wow? I got there ahead of anyone "attacking" my watchlist, LOL by converting USA to United States, and by adding United States where it was missing (where it was appropriate) ... Took "forever" to do it, I'd been inconsistent to the nth degree since May 2018 -- JUST finished that "cosmetic" change a week or two ago, but oh, it LOOKS so much nicer
EDITED para or two here
although during the process someone kindly emailed me to let me know it wasn't necessary ? required ? that USA was as acceptable as United States and quoted the WT Style manual at me
I read everything four times to be sure I understood what they were indicating and then I explained (tartly) it was necessary for me, it was grating on my nerves to have such disjointed location names .
I found this online -- "the abbreviated form of United States of America is USA" Preferred Abbreviation for United States (US or U.S.) ...
Thing is we are "going more international" and these "little details" are going to start mattering more --
I expect that if the locale for United States becomes required by WT to be United States of America -- and I am still alive and still working on WikiTree -- I will curse the day it was implemented and start converting 2000+ profiles ...
