Template-protected edit request on 8 June 2022[edit]

Can Vatican City be added as a Sovereign State in Europe starting 1929? While every other micronations of Europe is included in the template (Liechtenstein, Monaco, and San Marino), Vatican City is not included. I am currently working on creating and uploading the 'year in' articles for Vatican City, and so far have made the years 1929, 1930, 1931, and 2022 so far, and I would love to see them more easily accessible through this template if possible. Thanks! --Johnson524 (talk) 02:03, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I should also mention that 2022 in Vatican City appears on other '2022 in' pages, but in '2021 in' articles for example where Vatican City does not have an article yet, it does not get a red box displaying the article needs to be made, there's just no mention of the nation. --Johnson524 (talk) 02:07, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Question: Vatican City is included in this template. I suspect you may want Template talk:Year in Europe, which has some further coding. CMD (talk) 02:28, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So to test if this works or not, I typed in both "Europe topic|2021 in" (this one) and "Year in Europe|2021" in a 2021 in country article, and this template did not show Vatican City, while the other one showed it as the link History of Vatican City like that template is supposed to when there is no article link. I'm fine with just using that template if I need to, but seeing that every other country in Europe has a link except the Vatican, I didn't think was correct. Thank you for responing so quickly, I appreciate it 😃 Hope this makes sense! -- Johnson524 (talk) 03:24, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think I see what you mean. This template has an ifexist clause for Vatican City, so if you create the articles they should show up. CMD (talk) 03:45, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
But shouldn't there be a redlink for the article instead of an ifexist to match better with the other nations without an article in that year? -- Johnson524 (talk) 13:25, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This template is used for many many applications. Vatican City has an ifexist because it's unique, so many pages that might be redlinked may simply not ever be useful. CMD (talk) 15:30, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, that makes sense. Thanks for your help! -- Johnson524 (talk) 16:24, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi all, could we link List of forts in Artsakh to the List of forts in Europe template? It's red linked as of right now, but the article exists. Much appreciated, Archives908 (talk) 18:14, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please fix the following.

For 2020 in Ireland, navbox {{Europe topic|2020 in}}

Reason: Ireland is not hilighted. For 2019, 2021, etc. it's correct.

Way beyond my skills, so thanks for helping. JoeNMLC (talk) 16:36, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

For 2015 in Ireland, navbox {{Europe topic|2015 in}}
Reason: Ireland is not hilighted.
Also see several Red Links, so may need further updating. JoeNMLC (talk) 16:50, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Not done:. {{Europe topic}} is used on thousands of articles about various topics. It automatically makes links with systematic names. For Ireland the link says "the Republic of Ireland" by default. If this gives a red link or redirect then you can add the parameter |IE={{subst:PAGENAME}} on articles about Ireland to make a bold selflink to the actual title of the article. PrimeHunter (talk) 17:46, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In this case you can also try whether {{Year in Europe|2020}} gives a better result in general. That's what 2019 in Ireland and 2021 in Ireland does. PrimeHunter (talk) 18:03, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Done - Thanks. Yes that Year in Europe|yyyy navbox works correctly. I updated both 2020 and 2015 for Ireland. Regards, JoeNMLC (talk) 18:57, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reintroduce opt-in former countries[edit]

For context, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Soviet Union and Yugoslavia were supported by the template in January and February 2016 (Special:Diff/798443716) according to this talk section: Template talk:Europe topic/Archive 4#Former states. I sometimes stumble upon Soviet Union and Yugoslavia-related "<topic> in <country>" articles randomly, through search results, never knowing they existed as they are unlinked from any navboxes. For example I was only able to find articles for Terrorism in Yugoslavia, Scouting in Yugoslavia, Telephone numbers in Yugoslavia and Swimming in Yugoslavia through special search for page titles containing "in Yugoslavia". Non-automated navboxes like Template:Postal history of Europe and Template:Tallest buildings and structures contain links to past countries when articles for them exist (obviously, only few will always exist, mostly for states that don't have a single successor, so there's little concern for overpopulating these navboxes). -Vipz (talk) 09:08, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template-protected edit request on 26 November 2022[edit]

Hi, the links to Propaganda in Germany, Italy and United Kingdom are currently directed to disambiguation pages. I understand the reason for this is due to the different the content in the topic covering different eras in history. Is it possible to include the word 'disambiguation' in the link? I am asking this request because I try to clean up Wiki pages that have incorrect or vague disambiguation links and this template appears in the 'list of pages to edit'. Thank you! ColRad85 (talk) 07:47, 26 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I will deal with it by creating {{Propaganda in Europe}} with customized links for some countries. PrimeHunter (talk) 08:44, 26 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@ColRad85: I have created the template and added it to the articles. PrimeHunter (talk) 09:09, 26 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Change "List of mammals of the Republic of Ireland" to "List of mammals of Ireland" Heh0002 (talk) 22:58, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Not done: This is a generic template, so often redirects are needed for some articles. CMD (talk) 01:49, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Heh0002: List of mammals of the Republic of Ireland already redirects to List of mammals of Ireland. I have added |IE=List of mammals of Ireland to the call in that article to produce a bold selflink.[1] PrimeHunter (talk) 11:34, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
