NOTE: State landmark guidance has been superseded by the national guidance for the new Places system. Please familarize yourself with that guidance and edit the map accordingly.

I'd like to suggest that we set up a Wiki for landmarks similar to what Connecticut has
. It is basically the same as what we tell people, but it provides far more detail over what is or isn't allowed and how to mark things than any of the national landmark articles. I'd like to see if there needs to be any discussion over what is on the Connecticut page. Does anyone disagree with anything on that page with regards to mapping the items in MI? Or is it correct as-is? After discussion, we can get a page set up with the information and then I think it would be valuable to have a link to that page stickied (and perhaps other important MI pages that we may create or that are already created).
One quick note regarding the page is that the information on gas station landmarks isn't correct. They don't suppress traffic problems at this time. The same for parking lot landmarks. Also, I think I've seen more consensus to naming the station based on the most prominent signage rather than the brand. They mention both methods on their Wiki page and it isn't perhaps as clear as it should be. But that could be discussed as needed. And I think any public parking (paid or not) that is not tied to an individual business (or mall) should get landmarked. CT says only free ones get landmarked. Ones tied to a business shouldn't be landmarked, of course.
Any thoughts or opinions?As a side note, I'm also suggesting this for North Carolina as these are the two areas I'm most interested in.
