"Status" field[edit]

Seems to me a better display name (as well as field name) for this parameter would be "ownership" as forests may sit on either publicly-owned or privately-owned lands. Would there be any objection to changing the "status" field and display names to "ownership"? My name is Mercy11, and I approve this message. 01:42, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

No objections for 20 days, so DONE. My name is Mercy11 (talk) 19:24, 26 August 2013 (UTC), and I approve this message.
Actually, take that back: Something went wrong and it didn't work. Perhaphs someone else can look to make this change,,, since there have been no objections. My name is Mercy11 (talk) 12:46, 27 August 2013 (UTC), and I approve this message.

Map vs. picture[edit]

Something interesting happened while working with the forest infobox at THIS article:

As long as there was no picture in the infobox (it hadn't had a picture for years) the map displayed at the top of the infobox just before the Geography section as it would be expected. However, today I added a picture of the forest to the infobox, and the image of the map jumped to the very bottom of the displayed infobox, after the Ecology section. This position makes no sense. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions? Thanks,

You're right: it doesn't make much sense. I moved the map to be at the head of the Geography section (if there's a photo) —hike395 (talk) 05:43, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Removing call to Invoke:Coordinates.dms2dec[edit]

Hi. I'm planning to remove the call to Invoke:Coordinates.dms2dec as per the discussion here. I already updated the sandbox page last night, but forgot to leave a note on this talk page. Unless anyone has objections, I will commit the update sometime on Friday night. Thanks. gnosygnu 02:49, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
