There was no link to the section I was looking for either, not that I'm sure there should have been one. But possibly a "Dead End" that populates in the search box and leads to the section in the JSG, that would have helped.

Good idea. Done.

Slightly related I was trying to point a new editor in the right direction today to restrict dead-end U-turns and typing Dead end in the search brought me to the JSG. Considering this is information on restricting the turn in the junction node at the end of a dead-end segment, I suggest a link to that section be placed in the JSG, or copied / moved there as appropriate.

All entries completed for all the states. I also moved all pages related to the same state as subpages under the primary page for a state (which was typically the resources page).

I could not find any info on WME Chat, I'm not sure if it even exists in the wiki or still needs to be created.

Looks to be true. I started a new thread on that topic if anyone would like to contribute.

[EDIT: The thread above has since been merged with another older thread now holding the conversation.]

Searching for [unlock request] leads to page with no instructions on how to request an unlock it should be fixed.

Agreed, the link was going to a spot further out on the limb than required and the reference on that page was not very focused. I fixed both to lead directly to the section you proposed.
