      • be assigned the appropriate state-level "(state) Trunked Radio Systems" category, and
      • not be assigned the state-level "(state) Trunking Information" category.
      • have the appropriate "Template:InfoBox..." correctly applied
      • have the appropriate "Template:Tracker..." applied, if one relates to the TRS's system-type.
      • have the appropriate "Return to" link(s) applied.
    • AND which HAS been deprecated, should:
      • be assigned the appropriate state-level "(state) Deprecated Trunked Systems" category, and
      • not be assigned the state-level "(state) Trunking Information" category.

Narratives

    • Biographical/Personal information placed in your "User:..." page(s) can include first-person statements, like "I use this model scanner...", etc.
      • CAUTION: Anything you post will always exist in that page's "History", so be careful with your own personally identifiable information, and with anything that might later reflect poorly on your reputation in the eyes of your family or employer.
