Wondering how to edit this U.S. County Entry?
The WikiProject U.S. Counties standards might help.

Realignments and Revisions[edit]

MSG FOR JREFEREE - Thanks again for the input, I'm always open to others' ideas, even if they differ from my own, I try to keep an open mind. To that same end, before I began this massive project of mine (realignment of geographical and transportation data and adding info boxes), I consulted the page on WikiProjects for U.S. Counties, which makes the following statement regarding article structure; ..."These are only suggestions, things to give you focus and to get you going, and you shouldn't feel obligated in the least to follow them." Along with that, Vegaswikian made the suggestion that Major highways might not be applicable under Geography, but under an altogether separate Transpo category. So, grasping ahold of these concepts, along with a thermos full of Folger's and a full playlist in Winamp, I began my foray into the world of California counties.

Plumas is just one stop along the way in what started as an attempt to add the full gammut of highways to each county, with Google Earth as a reference (and the fact that, loving to drive, I've been on almost every major highway in this great state of ours!). During this effort, I came to the realisation that cities and towns are indeed part of a county's geography, as they define specific places and are definite features of the county's overall geo structure. With that in mind, the realignments seemed appropriate.

If a consensus is reached that cities and towns should be separated, I'll go along with that (albeit begrudgingly, this has been quite a task! :-) Edit Centric 03:34, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
