I guess there should be seperate articles on São Tomé Island and Príncipe Island as well. And perhaps an reference to the Island of Annobón, Equatorial Guinea since they all belong to the same archipelago.
Can anyone provide a dettailed topografic map of the main island. I know it excists
How do you pronounce the name? Say'oh Toh'may? Sah'eh teh'may?
- São is pronounced like "sou" in the word "sound", and Tomé is toh-MAY, rather like Marisa Tomei's last name. — Ливай | ☺ 02:15, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Including the Vatican? JDAWiseman 16:20, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
In my ongoing efforts to try to include every country on the planet included in the scope of a WikiProject, I have proposed a new project on Middle Africa at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals#Middle Africa whose scope would include Sao Tome and Principe. Any interested parties are more than welcome to add their names there, so we can see if there is enough interest to start such a project. Thank you for your attention.

Islam in São Tomé and Príncipe
I propose that the contents of Islam in São Tomé and Príncipe be incorporated with the São Tomé and Príncipe article. The information in the article totals one paragraph, so I deem the article a bit redundant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:54, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Removed possible vandalism
I'm calling this "possible vandalism." I found the following unsourced sentence at the end of the article:
- São Tomé and Príncipe is a major contributor of internet traffic to the weblog of New York Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes - between 500 and 999 visits a day!! Phil Hughes' weblog
I'm hesitant to call it outright vandalism because it may well be true and may well have been posted by a well-meaning individual, but it doesn't seem notable and isn't sourced. I'm putting it here for safekeeping. If we want to include it, we'll need to demonstrate its notability and give it a source other than Phil Hughes's blog (in accordance with no original research). —CKA3KA (Skazka) (talk) 20:02, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
São Tomé & Príncipe - former no. 1 cocoa producer?
It has been suggested to me (IFAD personal communication) that São Tomé and Príncipe (STP) was once the world's largest cocoa producer—1930s, maybe around 30,000 tonnes/year. Can anyone confirm this or advise a reference to global or STP historical cocoa production? Many thanks—GRM (talk) 09:23, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
Education in São Tomé and Príncipe
- Done Merge completed. I have redirected the other page to the Education section here. Amit ► 14:21, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
- As to the IBB facility on São Tomé: I saw it with my own eyes. I have several photos on which the antennas do appear; I have to revise the photos though if there is one which shows the entry with the sign identifying the site as belonging to the International Broadcasting Bureau.
- As to the Cuban medical team: the Cuban Ambassador to Angola and São Tomé (Pedro Ross Leal) told me so, and I also met in person the medical workers themselves.
I happend to be in São Tomé on the occasion of the "tomada de posse" of Manuel Pinto da Costa.
- The relay transmitting site on São Tomé is mentioned on this Web page of the IBB, and here and here one can find solicitations for building and security services for the São Tomé IBB station by the "Federal Business Opportunities" web page of the US government. Source enough? --L.Willms (talk) 22:05, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
IBB/VoA relay station
The geo coordinates given in the WRTH point to a wrong place, somewhere to the west of São Tomé in the ocean. The station is actually located here (shown on Google Maps). Google Earth points to a photo of the site, but I can't find a way to actually show the image. That worked in earlier times, but with my PC no longer... --L.Willms (talk) 10:38, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
Time of photograph
Why didn't anyone think of checking the EXIF data of the photograph, which is plainly visible? It says very clearly that the picture was taken on 15 May 2003, at 10:58. JIP | Talk 09:35, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
