Ft. Lauderdale[edit]

Thanks for putting that list in ABC order. That was very badly needing to be done and was on a to-do list in the back of my mind! great job! happy editing Butnotthehippo 07:17, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

MLA links on Fort Lauderdale, Florida[edit]

You added a couple of links for MLA data on the Fort Lauderdale page, but the first two were mangled (the links redirect to the index page of the MLA site). I discovered the problem when I reformatted all the references to conform to the Manual of Style. Right now, I have them titled "Modern Language Association (data set 1)" and "Modern Language Assocation (data set 2)", since I don't know exactly what you were pointing to when you added them. Could you take a look, and fix the links and give them appropriate titles? Thanks! Horologium t-c 21:05, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

RE:I changed it months ago. Just so you know, if you didn't already. Heh! :) OxyMoronMinusOxy t-c 02:45, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

EPodunk statistics[edit]

I noticed you have been busy adding statistics on minority populations to the Broward County cities. I like the information you are adding, but could you change the format a bit? I have reworded the Deerfield Beach and Fort Lauderdale entries for grammatical precision, and will be following up on several others. If you could use the format I used for the Fort Lauderdale article, I'd be thankful. The format you are using now is informative but it's a bit clunky. Horologium t-c 04:08, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

RE: Sure. I realized later that something wasn't quite right grammatically, but I suppose I was just rushing to put all the entries down. I have no problem following the format. I'll take a look and try to make the rest of the future entries around the format/have better grammar. If for some reason it still seems off, feel free to edit away. Thanks for pointing it out.

Weston, Florida[edit]

I went ahead and reverted all the way back to your version prior to the other editor vandalizing the article, because your new edit still contained vandalism and I could not revert the vandal's edits. When dealing with multiple vandalism events, select the last good version, choose edit, and then save the old version. That will eliminate all intermediate edits.

Orphaned non-free image (File:Coconut Grove-Demographics.jpg)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Coconut Grove-Demographics.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. FileBot (talk) 00:32, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Coconut Grove[edit]

Oxy - I see you have really developed an interest in demographics in the last month. At least those from City-Data.com. I reverted your prior edit because you had demographics taking up one third of the article. A bit much. I would be leary about relying too much on City-Data. You yourself see the conflict in numbers between them and the City of Miami. Where did they come up with "Coco Grove" ? I think they are too new and too commercial to be relied upon. Also, I don't see the purpose in splitting the Grove into two parts. Yes, I know the city of Miami does this split on their website. We should look into why they do this. Anyway, how about revising the demographics to just focus on the entire Grove ? GroveGuy (talk) 17:45, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

It's completely cool. I suppose I did get carried away, as it was pretty lengthy. That's why I attempted to re-edit the demographics in a way where I thought we both could agree upon. I realize that city-data isn't the best of the best, at least when it comes to demographics of a neighborhood, however, I've found it rather accurate in configuring other information about municipalities. Also, it's the only website I've found that even has visual or pie chart demographics for city neighborhoods in general. I think it was ridiculous for the official Miami website to split Coconut Grove as well. I personally think there was a political/"desirable area for housing" reasoning for doing so (either some psuedo-political correctness to represent that there is a non-Hispanic white majority in a section of Miami, or a hidden agenda to show prospective buyers where they want potential residents to live/buy homes...if you know what I mean). But I digress. Anyhow, if I find a website that shows the race/ethnic percentages for all of Coconut Grove, I'd be more than willing to simply use that one, instead of the whole NE/SW Grove demographics. :) OxyMoronMinusOxy (talk) 21:32, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Miami-Government-Center.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Miami-Government-Center.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. J Milburn (talk) 18:16, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

SW 154th Avenue, Davie, Florida, United States.[edit]

So you do photo request? I have been trying to collect a photo of the lot at SW 154th Avenue, Davie, Florida, United States (see here where the South Florida Temple is going to be built. If you live anywhere near that can you take a photo for me?--ARTEST4ECHO (talk/contribs) 18:29, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

Please, when you change or add information to an article, like you did for the population percentages in the Miami article, cite the source in the article. Placing the source information in the edit summary doesn't work very well, as it will later be very difficult to track down where the information came from. Citations are used in infoboxes when necessary. It is important to have in-line citations for population numbers and percentages, because I frequently see anon IPs changing them, and without citations for the numbers, I cannot tell if the edits are vandalism without searching for a reliable source. -- Donald Albury 12:05, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

"Language" source[edit]

Please ensure that the links from MLA that you're adding actually lead back to a useful page. I tried two states - Michigan and Georgia - and wound up at dead ends in both cases. I removed the Michigan addition altogether because I couldn't confirm the data, plus you described the statistics as applying to California, not Michigan, in a couple of places. Thanks.

If you do it in a way that makes it clear to the user - when they arrived at the cited page - that they need to just add a bit more info, that's okay. The problem arises when they wind up at a dead end with no way to navigate out of it. JohnInDC (talk) 03:37, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
