  • Hello Ivo, I'm from Vietnam and I'm using your useful app, it's really a great app! But I have a warning to you that your app is capturing the name of an archipelago on the South China Sea as "SanSha". This is a false information and may cause political trouble in this area. More importantly, the Vietnam government is planning to block your app in Vietnam if you do not change from "Sansha" name to "Paracel Islands" name.

    If you research carefully, you will find that "Paracel Islands" is a popular name that has been around for a long time of mankind and it is used by many countries around the world, so it will not matter when you use it with instead of "SanSha".

    Vietnam is one of the countries where people must suffer terrible storms from the ocean many time of year! As a fan of Windy, I suggest you rename "SanSha" to "Paracel Islands" for the honest people here!

    Thanks & Best regards

    Let's leave political topics out of the Windy forum please and focus on the discussion of weather.



  • @ivo The following is wrong. THIS IS NOT MACEDONIA!

  • openstreetmap is "washing their hands" of the whole matter.
    As they say here:
    https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Macedonia#Macedonia_is_Macedonia

    "... OpenStreetMap is not a battleground for the Macedonia naming dispute. "

    In the United Nations:
    http://www.un.org/en/member-states/#gotoT

    By resolution A/RES/47/225 of 8 April 1993, the General Assembly decided to admit as a Member of the United Nations the State being provisionally referred to for all purposes within the United Nations as "The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia"

    You are absolutely correct. The General Assembly decided to admit as a Member of the United Nations the State being provisionally referred to for all purposes within the United Nations as "The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia"
    Thank you for your confirmation.

    So gentleman (and women), you now have a definitive reply regarding the positions of both Windy as well as OpenStreetMap on this type of situation so I hope that this is the end of the matter on this forum.

    I understand that this remains a contentious issue from different perspectives, but Windy is primarily a weather site, so once again let's leave political topics out of the Windy forum please and focus on the discussion of weather.

    Windy also does not wish to be a battleground for these type of disputes.

    Further discussion of these type of issues should be directed to the OpenStreetMap Forum here: https://forum.openstreetmap.org/index.php > scroll down & select > users: (the relevant country for your dispute and/or question)

    Здравствуйте!
    Хотел бы поблагодарить вас за прекрасное приложение! Но я указал место, которое меня интересует, и где точность вашего прогноза всегда низкая. Это предгорье. В этом месте часто более тепло, чем у вас указано. В этом месте в большом количестве растут такие деревья как инжир и гранат, но точность этой территории у вас температур низкая, и часто указано как холодное место.
    Если можно уделите этому предгорью более внимание, и сделайте прогноз для него более точным.
    Как видите, некоторые другие приложения показывают погоду в этом месте точнее, но сами приложения уступают вашему по реализации и качеству.
    Спасибо вам большое за работу!
    С уважением, Валерий.

    Hello!
    I would like to thank you for a wonderful app! But I have indicated a place that interests me, and where the accuracy of your forecast is always low. It's foothills. This place is often warmer than you indicated. In this place, a large number of trees grow such as figs and pomegranates, but the accuracy of this area you have a low temperature, and often indicated as a cold place.
    If you can pay more attention to this foothills, and make a forecast for it more accurate.
    As you can see, some other applications show the weather in this place more accurately, but the applications themselves are inferior to yours in implementation and quality.
    Thank you very much for your work!
    Sincerely, Valery.!
