The region map needs an update as it has 4 colour coded sections but only 3 corresponding sections. 17:54, 10 August 2015 (UTC)


Suggested fix to an issue with two of the Central Thailand articles

Swept in from the pub
Although it appears as two different articles on this map, all of that info is only in the Chao Phraya Basin article

I noticed that the article Chao Phraya Basin is actually both about that region and the Bangkok metro region. This is very confusing. I suggest resolving this by changing the article name of Chao Phraya Basin to Chao Phraya Basin and the Bangkok metro region + color both on those region in one color in this map.

What do you think should be done about this issue? ויקיג'אנקי (talk) 12:51, 22 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

Right now Bangkok Metropolitan Area is a redirect to Central Thailand, but the same name is in the list of regions of that same Central Thailand article. Another solution could be "make Bangkok Metropolitan Area a real article that contains part of the info from the present Chao Phraya Basin article". But whatever is chosen, something has to change. --FredTC (talk) 13:20, 22 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
To me, "Chao Phraya Basin and the Bangkok metro region" seems ghastly. Just fix the redirect so Bangkok Metropolitan Area points to Chao Phraya Basin.
We have Metro New York, Metro Cebu & several others, plus Metropolitan Rome & Metropolitan Naples. Use a title along those lines? Pashley (talk) 01:04, 27 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
(Parenthetically, Metro New York is a mess, as it's breadcrumbed to [[New York {state]] but includes suburban New Jersey and Connecticut up to the New Haven area, and my arguments to resolve the problem by making the article an extra-region and turning the New York State part of the metro area into Downstate New York, as with my proposal to turn Middle East into an extra-region article and separate out West Asia as the region that's breadcrumbed to Asia, have frustratingly fallen upon deaf ears every time, so it's not a good example of anything except for irregularity in this site's breadcrumb navigation structure.)

Added an article for "Bangkok Metropolitan Area". Hope this is okay. --Renek78 (talk) 03:08, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply
