UN information

"According UN information, we have 17 states with limited recognition and 63 micronations" - I believe, that information about 17 states with limited recognition and 63 micronation is not UN information. Dinamik (talk) 08:53, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Territorial disputes

Territorial disputes exist not only between states with limited recognition, but also between "full" UN-states. Dinamik (talk) 08:54, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Dinamik, could you edit this page? I don't treat it like my own property, and will be happy if it will be edited in collaborative way. Especially in examples section. Dkiselev (talk) 06:44, 31 March 2015 (UTC)


I'm not sure, that we should talk about micronations, because they are more virtual objects, than real. The only exlusion is Sealand because of specific conditions of its establishing (juridical casus, which allowed to establish this state/micronation). Dinamik (talk) 08:57, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

  • OK, I have deleted them Dkiselev (talk) 06:39, 31 March 2015 (UTC)


Actually visit modes a bit more complicated. For example, if you are citizen of Israel you are prohibited to visit Palestine territories. However if you are just a tourist and do not have an Israel citizenship you can cross the border and visit Bethleem, for example. Not sure how to tag it according proposed scheme. --Keder (talk) 09:13, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Yep, I know, I want to make a cheatsheet for most common cases. Of course there always will be somethig much more complicated. Dkiselev (talk) 10:11, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

usage of existing tags

I think it would be better to use existing tags. For example type=boundary + boundary=disputed + admin_level=2 instead of type=disputed_boundary + boundary_disputed=2. This makes it easier for data consumers as those have the existing keys already in their database. --4rch (talk) 14:23, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Mismatch in provided map and the cited source

I have serious concerns about the political motives behind the map. The regions showed on the map on this page do not match with the list of 17 states with limited recognition. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sy.mehdi.riz (talkcontribs) 08:18, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Maybe it did at the time? The last edit to the proposal page is 3 years old, its status is abandoned (which means no-one is working to get it accepted as a recognized map feature). —M!dgard [ talk ] 09:37, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
