Proposed merge of Continental America[edit]

I propose to merge Continental America to this article. Arguably the issue is actually dealt with in full here... and whether "Continental America" as opposed to "Continental United States" even rates as a plausible redirect is another question. In any case, the entire difference between the two terms can be summed up in one or two sentences; there seems to be no need for a separate article. --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 22:15, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Support - Clear fork (but probably not an intentional CFORK), as Continental United States was merged here years ago, and this was split/created without any previous discussion. CIR may also be an issue with this user, as their edits have been increasingly problematic of late. - BilCat (talk) 00:17, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Support - concur with Bilcat, it's a redundant fork. Safrolic (talk) 23:34, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Support – there is no need to have a separate article for 'Continental America'. —Ntmamgtw (talk) 15:23, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
  • merge As an Alaskan it's hard to overstate how much I hate it when people use "continental" when they mean the contiguous states, ignoring the obvious fact that Alaska is very much on the same continent. Of course that's just my opinion but I believe the nominator makes a compelling case for merging, since the two terms mean almost the same thing and explaining the difference in one article is trivially simple (and already done).

 Done As the entire content of that page is arguably summarized in the lede already here, I merely redirected. --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 23:54, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
