The comment below was posted in the article. --bonadea contributions talk10:42, 8 May 2009 (UTC) This table should read as:
Bajo Nuevo Bank and Serranilla Bank were previously listed as being grouped with the United States Minor Outlying Islands. Whatever U.S. government sources lists them as so (according to the USMOI article, there's only one--and the link is broken), is irrelevant until you can establish that the U.S. actually has these banks under their control. The Colombian government lists them as being part of San Andres Department, so there's your equivelant. Unless an editor can find confirmation from a reliable source, de facto jurisdiction over these banks will remain unconfirmed, and this page should reflect that. Rennell435 (talk) 08:54, 4 October 2009 (UTC) 1. I've removed these areas from the North America page. See here for reasons. Rennell435 (talk) 02:50, 26 October 2009 (UTC) 1.1. Regardless of who occupies them they should still be listed, since they are political divisions of North America. Similar to how the palestinian territories are listed on the Asian page, but are occupied by...
There has been an extensive debate over at Talk:List of European countries and territories about what should and should not be included in the list because of the title. Most editors there support moving the page to either List of sovereign states and dependent territories in Europe or List of European sovereign states and territories. If the European list is moved it is likely this list will be moved as well in the next few days unless there is opposition to such a move here. It would help to avoid confusion and disputes if the all of these lists (countries and territories by continents) have the same title. Saying sovereign state rather than country is a more precise term and is in line with the fact List of countriesredirects to the list of sovereign states article. If you have thoughts on the title please raise them here or ideally join the debate at Talk:List of European countries and territories. Thanks BritishWatcher (talk) 19:05, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
There is no reason that Central America needs to be specified on this list. Unless the whole continent is going to be broken into pieces, there is no reason to only include Central America. List of European countries and territories does not specify which countries are in Central Europe or any other part of Europe. Breaking List of countries and territories in the Americas into pieces would be more useful than doing it to this list. There is no reason why the Caribbean Community should not be listed if the NAFTA is. Also, Alex, do not accuse other users of having political biases based on no evidence what so ever. I am English/Australian, so why you would think I wouldn't want Mexico to be highlighted makes no sense to me. McLerristarr (Mclay1) (talk)10:48, 13 August 2010 (UTC) 1. Agreed. It would look like an ugly coloured rainbow if we colour coded these lists into as many different groupings as possible. The European Union is a special case, i do not think NAFTA needs highlightin...

I see why my edits were reverted. On both the Barbuda and Redonda pages it says in the first sentence that both islands are part of Antigua and Barbuda, implying integration. However, on the Antigua and Barbuda page and on its administrative division page, it says that Barbuda and Redonda are dependencies i.e not integral parts of Antigua and Barbuda. None of these statements are backed up with sources. Whoever edited those pages needs to sight their source for it or I suggest going for what the most respected geographical authority says. (I'm new to Wikipedia, so I don't know what that is here.)Anyway, Barbuda and Redonda can't be both dependencies and integral parts, and as soon as this is resolved all related pages (including this one) should reflect this. David815 (talk) 12:43, 3 July 2011 (UTC) 1. Welcome to wikipedia David815. From what I can tell, Barbuda and Redonda seem to have some status of autonomy from the island of Antigua (where the capital is located) but are called...
I've noticed that the dependency section has no column for "Sovereign State". I think that (for the general reader) knowing the state ruling a dependency is certainly more important than knowing the dependency's currency. I'm not saying that the currency column should be removed, I'm just saying that if we're going to have something like that, we should certainly have a Sovereign State column. David815 (talk) 14:45, 3 July 2011 (UTC) 1. Would a legal status section similar to the one in List of sovereign states and dependent territories in Europe#Dependent territories be a good solution? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 17:53, 3 July 2011 (UTC) Great, I'll start tonight! David815 (talk) 23:39, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
The other such lists in Wikipedia--Europe, South America, etc.--have sortable columns for area and population. Is there some reason this one doesn't? In those articles, those lists are sortable--that is, you can click a symbol in their headers and rearrange the list by that criterion, lowest to highest or vice versa. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:56, 16 September 2011 (UTC)Stephen Kosciesza
because the countries Aruba, Curaçoa and Sint Marten (south) are completely independent, shouldn't they be on the list of independent nations? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:59, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
