Questions about choosing which name of a place to use, or which spelling of a name. (Not for questions just about how to format or disambiguate tags for placenames.)

Questions about choosing which name of a place to use, or which spelling of a name. Examples:

  • Bombai vs Mumbai
  • Burma vs Myanmar
  • Kiev vs Kyiv
  • Nuremberg vs Nürnberg
  • Zurich vs Zürich

Not for questions just about how to format or disambiguate tags for placenames. Examples:

  • georgia vs georgia-country

The latter discussions are better thought of as being about the tags, not about the names of the places per se.

Some discussions will cover both though, and that's fine. Use this tag in combination with tagging etc.
