Senegal, Cameroon, Uganda, Albania
Why are the protests in Iran showed () but not in Senegal, Cameroon, Uganda or Albania. Someone who knows how to edit this image should change that. Also W-Sahara should be minor (self-immolation). The map is no longer listed on the main site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010%E2%80%932011_Middle_East_and_North_Africa_protests#Overview) as a MENA only map.

- Consensus is that they are not related to this wave of unrest. If you have WP:RS citing otherwise, please discuss at Talk:2010–2011_Middle_East_and_North_Africa_protests. -ZeLonewolf (talk) 02:27, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Eritrea should be added in Green, and the legend updated to reflect that it is an Arabic speaking country. Since Eritrea is related to the Somalis (Djibouti, Somaliland, Somalia) and Red Sea Arabs, it should be highlighted on the map. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 02:34, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
- See Here, Eritrea is not part of MENA (Middle East and North Africa).

The orange color is almost indistinguishable from red
IMO the orange color is too similar to the red. I had to use color picker to find out which explanation the color represents. Maybe we could change the orange color to be a bit brighter? I'd suggest something like
#FFAA00. Thanks! 1exec1 (talk) 21:12, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
- Lets first wait for the protests to be over first, than we might do it with animated, from changaes by days/weeks.

- I my self think we should delete all dupe images, I guess who did it wanted to "black" libya as Uprising, not sure why the main one wasn't updated and new one uploaded.

Perhaps Western Sahara is the most obviously worth giving some color to. The main article makes reference to "riots in Daklah, where at least 100 people were injured"; this would seem to give plenty of justification for classing Western Sahara with Morocco and Mauritania as having seen "minor protests."

- The mixed designation sovereignty dispute/minor protests seems good to me. Thanks. Wareh (talk) 15:55, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
- It's not releted, see the main talk page about other african nations. right now only arabic and Iran nations.

- I made the important countries clickable in the blow-outs (Gaza Strip, West Bank, Bahrain). I will make the others clickable tomorrow or later tonight. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:57, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
- those which have a protests article lets keep, so only need to remove Qatar, UAE and Israel.
- We need to also make Lebanon with color and code it to be clickable as it have an article now.

- no need, Black simply means all the options, started minor, then major, had armed rebellion (not as big as Libya tho), and had governmental changes. so Revolution is good for it, no need to forget that all countries including Egypt is still active.

Why is Somalia not shown as yellow on the map? Somalia is a MENA country (under broad definitions) and has had minor protests. Why are Mauritania, Sudan and Western Sahara listed in yellow but not Somalia? Vis-a-visconti (talk) 03:30, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
- I brought this up on the picture's talk page a week or two ago but no one has replied. Originally it was colored yellow, then it turned orange, and now it is just blank. They had switched from the original map to this new one with the blowups, but unfortunately lost a few key colorings. This is the talk page and it shows the older versions (at different locations) at the top. Ŵïllî§ï$2? (Talk!/Sign) 02:09, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
- There was a discussion on the talk page about which countries to include/exclude. Generally, Somalia's protests have not been linked to the Tunisian-inspired wave of unrest but are rather part of long-standing unrest in the country. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ZeLonewolf (talk • contribs) 05:31, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
Change Libya to black
The "thumb" parameter after the file in the imagemap allows users to see the file page (see here), but it doesn't seem to work on this template, presumably because of something in the Template:Annotated image.
It would be nice if users could click to see the file itself, and the associated image info without having to go into the code to find where it's located. Is there a way to have a link to the whole file on the imagemap, without completely rewriting this template? Thanks, --Quintucket (talk) 18:46, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
- Not with the template it uses now, you mean something like this (bottom right I (info).
- There are some ways that can be coded tho.
– HonorTheKing (talk) 19:33, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
- Sorry, no I didn't mean in the image itself. I suppose it wouldn't be very hard to add it to the image (if I could find myself a program that does svg decently), which is something I hadn't thought of. I could also directly stick the "magnify_clip" image into the caption with a link.
- But I was talking about something like this, with the rectangle boxes (magnify_clip) in the lower corner. That requires only the "thumb" parameter after the file. (Again, see this) But yes, "Template:Annotated_image" seems to have disabled that parameter for some reason. If it's not possible to reenable it, I suppose I might take the issue to that template. (And possibly fix up the image itself as a stopgap measure). But I was hoping there was a simple fix I'd missed. Thanks, --Quintucket (talk) 03:31, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
