February 2012[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Grand Forks Public Schools, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. The reverted edit can be found here.

Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Grand Forks Public Schools with this edit. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Jim1138 (talk) 20:34, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did to Grand Forks Public Schools with this edit, you may be blocked from editing. Calabe1992 21:05, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Raymond, Washington, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. The reverted edit can be found here. Edinburgh Wanderer 23:34, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Census Table[edit]

If the census table exists in a compressed format, then please don't expand to one year per line. The compressed version is easy to read and doesn't take up a lot of vertical space.

{{USCensusPop|1900=|1910=|1920=|1930=|1940=|1950=|1960=|1970=|1980=|1990=|2000=|2010=|estyear=|estimate=|estref=|align=right|footnote=<center>[ U.S. Decennial Census]</center>}}

Please stop updating Demographics with estimates.[edit]

Please read Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities/US Guideline#Demographics. Note that Wikipedia is not a crystal ball. Demographics are to be listed as they were taken on the decennial year. If you insist on adding projections, they should supplement – not replace the decennial numbers. I know it can be frustrating to have all your hard work removed, but I encourage you to create a log in, join the community of editors, and learn more about our policies. --Dkriegls (talk to me!) 18:58, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

What happened? All revent and removed many cities in some different states? Yes, I saw in Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities/US Guideline#Demographics and Wikipedia is not a crystal ball both. I wondered about. Can't add 'U.S. Decennial Census' and/or '2011 estimate' in the Demograpics. It's citation? How? Why? but I am unable to create to log in. I have two account only.

Several discussions have been had on this topic at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Cities/US Guideline and several other places. The result is always that the decennial numbers (2010, 2000, 1990, 1980, etc) are actual measures and should always be displayed. Estimates for years like 2011 are not actual measures and should not replace the real decennial numbers. If you want to know how to incorporate estimates ask these people: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Demographics --Dkriegls (talk to me!) 05:34, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
Stop replacing actual census numbers with estimates, such as you did, in the Wilcox County, Alabama article. It goes against our established guidelines. If you continue to disregard this advice, it could lead to a block. Altairisfar (talk) 21:55, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
Hey Altairisfar and Dkriegls, I suddenly, alarmed and all changed back in list of counties in Alabama? I saw your your contributions I saw on the bottom leave 2011 estimate in the historical population table. Cannot replace in infobox? Right? I saw messed up and dirty some list of counties. Your edit summary say "Readd helpful info" I will replace to {{USCensusPop}} Then I will add time zone, website, largest city wl, seat wl, founded date and founded year, etc. I won't replace from 2010 census to 2011 estimate in the infobox on the top right. Reply back here. Ross Degenstein -- (talk) 02:04, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Yes, the only problem is replacing the last actual census with estimates. It's fine to add the estimates elsewhere in the article. I appreciate your adding sources, expanding the historical populations, and etc. Thank you. Altairisfar (talk) 13:15, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Block evasion[edit]

If you want to contribute to Wikipedia, then you must abide by Wikipedia's rules. One of these is that editors who have been blocked can't simply ignore the block by carrying on their edits without logging in (i.e. from an IP address) - the issues for which you were blocked in the first place don't magically go away just because you edit without logging in. Your main account, Rossdegenstein (talk · contribs), is what you should be using. I have re-enabled talk page access on that account so you can make an appeal using the {{unblock}} template and administrators can then decide what to do.
