Talk:Southern Utah

OK, so, first off, I'm thrilled that we're getting a nice region structure for Utah. Thrilled. I love it when it all shakes out so nicely.

However... I think this article is something of a naming challenge. Most people don't think "Southern Utah" when they hear Dixie. They think, usually, of the South, with or without Texas and/or Florida.

Even though we're not using the name "Dixie" for that region, I'd like to move this article to Dixie (Utah) and make Dixie a redirect to the South. Any big objections? --(WT-en) Evan 09:59, 2 March 2006 (EST)

No "big" objections, but two minor ones: First, there is no problem here yet, since the term "Dixie" applied to the American South isn't in use elsewhere in WikiTravel that I can see. Second, the use of "Dixie" applied to the American South is considered pejorative by some. Why invite trouble?
This said, if you want to make this change, do it with my blessing, and now is a good time, while the number of pages linking to this one is still small. Please do try to update the pages linking here; I think there are only four or five. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 10:05, 2 March 2006 (EST)
Isn't it the theme song? Who considers it pejorative? -- (WT-en) Mark 10:52, 2 March 2006 (EST)
I used to think it was an innocent song. Wikipedia learned me better. -- (WT-en) Colin 14:39, 2 March 2006 (EST)

Cedar City[edit]

Cedar City would never consider itself to be part of Dixie, it pretty much starts at the county line. —The preceding comment was added by (WT-en) (talkcontribs)
