What is the reason that "Cyprus" is categorized as "Middle East" rather than as "Europe" ? Or would it be possible to have Cyprus in both categories ?

As an island it's certainly open to debate. The CIA World Factbook describes it as Middle East. If you have some other, more authoritative source, that describes it as Europe, I'd be willing to change it. -- David 04:14, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Cyprus is part of the European Union; it has adopted the Euro as currency. Sport clubs participate in European championships. Would it be an option to categorize Cyprus both in "Europe" and "Middle East" - in a similar way as Russia is categorized as "Europe" and "Asia" ? On the other hand, Turkey is only categorized as "Europe" even though the majority of its landmass is in Asia ... Archie02 13:06, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Done. I noticed that both of the articles for Cyprus listed the continent as Europe. -- David 17:54, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick action. Should this discussion page be deleted ? Archie02 20:44, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
You're welcome. No, like Wikipedia, we'll leave it. -- David 03:14, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
