Asheville is in the Piedmont?[edit]

I noticed that in the climate section, where it mentions snowfall totals, someone has deleted Raleigh, which is clearly in the Piedmont, and added the annual snowfall total for Asheville, which is clearly in the state's mountain region. Just thought someone might want to restore Raleigh and remove Asheville.

The WikiProject U.S. states standards might help.

Banking Collapse?[edit]

IMO, the section on North Carolina's economy needs to be updated to reflect the recent takeover of Wachovia and the troubles of Bank of America. The section on North Carolina's "Finance, Technology, and Research" reads like a chamber-of-commerce advertisement for the city of Charlotte, and doesn't reflect the recent economic downturn in the city due to the buyout of Wachovia and Bank of America's severe problems. Just a thought.

"First in Flight" vs. "First Flight"[edit]

The slogan printed on North Carolina license plates is "First in Flight", that can be seen in the photo in the article's Transportation section. Additionally, changing the link to "First Flight" redirects to a disambiguation page, while the First in flight link correctly redirects to a section of the article on the Wright Brothers. Please stop making this edit, it's just wrong.—D'Ranged 1 VTalk 02:45, 14 June 2014 (UTC)


No Map?[edit]

Why is there no map showing cities and towns? This article is sort of like a row boat with no oars. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 100.32.233.167 (talk) 21:46, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Many state articles do not have such a map. The issue is finding an up to date, free map or having one created. If you have suggestions, feel free to propose them. Scarlettail (talk) 22:22, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
It doesn't have such a map because you didn't create one yourself, upload it to Wikimedia Commons, and add it to the article yourself. Wikipedia only exists because you add things to it. No one here is any more important to this process than you are. Anything that you don't like, and don't fix, well, you have no one to blame except yourself. Nothing gets fixed at Wikipedia unless people who care fix it. You have proven you care, because you left this message. Therefore, it is dependent on you to fix it. --Jayron32 23:47, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
You need to realize, Jayron32, that some of us are less comfortable doing so than others.

Making good maps is an uncommon skill, one that is especially uncommon among Wikipedia editors--As we have learned in the last decade. The Wikimedia foundation raises donations from users for the improvement of Wikipedia, and it is in a position to fund the making of maps that would be of benefit to hundreds of millions of users. The solution is for them to hire a mapmaker. Rjensen (talk) 07:28, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Typo Regarding the Washington District Cession[edit]

I think I spotted a typographical error in your article. Shouldn't the reference in the sixth paragraph of the History section to the Northwest Territory be to the Southwest Territory?
