Is this list going to be limited to the transcribed list or grow beyond it? Are all the lettered streets from the south side going to be included? --Lkseitz (talk) 04:46, 30 January 2019 (PST)

  • I hadn't thought that far ahead... but, no, it needn't be limited and the letter streets should be included. It would be awesome if we had a date for each change. Maybe I'll put in "1932" for all the transcribed ones for now. (That date can be refined whenever we can document the actual change.) --Dystopos (talk) 06:29, 30 January 2019 (PST)

Renamed twice


  • And I guess someone will have to teach me how to get 1st to sort ahead of 10th. --Dystopos (talk) 13:34, 30 January 2019 (PST)
    • I turns out Mediawiki has a new way to do this. I've done all the 1st Avenues/Streets and one 9th Avenue for proof of concept. All the single digit streets need a sort value that matches their name, but with a 0 in front. --Lkseitz (talk) 05:44, 31 January 2019 (PST)
      • I'm glad I'm not the only one who keeps typing "Pratty City." --Dystopos (talk) 08:37, 31 January 2019 (PST)


Would a "Renamed streets" category be helpful or redundant? I'm not sure we can call them "former streets" if they're still there. --Lkseitz (talk) 07:00, 2 February 2019 (PST)

  • Good point. --Dystopos (talk) 06:38, 4 February 2019 (PST)
    • Thanks, but you didn't answer the first question. --Lkseitz (talk) 06:01, 5 February 2019 (PST)
