We have to split 'Republic of China' and 'Taiwan'. Any ideas? -- ChongDae (talk) 05:06, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

You mean country and island? This object is about the country, island has its own at Q22502 (there's also "Geography of Taiwan at Q22528). If you spot an interwiki that doesn't fit, you can transfer it manually. — Yerpo Eh? 13:56, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
  • This item should probably be labeled "Republic of China", as some Wikidata statements won't make sense with it labeled "Taiwan". For example, we wouldn't want to say that the Second Sino-Japanese War was between the Empire of Japan and Taiwan. --Yair rand (talk) 15:13, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
Our naming convention says that we use the most common name. Most people know the country as Taiwan and not as Republic of China. As a result Taiwan should be the proper label. ChristianKl (talk) 19:50, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
The topic the item is dealing with has spanned multiple "most common names", with only one name shared among the eras, that being the Republic of China. Perhaps there should be three different items covering the topic, "Republic of China", "Taiwan", and "Republic of China" for 1912-1949, with the latter two being just eras/temporal facets and the actual content linking to the former? --Yair rand (talk) 06:37, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Q13426199 also exists for the historical 1912-1949 country. Some Wikipedias split the modern ROC with the historical ROC on the mainland (e.g. enwiki), others don't (e.g. zhwiki). Benlisquare (talk) 14:07, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
