I am at a loss here! When did Hayti and Hispaniola merge into one state? --IJzeren Jan 05:39, 23 Aug 2005 (PDT)

They've been one state since the landings of the French, NeoFrancien and Louisiannan forces, Jan. I thought that was clear in the postings that we did. Padraic was the one that suggested the restoration of the Dessalines Imperium, bringing the whole island under one throne, etc. That's been the modus operandi of myself (and I believe strongly) Marc and Padraic since the get-go.

Ah, good! I must admit that I haven't followed everything as closely as I should. I knew that Hispaniola and Hayti both fell into civil war, that it was one great mess with several foreign powers interfering, but I wasn't aware of the actual creation of an empire under the name "Saint-Domingo". Anyway, it was not meant as any kind of criticism, just a question for my own enlightenment! ;) If it came across as criticism, I'm sorry for that. --IJzeren Jan 06:22, 23 Aug 2005 (PDT)
Not at all perceived as criticism, my good fellow. :) I figured you'd had a bit of things on your plate, and thus you hadn't followed very closely. I was concerned you had an objection...and I was concerned I'd done all that work on the flag and province map for NOTHING. Glad you're not. *sigh of relief* BoArthur 07:12, 23 Aug 2005 (PDT)


I hadn't noticed before Dan but why is the english version of the country name an "half & half" version ? Wouldn't it make more sense to pick one (somehow the spanish seem more possible) or use a name like "Saint-Dominic" ?

BTW, any thought about what I wrote in the flag's talk page ? --Marc Pasquin 17:18, 9 February 2006 (PST)

It could be just a quirk of English *there*? I was thinking more a franco-castilian cross, thus /S@~ domiNgo/ BoArthur 18:06, 9 February 2006 (PST)
