Your reasoning is sound. Typically we use these "list of X" articles just to make sure we covered all the bases. --Evan 07:52, 3 May 2006 (EDT)

List of Chinese provinces and regions[edit]

Moved from User talk:Wrh2

I noticed you removed Taiwan, but since that particular list is of the political geography of China (the official political divisions, which need to represent reality), it should remain on the list. I have no invested interest in the politics of Taiwan's status as independent versus Chinese, but this list is intending to be factual, so it should show that rather than Wikitravel hierarchy, which is in the actual articles. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)

See Wikitravel:Be fair#Political disputes. Adding Taiwan to the list of Chinese provinces will undoubtedly result in someone from Taiwan removing that addition, so the Wikitravel compromise is to defer to whatever is most appropriate for travelers in situations where there are political disputes. The same goes for situations such as Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Argentina and the Falkland Islands, etc. -- Ryan • (talk) • 14:03, 20 October 2009 (EDT)
I added a couple of lines about Taiwan. Pashley 21:25, 20 October 2009 (EDT)
Seems like a reasonable compromise, thanks! -- Ryan • (talk) • 21:34, 20 October 2009 (EDT)
