Result: Procedural close. Article has been reinserted in the nominations queue. Geometry guy 12:58, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

I request reassessement of the recently failed Wisconsin Highway 29 article.

The reviewer failed the article stating the following: "I failed this, not because of any minor points like mileposts, but because the source for the history is not a reliable source. --NE2 01:37, 18 January 2008 (UTC)" I request reassessment for the following reasons:

  1. He failed to tell me which source he believes is unreliable - since there are several sources in that section, leaving me to wonder what's going on.
  2. Though it is reviewer's discretion, an opportunity should be given to improve the page by finding a more reliable source if it was this one small matter.
  3. The reviewer regularly edits articles of this type and is a member of WikiProject U.S. Roads, thereby creating a Conflict of Interest

  • "Wisconsin Highways" is not a reliable source. I figured that would be clear; sorry. --NE2 04:20, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
    • Changed  — master sonT - C 20:13, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
    • I'm going to need to get some additonal sources tonight  — master sonT - C 20:34, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
    • Though I'm making this correction this does not address items 2 and 3 yet.  — master sonT - C 21:05, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
This reassessment is closely related to the reassessment of Interstate 70 in Utah: the GA fail was a procedural mistake and a probable conflict of interest. However, as improvements are being made, others may want to propose listing this article. If they do not, I will restore it in its original place at GAN. I hope it will be fixed and listed!

Also New York State Route 174. --Rschen7754 (T C) 23:13, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I'm aware of that one too. Geometry guy 23:35, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
Seeing although NE2's actions was not correct, I bothered fixing NY 174 and am gonna send it to GAN instead of relisting it. A review from a non-USRD may be better than just a listing.Mitch32contribs 23:50, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
That's fine, although I may readjust the date and move it up the list, if that is okay with you. Geometry guy 00:15, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Done (set for december 28).Mitch32contribs 02:25, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Do what you want. I thought I'd help but apparently that didn't happen. --NE2 00:20, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, you helped me find errors I didn't see. Mitch32contribs 02:25, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm closing this, now. I would note that the lead needs expansion to summarize the article adequately. Geometry guy 12:58, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
