To be or not to be[edit]

I fear this article has not made it past the drawing board... Do we give it another try (if so, how?) Or do we say "Bye Felicia" and vfd it? Hobbitschuster (talk) 17:45, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

It does appear to be a 'Create a foundation and others will come to build it' attempt. It doesn't actually have anything for travel a few months after creation.
I am not in favor of limiting the ideas for articles, but things like this are much better served by Wikipedia. --Andrewssi2 (talk) 19:41, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Here we are almost half a year later. What do you say? Hobbitschuster (talk) 17:25, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Hyphenation of title?[edit]

I routinely add hyphens to adjectival clauses like "20th-century". "Century" in this context is not a noun such as it would be in the sentence "South Africa was governed under the apartheid system for most of the 20th century", but part of an adjective clause modifying the name "South Africa". So does anyone object to moving this article to 20th-century South Africa, and if so, why? Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:24, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

I'm changing the name, without prejudice to what will eventually happen to the article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:25, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

South Africa, an important WWII Ally?[edit]

In what way? A lot of the Afrikaners were Nazi sympathizers. What important things did they do for the Allies? Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:10, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

I believe English-speaking South Africans supported the Ally cause similar to the majorities in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. There was a South African presence in the North African battles against Rommel. But whether they were "important" is subjective and relative. Probably overstating in my opinion.

Probably almost as important an Ally as Nicaragua... Hobbitschuster (talk) 17:37, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Maybe just remove the word "important". Selfie City (talk) 19:59, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
