Scroll Maps[edit source]
Just for the record, I really dislike scroll maps which are much more difficult to use than clicking to get to a larger map, or simply hovering to see hard to read county names. It would be SO MUCH EASIER without the scroll map. Did I mention that scroll maps are as ugly as sin? Too bad you broke this map by turning it into scroll map. It sets a horrible precedent. Soon we will think scrolling is the solution to almost every problem. DiltsGD 03:26, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
