Proposal for topic templates[edit]

A centralised proposal regarding the use of superscript notes in navigation boxes is under discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Countries. The disussion will affect this template. Nightw 12:04, 14 December 2010 (UTC)


Why do the links go to articles for demonyms (most of which are redirects or disambiguation pages) instead of articles for the countries listed? Mr. Granger (talk) 17:45, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

This is a shell template, and should never be used on its own. Using demonyms allows all to link to "X culture" (eg Japanese culture Malaysian culture) or similar. CMD (talk) 13:58, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Ah, makes sense. Thank you. Mr. Granger (talk) 14:11, 2 January 2014 (UTC)


As a cuisine topic, is it better to classify the pages according to the geographical or stylish context than to the degree of sovereignty of which the place the cuisine belongs to? A classification like Central Asian, East Asian, South Asian, West Asian, etc. sounds better to me. Speedyspeedo (talk) 03:12, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
