Quoting from central Wikia: "When referring to the United States, please use "U.S."; that is the more common style in that country, is easier to search for automatically, and we want one uniform style on this. When referring to the United States in a long abbreviation (USA, USN, USAF), periods should not be used."
I wonder whether we should therefore make "United States" the page name. We already have "Category:United States". Over to its residents, I guess!

- I just dropped in to write a rquest like this only. Yes, what Robin Patterson is suggesting is a good idea. --Bhadani 11:02, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
- We could (and have U.S.A. redirect), but I think that most of the time when people talk about where a city is, they use City, State, U.S.A., rather than City, State, United States. So, the article page name U.S.A. will probably be used more often. Usually, I'm all for naming consistency, but in this case the inconsistency works for me. (And I'm probably partly responsible, so it makes sense.) However, I'm willing to change either, if that helps other users. --CocoaZen 14:45, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
