Country tags » answer
by Catesse (AU), 2015-12-15, 02:07  Spam?  
I have been holding off voting on the new names of countries because of the domain tags. For six years, the custom has been to refrain from using these. Now that jumis has raised the question, I think that it should be decided on forum. I am against the usage of these tags, but if forum decides that they should be used, I will go along with this. It is not an ethical question, simply one of convenience and consistency.

As there is no rule in the guidelines regarding that, both versions are correct. Please vote for the first correct version. Maybe I'll just go over these tags someday in the future and remove them in all language pairs.
Right now?  #827502

If they are going to be removed, wouldn't it be better to tackle the unverified ones right now by entering them correctly in the first place? (I am not suggesting reopening ones already confirmed.)

Sorry! I was too prompt in correcting my votes after reading Paul's answer.

Right now it's more important to close the entries as fast as possible without adding new rules. That's why I'd like to apply GL3.

Checking various language pairs I see both kinds of entries in a verified state, and I don't see any of the versions occur significantly more often. Cleaning up all of in a semi-automated way is easier without pending votes.
Outvotes  #827666
by Catesse (AU), 2015-12-16, 07:01  Spam?  
As long as the verifications don't cause outvotes. (I don't think that they do.) I'll go check them right now.
