Do we really need all this "Former Yugoslav" stuff? --Jiang

No. --Evan 20:05, 4 Dec 2003 (PST)
Actually, I take that back. I'm not sufficiently versed in the topic to say one way or the other, so I'm gonna back out. --Evan 20:07, 4 Dec 2003 (PST)
It's not absolutely necessary, but then we are going to have to disambiguate it from the Greek and Bulgarian regions of the same name. Maybe Macedonia (country), Macedonia (Greek region), Macedonia (Bulgarian region)? DhDh 22:40, 4 Dec 2003 (PST)

There was an extended debate on this at en:Talk:Republic of Macedonia. I think most people visiting the FYROM would refer to it as just "Macedonia" (like how the western media does it). Problem is, the Greeks find this offensive. Some travel guides also leave out FYRO [1], some don't [2][3]. Maybe Dhum Dhum's proposal will do...but I think Macedonia (Greece) and Macedonia (Bulgaria) will be better. --Jiang 01:19, 5 Dec 2003 (PST)
