Kenosha[edit]

  • At my request, administrator RHaworth moved Kenosha, Wisconsin to Kenosha. There is no other city by that name in this country, and since it is a well-known city, and one of the largest on the Lake Michigan coast, the state name is not required. I just figured I would let you know why I was undoing your edit. Lord Laitinen (talk) 23:09, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
    • In my edit summary for the article move, I included a link to WP:USPLACE, which contains the agreed guidelines for naming US cities. Here's a quote of the relevant part:
Articles on populated places in the United States are typically titled Placename, State (the "comma convention"). (...) Cities listed in the AP Stylebook as not requiring the state modifier in newspaper articles have their articles named [[City]] unless they are not the primary or only topic for that name. In other cases, this guideline recommends following the "comma convention" as described above.
So it doesn't matter that Kenosha, Wisconsin, is the only city of that name. The guidelines says that all US cities should use the [[name, state]] format, excepting only certain major cities listed in the AP stylebook (e.g. Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, Dallas). Please return the article title to the agreed format. Colonies Chris (talk) 23:25, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
Chris, do you know anything as to why the Kenosha Facebook location page title got moved along with the Wikipedia title? MikeM2011 (talk) 00:10, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
I think this must be one of the many FB Community Pages automatically generated from a Wikipedia article. There's an article about it here "Facebook Links Profiles to Pages, Taps Wikipedia for Community Pages " . So when the WP article's name was changed, so was the FB page, it seems.
