Last paragraph of "Death zone" section: "not successful getting" to "not successful in getting". "is a recognised as" to "is recognised as" "was pioneer by" to "was pioneered by" "had major problem" to "had a major problem" "bottle oxygen" to "bottled oxygen" 94.173.44.201 (talk) 20:07, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Tibet map title[edit]

I've added a second map for Tibet (since the peak is divided between Nepal and Tibet). However, the map title is displaying as China Tibet topography right now, which is overbearing. Ideally, it should just read Tibet. I believe this is stemming from the location map code. If anyone has any ideas how to fix this, I've posted the question here: Module talk:Location map#Changing map title. If others wish to remove the map until the title is fixed, I understand. --NoGhost (talk) 21:00, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

This issue appears to have (magically) resolved! --NoGhost (talk) 21:59, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Political neutrality[edit]

This article is quite heavy on the politics, doing stuff like instead of calling it the "Chinese" side calling it the "communist" side. It's ridiculous, and needs to be changed to maintain political neutrality. It simply doesn't belong in an article like this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NotOfImportanceToYou (talkcontribs) 19:40, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Everest is mentioned to exist in Nepal-China border whereas it actually exists in Nepal-Tibet border. Hrishg (talk) 10:47, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

 Not done The lead and infobox both already make it clear that the border is between Nepal and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. Apuldram (talk) 13:37, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Proposed Merge[edit]

The result of this discussion is withdrawn. I placed the merge template on the Mount Everest in 2017 article (diff) after reverting a redirect to the Mount Everest article that occurred (diff). After this, the split occurred that moved content from the Mount Everest article to the 2017 article. Nobody is supporting a merge, and at this point, it's pretty much moot per the spinout that occurred. North America1000 10:49, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

There is a currently a tag on the article: "It has been suggested that Mount Everest in 2017 be merged into this article." I oppose this proposal as the reverse would make more sense - the large and growing section on the 2017 season (and other recent seasons) is out of place in a general Everest article which is already overlong IMHO - I suggest that the content of the 2017 section should be moved to the separate 2017 article (except for the Hillary Step news which seems notable and could be worked into the Climbing Routes part of the article). Samatarou (talk) 03:36, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

I agree with Samatarou that the yearly information about expeditions is overwhelming this article with trivia. I would like to point out the existence of Timeline of Mount Everest expeditions. I would move much of the material from Mount Everest#History of expeditions into that other article, and also merge Mount Everest in 2017 into Timeline of Mount Everest expeditions. —hike395 (talk) 05:42, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
I agree with Hike395 that the article is being overwhelmed with trivia and that nearly all the material in section Mount Everest#History of expeditions should be moved to Timeline of Mount Everest expeditions. One or two sentences from Early attempts, First successful attempts and perhaps 1970 disaster should be summarised and still be included here. Is the next step to make a formal part move proposal? Apuldram (talk) 09:44, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
I don't think we need a more formal discussion than what is happening here on the talk page. —hike395 (talk) 13:13, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Comment When making the proposal yesterday, Northamerica1000 dated it April 2017. The article Mount Everest in 2017 was created by Fotaun on 20 May 2017. Apuldram (talk) 10:40, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

I started to Mount Everest in 2017 to move the content over from the main page which is getting really large. Fotaun (talk) 17:50, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
@Fotaun: That's good news. I think it means that you would be content if Mount Everest#History of expeditions is moved to Timeline of Mount Everest expeditions. That would help to unclutter Mount Everest. Cheers. Apuldram (talk) 18:58, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
With something like Everest, we are working against having mega pages since there is so much content. Timeline is a great article with summaries, but it is also huge. Having a solo page for big years like 2014, 2015, or in this case as it is turning out, 2017 is a way to archive this material without over-stressing the big E or timeline. Fotaun (talk) 19:39, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose merging anything here at this point. Support moving material from this article to Timeline/History/2017 articles; possibly even creating new articles for seasons with large amounts of notable, verifiable information. Joefromrandb (talk) 20:21, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
The consensus seems to be in favor of offloading some material, when relevant to timeline, history, or even new articles. I took another step in this direction by offloading 2013, which at the time was center-stage but is now dated. Someone also suggested timeline, and that could work for the smaller entries that don't have their legs for a solo page. Fotaun (talk)
