Rockford is in Chicagoland?! --goethean 14:20, 20 July 2005 (UTC)

  • I've merged this into Template:Chicago; what do you think of this solution?--Pharos 04:04, 6 August 2005 (UTC)
    • Never mind, I redesigned this template instead.--Pharos 04:26, 6 August 2005 (UTC)

Regions ---> States[edit]

I have done away with the regions section of the template and replaced it with "States" because only two, very loosly defined regions were listed. The whole template deals with a region, and splitting Chicagoland up into smaller sub-regions seems futile as there is an overwhelming number of possible regions. In this case, only two were listed and they covered a very small part of Chicagoland. IMO, if you are going to pick two regions, I would not have picked those two; they dont even have articles. --Gpyoung talk 16:28, 6 August 2005 (UTC)

Other Counties[edit]

I've added counties to the Chicagoland template that are listed as being part of Chicagoland. Was there some reason for previously excluding them? Thanks. Ufwuct 15:14, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Cities vs. Towns vs. Villages[edit]

Should we bother making the distinction between these two categories? perhaps should we just catagozrize based on size, making the top something like 60,000, and the middle 30,000? Is the current distinction really useful? --YbborT 21:38, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Redundancy[edit]

Titling this template "Metropolitan area of Chicagoland" is annoyingly redundant. Notwithstanding the usage concerns, can we call it either "Chicagoland" OR "Chicago Metropolitan Area" and not a mix of the terms? Speciate 19:57, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

WikiCleaner[edit]

Used WikiCleaner to update wikilinks, only change was to 2000 Census page name. Thanks! Funandtrvl (talk) 19:17, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
