General edit[edit]

I believe GoegAvachelli was correct to fold the Macedonian front into that of the Balkan theatre, given a number of fronts existed in the Balkans. The North Africa campaign firmly took place in Africa (in what is now Libya, Morocco with an incursion into Egypt) and never crossed the Suez Canal and is therefore not part of the Middle East theatre. The Arab Revolt was in support of the Sinai and Palestine Campaign. --Labattblueboy (talk) 17:17, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

The North African Campaign (World War I) geologically located as North African but the African theatre of World War I rightfully does not include it as part of its operations. As rightfully, it was a different operation waged as a side operation in the Middle Eastern theatre of World War I. The Middle Eastern theatre of World War I includes the operations in this geographic location. The readers who want to learn Middle Eastern theatre could not see North African Campaign under the operations as somebody without knowing what they were doing classified wrongly. This has to be fixed. It needs to be classified where the operations belong to. --GoegAvachelli (talk) 17:28, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
This template includes Arab revolt as part of Middle Eastern theatre. It is part of Middle Eastern theatre of World War I. The exclusion injects biase against the Middle Eastern theatre. --GoegAvachelli (talk) 17:21, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Response to a claim: Removing parts of operations in a theatre on the basis "this is not a big enough" is a biased activity. These links are there to show what constitutes the specific "theatre." Rather than an individual authors' perceptions regarding what is important or not. --GoegAvachelli (talk) 17:33, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
As I have mentioned at Template talk:World War I I don't believe it’s appropriate to include revolutionary / nationalist movements in the campaignbox. Beyond the fact that I only seen their influence noted in relation to how they affected ongoing campaigns, (ie Easter Rising on the Western Front (World War I) and Arab Revolt on the Sinai and Palestine Campaign) but never as standalone campaign or sub-theatres themselves. --Labattblueboy (talk) 18:47, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Inclusion of Kamerun and Togoland campaigns[edit]

This campaignbox has one link for the West African Campaign (World War I) which includes the Kamerun campaign and Togoland campaign. They are two almost completely separate campaigns with almost no link other than that some of the British units that fought in Togoland also fought in Kamerun. Would it be appropriate to amend this campaignbox in order to include links to these two articles or would it be unnecessary?
