Welcome to the U.S. Roads WikiProject planning department! Use this page for sharing ideas for project goals and drives, personal goals, and aspirations for featured content.

Official project goals for this year[edit]

  • Improve nationwide Interstate and U.S. Highway articles
This year, we want to improve the nationwide Interstate and U.S. Highway articles. A lot of them have state-detail articles, and their info should be summed up in their corresponding main article. Track progress here
In celebration of our 10th anniversary we would like to decrease the cumulative WikiWork by a net 1010 classes (currently 962 remaining)

Objectives[edit]

These are non-prose tasks that will take a longer time to complete, but have no set time limit for completion.

  1. Rewriting templates to use Lua
  2. Eliminating hardcoded junction lists
    Category:U.S. Roads project articles with a hardcoded junction list
  3. Adding maps to all upper-tier articles
    Category:U.S. Roads project upper tier articles without a map
  4. Adding KML files for all B-Class and above articles

Ideas[edit]

Portal links drive[edit]

Proposed by Imzadi 1979 

Another secondary drive we could do is to make sure that every article has a "See also" section with links to the appropriate state and roads portals. An AWB run wouldn't be as effective because there are two ways to link, using either {{portal}} or {{portal-inline}} depending on if the article already has a proper See also section or not.

Assessment audit[edit]

Proposed by —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY]

We may well need to do this anyway, so perhaps instead of this being a primary goal it could be something done in conjunction with another goal to be selected. The oldest audits will be coming up on 2 years ago starting this spring.

B drive[edit]

Proposed by —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY]

Somewhat the opposite of a stub drive...perhaps an goal to get a certain number or percentage of USRD articles to B-Class over the course of the year. This would allow people to build on the foundation of the two stub drives and use the freshly minted base of destubbed articles as a platform to expand them to B-Class.

Challenges[edit]

You clinch it, you improve it[edit]

Proposed by –Fredddie

A number of us use the Clinched Highway Mapping website. Why not make an effort to improve any article for a route you have "clinched"?

Personal goals[edit]

Good Article pledge[edit]

Every month in 2012, I pledge to get at least one article to Good Article status.
