Change all instances of Macedonia to North Macedonia to reflect rename. HapHaxion (talk / contribs) 20:03, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

We could change the displayed name to North Macedonia but it seems premature to change all links. The template is used in 8800 pages. Many of them have Macedonia links which work now but would be broken by saying North Macedonia. For example, Template:Football in Europe links to Football in the Republic of Macedonia while Football in North Macedonia is currently a red link. In specific instances you can use |MK= to link the wanted article directly. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:51, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
 Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. -- /Alex/21 00:22, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi,

The Symbols of Europe template features on articles for National symbols of England, National symbols of Scotland and National symbols of Wales yet there is no link to these articles from the template. I Suggest an addition to follow the "United Kingdom" link, in brackets/parenthesis containing links to the three pages as exemplified by the Flags of Europe template (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Flags_of_Europe). I believe this is the accepted standard for templates featuring the UK.

As for Northern Ireland, the article linked as Ireland is in fact National symbols of Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. I am unsure of the protocol here, my solution would be another link to this article, named 'Northern Ireland' to appear alongside the UK alongside the three additions suggested above. But would be happy to open this to discussion or acquiesce to someone with better knowledge of the issues.

Thanks for your time and consideration. Cymrogogoch (talk) 11:48, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

 Not done: I think this can already be done in the template invocation per the documentation in the template, but I can't make heads or tails of the documentation itself. Not done for now, and I suggest you take a look to see if you can make it work.
That aside, this whole series of topics templates seems needlessly complex in the name of supposed consistency. Izno (talk) 02:37, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Adding "|UK_only=no" to the template should allow for this, although I don't think it's consistent for symbols given many other subunits also have symbols and wouldn't be included. CMD (talk) 14:12, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Enhance template to include the Azores among Dependencies and other entities. Variations of the template already appear in articles such as Coat of arms of the Azores and Flag of the Azores.

(And for comparison, consider Hymn of the Azores is included in the Template:National anthems of Europe.) — HipLibrarianship talk 23:51, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

@Hiplibrarianship: Done.  Not done:. Sorry, I got the previous discussions out of order when I originally answered this request. The current consensus seems to be to limit this template to entities recognized by ISO 3166-1, which the Azores are not. --Ahecht (TALK

Artsakh is already listed in the template, but not linked. Could an editor please assist, as an Index of Artsakh-related articles does exist. Index of Artsakh-related articles Many thanks! Archives908 (talk) 13:39, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

@Archives908: {{Europe topic}} is a general template used to build more specific templates. I guess you refer to the "Index of Asia-related articles" navigation template on some articles like Index of Azerbaijan-related articles#See also. It is made with {{Europe topic|Index of|-related articles}} which automatically links Index of the Republic of Artsakh -related articles. I have created a redirect to Index of Artsakh-related articles. I have also made a fix [1] to {{Asia related articles index}} to link the article directly when that template is used.

Thank you, it is very much appreciated!Archives908 (talk) 14:43, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Why is Kosovo treated differently than other states with limited recognition? There is a #ifexist test which will hide Kosovo (probably in the absence of link), however it is the only state to be treated this way and all other countries and states are, shown albeit with a red link. This seems to come from this edit, which I suggest reverting. I see no reason to treat Kosovo differently. Place Clichy (talk) 11:18, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

 Done I have reverted this change. The existence check might be a good idea, but we should probably treat all countries in that group consistently. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:33, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
What is this?
