Why was this page moved? The previous version fit in well with our Article naming conventions. --Evan 17:07, 24 May 2004 (EDT)

I moved it because "Florida Panhandle" is what I've heard it called as long as I remember. It seemed less awkward than "Panhandle (Florida)" as well. -- Infrogmation 17:34, 24 May 2004 (EDT)


The sub-regions seem to overlap each other here. OldPine 10:18, 7 October 2006 (EDT)

Agreed. Research at Wikipedia seems to indicate that "West Florida" is a name for a different concept and we should keep only the three remaining subregions under the Panhandle. gamweb 10:27, 24 August 2008 (EDT)
They still overlap even if you remove one. On my map of Florida, I just used West Florida and Middle Florida, as those two covered all of the counties in the panhandle. Emerald Coast and Forgotten Coast seemed redundant. LtPowers 19:14, 24 August 2008 (EDT)
I believe we are just going to have to "pick and choose" the counties for the sub regions under the Panhandle to eliminate any overlap. gamweb 20:35, 24 August 2008 (EDT)

Found a Florida counties page with maps that might help: Florida counties. All the counties have their own maps, which are Public Domained at Wikipedia. So we can use them over here. gamweb 20:41, 24 August 2008 (EDT)

West and Middle do seem to be all we need here. Could probably redirect the other names appropriately. OldPine 21:53, 24 August 2008 (EDT)
Agreed, though Gamweb has a good point that "West Florida" has a different historical meaning. "Middle Florida" is also potentially problematic, as it apparently extends into our "Northern Florida" region. We may need to rename them. LtPowers 08:31, 25 August 2008 (EDT)

How about, "East Panhandle" and "West Panhandle?" Leave the division along the lines of the map that LtPowers made. gamweb 13:27, 29 August 2008 (EDT)


The list of Cities needs to be narrowed to at most 9, and less if there are not 9 critical cities in the region. I know that Tallahassee, Pensacola, and Panama City should be on the list, which others? Jtesla16 20:03, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
