Washington Wiki

Postby nhanway » Fri Jan 10, 2014 6:08 pm

This is a repost of a Topic on the Washington Forum. I wasnt getting any responses so I reposted it here!

I made a draft of the washington wiki page on my user profile. check it out

I wanted to start this topic to:
1. Edit for spelling or unclear writing.
2. Find out if all my work is correct
Functional Classification Guild is a controversial topic and can be discussed.
3. See if anything else should be added!


Please help me out and post any suggestions. :)
Thanks

Cool.

I thought I saw two links to the To-Do list; one at the top and one in a section near the end. I proposed just keeping the one near the end.

I just added some Plink examples of driveways to help clarify the driveway "Rules / guidelines".

1. Fixed
2 and 3. Fixed added "Currently only illegal in Whatcom County" I'm not aware of any other county's that have ticket cameras as illeal.
4. Fixed
5. It seems to be the standard in Washington to mark alleys as Private. If people have objections we could start a topic in the forum to change this...
6. Fixed
7. Added link. Fixed
8. Fixed
9. Fixed. Changed the wording to leave it up the editors discretion.
10. Should I just delete the section To Do List and the link in this page? Is that what your suggesting?
11. Fixed

Thanks for your all your suggestions. I will now post it and link it to categories USA and Washington :)

I don't personally have any reason not to publish it. Nice work.

I would recommend a few things to update on the page if you are so inclined:

1. Correct the "llegal" typo in camera section.
2. List all the counties in which cameras are not legal. If only Whatcom then maybe say "currently only illegal in Whatcom County."
3. In this first section: you have a link at the end that does not make sense and a link to a non-existent template.
4. Same section: clarify the Urban and Rual refer to WSDOT definitions.
5. Alleys: I think we discussed the general consensus was to mark Alleys as Parking Lot Roads https://www.waze.com/wiki/Alley#Parking_Lot_Road. Some states were deviating from that, but I think most have more recently started agreeing to move to PLot. Maybe I am wrong.
6. Typo in phrase "then it not normally mapped"
7. Driveways: I think Washington is following our recently created driveway page, so you could replace that content with the link to simplify.
8. Time Restricted Turns: since you just link to the page, you may want to just say "Washington follows the general recommendations for Time Restricted Turns" and hyperlink it that way.
9. Fake Cameras: I think Alan mentioned in his opinion fake camera should not be marked. You may want to get more feedback from other Washington editors on that. And in the Wiki page you can say some editors may or may not map fake cameras. I personally agree with Alan.
10. Remove the initial to-do list since you have it in its own section.
11. You can use the Red Template for your initial clarification that this page is a work in progress until you get most of it sorted out. Then you could put a link to the Washington forum to a thread you create to collect input on changes and improvements to discuss for the page.

So does anyone have any objections to me posting this wiki officially?

Note than unless someone actually verifies them, they will automatically be removed from the map after about 15 days if not verified, so you can move your efforts to other productive activities if you want.

Fixed! :)

I changed the wording in the Camera section to clarify that they are not legal in all counties! Also I added a list of counties that Cameras are not legal.
