I dispute many of the table entries, as they are not "countries". For example, French Guiana, Martinque, Guadeloupe and Réunion are integral parts of the French republic; calling them "countries" is akin to calling Alaska and Hawaii countries (and neither of those appear on this list). Similarly, Svalvard and Jan Mayen are integral parts of the Kingdom of Norway, and not classified as territorial possessions. I know that ISO 3166 has unique codes for these places, but that does not make them "countries". This list ought to align with the identical inclusion criteria as the main list of countries we have on this wiki. — Andrwsc (talk·contribs) 17:21, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Excluding Greenland would mean Denmark, for example, would need to reflect Greenland's figure. So not useful. Denmark does consider Greenland to be a separate country so that is reason to keep Greenland. Nice to have Antarctica in the list too. Could the lead description allow for significant geographic areas too?--Andynct (talk) 21:13, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
Gjeravica/Deravica is posted as the highest point of both Serbia AND Kosovo, because recognition of Kosovo is still disputed. Fine. Although I think a note at the "Serbia" entry should tell the interested Wikipedians, that the highest point of Serbia proper ist the Midžor: 2,169 m >> see it at the CIA World Factbook Beraldosuperfigo (talk) 19:24, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
'Strong Support of Merge'- There's a page already that contains high and low points for countries. Having a high points and a low points page in addition is superfluous. Let's do a merge Cesium 133 (talk) 08:43, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
It's been more than 5 months since the merge was proposed, and no one has objected to it. I'm going to perform the merge. There is really no need to have three articles for something that can be comprehensively covered in one. Vanjagenije(talk) 10:35, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
