Confusion[edit]

What is all the hub hub about General Abrams charging one of his troops for some type misconduct? Thanks Steve Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). His Wikipedia page makes a remark about him making a possible career ending mistake to charge this soldier. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:6000:3e8c:e800:5cb8:1611:799f:5e00 (talkcontribs)

I'm not seeing that in either the article on Robert B. Abrams or Bowe Bergdahl -- could you give us a link? Antandrus (talk) 22:42, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Bad math in Bamberg SC article[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bamberg,_South_Carolina

Population is listed as around 3,700 with 10,000 households. All the population statistics are suspect. I think someone misinterpreted the Census data. Someone might want to fix. 205.144.215.150 (talk) 03:59, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

The 10,000 households bit was added by an IP back in 2006, and somehow didn't get noticed for ten years. Thanks for catching that; I changed it back to the correct value. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 04:18, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Issue of project ranging beyond a sensible scope[edit]

An example, the article on Ram Mounts is flagged as being part of WikiProject United States (which I will abbreviate WPUS). Sure, it's a USA company but it sells its product around the world. What is the benefit to the company itself, or to its customers, especially its foreign customers, or to Wikipedia, or to the WPUS project, or to the USA in general so to flag the article? Surely WPUS is about things uniquely American (by which I mean here "pertaining to the USA"), it's not about everything American. Or is it? Is it a nationalistic project or is it one to celebrate or lament (as and when appropriate) that which is uniquely American? Paul Beardsell (talk) 04:04, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

American companies face American laws, so the legal structure of the company would be American, and thus the people to consult would be WPLAW or WPUSA. Same as any other company based in any other country, where the local laws regulate the company. A UK-based company would thus have a WPUK banner. -- 70.51.44.60 (talk) 07:23, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
