Problems with the Introduction
As far as I can tell, most of the introduction to this article is just copy-pasted directly from the U.S. Library of Congress. http://www.country-data.com/cgi-bin/query/r-12108.html It'll probably need a lot of trimming. --OmgItsTheSmartGuy (talk) 15:21, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok I just decided to move a majority of the introduction into its own "Landform Regions" section. Obviously, a majority of it is still copy-pasted material, but at least the organization of this article is now slightly less bizarre. --OmgItsTheSmartGuy (talk) 15:43, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I've merged the Central Plateau and Landform Regions sections together. This makes the article noticeably shorter, but that's mostly because most of the info in this article was originally redundant. However, I left out some of the information in the old Central Plateau section where the info seemed or rather trivial or obscure (namely: "Ghaap Plateau" and "Limpopo Highlands"). --OmgItsTheSmartGuy (talk) 16:42, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
