Nearest article to World War I red link is in History of modern Greece (1913–1920) section. Odysses () 10:52, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

I have wikified this article, I used the UK topic template as a model as that seems to be the most widely used, this template was getting WAY too clustered anyway.--NeroDrusus 02:39, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

I like it. Good work! --Kimontalk 12:26, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

FAO El Greco[edit]

Hi El Greco, I'm trying to only keep the general categories because that seems to be the general trend on wikipedia country infoboxes.--NeroDrusus 22:23, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

How can you talk about Greece without including anything about the Turkish Wars or Population exchange? Or the Aegean Dispute? Or Greco-Turkish Relations? Or Greece during WWII? Or the Kingdom of Greece? Or the Regime of the Colonels? Are you to tell me some article on the Aegean Civilization dominates those topics. Let's not start on the topic of Geography. Regions of Greece are obsolete compared to Peripheries and Prefectures. How can you include regions and not include those? What about Greek Shipping or Tourism? Is that worthless compared to the list of Greek Banks? Streamlining the template is one thing, but ignoring major Greek topics takes away from the purpose of the template. I know the Greeks have a long history with A LOT of stuff, but ignoring those major topics is not the right way to go just to fit into the norm (general trend).

Thanks for your input, the thing is, the historical articles you cite are issues are dealt with within the aegis of 'History of Modern Greece' (an overview page of the History of Greece since 1821). As for shipping and tourism, they are two of the most important parts of the Greek economy. So you are free to add them to the economy section if you want. As for geography, regions tends to define a larger land mass than peripheries or prefectures (which are largely political divisions), Regions can be discussed in a geographic manner because of this, dealing with geology, respective climates, flora and fauna etc. --NeroDrusus 07:55, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
You still didn't answer me on the Turkey related topics. Are we just to ignore the relations between Greece and Turkey just like that? No Cyprus Dispute? No Aegean Dispute? No Greco-Turkish Relations? Those are far to important just to streamline them like the whole History of Modern Greece link. Last time I checked those are very important political topics in Greece, which is why I'm going to add them back in. El Greco (talk contribs) 19:23, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
NikoSilver, to be honest I totally forgot about that one. Though it doesn't seem that important. It hasn't been a long dispute as with the Aegean or Cyprus ones or have such a profound impact. I'm not that worried about that topic. El Greco (talk contribs) 19:47, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
Feel free to remove it, although Dora might disagree with you! :-) (having devoted so much space...) NikoSilver 20:06, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

I've added a Social issues in Greece page if anyone wants to lend a hand.--NeroDrusus 14:12, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
