If "The Redlands" is mistaken[edit]

why Faith Church of the Redlands? --NE2 04:01, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Because they are mistaken. https://redlandrambles.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/redland-raised-logo-small.jpeg http://redlandelem.dadeschools.net/ 63.138.17.186 (talk) 15:08, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Multiple Issues reasoning[edit]

To explain the issues I've identified in the article:

  • The article relies heavily upon the About the Redland page, which strongly appears to be a self-published website. Are there any other sources that could be used, e.g. newspapers? What about the writings of Audubon and Fairchild that show their amazement, for example?
  • How was the population figure of 10,138 derived from the 2010 US Census, when the Census Bureau hasn't listed Redland as a CDP and defined any borders? What was the specific source used? Is the process of obtaining this figure a form of original research? Wikipedia articles themselves can not be used as a source - this is what the reference is currently suggesting.
  • Many of the cited links are broken. I cannot get anything out of the American FactFinder, for example - it sends me to Collier County, Florida whenever I put "Redland, Florida" into its search engine. The Historical Markers website is also broken.
  • Parts of the article sound like a travel guide, especially from the tone used.
  • The "climate" section sounds more like an "agriculture" section; there needs to be verifiable sources of what grows there, too.
