"City" status of Pocomoke City[edit]

I am going to change the status of Pocomoke "City" to that of a town--it only has 4000 residents, and is not as large Ocean City, which is listed as a town. Pilch62 (talk) 18:27, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Laws vary by states: in New York, many cities are smaller than are a few villages. Nyttend (talk) 20:31, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
Your point? You have YET to provide a legal explanation. And I've been able to find NO policy on widipedia that says that any designation the census makes is binding. And I would kindly appreciate it if you would stop reverting until this issue is resolved. Pilch62 (talk) 03:16, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
And Maryland doesn't distinguish between cities and towns--all incorporated urban areas are "municipalities": See here Pilch62 (talk) 03:27, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
See here: the Census is a primary base. I have spoken of a source (on the article since 11:55, 24 December 2004) for it being a city. Using your link, the PC section notes that it is "Named for Pocomoke River on which the City is situated." The only reason you've provided for it being a town is that it's smaller: i.e. you think it doesn't look right. This is original research: unpublished analysis of published material that serves to advance a position. Nyttend (talk) 12:09, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
Your "source" has no justification for its rationale. And if you want a "source", perhaps you should refer to the many state court decisions and newspapers you can find merely by googling "pocomoke city"" that refer to it as a "town". ANd rather than discuss the issue, you keep reverting. If you do that one more time you are being reported for violating the 3 revert rule. PS: Your lack of civility is showing.

I've raised the issue here. Pilch62 (talk) 12:43, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
