Hrmm, I have looked at the FAQ and I don't think this is covered - I see that the bulk, in fact, nearly 100% of Rambot's new pages today have another page of a place with the same name but a different status. ie Geneva (city), Ontario County, New York and Geneva (town), Ontario County, New York - is this correct? It seems odd. I presume there must be some physical relation between these places, since the odds of this happening with every name are very low if it was just a case of 2 separate places with the same name...

This has been a long overdue addition to many missing cities. The census bureau lists over a thousand places with two separate sets of data. In New York a "town" is contained within a "city" of the same name. They are two distinct entities with the same name. These are the only articles left to be made by the rambot. -- RM

Hrmm, one feels that the article about the embedded place should link to the article about the surrounding place... Evercat 02:41 3 Jul 2003 (UTC)

It would make sense, however, I do not know enough about these some 1,000 places to pinpoint the exact relationship between them. Some places are designated as a "Census Designated Place (CDP)" and as such *may* just be an arbitrary census bureau designation that has nothing to do with the legal city boundary... or maybe it really is a part-whole relationship. In otherwords, I am not in a position to tell what it is, so it will have to be up to locals to try and figure it out (if possible). Make sense? -- RM

Fair enough. Evercat 02:55 3 Jul 2003 (UTC)
