Untitled[edit]

I don't know how to do this myself, and would appreciate some help.

When I typed "Hobbema" I was taken directly to Hobbema, Alberta. Of course I was looking for Hobbema the painter. Since the location in Alberta is just a tiny hamlet, while the painter is well-known and widely admired, I would think search should go directly to Meindert Hobbema the painter. Seems like a disambiguation page would be helpful, too.

The way it is now, someone who wants to read about Hobbema the painter can't find the page. There is no link from the Hobemma, Alberta page. (Of course you could go out of Wikipedia to Google, and type "Hobbema" in Google, and find the Wikipedia article there.)

Thanks, Paugus (talk) 20:01, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing this out. I (and apparently some other editors as well) was unaware of Meindert Hobbema. I have changed the article Hobbema into a disambiguation page with links to both meanings. Indefatigable (talk) 19:42, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Census data[edit]

I'm confused by the census data - stating there are no people and no residences there. This can't be true? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.180.219.37 (talk) 16:56, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Yep, it is confusing, but is what the 2011 census reports. Perhaps StatCan can explain. Hwy43 (talk) 05:50, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Article title[edit]

With no other use of Maskwacis, shouldn't the article be located at that title? 117Avenue (talk) 22:43, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Sure. I would not oppose. Hwy43 (talk) 22:48, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
