    personal profile regions

    To Lounge Admin.

    Not sure where this should be posted but here goes. On the personal profiles pages you ask us to let you know if our regions etc do not appear. I live in Coin (near Malaga) Spain. The region is Andalucia which does not appear in your lists. In fact there are no Spanish regions shown.

    Good day to you from Andalucia!!

    Re: personal profile regions

    It would be very helpful to us if you could give us a correct list of all the regions of Spain - in Spanish. That way, we would have the correct information available to all our Spanish Loungers.

    I am English, living in Spain. I will undertake this task but you need to give me a couple of days just to make sure I have got them right. Don't want to upset my adopted country!

    Re: personal profile regions

    As promised - here are the regions of Spain. You should be aware that the Basque region (EUSKADI/PAIS VASCO) is disputed. The Basque people call it Euskadi and are fighting for independence from Spain (or at least ETA their armed wing is- hence the bombings and shootings). The Spanish call it Pais Vasco. If you put it in you will offend many Basques and if you leave it out you will offend some non-Basque Spanish. Technically, it is still part of Spain so I think it ought to go in. Your call.

    ANDALUCIA
    ARAGON
    ASTURIAS
    CANTABRIA
    CASTILLA-LA MANCHA
    CASTILLA-LEON
    CATALUNA
    EXTREMADURA
    EUSKADI/PAIS VASCO
    GALICIA
    ISLAS BALEARES
    LA RIOJA
    MADRID
    MURCIA
    NAVARRA
    VALENCIA

    That about does it

    Cheers

    Re: personal profile regions

    Thanks very much! One small (preventitive) question: do any of them have accents?

    Re: personal profile regions

    Good point - yes some do. We get used to ignoring them because of plain text word processing but you are right - they should be shown. Here goes:

    The following have acute accents:
    Leon over the o
    Pais over the i
    Aragon over the o
    Andalucia over the i

    Cataluna has a tilde (~) over the n

    There you go.

    I've heard Spanish speakers, and they all have accents <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
