Talk page archive[edit]

I just consolidated ALL of my talk page archives, so if you're looking for something, look in there.

BTW, If you're an admin coming here to complain about all of my deletion requests, sorry about that. Don't know of a better way to ask for all of the now-redundant archive pages to be deleted... Zeng8r (talk) 15:40, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Normally we wouldn't delete talk histories but if you could point to where your talk page archives have been consolidated I'll happily tidy up the old ones. (I couldn't see anything recent) Amortias (T)(C) 15:47, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
Never-mind. Found it. Working on the others now. Amortias (T)(C) 15:48, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
@Amortias: I just tweaked the name of the consolidated archive, so everything in the namespace Zeng8r/Archives (with an S at the end) can now be safely deleted. Hope that makes it a little easier. Thanks! Zeng8r (talk) 15:52, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Tampa, Florida[edit]

Hey there!

Why did you revert my edit on Tampa, Florida? Did you see any other examples where a city is listed as a subdivision of itself? Also, the link I deleted is completely wrong - Tampa - It points to the county but it is named after the city. Cheers IonutBizau (talk) 12:22, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

@IonutBizau: Perhaps you're confused by the wording used in the code of the infobox? If you look right under the map in the infobox for Tampa, Florida, you'll see that it breaks down the country, state, county, and then the city, to locate it for people who might be reading the article anywhere in the world and may have no idea where Tampa is. Those different levels are listed as "subdivisions" in the infobox coding. It doesn't mean "subdivision", as in an area / neighborhood inside of a town. Zeng8r (talk) 22:30, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
You're right, the name of the parameter might be confusing, but It's not necessary the that which confuses me, it's more the experience from working with Wikipedia. Basically I am not aware of many other cases where the city *itself* is listed in that context in the infobox. Sure, the country, state, province, county, etc... always appear there - basically entities at a higher level in the subdivision tree, but never the city itself - the one the article is referring to. It might be the case, I just never saw that done before. Now, assuming you do want to leave the city there, it's fine I guess (just weird for me, but whatever), but then there is a 2nd issue, as I mentioned, the link itself is just *wrong*. It's named "Tampa" but points to "Hillsborough County, Florida". So you should make it point to "Tampa" instead (or just remove the link completely and keep just the city name - it's a bit silly for a page to link to itself).

Just to double check I am not going crazy, I double checked other cities in Florida - Orlando, Miami, Jacksonville, etc ... None are listing the city itself in that context. But again, if you do insist on having the city there for some reason, please just remove the wrong link. IonutBizau (talk) 08:20, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
