This page needs work.[edit]

This page focuses a lot on the Twin Cities culture and not enough on outstate Minnesota culture.ColdRedRain (talk) 01:07, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

I'd have to say i agree. This page does focus too much on the Metropolitan area. Obviously, like other metropolises, the culture of the state is usually less apparent. When you go to Saint Paul or Minneapolis, chances are no, you're not going to see much of the Minnesotan accent or traditions, but just drive 20 minutes south of the Mississippi River and you'll find plenty of Minnesotans that act like that (it's about 50-50 in the suburbs but 99% in greater Minnesota) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.131.52.164 (talk) 21:17, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Totally agree. 99% of Minnesota is much more of a traditional culture than the narrow, cities focused culture displayed here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 147.9.179.118 (talk) 02:59, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

I will take up the challenge[edit]

  • I am offering to work on this page, but it's going to be bits and pieces as I find suitible sources. Please leave any other suggestions here. I am going to focus on out-state first, since that's the only suggestion here so far.
  • Would anyone object to be deleting the accent section? I don't think that it's accurate...it's based on movie depictions. If I find any better sources I'll edit it, but right now I, personally, feel it's a bit offensive. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sabiona (talkcontribs) 13:58, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

This article needs a section on education (colleges, universities, etc.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.111.167.99 (talk) 02:06, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Shouldn't this article mention the Hmong community? Considering Minnesota's importance to the Hmong, and its high concentration of Hmong refugees[1], it should at least be given a mention. Travellingcritic (talk) 01:52, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Fandom?[edit]

Really? -160.94.92.178 (talk) 21:54, 24 March 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, no kidding. This is unique to the area, nor is it part of the culture-at-wide. There's geeks everywhere (and I use the term affectionately).

Baleeted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 160.111.254.15 (talk) 15:42, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

As you can see, your revision has been reverted as being "unconstructive". I don't disagree with your opinion on the section either...I've lived my entire life in the MSP and have never even heard of any of it. Not that that's a reason to not include it, but it seems awfully disproportionate to have an entire section specifically on it. Maybe it could be a subsection in Pop Culture? > MinnecologiesTalk 13:27, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
