Infobox change proposed[edit]

Names in infobox[edit]


Recently various IPs started adding all the names used during countries' existence despite all of that being covered in the prose and they keep edit warring with other users who revert their additions. So I would like to know how many names of the state should be listed in the infobox – the last one, the most common or all? – Sabbatino (talk) 10:14, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
