Removal of demonym Taswegian[edit]

I propose the removal of the demonym "Taswegian" on the basis that it is not used by anyone but a few queer individuals, and many Tasmanians consider the term pejorative. Dukenemesis (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 20:03, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

I agree, for the two reasons you mention, (i.e. not common, and when used, is usually as a put-down). Carlroddam (talk) 04:56, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Has the main island of Tasmania ever been officially documented as "Tasmania" since the Federation of Australia[edit]

Can you please settle a debate we are having at home; We understand Tasmania is a State, but has the main island of Tasmania ever been officially documented in Australia since Federation as the island of "Tasmania". We do realise it has been called Tasmania globally and colloquially.

Just some background, my GGG Grandfather George Mason came out to Hobart Town from London in 1836 on the privately owned 8 crew 2 gun sloop "Vansittart". They shared the harbour for 12 days with the HM Beagle with Cpt Fitzroy and Charles Darwin on board. The Vansittart was subsequently bought by the VDL Govt as a revenue Cutter, before being seconded to the HM Beagle in 1842 to assist in charting the Bass Strait, hence the name change of "Gun Carriage Island" to Vansittart Island in the Flinders Group. :-) Astronumismatics (talk) 00:50, 27 August 2017 (UTC) [1]

Van Diemen's Land was the original name used by most Europeans for the island of Tasmania. The name was changed from Van Diemen's Land to Tasmania in 1856. As for whether it has been "officially documented ... since Federation as the island of Tasmania", I cannot say. --Dukenemesis (talk) 01:19, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
