U.S. state templates

Wikipedia:WikiProject U.S. states/state templates lists and displays all 50 U.S. state (and additional other) templates. It potentially can be used for ideas and standardization. //MrD9 07:14, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Formatting this template

I finally got the seal to align all the way to the right, and the flag and seal are now centered in their own boxes! Also enlarged the text overall to make it readable (it was somewhat microscopic in some areas). Hope the format change makes it better for all.  :) --Ebyabe 16:21, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Standardization of state templates

There is currently an ongoing discussion regarding standardization of state templates (primarily regarding layout and styling) at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. states/state templates. An effort was made earlier this year to standardize Canadian province templates (which mostly succeeded). Lovelac7 and I have already begun standardizing all state templates. If you have any concerns, they should be directed toward the discussion page for state template standardization. Thanks! — Webdinger BLAH | SZ 22:41, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

The state seal has been removed as a result of a consensus (that several state seal images are copyrighted and protected by fair use, meaning that state seal images should be used as sparsely as possible) reached at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. states/state templates. If you'd like to challenge the consensus, reply on the aforementioned talk page. Please do not edit the state seal back in, as that will simply block the ongoing standardization process. Thank you! ;) — Webdinger BLAH | SZ 01:51, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Palm Bay

I'm moving Palm Bay to the large cities category. It has over 100k people and is larger than some of the "large" cities listed. Is there a set definition we're using for "Large Cities" and "Smaller Cities"? Jdoty 13:31, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

You have a point. According the U.S. government estimates for 2005[1], which appear to be the most recent, Palm Bay's population is less than 100,000. But then, that appears to be true for Lakeland, Miami Gardens, North Miami, Palm Bay, Plantation, Sunrise, and West Palm Beach. Other sources may indicate otherwise, but I think the US Census Bureau figures are viewed as the primary authority in these matters. Further infomation about this would be helpful to know, definitely. But unless some really compelling arguments come forth in the next few days, I'm going to move all the aforementioned cities out of the "Largest cities" section of the template. Frankly, it's tempting to only have the top ten cities in there, but that could make the section with the other cities really bunchy. Guess we'll see, doncha know. :) -Ebyabe 18:27, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
We need to set a standard for which cities are included in the "largest cities" section of this template. Recently someone added one that has less than 40,000 people. If this is the bar, this template is going to become immense. I vote for no less than 50,000, or perhaps more.--Cúchullain t/c 22:39, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
I'd say above 100,000. As long as there's not too many in that section (no more than, what, 15 or 20?) would be good. Do agree, though, that some sort of standard should be set, whatever it is. --Ebyabe 12:49, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
Actually looked at the template, and 50,000 people is probably a good benchmark. It's just a matter of seeing how many that would be. --Ebyabe 12:51, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
The template already is set to 50,000 -- I did it myself. Telos 03:24, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
Good enough. I went ahead and removed Altomonte Springs and Sanford, as they're both less than 50,000. --Ebyabe 12:06, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
