The following discussion comes from Wikipedia:Categories for deletion. This is an archive of the discussion only; please do not edit this page. The decision was to keep Category:Airports of Taiwan.

Note: This agrees with the earlier decision that resulted in the creation of Category:Airports of Taiwan and the deletion of Category:Airports of the Republic of China. That discussion is archived at Category talk:Airports of Taiwan. -Aranel ("Sarah") 00:40, 8 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Keep category as referring to Taiwan That's the term everyone understands - ROC is little known and confusing to most. Also, I am getting tired of all these move Taiwan to ROC requests from Instantnood (see also WP:RM), each of which has failed to gain consensus, jguk 21:01, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep as is. Instantnood is on a trek to forward a personal political agenda and he's long exhausted a lot of people's patience with this crusade of his. —ExplorerCDT 21:25, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • It has nothing to do with any political agenda. It is a set of naming conventions. — Instantnood 10:42 Feb 28 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Postdlf 02:30, 28 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Interesting - someone deleted my vote of keep. Grutness|hello? Grutness.jpg 12:07, 28 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep until the two countries become one, if ever. gidonb 16:14, 28 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • I'm afraid you have misunderstood. The two governments are the "Republic of China" (ROC) and the "People's Republic of China" (PRC). The ROC is commonly now known as "Taiwan", but that's not accurate, just like calling the United Kingdom England, or the Netherlands Holland. By the way, would you mind joining the discussion at Wikipedia:Requested moves#Economy of Taiwan → Economy of the Republic of China? — Instantnood 19:44 Feb 28 2005 (UTC)
      • I am afraid the government of China uses nationalistic sentiments in the minds of its (former) citizens to sidetrack people's opinions from the brutal dictatorship, murder of innocent demonstrators in the Tiennamen massacre, and the harsh conditions of human rights. I meant what I said and I said what I meant. Your analogues are plainly wrong, as Taiwan refers to the island that is (forget about a few tiny islands) the entire jurisdication of ROC. That situation is quite different from England/GB/UK (contained) or Holland/Netherlands (contained) and more similar to that of US/USA/"America"/50 states (equal). gidonb 10:29, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
        • No. Taiwan is not the entirety of of the ROC, and calling it as the ROC has nothing to do with the PRC and its brutal dictatorship. For why the ROC should be called ROC, You may get the answer from the ongoing discussion at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (Chinese)#..of Taiwan → ..of the Republic of China. — Instantnood 11:49 Mar 4 2005 (UTC)
          • There are different opinions in the discussions there. Yours are clearly in disagreement with mine. gidonb 12:55, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
            • Technically, "Taiwan" more or less refer to the island itself, geographically. One reason why, in Taiwan, if we were to talk about the "political" part, we use RoC. "Taiwan", by definition, doesn't include the islands. RoC, however, covers the islands under the political control. Penwhale 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
            • 1) This is part of the block move, 2) the situation is like Northern Ireland and Great Britain to the United Kingdom, and 3) my opinion is based on the naming conventions. — Instantnood 11:05 Mar 5 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Maurreen 08:05, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)
