How to edit[edit]

Wondering how to edit this State Entry?
The WikiProject U.S. States standards might help.

Vibrant? Historic?[edit]

The phrase, "Other communities with vibrant historic downtown areas include" appears four times in the article. Once would constitute wishful thinking. Four times amount to fantasy of the highest order.

Iowa is, in global terms, a farming backwater. To suggest that any part of it is "vibrant" shows a disconnect with the world. This may, ironically, be quite a suitable outlook for an Iowan. However, Wikipedia is supposed to be a global encyclopaedia, rather than a sort of hokey advertisement for dreams of the quiet life. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:04, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Town Photo Collection Now Available[edit]

Hi Iowa Wikipedians! Long time. Just wanted to let you know that I have finally put my collection of 7204 photographs from 213 towns in 59 counties in Iowa on line. These include general town photos (of varying quality), as well as NRHP buildings. They all have the Creative Commons CC BY-NC 3.0 license. They can be found at:

For a variety of reasons, I can't Wikipedia anymore, but I'd love to see these photos go to good use. Peace, Bill Whittaker (talk) 15:22, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

North, East, and Western Iowa, but nothing about Southern Iowa?[edit]

And no map of the state showing the locations of all the cities and towns? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:48, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

dead links[edit]

K6ka, Unfortunately, almost a third of URL's on this site are dead, because they were never archived. I flagged the site with "linkrot", which isnt exactly right but hits the core. Note: There is no other appropriate flag to point this out. I saw you removed the linkrot tag, even though there are innumerable dead links. I am restoring the flag.--Wuerzele (talk) 20:33, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Fine with me. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 21:00, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
