Template-protected edit request on 6 January 2018[edit]

Change Palestine's flag article name to "Flag of Palestine" as it just redirects. Duonaut (talk | contribs) 00:43, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

@Duonaut: Not done: See box at top of this page, the one beginning "ATTENTION This continent-topic template is transcluded on multiple navigational templates". --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 10:49, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 11 May 2018[edit]

I am requesting that in the Asia template, Palestine should be designated as 'Asian observer states' or 'sovereign states' and separate from the 'states with limited recognition category', as its a UN observer and has a far more substantial percentage of recognition (70.5%), making it mostly recognized and de jure. Please carefully consider this change and it is not attached to any political biases. Talatastan (talk) 17:18, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. — JJMC89(T·C) 18:14, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

Remove landlocked Countries and those without any islands from the List of Islands of Asia.

Since they'll be perpetually red links anyway. Rezelc (talk) 23:58, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: If you're referring to Lists of islands#Asia you can just edit that article directly. It is not produced using this template. If you're referring to something else, please clarify — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 07:35, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

A link to a DAB page[edit]

In Kuwait Army and List of armies by country, this template calls Army of Vietnam, which is a DAB page. It should call People's Army of Vietnam. Narky Blert (talk) 14:16, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

The link can be changed using |VI= |VN=People's Army of Vietnam. The template may as well be replaced with {{Military of Asia}} in those articles, though, for consistency with all other Asian army articles as well as to avoid redirects. SiBr4 (talk) 16:15, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
@SiBr4: I have precisely no interest whatsoever in fixing obscure complex templates which create problems for DABfixers like me. I know how to fix the best part of 20 cute templates which create problems which are picked up by User:DPL bot, this template still calls that DAB page. Please, fix this problem. Your template, your problem, this is not the first time I have encountered a to me insoluble problem in a "Continent topic" template which has wasted my time. It is also not the first time I have received an answer which did not address the problems created by such a template.
It's all about the readers. Narky Blert (talk) 22:05, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
There's no need for or even use in editing the template itself, as the big orange box at the top of this talk page points out. This is not a template about armies; it can link to any "X of country" articles and many other formats, so any problematic links should be fixed in the articles that use the template, like this.
