Carlock, IL[edit]

I noticed that on the Carlock, IL page it said that Carlock was "located south of the hard road, Route 9, connecting Bloomington and Peoria.[2]" The source cited is: History of the Carlock Family - Marion Pomeroy Carlock - Published 1929. Actually the hard road is Route 150. I have no official source to back this up except that I and my family have lived there for several generations and if you look at a map, it is clear it is Route 150. . . Route 9 is several miles to the south of Carlock. So either the copy in the article was typed incorrectly or the actual source is incorrect. Rhondabaer (talk) 19:55, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

The source is probably correct. If you look on old topo maps, US 150 was IL 9 back then, before there was a US 150. It apparently was IL 9 up to 1936.[1] --Dual Freq (talk) 22:08, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
Dual Freq's source (n9jig) also implies that what is now IL 9 from Pekin to Bloomington was IL 164 (164 later being reused for a different road in western Illinois). IL 9's routing was moved and the numbers for IL 98 and IL 164 were re-assigned just after US 150 was assigned to existing roads in the mid-1930s. --Closeapple (talk) 10:15, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 22:31, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
