Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 3 external links on Member state of the European Union. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

The name of the page[edit]

As there is a redirect in place from Member states of the European Union, is it safe to add DISPLAYTITLE:Member states of the European Union, as the word states should be plural? AndrewTeal (talk) 12:22, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

I now see this has been previously discussed under 'Requested move 3', so this may re-open a can of worms ... I hope they don't bite! AndrewTeal (talk) 12:50, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Section sizes[edit]

My opinion is that some of the summary sections here (those including {{further or {{main article) are overlong and repeat too much of the detail from the linked article. A consequence is that fulfilling some of the [citation required] requests is going to repeat the citations, too! I was looking at Political systems in particular, but others appear similar. Should I just bite the bullet and copy the citations? For Political systems some of the material is not in the main article (eg "All but 4 are ranked at the top 1.0 rating"), but as the main page apparently needs cleanup that might be an opportunity for me. Diffident about tackling ex-FAs and FLs, though! AndrewTeal (talk) 16:22, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

This list will now need an update[edit]

If one looks at the article European Union, and goes to its history, it says that the UK has not left yet. I heard on the Raddio Four Today programme a short while ago that the results are now complete and the leave voters have won. This means that we will need to update this article. It gives the UK as a member state,but we voted to leave.Vorbee (talk) 05:25, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

The UK should be marked as a current member to be removed (two years to complete the formal exit, till 2018), because the majority of the citizens choose to leave. They forgot the old saying "divide et impera". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.49.13.201 (talk) 05:59, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps a footnote on the UK to indicate the pending exit?    → Michael J    09:57, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

EU referendum on Brexit[edit]

Hi, should UK be taken out as member of the EU, since the results of United Kingdom withdrawal from the European Union is out? Just seeking from any members who has privileges to update this page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yosefshlomo (talkcontribs) 09:30, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

My opinion is that a footnote should be put on the UK listing in the table, until the Brexit actually becomes effective. I am not sure how it should be worded, though.    → Michael J    09:55, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
Something such as "The UK voted to leave in a referendum on 23 June 2016, but has not yet formally begun the process of leaving." could work. It can be updated as necessary. CMD (talk) 10:37, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
I have changed the wording a bit to avoid the implication that the formal invocation or Article 50 is a foregone conclusion. --Boson (talk) 09:26, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Issue is certain experts are claiming that article 50 may never be invoked, and others calling for a second referendum, so I would warn against heavy editing at this stage of the game. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 147.143.95.83 (talk) 14:01, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

  • The UK should not be removed, because they have not actually left yet or even started the process to leave; the vote was nonbinding. 331dot (talk) 16:56, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

I would like an administrator to add a statement about the UK voting to leaving the EU. Attached to the following source http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/politics/eu_referendum/results 86.187.248.16 (talk) 10:18, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Remove the United Kingdom after its exit today. Lcard9 (talk) 11:17, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

The UK did not exit today. Exiting is a long process, which has not yet begun. CMD (talk) 11:36, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Protected edit request 3 on 24 June 2016[edit]

Request that a footnote be added to the line for United Kingdom indicating its pending exit from the EU as a result of Brexit. (And perhaps a line in the text to the same effect.)

   → Michael J    12:09, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

I suggest adding a footnote saying "The United Kingdom voted to leave the EU in a referendum on 23 June 2016, but has not yet formally begun the process of leaving." in the List section. CMD (talk) 13:21, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Remove the 28 Member states and replace by 27 following the outcome of the EU referendum in the United Kingdom on the 23rd June.

Majdaammi (talk) 13:45, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

No. The UK is still part of the EU until the Brexit is implemented. And the map showing the UK no longer being a member state needs to be changed by an administrator to re-include the UK. Bueller 007 (talk) 13:51, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

UK is no longer a part of the EU. My friend P-Money gets full credit for the discovery of this incongruity.

The UK is no longer in the EU, they need to be removed from the list of countries.

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: They haven't left the EU just yet. They will leave when Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty is invoked and negotiations with other EU member states have come to an end (after 2 years). st170etalk 00:30, 26 June 2016 (UTC)
