I changed the name of the article to English version (without the diacritic) as the general policy is that the name should be given in the language used in the article rather than the native name (for example in English Wikipedia article about Germany would be under "Germany", not "Deutschland"). If for some reason it has to be given with dacritic, it can stay though. Best regards, [[User:Rustem Pasha|Rustem Pasha]] ([[User talk:Rustem Pasha|talk]]) 14:24, 4 March 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, that's what I figured. I'm thinking I'll either change the name back to English (or it's translation to English). I appreciate the message :)

Hello! I hope you're having a great day. I saw your request to update the flag template. Normally, I would be happy to do it straightaway, but I do have to take pause in the current situation.

I would strongly encourage you to consider revising the color scheme of the flag a bit&mdash;namely, the instances and juxtapositions of bright neon colors that might work on a computer screen but don't really on a flag. Having a single-color standard in the background would also go a long way to helping. I will tell you that this is something I've wrestled with in the past myself. Mauretia's flag had too neon of a yellow back on the old wiki, since my computer was old and didn't have a good rendering. Anyway, I'm not here to police flags down to the detail, but we do have a site policy that cannot be ignored in this instance. If you have questions or would like advice, I'm happy to offer some.

Hi!

I changed the name of the article to English version (without the diacritic) as the general policy is that the name should be given in the language used in the article rather than the native name (for example in English Wikipedia article about Germany would be under "Germany", not "Deutschland"). If for some reason it has to be given with dacritic, it can stay though. Best regards, Rustem Pasha (talk) 14:24, 4 March 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, that's what I figured. I'm thinking I'll either change the name back to English (or it's translation to English). I appreciate the message :) Unsigned comment by Anonymous21 (talk).

Flag

Hello! I hope you're having a great day. I saw your request to update the flag template. Normally, I would be happy to do it straightaway, but I do have to take pause in the current situation. Although I am not strict in my enforcement on the wiki, we do have a site policy about verisimilitude that comes into play here. I would strongly encourage you to consider revising the color scheme of the flag a bit—namely, the instances and juxtapositions of bright neon colors that might work on a computer screen but don't really on a flag. Having a single-color standard in the background would also go a long way to helping. I will tell you that this is something I've wrestled with in the past myself. Mauretia's flag had too neon of a yellow back on the old wiki, since my computer was old and didn't have a good rendering. Anyway, I'm not here to police flags down to the detail, but we do have a site policy that cannot be ignored in this instance. If you have questions or would like advice, I'm happy to offer some.
