Tips for developing country outlines[edit]

Instructions for developing country outlines is located at Wikipedia:Outlines (while that section is complete, the page is a draft, and will be moved to the Wikipedia namespace when completed). The Transhumanist    21:45, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

A note concerning redlinks...[edit]

Many of the entries (and their links) are standard across all of the country outlines, to aid readers, especially young readers, in comparing countries to each other.

So if this country doesn't have any of a particular entry, like navies, please don't delete the entry. Instead, complete it with "none" (and a brief explanation as to why, for example, "- x is a landlocked country with no ports"). If the explanation exists in an article on Wikipedia, then click on the redlink and create a redirect to that location. See Wikipedia:Redirect, WP:Section linking, and Help:Section#Section_linking.

Standard redlinks (article names) were also chosen based on how country coverage tipically expands. This makes the standard names for these subtopics widely available and easily accessible. So please do not remove those redlinks, for they will turn blue eventually. In the meantime, they can be redirected to the section of whatever article has the relevant information, if any. See Wikipedia:Redirect, WP:Section linking, and Help:Section#Section_linking.

Thank you.

P.S.: To discuss the standard design of the country outlines, or of outlines in general, do so on the Outline of knowledge WikiProject talk page.

Guidelines for outlines[edit]

Guidelines for the development of outlines are being drafted at Wikipedia:Outlines.

Your input and feedback is welcomed and encouraged.

Please check and fix the government section[edit]

The government section needs to be checked for accuracy. The initial data placed in the government branches sections was generated by template, and the data didn't fit all countries.

So those sections need to be looked over, and fixed if needed.

Please help.

Thank you.

In this article (and others) it is clearly stated that Vatican City is an enclave within the city of Rome. Yet this article states also "Vatican City lies next to the Borgo district in Rome."

Does this imply that Vatican City is within the Borgo district, since no other districts are mentioned, or truly "next to" Borgo and no others, in which case it would also be "next to " Rome. The CIA map of Vatican City (in Commons) shows urban areas to the west and east of Vatican City marked as Rome, but the definitive map from Annex 1 of the 1929 Lateran Treaty (also in Commons) does not clarify the matter. Any ideas? Thanks. --TraceyR (talk) 14:31, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

OK. In the following publication I have found what must be a definitive statement:
Title: The Status of the Vatican City
Author: Herbert Wright
Reference: The American Journal of International Law, Vol. 38, No. 3 (Jul., 1944), pp. 452-457
(article consists of 6 pages)
Published by: American Society of International Law
The relevant page (452) can be seen here. It states:

"The liberation of Rome by the Allied forces on June 4, 1944, has served to focus attention on the legal status of the State of the Vatican City, a 108-acre enclave within the city of Rome".

That's good enough for me. --TraceyR (talk) 08:10, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Size ranking[edit]

This article says VC is the 234th largest country over all, but it links to List of countries and outlying territories by total area which lists it at 231. Probably easier to change it to the smallest country in the world.

Quick explanation of Wikipedia outlines[edit]

"Outline" is short for "hierarchical outline". There are two types of outlines: sentence outlines (like those you made in school to plan a paper), and topic outlines (like the topical synopses that professors hand out at the beginning of a college course). Outlines on Wikipedia are primarily topic outlines that serve 2 main purposes: they provide taxonomical classification of subjects showing what topics belong to a subject and how they are related to each other (via their placement in the tree structure), and as subject-based tables of contents linked to topics in the encyclopedia. The hierarchy is maintained through the use of heading levels and indented bullets. See Wikipedia:Outlines for a more in-depth explanation. The Transhumanist 00:02, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
