Report of Joint Board on Interstate Highways October 30, 1925[edit]

That report is available in its entirety on Wikisource at s:Report of Joint Board on Interstate Highways October 30, 1925. NE2 uploaded a partial scan of the one appendix to Commons at some point, but we've got the full report transcribed now. I repointed the citation on U.S. Route 270 (Georgia–North Carolina) to link there and corrected details of the citation in the process. Imzadi 1979  04:24, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

@Imzadi1979: thank you for your edits on the page. On the references that have a "via", shouldn't the link be added? Morriswa (Charlotte Allison) (talk) 14:23, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Via shouldn't really be an external link. We should be limiting the external links within citations to the link we'd want a reader to click to access the source. Externally linking other parts of a citation invites readers to click the wrong link and end up someplace other than the specific source. I also minimize the number of other wikilinks within a citation for that reason. We want to steer a reader to the right destination for many of the same reasons why we limit the number of wikilinks in running prose. Imzadi 1979  15:48, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Otsego ny[edit]

Do you agree with imzzdaaadiajubas request to delete Draft:County routes in Otsego County, New York i dont see a problem with adding a list to add alongside the other list like nassau counties. what do you think? Bacardi379 (talk) 03:19, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

I see that there is already a List of county routes in Otsego County, New York page. Is that why that user wants to delete the draft page? I didn't see the discussion, so I didn't leave a comment there. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Did you not see the pre-existing page before you made the draft? Morriswa (Charlotte Allison) (talk) 14:35, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Morriswa: the discussion you were looking for was deleted before this thread was started. He was told by Mitchazenia that the style of lists in the draft was no longer used. Granted, Mitchazenia could have explained why they're not used any more, but that's another story. –Fredddie 15:27, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Team Barnstar Hires.png The Teamwork Barnstar
Just wanted to say, whenever I edit something to something, you would make it better, and correct it if need. Thanks! :) BashurMan (talk) 22:37, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
@BashurMan: thank you so much for the barnstar. Unlike some editors, I don't receive many of them. So, I was shocked when I saw that you sent me one. Morriswa (Charlotte Allison) (talk) 00:10, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

Colorado State Highway 78[edit]

In the major intersections box how do i fix the link for Greenhill Divide? Thanks Bacardi379 (talk) 14:13, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

New Mexico infobox_road[edit]

Could you tell me how to add "frontage roads" to the infobox under highway system? Id like to learn how to do it as well. Thanks Bacardi379 (talk) 14:16, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

@Bacardi379, Imzadi1979, and Rschen7754: can you elaborate as to exactly what you are asking? Also, use Template talk:Infobox road and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. Roads, too. I'm well-versed in Wikipedia editing, but there are many, many things that I don't know. If I can help, I intend to. Thank you for considering asking me for your help. Morriswa (Charlotte Allison) (talk) 14:37, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
@Imzadi1979, Rschen7754, and Morriswa: what im trying to say is in the infobox for each highway article in New Mexico, under Highway System next to Interstate•U.S.•State, Frontage should be added.Bacardi379 (talk) 16:42, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
@Bacardi379: we can add a link to List of frontage roads in New Mexico, but I think that you might be better off to do something else. These sound similar to Michigan's connectors, which have a table in their own section at the bottom of List of state trunkline highways in Michigan. Perhaps it's giving the frontage roads too much prominence for their low priority/importance to create that RCS-style listicle. If so, it would be better to collapse them into individual listings in a single table and placing that table at the bottom of the state route list. Imzadi 1979  17:47, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Hey thanks![edit]

Hey thanks for the facelift on the Polk County State Aid Highway 21 page. Just curious, how did you make the CSAH 3 the pentagon shape as opposed to the rectangle? Been trying to do that on a different page but keep getting the rectangle. Appreciate the help thanks! --GMoney0805 (talk) 22:24, 22 March 2019 (UTC)GMoney0805

@GMoney0805: Thank you for your appreciation. If you are talking about the one in the "Major intersections" table, then just look at the code. It will help you do it, too. If you are talking about the one in the infobox, then I suggest asking at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. Roads. The WikiProject is the "governing body" of U.S. roads here on Wikipedia. Please, come to me for any questions you might have. I will help as best I can, but they are much more advanced than I am. Morriswa (Charlotte Allison) (talk) 07:05, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
@Morriswa: I will check that out thanks again!
@GMoney0805: No problem! Morriswa (Charlotte Allison) (talk) 00:30, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
