Does this even exist anymore? Should we revamp entirely our africa related pages?

Yeah, it does. And yes, we should. ;))
Seriously, for the first time I have something of a clue regarding the countries of Africa. French Guinea exists indeed (under that very name, perhaps as Guinée). So does French Congo. At present the France template is pretty accurate, it seems. Did you reach Christophe? --IJzeren Jan 12:35, 12 Apr 2005 (PDT)

I didn't reach Christophe, but instead of deleting the text, I just hid it using <!-- and --> . That way we can return them with great ease should we decide to. We'll need to add Guinée to the list. BoArthur

History

According to Islamic Kingdom of Guinea, the separation from France in 1956 was similar to *here*, and the Islamic Revolution didn't happen until later. Perhaps that's when Maghreb supported them, and relations today are therefore strained. Benkarnell 09:23, 25 January 2008 (PST)

The question is, where did you get your information, because all edits on IKG are from you. BoArthur 12:56, 25 January 2008 (PST)
It's all copied and pasted from http://www.geocities.com/flagsofillbethisad/gu-rep.html. My sole creative input was the map. Benkarnell 12:58, 25 January 2008 (PST)
The question is then, where did Ferko get this information. Jan? Padraic? BoArthur 15:39, 25 January 2008 (PST)
My best guess would be that he just made it up, since West Africa seems to have been one of his regions. [edit] Yes, on Conculture he wrote, "Yes, the Mussulmane reached west Africa *there* too, though as far as I know the only overly Islamic state in west Africa is Guinea" 11884. Kristian replied, "To be more precise, the Muhamedans never really reached the West African coastline. They were only really dominant in the inland savanah regions. The coastal region was where voodoo truly reigned before Christian missionaries arrived" 11886. Then Ferko wrote, "Hm. Well Guinea *there* is a more-or-less Islamic state. Not like Sanjak, but Islamic" 11888. Benkarnell 00:38, 28 January 2008 (PST)
What do you think of working in what I wrote, then, since it's somewhat of a hybrid between what Ferko came up with and what I would want for the area, anyway? BoArthur 07:03, 28 January 2008 (PST)
It can probably be harmonized. Maybe the Republic of Guinea was proclaimed in 1958 but the Islamic Revolution followed shortly afterward. I'm not sure how sacrosanct the QSS is in this case (it's on the website but apparently never discussed w/ anybody). Benkarnell 12:17, 28 January 2008 (PST)
I wrote a new version of the history to match your article here. I left both versions up, though, and I think it should stay that way until such time as Ferko himself should weigh in on the subject. Benkarnell 12:28, 30 January 2008 (PST)
