"As you can check at all the other counties in Ro, there is no history topic. For any history related topic you can modify at the region in which the county is"

this is not an argument... Counties do not have local history?? Of course they have ... And county Maramures in particalary have a quite interesting history. It is a place where Moldova history begun.

We cannot add every single city, municipality, county's history into theirs motherland history section.--fz22 08:25, 23 August 2005 (UTC)

the other counties of Romania don't have history section because nobody added to them, but I think that they should. bogdan | Talk 07:54, 24 August 2005 (UTC)
Your support of this initiative is very much appreciated! ... Thanx!

Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names)[edit]

in accordance with Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names) page,

paragraph 2.

The lead: The title can be followed in the first line by a list of alternative names in parenthesis: {name1, name2, name3, etc.}. Any archaic names in the list (including names used before the standardization of English orthography) should be clearly marked as such, i.e.: (name1 arch.). Relevant foreign language names[3] are permitted and should be listed in alphabetic order of their respective languages, i.e.: (Armenian: name1, Belarusian: name2, Czech: name3). Alternatively, all alternative names can be moved to and explained in a names section immediately following the lead. In this case, the redundant list of the names in the article's first line should be replaced with the following text: (known also by several alternative namesNames). Once such a section or paragraph is created, the alternative English or foreign names should not be moved back to the first line.


^ The geographic location is considered to have a single widely accepted English name in modern context (swaEn) if the following two conditions are satisfied simultaneously: The English-language encyclopedias (Encyclopedia Britannica, Columbia Encyclopedia and Encarta) consistently use this name in all articles where the corresponding location is mentioned in modern context. This name obtains the largest number (75% or more of total hits considering all possible variants) of Google Scholar and Google Books hits (count only articles and books, not number of times the world is used in them) when searched over English language articles and books where the corresponding location is mentioned in modern context. If the name of the location coincides with the name of another entity, care should be taken to exclude inapropriate pages from the count.

internet hits returned 11.800 results of "Hargita county" and 154 000 results of "Harghita county". English encyclopedias consistently use the name "Harghita county"

there was a voting meant to settle this problem, concluded with 5 votes in favour of providing the HU names against 2. the relevancy of that vote is reduced to 7 people voting,

considering the relevancy of English Encyclopedias and Wikipedia naming conventions

i here by remove the names of hungarian administrative divisions provided as alternates for names of romanian administrative divisions from the lead of the article. refer to Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names) for any debate on this matter Criztu 07:39, 10 July 2006 (UTC)criztu

hungarian names for Counties of Romania are not alternative names in english sources[edit]

for the editors that keep reverting to lead section formulation with a hungarian name for the administrative divisions of Romania, please consult the currently under development Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names). Dispute resolution: Avoid revert wars: If there is a dispute regarding the naming convention in the contents of the article, to prevent revert wars the name from the title of the relevant article should be used in all occurrences until a consensus is reached on the relevant talk page(s). . I have explained my view on providing hungarian names for administrative divisions and geographic places in Romania that are not shared by Romania with Hungary. the situation is similar to providing a hungarian name for London. since Britannica does not ofer hungarian names for administrative divisions of ROmania, i will object to providing the hungarian names in the english wikipedia in the lead section. i will move these names to Demographics, or to a Names section according to the same Wikipedia under development guide Criztu 21:19, 7 August 2006 (UTC)


Should the recently created Maramureş Mountains Nature Park [1]be mentioned under economy or tourism? It is certainly going to be a major attraction soon.

Title dispute[edit]

Why are you disputing it? How would you name it? bogdan (talk) 12:48, 17 February 2008 (UTC)


This page is titled Maramureș County with a ș but the corresponding category is titled Category:Maramureş County with a ş. Presumably one of these is right and one is wrong, but I have no idea which. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 18:58, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

ș is the right one. For more info, check this article out: S-comma. Mentatus (talk) 20:15, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
