I know that the counties were removed from this region, but can someone create some sub regions or suggest better names for regions that the counties, so that I don't need to foist places like the orphan page [[Cedaredge]] onto an article that has a full list of bigger places. - [[User:Huttite|Huttite]] 08:50, 13 November 2009 (EST)

Mesa Verde

From Eat:

  • Mesa Verde - Far View Terrace Navajo Hill @ Mile 15, inside Mesa Verde - 529-4444
  • Mesa Verde - Metate Room Navajo Hill @ Mile 15, inside Mesa Verde - 529-4423
  • Mesa Verde - Spruce Tree Terrace 9 miles inside Mesa Verde - 529-4521

Is "Mesa Verde" refering to the park? if so, these should be moved to the Mesa Verde National Park page... I just wasn't sure... Majnoona 16:02, 19 April 2006 (EDT)

Counties

Can we axe the counties list? I feel that this region is highly unlikely to ever be subdivided into county articles, and besides that unlikely possibility, a flat list of county names is highly irrelevant for the traveller. Texugo 23:18, 27 January 2009 (EST)

Deleted. The Counties List is too granular a breakdown for regions. WineCountryInn 12:56, 30 January 2009 (EST)

Cities List

Cleaning up the cities lists for all the Colorado regions. The three largest communities, Delta, Gunnison and Montrose are not represented here, and the list is highly centered on the southwestern part of the region. I vote that we replace Creede, Mancos and Dolores with these three towns. WineCountryInn 12:56, 30 January 2009 (EST)

Replaced Creede, Mancos and Dolores with Montrose, Gunnison and Ouray. WineCountryInn 21:21, 3 February 2009 (EST)

Subregions and counties - Finding a home for Cedaredge

I know that the counties were removed from this region, but can someone create some sub regions or suggest better names for regions that the counties, so that I don't need to foist places like the orphan page Cedaredge onto an article that has a full list of bigger places. - Huttite 08:50, 13 November 2009 (EST)

Individual county pages would not make for a very good subdivision—there are too many, and each on its own would have extremely little content. But I agree that adding tiny outline cities to the main list of such a good region article would be undesirable. I'll take a stab at a division, keeping in mind my limited knowledge of the region, but I'm sure Bill would know better how best to do this:
