Deserted: New Suburb Tag for Suburb Page Usage

It is noted by most of the editors that regularily change the reports on the suburb page that there is currently an issue with the old "tags" for suburbs. Specifically because of the new ransack changes, it is quite possible for a suburb to be very dangerous for a single survivor to attempt to sleep in without there being many zombies about that would destroy a larger and more organized group.

Therefore I submit that there should be a new tag that is basicly between "Safe" and "Very Dangerous"; this tag should be "Ghost"; (background: #EEE; border:solid 2px #CCC;), it leaning neither towards the color of Green or Red, the latter being VD and the former Safe.

The "rules" of this new tag should be something of such: At least 2/3rds of the suburb (i.e. 66 squares or above) either Empty of Survivors or Ransacked AND Having no zombie mobs of over 10 and no total zombies over 60

This allows for there to be a period in which "No One Lives Here" but can still be a "Great Place To Live". I believe that this tag should be named Deserted. It should be noted that this may still allows there to be a safe house or group of safehouses in the suburb but if the suburb is not secured and barricaded by survivors it cannot be called Safe no matter how few zombies there are.

  1. Change to At least 2/3rds of the suburb's buildings and I'll vote For. As written this implies that survivors would need to be sleeping out the streets for it not to be considered a ghost town. (i.e. 66 squares or above). Only a 2 or 3 burbs contain more than 60 buildings. --Max Grivas JG,T,Max4Mod,F! 23:27, 5 September 2006 (BST)
  2. Same as above. I can't believe you missed that guys. I'll change my vote as soon as you change the wording. --Matthew Fahrenheit YRCT+1 01:51, 6 September 2006 (BST)
