Serbian vs Yugoslavian

Hi, twice you have edited the Niko Bellic page to change his nationality from Yugoslavian to Serbian. The truth is that when Niko was born, Serbia didn't exist. Serbia, along with some other countries that are now independent were a part of a nation called Yugoslavia. So Niko is actually Yugoslavian. I don't know much about all this, but I do know enough to be able to say that Niko is Yugoslavian. Thanks! Biggest GTA Fan EverTalk 07:01, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi. This is hyungwoo0312. He was born in Yugoslavia. Yes, I know that. But Yugoslavia has split to lots of different countries. Serbia is one of them. Niko is from present day Serbia. That's why I changed the nationality to Serbian.
I understand that. If you see the page history, you will see that you're not the only user to change it to Serbian. Many users have done this. As described here, he is Yugoslavian, but of Serbian descent. I don't really know if that's correct, so fell free to discuss it, and when I remember I will ask my friend about it (who is also of a Serbian background).

I suppose his nationality should be the place he originated in (which was Yugoslavia at the time), rather than where he lives now (which is Liberty City). My place of birth is also somewhere that doesn't exist anymore, because boundaries change etc, but I still have to put what it was called at the time. We don't say historical figures were born in Iraq, we say Mesopotamia (cos thats what it was called at the time). 2,000 years ago Bethlehem was in Judah, not Palestine. If you REALLY needed to explain what Yugoslavia is now, then in the text (not infobox) you could say "Yugoslavia (now Serbia)". Gboyers talk 13:42, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
I asked my friend and i can confirm that you would call Niko Yugoslavian from Serbia, so I assume that A-Dust is right (on the talk page) that a more technical (and better) way of saying that is Yugoslavian, of Serbian descent. Biggest GTA Fan EverTalk 06:21, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
