Welcome to my talk page!
My focus is editing articles relating to the Louisiana Highway System.

I am currently working to improve articles on this topic by adding detailed and accurate route descriptions, junction lists, and historical information from a variety of sources. An ongoing project is grouping the state's highway routes into Rockland County-style lists to eliminate a large number of article stubs. I have listed a number of Louisiana maps to the WikiProject U.S. Roads map database and would be happy to assist in any research.

Questions and comments are always welcome. Type below or hit the e-mail link above.

Interstate 110 (Louisiana)[edit]

Have you thought about taking this to WP:GAN? I think it's pretty close. --Rschen7754 02:55, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

I've wanted to start nominating some articles for awhile now, but I never seem to get around to it. I'll check out the process again and get this one going. Thanks. Britinvasion64 (talk) 13:08, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

U.S. Route 11 in Louisiana[edit]

Britinvasion64, did you realize the article on New Orleans doesn't have 'Louisiana' in the name? I think it's distracting to see "Redirected from..." when you click on a link; that's why the format New Orleans, Louisiana is better when you need to mention the state.

I don't necessarily disagree with you there, but city and state combos are not usually linked separately. The manual of style seems to favor "specific linking." Also, the change made it inconsistent with the rest of the article. For example, in the same sentence, "Rouses Point, New York" was left as one specific link. One more thing, you changed the piped link for the Maestri Bridge to avoid a redirect. I understand that you think the "redirected from" notice is distracting, but this practice goes against WP:NOTBROKEN and is unnecessary. (I didn't revert it though since it doesn't really make a difference, but others will nitpick that sort of thing). Britinvasion64 (talk) 22:03, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
