Good point relative to the limitation of the current section title. We did update the table to reflect the range with:

Area, State and Country Managers

I would propose we just update the main section heading to that same title (and keep an anchor to the original). Then we don't have to split up the table into different sections.

If we have no opposition to this change, I'll make it after a few days.

[New Template] State Template suite

Postby DwarfLord » Fri Feb 05, 2016 1:20 pm

Looks great, only concern I have is that the Road Types (USA) article doesn't actually articulate a clear default standard for dirt roads -- rather it says application varies and one should check one's state resources. So readers may experience a certain circularity.

That is not the fault of the template of course. I wonder if it would be more productive to attempt to craft and find consensus on default USA language or just to write something for California.

(EDIT: sigh, Tapatalk showed me a stale cache of this thread so I responded to the "dirt roads" post from many days ago. Sorry, didn't mean to derail the conversation! But the comment still stands I believe.)

On the dirt road comment, I see what you mean. I think the Dirt Road page is not bad, but I think we can prevent the circular reference by changing the Dirt Road page to (changes in red):

Dirt Road wrote:In some areas of the country, improved unpaved roads (gravel, macadam, etc.) are set to this type. In other areas, improved unpaved roads, and possibly certain dirt roads, will be set to other types, as if they were paved. Check your state page for details on whether your state follows unique guidelines for dirt roads or contact your regional coordinator for further guidance.

Sounds good but should probably be mentioned in the update thread for that page.

Not to be a nag, but the section title still reads "Area Managers"
Perhaps I can help in editing it?

Please go ahead. My day job and now my new book career is consuming me. Just send me a PM if there are any troubles.
