national day in Infobox?[edit]

Didn't Template:Infobox country used to have a slot for a country's national day or holiday? —Steve Summit (talk) 17:58, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

Not sure, but I wouldn't add it now. Doesn't say much about the country. CMD (talk) 10:08, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

I have changed Kenya to B-class status because I feel it has met the referencing criterion. However, I am posting here because I have provided the refs myself. If anyone feels I have made a mistake due to a conflict of interest, please re-assess it and let me know. Thanks, MediaKill13 (talk) 11:36, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Problematic article[edit]

List of countries and dependencies by population is an article that is relevant to this project. After having it drop off my watchlist some time ago I returned on 9 August 2016 to find that the population table is constantly being edited without any indication of sourcing, or edit summaries, usually by IPs or newly registered editors. The complete lack of sourcing for new edits means that the data in this article is dubious at best. One particular problem that I found is that data templates, which are used to automatically calculate today's population based on official sources, have been removed and replaced with unsourced manual calculations. Several times now I have had to restore these templates after yet another unsourced, unexplained change.[1][2][3][4][5] I have now tagged the article to identify issues, and requested semi-protection, but the input by responsible editors who can update the article with accurate, sourced data is needed. --AussieLegend () 04:39, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
