Template-protected edit request on 30 September 2018

Add a link to Category:Europe, Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe, and Portal:Europe at the bottom of the template. See the proposed changes at Template:Europe topic/sandbox. —Eli355 ( talkcontribs ) 18:35, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Link to wikiproject shouldn't be included per MOS:Internal links:"Do not create links to user, WikiProject, essay or draft pages in articles, except in articles about itself (see Self-references to avoid)." Galobtter (pingó mió) 18:46, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
@Galobtter: So just add links to Category:Europe and Portal:Europe. (proposed changes in Template:Europe topic/sandbox). —Eli355 ( talkcontribs ) 19:49, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
I oppose that as not relevant enough. The template is used in topic-specific navboxes like {{Public holidays in Europe}}, {{Television in Europe}}, {{Trade unions in Europe}}. The navboxes are used in country-specific articles like Public holidays in Andorra, Television in Finland, Trade unions in Armenia and so on. The articles have limited relevance to Europe in general.

Change Andorra to Police Corps of Andorra Vpab15 (talk) 00:03, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

@Vpab15: This is a shell template that is transcluded on multiple navigational templates which are unrelated to police. I guess you want a bold selflink in the navbox at Police Corps of Andorra. I have made this with AD=Police Corps of Andorra.[1] When the navbox is generated on other articles it can continue to use the redirect Law enforcement in Andorra. Is this OK?

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)

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/php/SummaryGet.php?FindGo=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
