Help!! Too much white space!

This might just be my browser being a bit stoopid, but theres a huge blank white patch between the intro paragraph and the contents box. I've tried playing around with moving the map to see if that was making this big space appear, but it doesnt seem to work! Ive noticed alot of the other pages don't have this, and was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get rid of it, if it is at all possible to... Thanks! Tim 20:11 6/3/06

I'm not seeing this in Firefox. Jonboy 15:17, 6 March 2006 (EST)

revert language

Tajik is a dialect of Persian, so I reverted it to "Tajik Persian" in the box. Cacahuate 12:35, 23 January 2007 (EST)

Travel warning

I believe Canada and the US have lifted travel warnings as of 15 March 08. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 202.137.241.44 (talkcontribs)

Regions

We can do better than the current regions scheme. Here's my suggestion:

These all conform to the administrative divisions, which isn't something we always want, but I think it would work fine here. --Peter Talk 23:33, 12 January 2010 (EST)

Better yet, split Sughd into Ferghana Valley (Tajikistan) and Zeravshan. The latter would encompass the wikipedia:Sughd#Southern_districts_of_Sughd. The Zervashan article will be a little sparse, but it has the Fann Mountains and Panjakent, so there is legitimate travel content to write about. --Peter Talk 00:04, 13 January 2010 (EST)
I was a little pessimistic about the odds of someone else joining this discussion, so I've plunged forward, and it is done. --Peter Talk 19:13, 14 January 2010 (EST)
Sorry for jumping into the discussion a little late, but I propose just one simple change: the name of the "Pamir" region. In just about everything I've read, the region is referred to as the GBAO. The problem is that Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Province is a bit long for a region name, but I'm not sure an acronym is appropriate either(perhaps use the full name for the region and acronym on the map and in the article). My thought along this line is that not only are tourists more likely to encounter GBAO in reference to the region (especially for GBAO travel permits), it also emphasises that this is an autonomous region...it is difficult to access, this is where the civil war was in full swing, its history is a bit different than the rest of the country (Badakhshan also signifies its relationship with the neighboring areas of Afghanistan), and—while still Tajiks—its people seem more closely related to the Afghans than the peoples of Dushanbe & the Ferghana Valley. Perhaps I'm over-thinking this a bit, but there should be some emphasis that this is a very different region than the rest of the country. What do you think? At the very least the name should be Pamirs...the mountains are the Pamirs and I think without the "s" it just looks bizarre. AHeneen 06:29, 22 June 2010 (EDT)
Agree with Pamirs – cacahuate talk 21:29, 22 June 2010 (EDT)
Putting emphasis on the sharp division between east and west in Tajikistan is a good bit for the region descriptions or intro, I'd say, but I'm fine with changing the name to Pamirs, and will dohave done so. ---Peter Talk 22:07, 22 June 2010 (EDT)
