Stock post message.svg To-do list for Template:Asia topic: edit·history·watch·refresh· Updated 2018-10-27


Here are some tasks awaiting attention:


Brand Asia[edit]

The Brand Asia template as seen on Brand Hong Kong is unnecessary and could be removed from this template.   JaJaWa |hello  15:06, 12 June 2021 (UTC)[]

This is a general wrapper template. If its use is inappropriate, it's best to just remove it from the page in question. CMD (talk) 15:22, 12 June 2021 (UTC)[]

Template-protected edit request on 25 June 2021[edit]

add Bahrain 金色黎明 (talk) 07:02, 25 June 2021 (UTC)[]

Bahrain is in this template, is there a specific page where you are seeing an issue? CMD (talk) 07:06, 25 June 2021 (UTC)[]

Alphabetize North and South Korea[edit]

North and South Korea should be alphabetized by "N" and "S" respectively, not as "K". South Ossetia does not sort by "O", for example. AllegedlyHuman (talk) 00:31, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]

I think I would support this edit on its own, however these templates currently reflect the names on List of sovereign states. The Koreas (and the Congos) represent interesting examples where parts of the name are more disambiguating adjectives rather than desired inclusions. It would be best to raise this on Talk:List of sovereign states, and see if consensus changes there. CMD (talk) 03:43, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]
OK, I have done that. Thanks for the advice, Chipmunkdavis. AllegedlyHuman (talk) 04:57, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]
 Not done for now: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. Just deactivating the template per the advice given above - if and when consensus is established, feel free to reactivate it. firefly ( t · c ) 11:35, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]

Template-protected edit request on 7 August 2021[edit]

National symbols of Kazakhstan 2A00:23C5:8D98:E201:7C62:735A:F046:5822 (talk) 20:26, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[]

 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. firefly ( t · c ) 20:37, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Template-protected edit request on 11 September 2021[edit]

Egypt should not be part of this. Lkarthik25 (talk) 16:29, 11 September 2021 (UTC)[]

The current inclusion seems quite broad regarding transcontinental countries. Perhaps this could be changed, but it would be better to have a consistent reason than singling out just one. CMD (talk) 17:15, 11 September 2021 (UTC)[]
@Lkarthik25 and Chipmunkdavis: This is frequently requested and always refused, see for example Template talk:Asia topic/Archive 5#Template-protected edit request on 23 February 2014; Template talk:Asia topic/Archive 5#Egypt is a Asian country?How come!; Template talk:Asia topic/Archive 5#Egypt is in Africa!; Template talk:Asia topic/Archive 5#Template-protected edit request on 12 December 2014; Template talk:Asia topic/Archive 5#Error in trivia section; Template talk:Asia topic/Archive 5#Modification edit request; Template talk:Asia topic/Archive 5#Template-protected edit request on 25 June 2017; and Template talk:Asia topic/Archive 5#Template-protected edit request on 10 November 2018. In short: Sinai. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:16, 11 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Template-protected edit request on 7 October 2021[edit]

The Cinema of Palestine page exists but for some reason does not appear in the Cinema of Asia template, that points to Cinema of the State of Palestine. Could you fix this error please? Adam Harangozó (talk) 16:42, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[]

 Already done An editor fixed this problem by creating Cinema of the State of Palestine as a redirect. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:49, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[]
