Other Article[edit]

I created the 2006 Belgian Secession Hoax article to document this incident. It seems to me that we don't need two articles describing the same thing. Should I merge this article into mine and redirect this to it? I need someone's advice please. Qwertyca 00:07, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

I think you should merge your article into this one, and redirect here. I suggest doing it that way round because:
  • More articles link to Flemish Secession hoax than 2006 Belgian Secession Hoax.
  • It was Flanders that was supposedly doing the seceding, not Belgium, so the name of this article is perhaps more appropriate.
  • This one has marginally more information, and is perhaps slightly better reviewed as it was created earlier and has had a few more people editing it.

Title[edit]

Bye-bye Belgium is the official name given to the conceptor of the program to the show. Thus, there is no debate over whether or not it should be named otherwise — it should not. We don't call Mona Lisa The Strangely Smiling Lady simply because it is more descriptive. Thierry Caro 20:47, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

The frwp article says that that was the *name* of the show, the codename being "Tout ça (ne nous rendra pas la Belgique)". And somehow or other "Tout ça (ne nous rendra pas le Congo)" isn't mentioned here. Strange. Angus McLellan (Talk) 17:12, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Translation[edit]

I think a translation from french is necessary... I agree for title...

Results[edit]

This edit removed information about the aftermath. It needs proper sourcing, but I'd be sorry to see the information simply disappear. WhatamIdoing (talk) 07:19, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
