Source discussion[edit]

Effect of city status[edit]

There are some issues concerning the effect of the recent discovery that Gibraltar is a city on this article. There have been edits about this by User:Encyloedit, User:Anvib, User:Chrism, User:MaineCrab, User:Moondragon21, User:Asbtrl361442, and me.

Is the city considered contained by the British Overseas Territory, or is it a status accorded to the British Overseas Territory itself?

Has there been a town of Gibraltar recognized within the BOT before now?

Is the BOT now named City of Gibraltar?

I'm assuming that in any case, the BOT and city are coterminus (contain exactly the same territory). Otherwise, the issue is pretty trivial.

Judging from the published official list of cities, I would say City of Gibraltar is a city within a British Overseas Territory named Gibraltar. And that the BOT status of the region is more significant than the city status, making that the primary topic of the article.

  Since BREXIT, it is not part of the European Union, but is a participant in the EU–UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

Semi-protected edit request on 1 June 2023[edit]

Change Monarch of Gibraltar, Charles III was coronated as king of England, but the Title of King(Monarch) is on Spanish King Felipe VI on the Wikipedia page you can even see it. I request inmediate change due to Charles III not having the official title "King of Gibraltar" (talk) 11:34, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Not done The King of Spain is not the "King of Gibraltar" (there is no such title); Gibraltar is a territory of the UK (albeit disputed by Spain) whose head is King Charles III. The article explains this in more detail. Tony Holkham (Talk) 11:51, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 28 June 2023: Britain -> Great Britain[edit]

Change "Britain" to "Great Britain" (talk) 19:55, 28 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Not done for now: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{Edit semi-protected}} template. Mattdaviesfsic (talk) 19:58, 28 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This request really should just have been rejected as incorrect. Editors are supposed to establish consensus before requesting an edit if the matter is controversial, but there's no controversy over the meaning of Great Britain, is there? This just looks like a mistake. Great Britain is an island and a former country, and the uses of "Britain" in this article are not references to either of those.
