Validity[edit]

I question the validity of this article series template. The scope of it is purely Scandinavistic, buth without any limitations. The template is also bound to overlap with anything concerning any of the three Scandinavian countries, and moreover, it does not take in consideration the idea of the inclusion of the Nordic countries.

Royal League as part of the Scandinavia-series[edit]

Does Royal League fit into the series? No doubt about it's Scandinavian relations, but the template seems more history-related to me. Note: It doesn't even link to the four countries, just the history of them. /AB-me (chit-chat) 17:39, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

Sweden-Finland[edit]

How can the purely modern, theoretical definition "Sweden-Finland" be listed under "Political entities"? Gabagool (talk) 15:43, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

It shouldn't. The template needs cleanup as it has spread out to include areas that are not properly part of Scandinavia.--Berig (talk) 11:19, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Should the image be changed?[edit]

The cloud cover is obstructing one third of Scandinavia. I feel this is a problem, there is an image without cloud cover I feel would be more appropriate:

Styling[edit]

This template currently sticks out like a sore thumb on transcluded articles due to the brown background colour. A couple of editors have tried inverting the colour scheme to alleviate this only to be summarily reverted. Does this template really need to be dark brown? Why? Chris Cunningham (user:thumperward) - talk 13:02, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

I've now changed the colours of the template to white/pale blue. Peter (talk) 12:56, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Please include an article about Scandinavian culture[edit]

I think it would be a good idea to include a whole article about Scandinavian culture. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.47.80.140 (talk) 18:54, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
