Kind of a side step on this topic, but I have noticed lots of ramps/exits to Interstates that use the old shield generation standard with the space (which I don't get since ramps don't show names or shields).jasonh300 wrote:Or we can just leave it alone and concentrate on more important things than shielding. The key is to get everything to follow the Wiki standards so that when they do fix things on their end, everything will start working at once.
I thought I looked through the forums about that. Yes, just a comment - I just know that I had seen it at some pretty major interchanges and thought it was odd that they wouldn't have been fixed.kentsmith9 wrote:I believe there are a couple of threads here that discuss removing the extra space.

Thanks for the background info, and +1 on the general cleanupjasonh300 wrote:The space came from the basemap. It was on all interstates, all ramps with a "to" interstate name, and any other road that referenced an interstate (I- 10 Service Road).
Part of general cleanup should be to remove this space anywhere it shows up

If you look at all four of road segments, they're all named differently, with 37 and 45 (Houston) being named the same. 37 and 35 both show shields in San Antonio, but 35 stops showing shields at 1604. After that it's spotty. I haven't seen a shield on 10 or 410 at all. This bug HAS to be a code bug somewhere.

I don't know the answer, either, but perhaps worth investigating.

The actual Interstate is set to freeway and named "I-44 E" and "I-44 W" but does not produce the shield icon.
From what I understand, putting the cardinal directions in I-44 E, it wont produce a shield. They were trying to get Waze to accept the cardinals for shields, but nothing yet.
