Минатата недела имав една преписка со луѓето од mysql
кои се задолжени за веб страницата mysql.com.

Сакав да се регистрирам на форумите на mysq.com
и во листата на држави видов дека не напишале како
"The fromer yugoslav republic of Macedonia" (излистани под Т)

се напраив луд демек не сум ја нашол Македонија во листата
и им пишав да ја додадат

Во продолжение ви ги праќам разменетите пораки

I must say that you are using interesting list as a reference, the
official country names defined by the UN.
Does this technically mean that if a country is not a member of the UN
will not be listed on mysql.com?

The other more important thing is the fact that you've listed our
country under the letter "t". Which country's name begins with a
definite article "the"?

The usual practice, applied to most cases is to list our country as
"Macedonia, the former Yugoslav Republic of" according to the ISO 3166
[1] standard.

To avoid further confusions, I kindly ask for your understanding and I
hope you'll change the existing reference to the proposed one as of
ISO 3166.

BTW: In the list there are some non existing countries such as:
Yugoslavia, Serbia and Montenegro...
