Since we had the start of a discussion on how to handle problems such as Georgia vs. Georgia (see [[Community Meeting Agenda 15 September 2009#Georgia|Community Meeting Agenda, 15 September 2009]]), please place any comments you have on this subject here.
:After adding comments to last week's agenda and then hearing the information as the end of the recording about this discussion page, I am adding the following information that I included in last week's agenda.<br>Slight correction to what someone wrote . . . we live in the country named "United States of America". I do not believe there is a country named "United States". It probably was a typographical error. I would agree that if the country is officially called, in English, "Republic of Georgia", that is what the name of the article should be. However, I do see that the CIA World Factbook calls it Georgia . . . of course, they also call the USA as United States even though their own seal says "United States of America".

:Why should we follow CIA's way instead of the Wiki World relative to the genealogy (I had a big chunkle when I came across eRepublic Wiki and althistory Wiki this morning while looking for additional Banat information.) [[User:Dsammy|Dsammy]] 20:14, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
::I am not suggesting that we follow the CIA . . . I am just suggesting that we use the actual and official English (in the English version of the Wiki) name of the country. [[User:Thomas Lerman|Thomas Lerman]] 20:18, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
