Removing Redirect[edit]

I am removing the Redirect to List of the most populous counties in the United States since "Largest counties" could also mean "largest counties by area" or physical size, which is probably what it should mean. There should also be a List of the largest counties in the United States by area in Wikipedia, which by definition this pointer should redirect to... Stevenmitchell (talk) 22:56, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Trying to Create Disambiguation Page[edit]

I am in the process of trying to create a disambiguation page since "largest counties in the United States" could apply to a number of more specific issues such as by size (area), population, by population density, etc... Stevenmitchell (talk) 23:19, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

So wait till you have something to put on the page before blanking it. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 23:42, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Plus, do we really want a lower case title at this page? Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 23:43, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Certainly "largest" could well be interpreted as meaning "largest in area" or "largest in population", but would anyone really think it meant "with the greatest density of population"? JamesBWatson (talk) 07:09, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
My intention at the time of creating a disambiguation page was to also refer to a "largest counties by size" list which is nearly impossible to find in Wikipedia. There are existing tables of information on this in here but I have been unable to find them again... But by creating a disambiguation page, the user would have a choice about the information to pursue - which would currently be a deadend for them... Stevenmitchell (talk) 19:53, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
