No States or Provinces!

You are in charge of the order form on your web-based store. And you’re wondering why I’m screaming and shouting, flipping you the bird and throwing feces in your general direction.

Here’s why: In Denmark, and I’ll go out on a limb and say, in large parts of Europe and probably the rest of the world, sans the US, we do not have ‘states’ or ‘provinces’!

So stop forcing me in to filling out it out with something as redundant as NA. It’s easy, here’s how you do it: If I pick Denmark or any other non-state/provincial country from the dropdown, make the state/province input field non-required.

You’ve got dynamic pages and everything, it’s not that hard.
