redirects[edit]

the individual MSA's have inappropriate redirects. they link to articles that are better as "see also"s at end of article. they should have their own articles eventually.(mercurywoodrose)66.80.6.163 (talk) 16:48, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

The fix is for someone to write the appropriate MSA articles. Binksternet (talk) 17:35, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Importance[edit]

These statistical areas are large, but the concept itself is of limited use, mostly for the feds to play with. the locally important divisions that are of highest importance are the San Francisco Bay Area, and the regions, such as East Bay, Peninsula, South Bay, Silicon Valley.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 07:17, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Map Issue[edit]

The map shown for this Combined Statistical Area doesn't have San Joaquin County highlighted, even though it is listed here as a constituent county for the CSA. I don't know how to draw a new map, but maybe somebody reading this will be able to crank out a new SVG. 216.162.164.50 (talk) 14:06, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about that! When I put this article together there were only 11 counties in the definition. (See this version.) In light of the federal changes, I just asked Optigan13, the author of the 11-county image, to update it for 12 counties. Binksternet (talk) 14:17, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
I updated the SVG image after Fruitianslip had created a derivative png, and now we appear to be reverting each other. Only differences are SVG vs PNG and color choice as far as I can tell. As I said in my edit summary, I believe SVG is still preferred over PNG, and I have updated the SVG. Also that putting Maroon next to red may cause confusion. Let me know if the svg just absolutely needs another color. I'm not sure why this keeps getting reverted. -Optigan13 (talk) 16:31, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland CSA.svg PNG using  for San Joaquin
SVG using SpringGreen

PNG using Maroon
  
for San Joaquin county
I've tweaked it again to   olive to try another color. Also, if you look in the file source in notepad there are id tags by county name so you can change the fill value to any hex value if additional counties come online. -Optigan13 (talk) 19:13, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
The SVG looks better to me, with its white border around each colored county. The issue of color is thorny because of the number of counties, but I'm fine with the SVG colors. Binksternet (talk) 20:44, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Inconsistent presentation[edit]

The individual Wikipedia pages for San Benito and Santa Cruz counties appear to be using a template that presents the said counties' areas in terms of square kilometers, with the area in square miles presented second, in parentheses. At the individual pages of the other ten counties in this Combined Statistical Area, the presentation is the opposite: square miles, followed by square kilometers in parentheses. Someone familiar with the operation of templates might want to bring the presentation at the pages for San Benito and Santa Cruz into conformity with the other ten presentations. That will reduce the chance that a Wikipedia reader who is interested in comparing or adding the areas of the CSA's twelve counties will err. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.52.13.217 (talk) 20:54, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
