Not to ruin Hammerfest's day, but isn't Tiksi further north, with an population estimated at 5,100? pgdudda 03:34, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
True, but according to the Tiksi article, the town is really loosing population fast, less than half are left since 1989...so there are probably less than 5,000 inhabitants now...Orcaborealis 16:31, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
Tiksi had in 2008 a population estimated at 5427 (see russian wikipedia), and it will still be the northernmost settlement with a population more than 5000.Karriuss (talk) 13:19, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Wikipedia, of any language, is not a source that can be cited on Wikipedia. Manxruler (talk) 20:35, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
But it still doesn´t change fact. Hammerfest is not the northernmost settlement with more than 5000 inhabitants.Karriuss (talk) 08:22, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
A fact obtained without a source on Wikipedia. Manxruler (talk) 12:14, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Just googled "Tiksi population", got mostly wikis, the few sources that at least has a named author says "under 5,000" and "3,000". Manxruler (talk) 12:21, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
There are many nice photos in this article. The corresponding Norwegian (bokmål, at least) article has a spectacular panorama photo attributed to Per Harald Olsen. I don't know anything about getting a photo to Commons nor about nominating it for Featured. But someone should. - Hordaland (talk) 05:27, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
