To-do list for Template:Europe topic: edit·history·watch·refresh· Updated 2018-10-27


Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Template-protected edit request on 20 February 2022

Request to link Ireland to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Eircode_routing_areas_in_Ireland in the template https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:List_of_postal_codes_in_Europe BaronNethercross (talk) 22:56, 20 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

 Done Fixed by creating a redirect at List of postal codes in the Republic of Ireland. – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:21, 20 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Template:List of postal codes in Europe is not protected. I have added |IE=List of Eircode routing areas in Ireland [1] to specify the target of the Ireland link. That means it becomes a bold selflink when the template is used on List of Eircode routing areas in Ireland (where I have just added it). PrimeHunter (talk) 00:59, 21 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Change Ireland link to Names of the Irish state after page move. —Legoless (talk) 23:14, 8 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Links here are automatic, so the redirect will have to do. CMD (talk) 23:46, 8 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done for now: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the ((edit template-protected)) template.
This would require discussion to get consensus about which countries to include and how to list them. Former countries in Europe after 1815 is long and List of former sovereign states#Europe is longer. There are few relevant articles about Prussia and everything else before 1945. If we do add an option for former countries then I think it should be limited to recent and significant countries: Czechoslovakia (1918–1992), East Germany (1949–1990), Soviet Union (1922–1991), Yugoslavia (1919–1992/2006). They should be listed separately, maybe under "Former countries". PrimeHunter (talk) 02:01, 26 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I tried to search about Czechslocakia and East Germany but didn't result in anything meaningful. Prussia had some redirects but now I look deeper into it it seems like they mostly point back to sections in the Prussia article itself. Hence, probably only Yugoslavia and Soviet Union are worth including for the time being, due to number of articles about them. C933103 (talk) 09:48, 26 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This seems unworkable, there are hundreds of former European countries, let alone former countries in other templates. Sticking to existing entities is a simple and understandable benchmark. CMD (talk) 12:05, 26 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Then is it possible to add a parameter to this template, so that when other templates are using this template, they can use the parameter like |historical_states=[[Science and technology in the Soviet Union]], [[Science and technology in Yugoslavia]]" to output | group5 = Historical states|| list5 =[[Science and technology in the Soviet Union]], [[Science and technology in Yugoslavia]], to allow higher degree of freedom when creating templates while removing the problem of having to select what old countries to be included?

Discussion - DPR and LPR

Hello, I was wondering what the threshold is for inclusion of the two separatist entities in Eastern Ukraine under the row "States with limited recognition"? These entities do have official recognition from Russia and from a couple other limited-recognition entities, and the extent of their recognition is now equal to that of Northern Cyprus, and exceeds Artsakh and Transnistria (since DPR and LPR are recognized by a UN member state) Should they or should they not be included? Are we waiting for clarification on their final status after the (hopefully peaceful and immediate) conclusion of the Russian invasion of Ukraine? BasilLeaf (talk) 21:45, 30 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The threshold is probably whether they are included on the main articles for the topic, which I suppose they now are. I'm not sure there's a huge rush to add them here however, they'll be redlinks for almost every topic. CMD (talk) 01:40, 31 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template-protected edit request on 13 April 2022

Although there are lists for some countries such as Finland, these are not seen in the template. So these should be fixed. --Egeymi (talk) 10:28, 13 April 2022 (UTC) Egeymi (talk) 10:28, 13 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
For any particular use of this template, missing links to pages should be solved by creating redirects. CMD (talk) 10:51, 13 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
