Error in template[edit]

The |suffix= flag is not working. --Jeremy ( Blah blah...) 06:25, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Georgia dab needed[edit]

The template links to Georgia, which is a disambiguation page. It should link to Georgia (country). DuncanHill (talk) 01:36, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

It's OK - I worked out how to fix it. DuncanHill (talk) 02:02, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Centralised discussion[edit]

A discussion is taking place here on how best to incorporate unrecognised states into a navigation template listing sovereign states and other entities. Some editors have suggested that including such states at all is pushing an imbalanced point of view. Others have made the same argument for not including them. Various conciliatory methods have been proposed, but have not acheived consensus. Editors should note that the outcome of this discussion will most likely have implications on this template aswell. For more information, please have a look at this casefile, or see the before-mentioned discussion page. Night w (talk) 04:20, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Talk:Western Asia[edit]

See discussion Talk:Western Asia#Middle East Watti Renew (talk) 16:45, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

I will change the Template name from West Asia to Middle East since it used in regard to energy (above) and also humans rights in the three following references. Note: These organisations are international. If you need the other name for other purposes, there is no conflict to have two separate templates.
* Amnesty International Report 2011 and Human Rights Watch World Report 2011 both use name Middle East, but not West Asia. Also Transparency International (2011) p. 113: Regionally, the largest share of proved oil reserves is in the Middle East (754 billion barrels, constituting 51 per cent of global reserves including oil sands and 57 per cent excluding them).2011 report on oil and gas companies.

Merge with Countries of Western Asia[edit]

I noticed that this template was created in 2007, while it is identical to the Template:Countries of Western Asia created in 2004. I think we should merge them to reduce redundancy.Greyshark09 (talk) 06:11, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Topic templates are not the same as templates just listing countries. They are designed to be modified, so a group of similar pages can be linked to, such as the literature of every West Asian country. CMD (talk) 02:46, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
