As Los Angeles/Hollywood is so much more famous (4), any objections to the following?

Sounds good. -- Jonboy 13:13, 31 December 2006 (EST)
Good idea! -- Colin 21:25, 1 January 2007 (EST)
Should the main article actually be named Hollywood instead of Los Angeles/Hollywood? Wikitravel has been consistent in ignoring government boundaries when they don't make sense for travel, and this seems like another such case. While Hollywood is technically a sub-division within LA, there are literally dozens of such sub-divisions (see WikiPedia:List of districts and neighborhoods of Los Angeles) that are essentially independent cities that share government resources and are thus lumped under the umbrella of "Los Angeles". Studio City, Universal City and Sherman Oaks are similar examples. If we treat all of these as part of LA then we'll have quite a large number of "Los Angeles/Name" articles, which I don't think is the best way to organize an LA-area travel guide. -- Ryan 21:52, 1 January 2007 (EST)
I'm in favor of this, although I think we should be careful with it. I'd be more wary with making legally-distinct cities into neighborhoods of their metropolis. --Evan 21:56, 1 January 2007 (EST)
Strongly agree with changing the name. I first filled in this page 18 months ago and I'm a long-time L.A. resident. No one evers calls it Los Angeles/Hollywood. Luvdapug 22:13, 1 January 2007 (EST)
I agree -- especially since this kind of thing (massive sprawling cities where regions of the city are given a different name and are useful to the traveller as separate articles) is endemic throughout the Southern California region. -- Colin 18:31, 2 January 2007 (EST)
Great, a discussion at last! Evan, I've gone through and clarified which are and aren't cities so I think we're out of that danger zone. Luvdapug, it is named as Los Angeles/Hollywood since it is a district of LA city, and that's how we're supposed to name districts, although this is now being debated since LA has so many districts and some are so famous. Since you guys seem to know LA, can you maybe help on the discussions on Talk:Los_Angeles#Districts and Talk:Los_Angeles/West? I'd like to put a lot more work into the LA pages soon and maybe try to draw up some maps, but there's still grey areas that need to be worked out. Thanks! Cacahuate 02:56, 3 January 2007 (EST)
