I wonder whether it would be a good idea to add the clickable map above to Template:National parks of the United States? --Donar Reiskoffer 11:23, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

It's now its own template, that way it only needs to be changed once to change everything: {{National parks of the United States map}} Nationalparks 21:18, 12 June 2006 (UTC)


BR's, dots, new lines[edit]

Hmm. On different resolutions, the lines work out differently. I certainly understand why we wouldn't want a park to go on two lines, but now it sometimes works out that there are two parks not separated by a dot or a new line. Nationalparks 20:25, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

Adding Parks?[edit]

What are the criteria for adding parks to this template? In particular, the Boston National Historical Park is a significant park as far as its part in US history, and I would like to add it to the template, but do not want to do so if there are some specific criteria for inclusion that have been defined and I just couldn't find them. Thanks! —Krellis 19:56, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Sorry. These are only "National Parks". The list is complete and can only change if they add or remove a park. I would, however, love to see a similar template for "National Historical Parks". Nationalparks 21:49, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
Okay, I understand now, I was just expecting the template to be using the broader definition of national parks, like the List of areas in the National Park System of the United States. Now that I understand the purpose, though, and think about it a bit more (that would be a big template, after all, if it tried to list all of them!), I realize the question was kind of stupid. Would it be acceptable to copy the formatting of this template if I attempt to make a National Historical Parks template? Thanks! —Krellis 22:03, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
I have been thinking about creating templates for Nat'l Mon, Mem, Pky, etc. So it would be absolutely wonderful if you copied the basics from this one for Hist Parks! Nationalparks 22:55, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
I've created Template:National_Historical_Parks_of_the_United_States - I'm open to comments, corrections, suggestions, etc. It should be complete at this point - two of the listed parks aren't on the map because they don't fit within its scope, but everything else should be there. —Krellis 00:42, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
That's great! Wonderful job! If I ever get some free time, I will create templates for the other unit types. Nationalparks 03:33, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
If I get bored, I may do the same. Or better yet, having done it by hand the first time, I might write a script to automate some of the work next time :) Thanks for the barnstar, I'm glad to help out! —Krellis 05:06, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Pinnacles NP[edit]

Could someone with more skill than I possess add Pinnacles National Park to the map? Pinnacles National Monument was redesignated as a national park on 10 January 2013. Acroterion (talk) 01:37, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Figured it out, done. Acroterion (talk) 04:29, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
