I'm not sure what you're trying to do at Happy Valley-Goose Bay. You've added 2016 data to a table entitled "Canada 2006 Census", and then you tell other editors not to revert your sloppy edit. Please use your sandbox to correct the edit and the links, and then upload it. Help is available if you ask. Thank you. Magnolia677 (talk) 14:37, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
@ Magnolia677 Happy Valley-Goose Bay demographic data has not been edited on its Wiki page to reflect the most current information. In Canada, there is a census collected every 5 years. The latest data would be from 2016, not 2006 - as much has changed in Happy Valley-Goose Bay since 2006. Information for the 2016 demographic data can be found on the link that was cited. Editing the page is to ensure the newest demographic information is available to people who access the page. If that is not the right way to edit it, please let me know how as I thought I removed any reference to it being data from 2006. --184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:56, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
At Uniacke Square, you added demographic data with this edit. You included this source to support the data. After entering "Uniacke Square" in to the search, the result was "No match found". Could you please explain how you got this demographic data? Thank you. Magnolia677 (talk) 14:49, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
@ Magnolia677 - It takes digging to understand Statistics Canada website. Uniacke Square is comprised of 12090344 (DA) and 12090345 (DA) as seen by the Statistics Canada mapping website: https://censusmapper.ca/maps/902#14/44.6742/-63.5731 It is from Statistics Canada, and is information readily made available to the public. Understanding this information may be crucial to community workers, and residents. If I am not citing it right please help me instead of deleting the information. Thank you 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:01, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
- Thank you. Where in this edit does the source cited say that "Today, most residents of Uniacke Square are not descendants of the people who lived in Africville but rather residents from other areas in Halifax that moved to the area"? Magnolia677 (talk) 15:27, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
I have reverted your edits again at Black Nova Scotians. The links you added to support the demographic data are inadequate. Please provide a direct link to your source. Thank you. Magnolia677 (talk) 14:57, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Hello, I'm Hecseur. An edit that you recently made to Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, please use the sandbox. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. If your recent edit wasn't a test and you believe some of the information you removed was incorrect for some reason, please add a citation confirming it.
