Of course anyone who is interested is welcome to also create redirects. Just use the format:
Code: Select all
#REDIRECT [[PAGENAME]]

Like:
Code: Select all
#REDIRECT [[Keyboard_shortcuts#Transparent]]

Note the underline does not matter.


Is that a challenge I smell? ;-)

Heard it referred to in WME chat tonight as Ghost Arrows, and got suggestions to use Pale, washed out, and unclickable as search terms. If I get a chance I'll try to add them, if anyone else wants to go ahead first, please be my guest.

I added ... turns, turn restrictions, turn arrows, and turn restriction arrows for all those (Ghost, Pale, Unclickable, and Washed out).
I also added all 5 options for "See through..."

If anyone in the future complains they cannot figure out what causes this issue, they never looked in the Wiki! :lol:

Screw it. I'm going to bust out the Websters Dictionary and redirect anything and everything I can.

Whats a good redirect for the word posterior?
So what if the English language has over a million words. That's just a million reasons to get better at wiki editing.:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

There are a number of redirect possibilities for posterior, but we are not that kind of group. :lol:

The turn arrows (restrictions) are a relatively common question that arises in the wme chat channel. Thus for that reason, it is good to have some "hand-holding" for new editors on them.

Thanks everybody.
Enjoying my Waze time, looking for additional ways to help.
