What is a "country"?[edit]

I dispute many of the table entries, as they are not "countries". For example, French Guiana, Martinque, Guadeloupe and Réunion are integral parts of the French republic; calling them "countries" is akin to calling Alaska and Hawaii countries (and neither of those appear on this list). Similarly, Svalvard and Jan Mayen are integral parts of the Kingdom of Norway, and not classified as territorial possessions. I know that ISO 3166 has unique codes for these places, but that does not make them "countries". This list ought to align with the identical inclusion criteria as the main list of countries we have on this wiki. — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 17:21, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Har Meron[edit]

Har Meron is the highest elevation in Israel, Hermon is completely within Syria and Lebanon. --Supreme Deliciousness (talk) 18:48, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Serbia and Kosovo[edit]

Gjeravica/Deravica is posted as the highest point of both Serbia AND Kosovo, because recognition of Kosovo is still disputed. Fine. Although I think a note at the "Serbia" entry should tell the interested Wikipedians, that the highest point of Serbia proper ist the Midžor: 2,169 m >> see it at the CIA World Factbook Beraldosuperfigo (talk) 19:24, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguations[edit]

In See Also, the link to summit should be to Summit (topography). I can't do it since I'm new here, so could somebody fix that up? Thanks. CarnivorousGnomeCatuse (talk) 19:43, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Done. But I thought that was a change anybody could make--even an IP (that is, not registered) user. Uporządnicki (talk) 18:17, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
