Devil's Half Acre[edit]

I don't think that Devil's Half Acre belongs in the "unincorporated communities" section of the template. It seems to me like it's just a place of interest. Any objections? --RunnerupNJ 13:20, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree - it is not a place anyone lives now, so it is not a community. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 14:00, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Although it's not so common in Pennsylvania, counties nationwide have ghost towns in their county template. Why remove this one? Nyttend (talk) 18:23, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
I did not realize this was a common practice in other states - since that is the case I strike my previous comment and am OK with including this, thanks Ruhrfisch ><>°° 19:53, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
On the other hand, many places include the ghost towns separately: see {{Sanpete County, Utah}} and several other Utah counties for examples. I prefer to keep it simple (i.e. anything that's unincorporated and not a CDP goes in the "unincorporated communities", whether or not it's currently inhabited), but there's plenty of precedent for listing ghost towns separately from populated unincorporated areas.

I would also be OK with this. There are many lumber ghost towns in northern Pennsylvania. Masten has an article but is not in the county nav box, for example. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 02:11, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm not inclined to leave such situations that way; therefore, I've added a county template to Masten and I've added Masten to the county template. I've put it under Ghost Town for the simple reason that there are no non-CDP unincorporated communities in the county. Nyttend (talk) 02:23, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for taking care of that, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 02:36, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
