Comment[edit]

884K is WAY too big--should be broken up, probably by letter range. Niteowlneils 03:38, 21 August 2005 (UTC)

I agree. --Revolución (talk) 16:57, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
I also agree... I have "decided" to work on it a bit. My progress is noted at my workspace I hope it works out. --Robert Harrison|Talk 23:24, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
I've already uploaded the Lists of places for about 5 other states, and plan to do all the rest (just a matter of copying and pasting once per article). I don't think you should break them up by letter. The simpler option would be to break them into two articles, one from A-M, another from N-Z. There are plenty of other huge articles that nobody complains about (see: Special:Longpages) — BRIAN0918 • 2005-08-28 23:28
I must say that disagree with you, Brian. The article (and others) would definately benefit from being split at least once if not multiple times. Please do not assume that the pages you are working on are being singled out. It just happens to be the current largest. I plan on over time attempting to bring all the top 100 or so articles down in size (without any substantial loss of content). Though with school just a day away, I might get side-tracked.
So I pose a question, are you against a break up by letter? The reason I ask this is that I am about 45% done with source code for the A-Z lists for this article. I wish to finish what I started but I do not want my work to be fruitless. BTW: I think it is a great idea that lists of this sort exist. It proves your statement about how much Wikipedia is missing.

I'd say we break up the article into three parts, possibly A-L ,M-S, and T-Z --Revolución (talk) 16:11, 29 August 2005 (UTC)

Duplicates[edit]

There are hundreds of duplicates in these lists that need to be removed. Is there a project to fix these types of issues? CPAScott 19:53, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Redlinks[edit]

Why do they individual articles still have hundreds of redlinks, after over 5 years of Wikipedia's existence? At least turn them into stubs so people from those places can expand them. Badagnani (talk) 22:17, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Why does this exist?[edit]

There already are separate, and much better, and COMPLETE articles on "list of villages in new york" and so on for each type of division of new york. What is the reason of this poorly edited, redundant, ill-concieved article/list? I will be nominating for AfD if no one comes up with a good reason why this should exist.Camelbinky (talk) 00:30, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
