South Ossetia is included in the Wikipedia CD Selection, see South Ossetia at Schools Wikipedia. Please maintain high quality standards; if you are an established editor your last version in the article history may be used so please don't leave the article with unresolved issues, and make an extra effort to include free images, because non-free images cannot be used on the DVDs.
Did South Ossetia declare independence on November 28, 1991, as the main Wikipedia article on the country claims, or on September 20, 1990, as is frequently cited in scholarly articles and in this Wikipedia article Georgian-Ossetian_conflict#Origins_of_the_Conflict? It is also worth noting that September 20 appears to be the day chosen by the South Ossetian state as its independence day.
I greatly expanded the "Geography" section of this Wikipedia page to include more info on South Ossetia's rough geography & climate. Feel free to edit as need be, since I'm still new at this kind of thing. I also added a redirect for "Climate of South Ossetia" to this new, expanded section of the article.

Can anyone verify the neutral points of view in the Russian/Georgian/Ossetian(?) articles? Particularly the Georgian article, which I imagine draws from a pretty narrow pool of contributors... Interlaker (talk) 13:57, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
There is no mention of how South Ossetia is broken down into administrative divisions, which would be normal for articles about both countries and regions on Wikipedia. There are, presumably, two systems. A hypothetical Georgian system (seeing as how Georgia does not exercise control over the area), and a de facto South Ossetian one. Presumably, municipalities still exist. Skinsmoke (talk) 14:14, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
