I noticed that in the climate section, where it mentions snowfall totals, someone has deleted Raleigh, which is clearly in the Piedmont, and added the annual snowfall total for Asheville, which is clearly in the state's mountain region. Just thought someone might want to restore Raleigh and remove Asheville.
IMO, the section on North Carolina's economy needs to be updated to reflect the recent takeover of Wachovia and the troubles of Bank of America. The section on North Carolina's "Finance, Technology, and Research" reads like a chamber-of-commerce advertisement for the city of Charlotte, and doesn't reflect the recent economic downturn in the city due to the buyout of Wachovia and Bank of America's severe problems. Just a thought.
There was a consensus request for this. I posted Mars Hill College in the notable college section for North Carolina. I cited the source correctly and have the necessary cites if more are needed. I contacted an Admin User_talk:Jayson32 to make sure I was doing so properly and he said it looked good.
MHC is the oldest college in western North Carolina established in 1856. It's also home to the Lunsford festival - Bascom_Lamar_Lunsford. It's a historic site as well. I would like it to remain in the section on the page along with the other notable locations. I could give further proof if it is needed. Ncashbo (talk) 17:01, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
The main reason I (and maybe the others) reverted the addition wasn't due to citation issues but rather that I've seen all too often lists of allegedly "well known" schools grow by one or two schools a month until the paragraph is a mass collection of blue links of use to basically nobody. (I say allegedly because Duke and Wake Forest are the only two schools on the list I've ever heard of.) I'm not from NC and maybe being the oldest school in western NC is indeed notable enough to mention in this article (if others agree that it is I don't have a problem keeping it in the article). My main issue is that I watch most state articles and these lists (ideally we wouldn't have any lists here) always get out of hand if the inclusion criteria is something like "well known". I see you're a new editor and starting a talk page discussion when you now others disagree is commendable. AlexiusHoratius 17:18, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Ncashbo, as you were told on your talk page, proper sourcing is necessary but not sufficient for inclusion in the article. Your edits were challenged by AlexiusHoratiu, and now by me. I agree with AlexiusHoratiu that the article is "not the place to list every college, even the largest in western NC, oldest in eastern NC, most expensive in northern NC" etc. Please do not restore the information until there is consensus here to do so; there is no consensus of one editor. Please read the policy. Cresix (talk) 17:22, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Before there was a section about the list of films produce in NC. I don't know who removed it but that's an important part of NC culture. NC ranks 3rd behind CA and NY in movies being produce. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:21, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
This article mentions the nickname in the Lead (not linked) and infobox (where it has a wikilink) but not once in the body copy. It would be worth including a short discussion of the name and a link to its article in the main text. --Dweller (talk) 21:09, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
At the end of this section are two sentences that are clearly biased and should be removed: -Unverifiable source cited/broken link: "Unemployment benefits were reduced with the state opting out of the federal unemployment compensation scheme." -Biased point of view, this links to an editorial page, and is also false information: "Funding for education and social services was reduced." 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:04, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
