Template-protected edit request on 8 May 2016[edit]

Add List of California wildfires be placed next to US in brackets. Example: (California). Cheers - Kyle1278 (talk) 03:12, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: You might have requested this on the wrong template. This template is generally used for broad topics that are country-level. California is too specific, and not meant for a template like this. Otherwise, if I'm misunderstanding, you should give a syntax usage of how possibly List of California wildfires should be linked from this template You can try {}, but that gets you country-level wildfires. — Andy W. (talk · ctb) 03:27, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the info and reply, ill take a look at it and see if another way of linking is possible. Cheers - Kyle1278 (talk) 03:30, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

You could use Template:United States topic for a state-level list, though that would have a lot of redlinks:

The "Life imprisonment in North America" links section at the bottom is full of dead links. Only Canada, Mexico, and the United States of America have working links.

You're welcome to remove the template from the article if you don't think it is useful. The links are created automatically and there is nothing that needs to change in the template. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 17:14, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Football in the United States and Football in Canada[edit]

Hello there - The North America topic template is being used for Football in the various countries - intended to mean Association football, aka Soccer. Can the template be adjusted so that where it links to "Football in Canada" it links instead to Soccer in Canada, and similarly instead of linking to the disambiguation page Football in the United States it points to Soccer in the United States? Thanks in advance, PKT(alk) 20:31, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

Hello? Is this thing on? Is anybody there? ....PKT(alk) 13:08, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Add an * Iceland link following Honduras. Iceland is a Transcontinental country, owing to the fact that 50% of its land area and ≥33% of its population - including the capital Reykjavik - lie in North America. Glide08 (talk) 10:22, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. Iceland is generally considered within Europe, and so for navigation purposes (but perhaps not geographic/geologic purposes) makes sense where it is in {{Europe topic}} and not in North America topic Galobtter (pingó mió) 13:03, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 6 January 2019[edit]

Can you please add the following article to the list of "Dependencies and other territories" in this template?

This article did not exist until today, and consequently was not included in this list prior to it being locked for editing. Please add this so that the name only appears as "Canal Zone". The term "Panama Canal Zone" is incorrect, and it should not be used. This is because the license plates in this article are those issued by the territorial government of the Canal Zone from 1910 - 1979, controlled by the U.S. government, and not the country of Panama. Additionally, the word "Panama" never appears on the plates. Thank you! Zcarstvnz (talk) 16:33, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

This is the template I am referring to.

 Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. Please discuss these two things first: 1. changing Panama Canal Zone to Canal Zone, and 2. adding the zone as an element of Template:North America topic. – Jonesey95 (talk) 00:10, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
Jonesey95 Why are you requesting #1 in your comment? Panama Canal Zone does not appear in the template. Can you please strike through #1 to eliminate it from the requirement or further explain why it is needed? Thanks! Zcarstvnz (talk) 09:28, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
You are asking for "Canal Zone" to be added to the template, but the consensus at "Panama Canal Zone" is to lead with the word "Panama". If you are OK with adding "Panama Canal Zone" to {{North America topic}}, I am happy to do that. – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:09, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 20 September 2019[edit]

Please add the portal Relief Map of Caribbean.png Caribbean portal to this template, maybe in the section listing portals for island nations, or island territories. many that don't have their own portal are covered by that portal. thanks. --Sm8900 (talk) 14:35, 20 September 2019 (UTC) Sm8900 (talk) 14:35, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. Sm8900, This template is not concerned solely with portals. Adding a portal which is relevant to only 13 of the 23 nations is not appropriate. I had a look at your contributions around the time you submitted this request and still couldn't see what you had in mind. Cabayi (talk) 13:11, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
