Demographics on foreign nationals[edit]

There have been several modifications concerning the percentage of foreign nationals in San Miguel, for some it is 50%, for others it is 5%, and after one correction that sets the data near the 50% comes another correction that sets its near 5%. Since this has been a matter of dispute, and no consensus has been reached, I propose that the last person who changed it, and future changes be accompanied by a link to a reliable reference (could be INEGI, if they have that information, or the city's official web page). If no data can be found, then it would be safer not to write any percentages, and just say "a considerable percentage of the population is foreign, mainly from the United States". --J.Alonso 14:52, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

POV edits[edit]

There have been several recent modifications to the history of san miguel which seem to promote a particular political/social agenda which is not neutral and certainly is not in keeping with encyclopedic content. Furthermore these changes are quite dramatic and really have nothing to do with the history of the town, which is the title of the section in which they are published. Someone needs to do a major clean-up of the article, because, franky, it is pretty much unreadable at this point, due to the addition of a large quantity of self-promotional trivia.--Tomasdiazh 15:51, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Website COI?[edit]

The website Falling In Love with San Miguel -- a free web blog, forum and hints for those interested in living or living in San Miguel, has been removed several times. The site is free and forums are extensive--wmhwilson

(Remember to sign posts to talk pages with ~~~~.) That particular link has been inserted several times by someone closely related to it, a conflict of interest that is strongly discouraged on Wikipedia. Aside from that it has several problems: its aimed is to promote a book, blogs fail the WP:EL guideline, as do forums, and Wikipedia is not a travel guide nor does it give advice (WP:NOT#TRAVEL). I removed the link. JonHarder talk 23:35, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Proposal to remove most of the last section[edit]

The final section detailing the changes to the community is totally not in keeping with wikipedia standards. It belongs in a forum discussion not here. I will remove it unless someone can summarize it in a couple of sentences Johnor (talk) 03:48, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

I am unable to edit section "20th century to the present"[edit]

There seems to be a problem (software? disk storage?) in the section 20th century to the present. My editing screen goes blank when I try to edit this section. --Wkboonec (talk) 18:56, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Contradictory information on weather/climate[edit]

The page has climate information both in form of the climate chart and the weather box, but the temperatures in the climate chart are -vastly- cooler than those in the weather box.

If this is because the weather box and the climate chart use data from separate reporting stations in/near San Miguel de Allende, each should indicate the sites of the their respective weather stations. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 313 TUxedo (talkcontribs) 10:37, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

They are indeed based on data from different sources. One is from MSN Weather UK, the other from the Servicio Nacional Metereologico, and this is indicated below each of the boxes. I'm not sure why the climate chart uses data sourced through the UK, but those ranges look suspicious to me - my experience in San Miguel Allende during the summer is much closer to what the SNM reports.

Sister Cities[edit]

The Spanish version of this article includes a more up-to-date list of San Miguel's Sister Cities, could someone add them up? I'm not that Wikipedia-savvy to do it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.234.118.132 (talk) 00:39, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
