I'm not sure about the name change to "Eastern Zhou Topics". Many of these States existed during the Western Zhou Dynasty (i.e. before the start of the Spring and Autumn Period in 771 BCE). That means the problem lies in the column headings - maybe it should be split into "Western Zhou" and "Eastern Zhou" with the second subdivided into "Spring and Autumn" and "Warring States" Philg88 (talk) 00:19, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

If this navbox is about the entire Zhou Dynasty, then it should include topics related to the Western Zhou dynasty but not the eastern. BTW, it seems to be talking about the states not topics, so perhaps even the new title is not good enough. Someone's got to expand this navbox to completely cover the Zhou Dynasty.

I changed the title to "Zhou Dynasty" because that would include both Spring and Autumn and Warring States periods. Hanfresco (talk) 23:17, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

State of Tan[edit]

This is a legitimate sate for inclusion in this template but has been removed and should be retained. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 165.12.252.111 (talk) 03:27, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

If you are talking about Tan (Shandong), then it has already been included in the Spring and Autumn section of this template. Tan finished in 684 BC and did not exist during the Warring States Period. Therefore I removed it from the Warring States section of this template. --Pengyanan (talk) 08:31, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
