Bill Cosby[edit]

As said on the talk page and the edit history x10, Cosby was convicted of sexual assault, not rape. He is not legally a rapist. Natureium (talk) 19:19, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

OpenStreetMap (OSM)[edit]

Hi Arctic.gnome. Has there been a discussion in the community about including OSM links in articles, whether in list tables and elsewhere? While it is interesting to get a quick view of a municipality's boundary if one is interested, these are external links, which you know don't belong in the bodies of articles. The column of linked numbers looks awkward and the numbers and column heading are ambiguous. This column of links is adding clutter to crisp tables at List of specialized municipalities in Alberta and List of municipal districts in Alberta, in my opinion.

@Hwy43: That's fair. But I think it would be useful to have the links somewhere on Wikipedia. We currently only link to maps via the GeoHack system, which only links to points, so it isn't very useful for large areas. —Arctic Gnome (talkcontribs) 18:23, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
