ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Viceroyalty_of_the_New_Spain_1800_(without_Philippines).png[edit]

I have had to remove this map from Wikipedia articles because, as it turns out, there are many inaccuracies.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e8/Viceroyalty_of_the_New_Spain_1800_%28without_Philippines%29.png

The inaccuracies include:

  • The Louisiana Purchase was in 1803, so what is labeled Spanish Louisiana should be labeled as US territory * There was no West Virginia at that time
  • It should say British territory, not English territory
  • There are three shades of grey on the map, but only two on the legend.* Ohio was a U.S. State in 1803, but it is not represented on the map this way
  • Monterrey and San Diego are placed inland, but indeed they are actually coastal cities
  • The scale provided is wrong. For example, in reality, New York State is 455 km wide.
  • Great Britain (in Upper Canada) should say United Kingdom.
  • Upper Canada should say Lower Canada.
  • Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron should be shaded as part of Canada.

If you unretire from Wikipedia, maybe you could correct these, and then we can use the map again? :)

Hope all is well,
