Wikiproject New Jersey[edit]

I see that you've gotten off to a good start in somne New Jersey-related edits. I invite you to join WikiProject New Jersey, which is aimed at filling in the wholes and expanding details regarding the state of New Jersey. Alansohn 17:15, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

NJ Collaboration of the Week[edit]

Thanks for participating in Wikiproject New Jersey. In an attempt to create articles for some of the non-existing pages related to New Jersey, NJCOTW was recently created to bring members of WP:NJ together to work collaboratively on a certain selected topic, which this week is List of Governors of New Jersey. Please help by nominating/voting/commenting on articles on WP:NJCOTW, or by helping to improve articles in the scope of the topic for the NJCOTW. AndyZ 00:49, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:P6140018.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:P6140018.JPG. Wikipedia gets hundreds of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 01:10, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

GSP exit list reverts[edit]

Thank you Mlaurenti for starting the exit list on Garden State Parkway. It was a wonderful starting point and contribution. However, it does need some work (such as the US/CR abbreviations that Alansohn fixed, as well as minor factual errors). I understand your attachment to your work, but please do not revert edits that serve to make the encyclopedia better. Thanks. -- Northenglish 21:20, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for making a productive edit to the exit list. However, I'm curious as to why you decided to change "Township" back to "Twp" in some, but not all, cases. Alansohn edited the exit list to make it more consistent, and those changes will likely be reverted again. -- Northenglish 00:56, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Turnpike[edit]

Please be more attentive - my version now includes the piece to the GWB. --SPUI (T - C) 13:39, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Route 32 (New Jersey)[edit]

The purpose of the infobox is to give a brief overview of the route. Since it ends at the Turnpike overpass, it does technically end at the Turnpike, and including the Turnpike in both the junction list and the eastern terminus is extremely redundant. Tidbits of information such as that it actually ends at the overpass, not the interchange, should be included in the article text, not the infobox. -- NORTH talk 21:59, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

The word exit[edit]

Why did you capitalize exit in this edit? --SPUI (T - C) 13:56, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Infobox_road template standards[edit]

I have added a discussion thread at WT:NJSCR to address standards for NJ road infoboxes and invite your participation. Over the past several weeks, we have made tremendous progress in cleaning up the articles for the State highways in New Jersey, especially with the expansion and addition of infoboxes to most of these articles. However, there seems to be a great deal of confusion as to what should be going in these infoboxes. I am creating this thread and inviting those users who have been active participants in editing these pages to come up with a mutually agreeable answer on the issues listed. I will take on the task of moderating this discussion, but I will add my 2 cents on these topics. We can add more questions if needed, but please, be civil. Alansohn 23:40, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

You know you don't need me, I quit, I don't want to help.


A follow up on the usage of "Toll Gate" and toll plaza[edit]

It seems we've decided to use "toll gate" to refer to the toll facilities located at exits rather than on the Parkway itself; however, as a frequent user of the Parkway I would like to note that each and every toll facility on the Parkway identifies itself as a "TOLL PLAZA." In the windows of the booths, there are green signs reading, e.g.:

UNION
TOLL PLAZA

at a mainline plaza or, e.g.


UNION RAMP
TOLL PLAZA

at an exit. Regardless of what the common term for such a facility is, the term on the Parkway is toll plaza. In fact, other than in the New Jersey state driver's manual, which refers to them as "Toll Barriers," I've rarely heard them called anything but plazas on any road in the NY-NJ-CT region. I would change all the "gate"s to "plaza"s myself but I (a) don't feel up to the task at the moment and (b) I'd rather not start a revert war over the Garden State Parkway.--Mjj237 04:30, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your input. The edit you made regarding the tolls is well-worded; thanks for catching it. This page is susceptible to revert wars for whatever reason, but I will go ahead and make the edits to read "Toll Plaza". -- NORTH talk 05:03, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
Contrary to a foolish statement once made by a foolish New Hampshire governor, there are no "toll gates" on the Garden State Parkway (or anywhere in New Jersey, AFAIK). The Merritt Parkway used to have actual toll gates: gates at the toll barriers that did not raise until the proper toll was paid. But this has never been the case in NJ and "Toll Plaza" is definitely the correct term.
Atlant 20:47, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for clearing that up, Atlant, now it all makes sense. Although, a few of the older toll booths for exact change only have/had gates on them. (I moved out of New Jersey 5 years ago, so I don't know what the current status is.) -- NORTH talk 21:11, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
At Exit 145, the I-280 Exit, there used to be tollgates. I don't think they are there anymore. The baskets don't always work perfectly and there would be tieups and problems.--Wehwalt 16:49, 12 October 2006 (UTC)


Re I-95[edit]

The junctions aren't; per WP:IH only ones ending in 0 or 5 can go in the routeboxes on articles ending in 0 or 5. --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 21:54, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Maps[edit]

Image:Exit 8A (aerial NJDOT) copy.jpg and Image:New 8a.jpg say in the corner "(C) NJDEP", and the other maps obviously come from the same source. You cannot upload them (or modified versions) to Wikipedia without NJDEP releasing them under a sufficiently free license. --NE2 14:24, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Yes; you need to get permission, not only to use on Wikipedia, but to use under a free license. Most governments are not willing to do this; you may be able to generate something free using GIS data like the US Census TIGER/Line data. --NE2 18:50, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Signs[edit]

The Interstate shields are public domain, but the logos of the toll roads are being used under fair use. --NE2 17:03, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Copyrights[edit]

Stop uploading copyrighted images and then falsely claiming that they are in the public domain. If an image has a copyright notice on it, then it is not appropriate for use in Wikipedia. Wikipedia's policy on copyright violations includes the following warning: In extreme cases of contributors continuing to post copyrighted material after appropriate warnings, such users may be blocked from editing to protect the project. If you wish to continue to contribute here, you must stop uploading copyrighted images. | Mr. Darcy talk 18:28, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Since images created by NJ Gov't are copyrighted, then they CANNOT be uploaded to Wikipedia (even with permission from NJ Gov't). If you can show somewhere public where the government of New Jersey has released these works into the public domain, then they can be uploaded to Wikipedia. If you call someone in the state government who says that you can use the images, that is not sufficient for Wikipedia. Let me know if you have any other questions. | Mr. Darcy talk 19:30, 23 December 2006 (UTC)
That's an interesting statement. Leaving aside the question of why the State of New Jersey copyrights material, I wonder what this means with relation to the NJ Open Public Records Act? Essentially, most material outside the judicial branch of government in NJ that does not have an explicit reason to be confidential, is public. And of course, material has copyright protection even without an explicit copyright notice. Where does this leave us with respect to any state government records? Bill Michaelson 13:36, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Phillipsburg-Newark Expressway vs. Interstate 78[edit]

As an aspiring road geek, I have heard the term "Phillipsburg-Newark Expressway", but most people think of it as Interstate 78. Does it make sense to refer to it as "Phillipsburg-Newark Expressway (Interstate 78)" or shouldn't it be "Interstate 78 (Phillipsburg-Newark Expressway)" to reflect the more common name? Alansohn 22:22, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Re: CR 520 / Shore Points[edit]

Greetings again. You may remember a few months ago that when you added the Shore Points note to Exit 8A on the exit list on New Jersey Turnpike, I reverted it off because I was thinking of a different route. When you explained what you were thinking (612 to 520), I allowed it to stay. But the problem with this is that it's all original research. Let me explain...

When you made this edit, I looked it up on Google Maps, and a number of other trip planning sites. The shortest route from the Exit 8A ramp to Sea Bright (the end of 520) is not 520 all the way -- you take 18 to 36. Therefore, all these edits you've made saying that CR 520 serves as the connector from the Turnpike to Shore Points is incorrect. It's barely even a direct route, with a number of turns near downtown Red Bank and Rumson.

So then let's go all the way back to the Turnpike edit that sort of started all this. In order for someone to use Exit 8A for "Shore Points" -- whether they take 520 all the way or not, they would have had to get on the Turnpike at either Exit 9 (or further north) or Exit 8 (or further south). But if you do a search for New Brunswick (Exit 9) to Sea Bright, it has you taking the Turnpike to Exit 10 to the Parkway south to Exit 109. If you do a search for Hightstown (Exit 8) to Sea Bright, it has you taking NJ 33 to CR 537 to NJ 18 to NJ 36]. The simple fact is that Exit 8A is not used to access Shore Points, and that CR 520 is not a "connector" between the Turnpike in Jamesburg and the Parkway in Middletown. -- NORTH talk 23:54, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Your question[edit]

Moved from my talk page archive:

A question... I would like to upload an image for Route 92, created by the Army Corps. According to their website ([1]), it says that information is "considered public information and may be distributed or copied." Is this adequate enough to upload to Wiki? Mlaurenti 0:38, 5 Febuary 2007.
Yes, that means that they are placing the images in the public domain, so you're in the clear. Thanks for checking. | Mr. Darcy talk 16:22, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
Thank you. Now, since I am still not familar with licensing, I would like to know the following... 1. If I would like to edit an image (add municipal townlines), is that possible? 2. If yes, how would that image be licensed? Many thanks again! Mlaurenti 0:46, 5 February 2007.
Please add any questions for me to my talk page - you've been adding these to an archive page instead. THe answer to the first question is yes, unless their copyright release statement prohibits it. I would tag it as released by the author into the public domain, and then add a note to the image's talk page identifying the source image and explaining what you did to alter it. That should keep you in the clear and avoid any trouble from users who come along later and are confused about the image's sourcing. | Mr. Darcy talk 16:36, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Images[edit]

There's a discussion going on at WT:USRD#Photo galleries? that may affect the photographs you've uploaded to Wikipedia. Please feel free to share your opinion. -- NORTH talk 19:57, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Also, just by curiousity, what part of Jersey you live in? If you do at all? Because I live in Middlesex County.Mitch32contribs 17:10, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
I also live in Middlesex County. I'm curious as to where you (Mlaurenti, not Mitch) got information about the Milltown area development going around in Monroe Township or whatever it was. (I'm more familiar with: Jamesburg, Helmetta, Spotswood, the Brunswicks, Rossmoor and Concordia, and some parts of northern Monroe Township.) — Rickyrab | Talk 12:09, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
I admit to not being familiar with the name "Millstone Preserve", although I could probably tell you where the "Hills of Matchaponix" are (somewhere near Texas Road, I think), and could recall that there was a "stone museum" within a short drive from there (I'll have to go find it, but I was there as a kid and there were signs pointing to it.) I also know that there are at least two synagogues in Monroe Township (one's in the Concordia shopping center and another one is called the "Monroe Township Jewish Center - Congregation Etz Chaim"), and I think Rossmoor may have a congregation and Chabad-Lubavich might have an outlet somewhere. I could also tell you that Mill Lake School is not the original school by that name. (It was torn down and replaced by a school next to its original site, not too far from what was the old school's playground.) But I know next to nothing about the Millstone Preserve. — Rickyrab | Talk 02:23, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Discussion at WikiProject New Jersey[edit]

Hi, Mlaurenti, User:Nightscream and I had a disagreement over certain parts of NJ municipality articles; because the discussion could potentially affect hundreds of articles, we decided to bring the discussion to WikiProject New Jersey.

FYI I-80 in NJ[edit]

For future reference on other articles you may edit, I changed your edit which bolded the Interstate 80 link in the lead paragraph of Interstate 80 in New Jersey. It should be bold but not linked, per the WP:MOS which discourages bolded links. The USRD project has addressed this issue by developing the {{Highway detail hatnote}}, which is explained at WP:USRD/STDS#Lead. Thanks for contributing and please contact me with any questions.

Geotables and Chester NJ[edit]

I like the concept, but the formatting really stretched the article as it has to line up below the infobox. Is there a way to make it narrower (or maybe we move geography later in the article).Mattnad (talk) 15:00, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

I think I found a good solution. You may want to try it on other NJ pages you're improving. Mattnad (talk) 19:22, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm planning an expansion of article to include a "History" section. I ran into a similar problem as the geo table when I included a weather table [2]. Until there's more upfront content to push that table down, I'll leave it out.Mattnad (talk) 14:47, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Re:CR 612[edit]

That was done at the request of User:Mitchazenia. CR 612 was merged there as it is the continuation of Route 32. There are other examples of this in NJ such as County Route 638 (Atlantic County, New Jersey) redirecting to New Jersey Route 87. Dough4872 00:11, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

CR 612 vs. NJ 32[edit]

No matter how it goes the plan is that CR 612s article will cease to exist, I suggested NJ 32 because its a better merge target over the county route lists. This is not entirely unprecedented, such as New York State Route 101 or New York State Route 178 having CR segments covered in SR articles. I live in Middlesex County, I've been on the entirety of CR 612, I know how it runs. However, we had to get rid of the article some way or another. CR 638 and NJ 87 also is a combination that works.

New York Metro Area bridges[edit]

Thank you for your input into the New York Metropolitan Area article as well as on my talk page - you appear to be an expert in transportation in New Jersey. I am, however, restoring the Driscoll bridge as well as the Tappan Zee Bridge (and adding the Newark Bay Bridge, upon your mention), as well as a couple of other Hudson Valley bridges, because these are integral bridges within the NY Metro Area. The fact that they don't connect to the five boroughs of New York City (which has its own article) is irrelevant. The whole idea behind my revision of the New York Metro Area article, surprisingly sparsely detailed beforehand, was to clearly differentiate the Metro Area from the City itself. Therein, if you are also an expert in major Westchester, Long Island, and/or Western Connecticut bridges, plese feel free to add them to the list.

NJTP ramp opening dates[edit]

Hello, as possibly informative as including the dates when ramps were reconfigured might be, it makes the overall article inconsistent because the dates for the reconfigurations for many other interchanges aren't listed. I reverted the changes because of this inconsistency. In particular, there is no significant need to mention the "new ramps" at Exit 7A because the new interchange is essentially the same as the old interchange as far as connections go. Famartin (talk) 14:09, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

So long as the new configuration is stressed, I would be OK with mentioning the date of Exit 8's reconfiguration.

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:7a noise wall.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

  • Another one of your uploads, File:80Expy Knowlton.JPG, has also had some information automatically added. If you get a moment, please review the bot's contributions there as well. Thanks! Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 11:13, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

File source problem with File:P6070174.JPG[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:P6070174.JPG. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 12:05, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited United States Senate elections, 1974, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Stagnation. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Turnpike Widening change from future tense to past tense[edit]

Sometimes, it seems easier to spend billions widening tens of miles of the New Jersey Turnpike than to update the affected articles to indicate that the work has been completed. Kudos for going through all of the articles, for all of the municipalities and counties, to reflect that the project has actually been completed. Alansohn (talk) 18:09, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

New reply[edit]

You have received a reply from myself at Talk:United States Senate elections, 2018. I feel the same way you do about competitive US Senate seats. Classicalfan626 (talk) 15:13, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Knowlton Township, New Jersey and other corrections of NJTPA to DRJTBC[edit]

The mileage data lists mileage overseen by authorities without specifying the agency. In most cases the New Jersey Turnpike Authority is the body in question, but that's not always true. Despite my best efforts to list the correct agency, some slipped through the cracks and I thank you for the corrections as at Knowlton Township, New Jersey and other articles, especially where it is blindingly obvious that the Turnpike or Parkway don't even come close. The transportation edits are rounding out many of these articles. Thanks again. Alansohn (talk) 19:30, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

You're welcome. Mlaurenti (talk) 19:43, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
