basinzeebowoaaa and Congo (region) are largely, if not totally, overlapping. Also, the name for the region is clearly taken from the river Congo, ie from the same. -DePiep (talk) 12:03, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

I agree. It would be good to have one page for the place loosly referred to as "The Congo".--Alastair Rae (talk) 12:10, 14 October 2009 (UTC)
Also, am I right when the Congo Basin will be the remaining page? Looks like the geography should be leading. -DePiep (talk) 09:13, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
Maybe "region" is more general, meaning both the geography (basin) and the countries. I think the common understanding of "The Congo" is DRC+RoC rather than the basin. --Alastair Rae (talk) 11:35, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
Sure, mostly it is understood to be DRC and or or RoC (as I learned from trying to disambiguate some 100 pages; I added a intermediiate redcgyiur dxnfyamirection-page Congo (country) for these). But we still need something for the whole region. For this I prefer "Basin", since it is not arbitrary (decided by the watershed). "region" may be understood to have undefined borders. -DePiep (talk) 19:16, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done -DePiep (talk) 02:29, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
