verifiability questions[edit]

  • Is this actually a city? I know many tiny places are called "cities", but Rambot has also mislabelled many places cities, and those had to be manually fixed.
  • Is *anybody* still living there?
  • Is this place still incorporated?
  • So far the only non-census verification of this place is about a hundred years old. As for the census, I don't know where to look for that.
  • The county web site makes no mention of this "city". How can a county not know of a city in its midst?
  • Nothing on Google comes for this place, except the usual tertiary sources, that probably got the same census dump Rambot did.
  • Since Rambot failed to handle Perth, Walsh County, North Dakota (I split the article in two myself), how do we know all the information is about the correct Perth? Do we know if there's a third Perth in the state?

I actually think, that's its quite possible, that this is just a ghost town, and that there isn't even the 13 people claimed. --Rob 18:52, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

You simply cannot raid a Rambot article and expect to get an immediate reaction. This city exists, and is assigned postal code 58363. I can drive out there sometime this year if you are that concerned it isn't there. --AlexWCovington (talk) 22:49, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
That can be seen in List of ZIP Codes in North Dakota; it still has a post office, and likely rural routes out of that post office.
It appears on the current North Dakota state highway map (verified at least one the 2001-2002 one), and in its index (which only includes the incorporated cities).
It appears in the Census, and in the 2000 census (the source of the original addition of this article by the bot) and any named places in North Dakota that were not incorporated cities were called census-designated places. Gene Nygaard 14:06, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

Perth, Towner County, North Dakota → Perth, North Dakota – {reason for move} copied from the entry on the WP:RM page Someone inappropriately disambiguated an incorporated city and an unorganized township. The city should be placed here because it is a proper postal address. --AlexWCovington (talk) 22:41, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Support. Nobody is going to look for the township without putting "township" or an abbreviation in its name. BTW, AlexWCovington didn't quite hit it on the head. Perth is an incorporated city, and Perth Township in Walsh County is likely an organized township, or at least was at some time (the unorganized ones were usually not given names, but only referred to with designationa such as T162N R97W for the particular survey township--organized townships could include more than a survey township, too). —This unsigned comment was added by Gene Nygaard (talkcontribs) .Endorsed.Gene Nygaard
  • Support. I'm almost inclined to go ahead and move it back myself. olderwiser 20:08, 24 March 2006 (UTC)
    Next time, just do it. You'll save me work. ;) —Nightstallion (?) Seen this already? 07:58, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
