  • The categories for clubs is getting a bit out of hand, and categories are hard to edit once they are in place. Do we really need a club category for every state in the US? Most categories only contain one article... :-/ --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 09:46, 18 March 2007 (CDT)
    • I say that we have a page with all the links to the different clubs, in alphabetical state order (Alabama first, Wyoming last). We take the club name and put the state beside it. This should be a list, in my opinion, to save space. This way it looks tidier, saves space, and doesn't have a bunch of dead links to nonexistent pages.--gregleo 22:27, 19 March 2007 (CDT)
      • To see a list of all the clubs we have, look here. Categories rock because they are kept up to date automatically so you never get any dead links. That page also has an alphabetical list of club state categories (although really the state categories should be a subcategory of USA clubs). What doesn't this have that you would want? --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 13:12, 20 March 2007 (CDT)
      • I think clubs need to have a category. I think it does need some work to make all the pages more consistent and conforming. Since each state only seems to have one club it might be overkill to have it sorted down to the state level, but that makes it easier to find a club for your specific state. Does that makes sense? --Josh Parker 10:00, 20 March 2007 (CDT)
        • Good point. It feels like overkill, but it might make things easier to navigate. It needs tidying up anyway. Just how many states are there in the US? --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 13:12, 20 March 2007 (CDT)
  • There are 50 (Since I live in the US, I should know). They are:

Alabama Alaska Arizona Arkansas
California Colorado Connecticut Delaware
Florida Georgia Hawaii Idaho
Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas
Kentucky Louisiana Maine Maryland
Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Mississippi
Missouri Montana Nebraska Nevada
New Hampshire New Jersey New Mexico New York
North Carolina North Dakota Ohio Oklahoma
Oregon Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina
South Dakota Tennessee Texas Utah
Vermont Virginia Washington West Virginia
Wisconsin Wyoming

  • Sorry about the format.--gregleo 22:53, 22 March 2007 (CDT)
    • Perhaps the categories could be based off of areas of the US? For example, we could use the time zones: Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific, as well as maybe seperate categories for Alaska and Hawaii, since they don't fall into those areas. Then we would still have some form of area based organization, but without the clutter of having 50 different categories.--Jimmy 15:23, 16 June 2007 (CDT)
