Name change: Macedonia

As of yesterday, the FYROM has officially changed its name to (Republic of) North Macedonia. Can this be changed on PGC as well?

I think you just have to wait. First step is official change of name. Second step is implement it to After that tools on Project-GC will not work for this state, so it will be necessary to change it here. IMHO it is not possible to change it here earlier, because the tools may not work properly until change the name. There was a similar situation recently when Czech Republic changed to Czechia.

At it never was fyrom, they just called it macedonia.
We will see. Think the name has to be an official name in the UN list. Then GC will perhaps rename it. But then it becomes a technical issue with all the caches been found etc etc.
