Unless we're going to characterize Northeast Wales and Northwest Wales, I'd prefer to leave the headers out entirely. --Evan 16:27, 12 Dec 2005 (EST)

I think the changed page is considerably better. It links to the counties, it has the new MoS style, and it leaves out the pseudo-regions in NE and NW. So, unless you have a good reason, please don't roll back. --Evan 02:25, 13 Dec 2005 (EST)
Hi sir, I had just written an explanation for my roll back, but I guess you were on line at the same time, and my reply got pushed out. That's life! Anyway, my point was this: While it is true that the main cultural divide in Wales is along the north - south axis, there is also a strong east-west division. The BBC web-side divides its local news along these lines: [1] However, if you feel that the region listing is not helpful, then I will leave it to your discretion how to proceed. Furthermore, the original listings had 'counties and boroughs'. This is because in the British system, certain urban areas are classed as both a borough/city and county. Wrexham is one such place. I guess that it had not be listed under 'cities', because there is nothing of interest for tourists. In South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea and Newport are all classed a 'city and county', and because there are sites of interest to tourist and business people in these places, they appear under both the 'cities' and 'counties' lists. If you want to choose only one for Wrexham, then put it under 'cities' as it is an urban area. That's it. Sorry for rolling back before first explaining/discussing my reasons. 13 Dec 05
