  • Mediterranean Europe. Made redundant by new Europe categories. All pages which linked to it now link somewhere else. Professorbiscuit 18:32, 15 Oct 2004 (EDT)
    • Disagree - Page should REDIRECT to Europe or somewhere that is similarly relevant. It could be a disambiguation page if multiple pages are relevant. - Huttite 00:59, 16 Oct 2004 (EDT)
    • Disagree - REDIRECT, not delete. Jpatokal 06:01, 28 Oct 2004 (EDT)

Map Coloring

I've prepared alternative map coloring of Mediterranean Europe. Please comment if you like it. -- JanSlupski 10:25, 12 Feb 2005 (EST)

Nobody commented... So, now revert if you dislike ;-)
BTW. If still nobody care to comment I'll go forward and change coloring of another European region :-P --JanSlupski 20:17, 22 Mar 2005 (EST)
I don't like it. There are way too many colors, it's hard to read and doesn't look professional. Jpatokal 21:05, 22 Mar 2005 (EST)

title-what countries

Shouldn't Serbia be removed from this category now that Montenegro is no longer part of Serbia and Montenegro?

I agree Serbía is hard to define as a Mediterranean country now that it is no longer part of a country with a Mediterranean coastline, the same goes for Macedonia as well. I personally know geography quite well and don't think of either as being Mediterranean.-- 12:57, 3 November 2006 (EST)


Why isn't the South of France included in this page?

It is the same problem in wikipedia, where a lot of people doesn't accept (for ideological geopolical reason I think) the fact that France is a latin and mediterranean country, for no rational reasons they think that France should be arbitrary linked only with UK and Netherlands; (countries with which ones France doesn't share much in term of culture and language - only a little bit of common points in regions such as Nord-pas-de-calais, Normandy or Britanny who share some superficial similarities (such as climates and ambiance) with Wales (in the case of Britany), with Netherlands (in the case of Nord-pas-de-calais) and with England for Normandy. France, as a country with mediterranean coasts, of latin herency, whose culture is rooted in the mediterranean area share a lot of the common point that share Spain and Italy (even more in some cases). —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 14 August 2006

On the other hand, some countries like Serbia or Croatia could be excluded, since the mediterranean part is very limited, and because the culture and mopst of the people of this slavic country is not of mediterranean origin but rooted in the central-eastern Europe.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 2 September 2006

Change name?

  • I've just added a remark about Alexandria and other places which to me are also obviously Mediterranean, though mostly not European. Comment? I'd say we should scrap "Mediterranean Europe", especially if it does not fit current European hierarchy, replace it with a "Mediterranean region" article covering more.

I rolled back the change of Macedonia to FYROM. Unless there's a really important reason for us to use this longer and clumsier name, I'd rather not. --Evan 17:36, 4 December 2006 (EST)
