I ask editors not to jump in edit wars as if there isn't enough time in the world. Instead of placing them all over, one should make the sacrifice to write the article. Marc KJH (talk) , 24 March 2008 (UTC) I removed some pretty wild WP: OR, somebody had placed Romania in here.
While there are different sources in use, not one places Romania in Central Europe.
That's just plain vandalism Jde J (talk) , 24 March 2008 (UTC) --- I am not trying to make any decision here, and I see the votes have been cast already, but as far as it is a question of credible sources, I don't think you can include CIA or NATO - they have an obvious geopolitical bias.
Britannica, on the other hand, only has a cultural bias, but one that can surely be accepted, as this is the English Wiki.
In other words, that Romania is part of Central Europe is at best contested, yet any attempt to present both views in the article has been deleted at sight.
In addition, any fact tag added has also been deleted Jde J (talk) , 24 March 2008 (UTC) Romania is a country at the crossroads of Central Europe 46% (Transylvania, Banat, Crişana, Maramureş and Bukovina) is situated in Central Europe, 38% Southern Europe (Wallachia and the balkanian Dobruja) and Eastern Europe 16% (Moldavia without Bukovina) this is why the geographic position varies, furthermore is more Central European then Southern European or Eastern European Rezistenta (talk) , 24 March 2008 (UTC) Jde J, if the CIA factbook and UN locates Romania in Southerastern Europe (though i wonder why thes do that) you can mention it in the article Southeastern Europe, but it's not a reason to delete Romania from the article Central Europe, because they are also very important organizations, like NATO, who locates the coutry in Central Europe. --Olahus (talk) , 24 March 2008 (UTC) Olahus, I'm not suggesting deleting Romania from this page.
Central Europe is defined as Hungaria, Slovenia, Germany, Austria and others.
The United Nations Statistics Division also places the country in Eastern Europe .And not just organizations like NATO, but also scientific publications locates Romania in Central Europe and they also explain why they do that. I did at first because I overlooked the source by NATO, but it is just as valid as those sources I'm using.I would like to suggest you: Paul Robert Magocsi, Historical Atlas of East Central Europe, University of Washington Press. What I'm suggesting is to make it clear that Romania is included in some definitions of Central Europe and isn't included in other definitions.- Golioder (talk) , (UTC) A user has alerted me that there is a content dispute on this article, whether Romania is in Central Europe.An admin has protected this article for 3 days, so this dispute can be resolved without edit warring.The following sentence seems to be both wrong and biased, at least from Polish point of view: mainly through the attempt by post-Communist governments in former Eastern European lands to create national images distancing themselves from their predecessors.
