Name[edit]

The template should be named Most Populous Cities of the Philippines instead of Largest. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 112.208.199.46 (talk) 10:48, 28 September 2014‎ (UTC)

Sourcing[edit]

Before my edits, you had one source at the top, and 6 other ones in the actual list. Changing the bottom ones wouldn't update the top one, and no guarantee that the 6 bottom ones would be updated simultaneously either. Furthermore, 12 of the 20 cities had as "reference" a Wikidata item which then lead to the same page already listed at the top of the template anyway, which only removed the actual source further from the reader, and sent them through another Wiki for no obvious reason. I have removed all sources and changed the top link to the correct xls file instead, so people will have one source for the truth, won't have to search on the landing page which of the xls is the one used, and can access the reliable source immediately, without intermediary steps or sites.
