Can I ask that whoever stops changing my thread titles to "UK" instead of "England". We are separate countries, not different states of the same country. The UK is a union of countries under the same sovereignity.

We should settle for:
London, England, UK
Manchester, England, UK

Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
Glasgow, Scotland, UK

I suppose, technically, yes. But just "UK" isn't correct.

I've been changing it. I'm the one that largely keeps consistency on the thread titles as they come into metalsetlists. A long time ago, I made the following decision to standardize set list titles as such:

For US: band -- city, state abbr -- month nnxx, yyyy
For Non-US: band -- city, country_name -- month nnxx, yyyy

For country name, I usually take guidance from how a country is represented in the United Nations. England may be a separate country in a union of countries but Great Britain / UK is the one with the mission at the UN and a seat on the Security Council. The membership is listed at "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". See [url]http://www.un.org/members/list.shtml[/url]

We have similiar issues with shows in Canada and Spain. Take Spain for example. We have a couple of people who post reports for gigs in Basque Country. I usually change their country_name's to Spain for the same reason as I change England to UK. We're not trying to get into pissing contests, just trying to keep it simple.

They played Last Of The Wilds? How did they pull that off live?

Yes, but that makes sense. Basque Country isn't a country. It doesn't even officially exist anymore.

My country is called England. Has been since 927. Very likely always will be.

Never really listened to much Nightwish. Heard the song "Wish I Had an Angel" recently and I thought it was horribly poppy and just sucked all over the place, are all their songs like that, what's the attraction here?

I took a day to think this over and the impact on the archive, past and moving forward. Both of you contribute a lot to the site, and I've alway tried to listen to and accomodate our core. It's really not a big deal. If you all want British set lists tagged differently, that's fine by me. In the future, we'll handle the UK like:

band -- city, Scotland -- date
band -- city, England -- date
band -- city, Ireland -- date
band -- city, Wales -- date

I'll handle changing the set lists archive on the back end, just not today.
