Start location correct?[edit]

MapArt's 2007 Saskatchewan Road Atlas mapbook shows Hwy 11 starting at the intersection of Victoria Ave and Ring Road in Regina, then following Ring Road north and west to Albert Street where 11 continues northwest. Which is the correct start point? 23skidoo 22:46, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Removing[edit]

According to the 1925 Waghorn's Railroad guide the CNR Regina Branch went through Ardmore, and Condie stations before arriving at Lumsden.[1] Bredin also shows up at the intersection of Boggy Creek and the CNR in 1935. This was located between Condie and Lumsden. Boggy Creek is to the east of the highway and Waskana Creek [sic] to the west.[2] Condie is currently an unincorporated area of RM 159, but Ardmore and Bredin are ghost towns of Saskatchewan.

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Saskatchewan Highway 11/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

Comments:

  1.  Done Get a shield of the route for the infobox -- Will try to improve the existing shield shortly
  2.  Done For south end and north end in infobox, add "in" between route number an location
  3.  Done For the Rural Municipalities and Major cities parameters in infobox, add commas
  4. Add browse to infobox -- This is the term for previous and next routes...? well the coding was there before, and I copy and pasted from another infobox which is working. So now it is still not working, so will remove infobox and start over again.  :-(
  5.  DoneThere are too many pictures in the article, try removing some of them, especially the large cluster below the infobox -- will continue with some other points...these images balance out empty space beside TOC and quote box...which is mentioned below....Working on this now....
  6. Add some historical information about the route to the lead
  7.  Done Replace "divided facility" with "divided highway"
  8.  Done Is the random quote nessecary in the lead? I would suggest moving it to somewhere else in the article
  9.  Done Move the history section to after the route section
  10.  Done "filed in the low lying areas"? do you mean "filled in the low lying areas"? -- yes thank you
  11.  Done "provincial highway" needs to be capitalized
  12.  Done "linear lines"? sounds awkward -- removed linear
  13.  Done Is it nessecary for Provincial Highway 12 to be in italics?
  14.  Done The quote boxes in the Maintenance section make the article look messy. Is there anything that can be done to make them look better?
  15.  Done Add "In" to beginning of sentence "2002 a resurfacing project of 8.4 kilometers (5 mi) of Highway 11 was undertaken on a section 2.3 kilometers (1 mi) north of Macdowall."
  16.  Done In "July, 2007" remove comma
  17.  Done Rephrase sentence "July, 2007 was the beginning of the first asphalt rubber project on Saskatchewan Highway 11."
  18.  Done Rename the "Route" section either "Travel route" or "Route description"
  19. Is it nessecary to again mention the Louis Riel story as well as information about ecoregions?
  20. Try to add more information about the actual route itself to the route section
  21.  Done In Lumsden No. 189 section, add comma after Hwy 734
  22.  DoneRemove extraneous left in image by adding a "|" after left
  23.  Done The sentence "Another 10 kilometers (6 mi), the highway turns to travel westerly." sounds awkward
  24.  Done Fix redlink to Qu'Appelle River
  25.  Done In the sentence "Another 6 kilometers (4 mi) starting with a trip up the hill out of the Qu'appelle Valley, and there is the intersection of Hwy 54 which continues north to Regina Beach on Long Lake (Last Mountain Lake).", "starting with a trip up the hill" and "there is the intersection" sound awkward -- is it too long now?
  26.  Done "well suited" should be hyphenated
  27.  Done River should be capitalized in "Arm river Valley"
  28. Do not use "Louis Riel Trail" in almost every sentence
  29.  Done Indicate "642" is "Hwy 642", same for "354"
  30.  Done In sentence "Another 17.5 kilometers (11 mi) is the village of Findlater with 49 residents on the south side of the Louis Riel Trail, and picnic site on the north. ", add "In" at beginning
  31.  Done Remove comma after "ecoregion"
  32. References should not be in the middle of a sentence; move to the end
  33. Refrain from using one-sentence paragraphs
  34.  Done The sentence "Travel another 14.3 kilometers (9 mi) is an unincorporated area of Aylesbury." sounds awkward, rephrase
  35.  Done "quite steep"? sounds awkward
  36. Do not keep using "Another X kilometers" in article, try using another phrase
  37.  Done Do not need consecutive links to Hwy 732
  38.  Done Remove link to Saskatchewan Highway 11
  39.  Done Do not need to indicate Craik is in Saskatchewan
  40.  Done Do someting with the numerous quote boxes in the Route section, as it looks very sloppy with the image overlapping it. Are these boxes nessecary for quoted information? Don't quotation marks do the job? -- Yes I reread the wikipedia quote thingie and quote marks work, I thought the boxes were a necessity
  41.  DoneWhat is a "community in motion"? -- It is the town motto, however I removed it rather than explain it.
  42.  Done Is it nessecary to bold information in picture captions?
  43.  Done "halfway point" should not be in italics
  44. How can 0.5 kilometers be 0 miles? -- changed to the other conversion template, and we will see what it does. Didn't work did it manually but will have to address point above as well soon..
  45.  Done "Knob Hill road": "road" should be capitalized
  46.  Done "east west" should be hyphenated
  47.  Done The sentence "Trails started as dirt highways, then gravel highways and then all weather paved roads." souds a little awkward
  48.  Done "the No. 11" sounds colliqual
  49.  Done In first sentence of Rosedale No. 283 section, add comma after "census"
  50.  Done "... at the intersection of the Louis Riel Trail with Hwy 764 is 24 kilometers (15 mi)."? sounds awkward
  51.  Done "The rural municipality of Rosedale No. 283 December 13, 1909." is a sentence fragment
  52.  Done "From Hanley to Indi Road is 14.5 kilometers (9 mi),"? sounds awkward
  53.  Done Try to avoid overlinking, such as to Hwy 211 and Dundurn, Saskatchewan
  54.  Done "Floral road": "road" should be capitalized
  55. Is it nessecary to list all the rural municipalities that disappeared due to the growth of Saskatoon? -- Actually these are all the towns / villages / hamlets which were absorbed into the city... Will make sure they are plunked into the history of Saskatoon instead, and remove them here.
  56.  Done Remove the picutre of a generic cloverleaf interchange as it does not serve much purpose to the article -- ideally I would like an aerial shot of the interchange, but...no airplane... :-( So I removed the picture.
  57.  Done "north east" should be one word
  58.  Done The sentence " Fescue grasslands dotted with Aspen tree bluffs." sounds short and awkward
  59.  Done Rephrase "Turn onto Hwy 312 to arrive at Batoche National Historic Site..."
  60.  Done "Louis Riel trail": "trail" should be capitalized
  61.  Done The picture in the Duck Lake No. 463 section is too tall; try downsizing, cropping, or removing the image all together -- added upright into the template which makes images smaller, will see if that helps or not on next view. --- Nope Upright template tag did not work well, removed image altogether...will see if I can crop it down to just the sign with no scenery in behind for the category in commons
  62. Be sure to read through the Route section and check for grammatical errors
  63.  DoneRedo the intersections table to look similar to the one in Saskatchewan Highway 2
  64.  Done Fix the shield for Highway 732
  65.  Done Fix "[Saskatchewan Highway 5|Highway 5]]" link by adding extra bracket at beginning
  66. Is the Additional section nessecary in the article?
  67.  Done Move External links to after Notes
  68.  Done Rename Notes section References

I am placing the article on hold Dough4872 (talk) 03:33, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
