Area[edit]

Hi everyone, As part of the NS Project (which I didn't even know existed until know - this is great news for us Bluenosers!), I just thought I'd bring attention to a major oversight in this article: Queens County is not 16.86 km². The Seaside Adjunct of Kejimkujik National Park, located in Queens County, is already about 22 km². [1] Using the population density and the population figures on the page, which seem to be accurate, I have calcuated that the county's total area is likely around 2392.45 km². However, I was not able to find an exact figure anywhere on the Internet; then again, I haven't much time at the moment to do much searching. So, if someone else could find out that info and fix this error, that'd be great. Keith Davies Lehwald 21:23, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

There. Just added the Nova Scotia Project Template. That should help a little bit. Keith Davies Lehwald 21:29, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

I fixed it... you go here: http://www12.statcan.ca/english/profil01/CP01/Index.cfm?Lang=E to get all that kinda stats data. WayeMason 21:55, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Infobox deal[edit]

I changed this page back to the town info box, because we may have to change the formating to conform with the national town infobox template soon, so it will be a lot easier to do if everything is templated. WayeMason 01:57, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Queens-logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Queens-logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 03:42, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Request Move 2014[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Not moved. There is clear consensus that proposed title is not sufficiently unambiguous. (non-admin closure) Aloha27 (talk)

Region of Queens Municipality, Nova ScotiaQueens, Nova Scotia – The name should reflect the single name like Halifax, Nova Scotia --Relisted. Armbrust The Homunculus 19:58, 17 May 2014 (UTC) Easternhfx (talk) 12:30, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Support as per WP:CONCISE unless you can find any reason not to Red Slash 04:17, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Unfortunately I didn't see this move request until just now. The reason to not make the move is that the area is not simply known as Queens, Nova Scotia. This request was a pointy nomination because the user does not like that the Halifax Municipality changed what it calls itself to just Halifax. So I propose moving it back to the name that people actually call it. -DJSasso (talk) 12:59, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose per Djsasso, and @Red Slash:, please do some research before accepting/passing a SPA-generated RM next time.Skookum1 (talk) 06:10, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
    • I still don't see any sourcing either way, so if in doubt, WP:CONCISE. Red Slash 22:50, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose per others, and I suspect the disruptive instigator of these requests may be a sockpuppet of a certain someone. Citobun (talk) 13:38, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Yeah I was wondering that myself. Maybe its time to put in a sockcheck request. -DJSasso (talk) 14:34, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

RE: Move request closed[edit]

I hope I didn't step on any toes in closing the request for move (non-admin). Had about enough of the disruptor. discussion here Regards, Aloha27 (talk) 14:18, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Requested move 7 January 2017[edit]

The result of the move request was: moved as proposed, since there are no objections and the reasons for moving are valid. (non-admin closure) Bradv 05:09, 16 January 2017 (UTC)


Region of Queens Municipality, Nova ScotiaRegion of Queens MunicipalityWP:CANSTYLE#Article names: The provincial disambiguator for this uniquely named place is unnecessary. There is no other topic in the world that could compete for primary usage. Previous discussion above reaffirmed this as common name but failed to address the need for disambiguation. Hwy43 (talk) 15:17, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Agreed. Cape Breton Regional Municipality does not have NS after it for that matter. My understanding is the province or state only follows if there are several places sharing a name, ie Halifax, Halifax and Halifax WayeMason (talk) 17:58, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
I support this. It looks like it should have been this way anyways. Air.light (talk) 23:27, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
There is an interesting discussion around Municipal DIstricts (Or District Municipalities) over here Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Nova_Scotia#Municipal_districts_are_actually_district_municipalities_.28potential_article_moves.29. This discussion makes me wonder of the name of those articles should properly be the full name (ie: Municipality of the District of Chester), it would be consistent. WayeMason (talk) 13:06, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I agree with User Hwy43. Peter K Burian (talk) 23:28, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Yep. I concur. Go for it.   Aloha27  talk  16:17, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Yes. (just notice I already voted oops) WayeMason (talk) 20:36, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Looks like form the above template that we can do a non-admin closure once the clock rings seven days, so less than 40 hours from now. Hwy43 (talk) 01:30, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
Update: I tried to move this over the redirect and try a non-admin closure but the redirect wouldn't give, so let's await an admin to drop by and close the discussion formally. Hwy43 (talk) 02:42, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
