locks[edit]

Why is gray lock post on every Mo highways. I don't see racist non-sense or blue languange (profanity), or white out pages.--Freewayguy Talk Contribs 19:49, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

The St. Louis Signer, an IP editor who intentionally edits against the Manual of Style and signs the bottom of each article with ~~~~, has been messing the MO interstate pages up (example). Since the IP range includes too many individual addresses, we can't block (due to possibility of collateral damage), so the Signer's favorite targets have been semi-protected. "Autoconfirmed" users such as yourself can still edit; only anonymous users and those with newly registered accounts cannot edit semi-protected pages. In the future, check Special:Log which contains the date of protection, date of expiry, protecting administrator, and reason for protecting the page. —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 04:16, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • A series of edits in 2008 in turn corrected and undid information about the termini of I-155 with I-55. Presumably the edits were believed to be vandalism, so they were undone. I shall refrain from commenting further save to say that the edits were correct and the undoings were not vandalism but merely misled.
I've traveled that stretch of I-55 and I-155 several times in the last few months and can vouch for the correct information (i.e. exits 17A & 17B of I-55 are the termini of I-155) which shows on my edit of today March 20th 2010 with a hidden comment. To be complete, I also checked the Google Maps which, although vague, support my statement (as, of course, they should do). This is one instance where original research (if you want to call it that) was apparently required.
I hope that this will not circle back on itself as it has done in the past, but in case it might, the hidden comment should alert anybody who innocently tries to undo my edit. Twistlethrop (talk) 01:36, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

i've seen some anonys try to remove state-name specifics from interstate shields. Missouri is shade in blue and specifies state-name specific in sign drawing. Most of it is state-name shields, and they dont make too contraction errors liek Oklahoma does. Those changes is original source in fields. Green tour signs is only don't need state shields.--Freewayguy Talk Contribs 19:46, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
