[edit] Problematic note

Re [1]. If this is to be applied, then the Republic of China (Taiwan) will have to be removed too.--Huaiwei 15:28, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Have created {{Dependent and other territories of Asia}} and included Republic of China. Perhaps mention of the RoC should become a footnote in the present template...?  Thanks for alert, David Kernow (talk) 16:17, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
...have been bold and amended template accordingly. (My understanding is that the RoC was ousted from the UN in favo/ur of the PRC sometime in the 1960s/1970s...?)  Regards, David (talk) 16:39, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
Not sure what is the best option for now, but I am quite sure removing the ROC from this template is going to spark wildfire. ;) Meanwhile it is kind of odd that HK and Macau appear in {{Dependent and other territories of Asia}} when they are neither dependent nor unrecognized countries. They are a subdivision of an independent country with (largely) autonomous political and economic systems.--Huaiwei 16:44, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
Re HK/Macau, I'd say they're covered by the catch-all "other territories" description in the name. Re RoC, I've no axe to grind, so will let other folk manage the issue!  Yours, David (talk) 06:09, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
Why not lowering the back to at least one-fifth? --Howard the Duck 13:40, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Standardization suggestion - please contribute!

A suggestion for a standard approach to the naming, titling and sections of this and similar templates has been made here – please visit and share your thoughts!  Thanks, David Kernow (talk) 03:27, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

[edit] "TRNC"

Re this, it directly contradicts the note at the bottom. I have reverted to the last consistent version by ChrisO. ·ΚέκρωΨ· (talk) 06:51, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes you are true. But if Republic of China (Taiwan) can be in this template, also Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus can be in this template.--Absar (talk) 13:09, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
In that case, Taiwan shouldn't be there either. ·ΚέκρωΨ· (talk) 08:56, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
Actually, Taiwan should be there but Republic of China shouldn't. Taiwan is a country. Republic of China is a state.
Do you have evidence to back up this claim?--Huaiwei (talk) 05:08, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Cyprus

As it stands, Cyprus does not have a note indicating that it is also in Europe. Considering it appears in the European template, due to its socio-political links to the continent, and as it is a member of the European Union, should it note have the note attached to it regarding its position in both Europe and Asia? 82.45.225.4 (talk) 16:16, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

The notes are used only when the location is disputed. No one disputes that Cyprus is in Asia when speaking in strictly geographic sense, thus the note isn't needed in this template. --Jhattara (Talk · Contrib) 07:36, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Add interwiki

Indonesia has too. Please add interwiki http://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Templat:Asia Reindra (talk) 04:42, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Centralised discussion

A discussion is taking place here on how best to incorporate unrecognised states into a navigation template listing sovereign states and other entities. Some editors have suggested that including such states at all is pushing an imbalanced point of view. Others have made the same argument for not including them. Various conciliatory methods have been proposed, but have not acheived consensus. Editors should note that the outcome of this discussion will most likely have implications on this template aswell. For more information, please have a look at this casefile, or see the before-mentioned discussion page. Night w (talk) 04:14, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Unrecognized States

The template note carries this message

Please note that this template is only meant to carry those countries recognized by a majority of United Nations members.

If that is the case, that's fine, but then Taiwan should not be included in this list, which strangely it is. In my opinion it would be best to remove this clause, and add the TRNC, Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Abkhazia (partly in Europe), and South Ossetia (partly in Europe). Either way, as it stands the template is selfcontradictory and giving Taiwan undue weight against the other countries just named. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 12:13, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
