"Local travel guides"
I took out the "Local travel guides" section of this region page. I'm not sure I understood what it was supposed to signify. All the cities and sub-regions listed in a region guide are also travel guides. Is there something I'm missing here? --Evan 17:24, 28 Sep 2004 (EDT)
Actually, the exclamation point is part of the name. See , for example. That article notes, "These days, however, Hamilton! is not widely used." So Wikitravel policies would indicate removing it. -- Jonboy 16:30, 17 May 2006 (EDT)
There are currently five regions defined for Ohio:
I'd like to propose renaming these regions to remove the "(Ohio)" so that we would simply have "Southwest Ohio". User:TVerBeek has already done something similar for Alaska, and eventually it might be nice to see it made part of the Wikitravel:Article naming conventions since no one says "I'm going to visit Southeast".
In addition, while counties are not always a good way to define a region, when I lived in Ohio counties were commonly used and seem like they might make a good way to keep regional borders straight. How about the following (see  for a map):
I'm most familiar with the counties along Lake Erie, so I may have goofed up a bit, but does this seem like a reasonable proposal? It basically divides the state with a band across the middle for Mid-Ohio and the four corners of the state are given their own regions. Also note that I'm not proposing we necessarily create an article for each county, but using the above for our definitions of each region makes it really easy to figure out what city goes where. Thoughts? -- Ryan 14:16, 1 August 2006 (EDT)
