Good idea. Are there any obvious disambiguations from the state abbreviations?

MP, MH, (maybe FM and NE) at a quick glance.

You might consider adding ROTW as a redirect to this as well.

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.

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.

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

Looks to be true. I started a new thread on that topic if anyone would like to contribute.
kentsmith9, the link you provided new thread on that topic does not exist.

As it turns out there already was a dormant thread on the topic. The thread Kentsmith9 started has been merged with the old thread

Another search term for the "a" hotkey issue in WME would be the variants of [dim turn arrows].

I added a bunch of different "Dim" variations. Let me know if you think of any others, but if you only search for "Dim SOMTHING" it should find one of these for users to pick. When you type too many words in the search, nothing will come up. :(

That's a shame, though goggle will tell you use less keywords to get broader (better) results.

You can also try
Dim arrow(s)
Dim red arrow(s)
Dim orange arrow(s)
Dim green arrow(s)

Dimmed... With all the variations

It be interesting to see the search stats after a month or so, which ones get used the most and build off that for more options.

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..."
