Sory,no neutral source of Bulgarians in Albania.The govermant state that there are no Bulgarians in Albania! Source:

Continuity issues[edit]

Nice template! I just wanted to mention that there are some continuity issues with the content. The Pomaks are neither a region nor a country; thus, they don't belong in that category. Also, including a link to general dialects and then 2 specific dialects (Banat/Shopski) seems confusing, as a casual reader may consider them separate languages. After all, the section is called "Languages and Dialects." Maybe calling the "Bulgarian dialects" link "more" and placing the link after Banat/Shopski would be clearer, as well as changing "Languages" to "Language" in the section heading.

Lesser version of coat of arms[edit]

To be Balkanian?[edit]

In the nature there is no sub group of bulgarians named balkanian, as it is known, those are the mountains. Yavukluantonio 20:26, 23 April 2013 (UTC)


Shouldn't we remove Macedonians as a subgroup. They're generally considered a separate ethnic group. - Phill24th (talk). 19:00, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. That was Macedonians (Bulgarians). It was kind of misleading for me. Sorry. - Phill24th (talk). 19:03, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Shouldn't we change that it's really misleading. Even Macedonians are referred to, many times, as 'ethnic Macedonians.' We should put something like 'Bulgarian Macedonians' or 'Macedonian Bulgarians.' - Phill24th (talk). 19:06, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Well, it is part of the template entitled Bulgarians. I don't deem it misleading, but we might need an opinion from a user/reader who is not that familiar with the topic. --Laveol T 20:29, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, well, maybe change it just to 'Macedonian' (singular), rather than plural - 'Macedonians,' because there is an existing group claiming that name. Also, I think we should mention ethnic Macedonians in the template as a similar ethnic group. - Phill24th (talk). 12:09, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Also, @Laveol: Can't we just make all of the claimed 'subgroups' names in singular, rather than plural. They aren't their own like separate cultural entities, most of them consider themselves just as 'Bulgarians,' do they not? I think they're written in a regional aspect rather than a separatist cultural/paralinguistic one. - Phill24th (talk). 12:15, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
