Ok, so I know there's not too many people here yet, but hopefully you guys who are will give me your input!

Here's the deal. I'm creating the tags for the comm, which means gathering up allllllllllll the countries out there. But because I think organization is vital to things like this, I have to sort them accordingly. But my problem is the Americas.

Right now, I've got it reading as "location: americas[north] - somecountry" "location: americas[north] - somecountry (somecity or someprovince)." I did north, and south. But now, there's the middle chunk. A page on wiki says it's accepted to refer to Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean as "Middle America," but I feel kinda odd calling what I know as "Central America," Middle America. And I'm so confused about where Mexico goes, given things like this: "Geophysically, the [Central American] region starts at the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Mexico (namely the Mexican states of Campeche, Chiapas, Tabasco, Quintana Roo, and Yucat√°n). The United Nations geoscheme includes Mexico in Central America; conversely, the European Union excludes both Mexico and Belize from the area. Geopolitically however, Mexico is usually considered a part of the North American region." So in that sense, just shoving it in "Middle America" seems like a simple answer, but... what do you guys think?? Do you like or dislike the idea of "americas[middle]" in the tags, with Mexico, Central America, and Caribbean locations listed under it?

Thanks for your help! ^^
