Template-protected edit request on 13 May 2014[edit]

There is no article named "Cabinet of Greenland". The proper article to replace said name is "Naalakkersuisut" Kristoffer "Wiki" Winkler (talk) 13:01, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Red question icon with gradient background.svg Not done: it's not clear what changes you want made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. Where do you see Cabinet of Greenland and where do you want it replaced with Naalakkersuisut? Please remember this continent-topic template is transcluded on multiple navigational templates. If there is a technical problem with a specific transclusion (e.g., {{Topic of North America}}), it cannot be corrected here. See the template's documentation for help with fixing a specific transclusion. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 13:16, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
A simple solution for problems like this is creating a redirect from Cabinet of Greenland to Naalakkersuisut, which I've just done. As T13 says, there's nothing that can be done at this template page. SiBr4 (talk) 14:45, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

This template is supposed to be about ski resorts, but instead it has a bunch of countries and territories with red links. It needs some fixes but is currently protected. I would request that either (i) it be fixed or (ii) it be unprotected so that the Wikipedia community can start to fix it. As it stands it looks screwy and gives Wikipedia a amateurish look. See its use here (bottom of page): List of ski areas and resorts in the United States

This template is not supposed to be about ski resorts specifically; it is a general template that can be used in articles on many different topics. For the linked article, where pages for only two of the navbox's entries exist, I would suggest just removing the template, moving any non-red links to the "See also" section. SiBr4 (talk) 17:49, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion. I have done as you suggested and removed the template but added back the single non-red link to the See Also section. Issue resolved, thanks for the guidance. Mdukas (talk) 23:51, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Add List of California wildfires be placed next to US in brackets. Example: (California). Cheers - Kyle1278 (talk) 03:12, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: You might have requested this on the wrong template. This template is generally used for broad topics that are country-level. California is too specific, and not meant for a template like this. Otherwise, if I'm misunderstanding, you should give a syntax usage of how possibly List of California wildfires should be linked from this template You can try {{North America topic|List of | wildfires}}, but that gets you country-level wildfires. — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 03:27, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the info and reply, ill take a look at it and see if another way of linking is possible. Cheers - Kyle1278 (talk) 03:30, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

You could use Template:United States topic for a state-level list, though that would have a lot of redlinks:

The "Life imprisonment in North America" links section at the bottom is full of dead links. Only Canada, Mexico, and the United States of America have working links.

You're welcome to remove the template from the article if you don't think it is useful. The links are created automatically and there is nothing that needs to change in the template. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 17:14, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Football in the United States and Football in Canada[edit]

Hello there - The North America topic template is being used for Football in the various countries - intended to mean Association football, aka Soccer. Can the template be adjusted so that where it links to "Football in Canada" it links instead to Soccer in Canada, and similarly instead of linking to the disambiguation page Football in the United States it points to Soccer in the United States? Thanks in advance, PKT(alk) 20:31, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

Hello? Is this thing on? Is anybody there? ....PKT(alk) 13:08, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
