Another micronation should be mentioned[edit]

There's a micronation called Republic of Parva Domus (es:Parva Domus) founded in 1878 that due to its long history would be worth to be mentioned in this article. --Zerabat (talk) 16:59, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Should micronation XYZ be included here?[edit]

I see people proposing a new micronation to be mentioned in this article on a regular basis. I'm not here to argue specifics for each such example, but to try to establish some general rules.

Is the micronation notable in its own right? If it meets the wikipedia criteria to have an article (see wp:note, and be aware of wp:spip), then it should have its own article. All such pages about individual micronations should then be included in a list category.

Within this page itself, since this should ideally be an article about the concept of micronations, what they are, how they come about, etc., and not a collection of micro-articles about individual micronations. That is to say, it should not be merely a list page with extended discussion about each item in the list. As such, any micronations that are discussed in any detail in this article should be discussed because that helps illustrate a point related to the general concept of micronations, or because it is an ur-example of a class of micronations, rather than to explain a point about that particular micronation.

Yes, this article is not the place to list everyone's pet micronation. We have the list article List of micronations for that, inked in this article already. Meters (talk) 08:34, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Erroneous Link[edit]

Citation #26 is an article on Pizza Hut and has nothing to do with the subject. Epsilontau5 (talk) 06:25, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
