Long list of roads with no description[edit]

I deleted a list of roads with no description and got reverted without comment. In order to attempt to avoid an edit war, I'm starting this thread. Can anyone explain why this is useful to travelers?

"Other roads include the N114 (EN 114), N114-1 (EN 114-1), N115 (EN 115), N360 (EN 360), and N361 (EN 361)."

One point of style on this site is to avoid long lists:

"Long undifferentiated lists of hotels, attractions, cities, anything, are only marginally useful to the traveler"

So my point of view would be that either each of these roads should be given a description or the list should be re-deleted.

Please tell me why I'm wrong and this undifferentiated list should remain as is. Thanks. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:01, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Perhaps instead of deleting "marginally useful" information, you can consider taking that information and building upon it as I have now done. As unpaid volunteers on this project, we don't always have time to make everything instantaneously perfect. Marginally useful is better than nothing at all. —Nelson Ricardo (talk) 22:13, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
Now it's useful. I'm an unpaid volunteer, too; did you think admins were paid? In your case, it looks like it would have been best to give you more time, but I had no way to know that, and you could have included an edit summary explaining that you were reverting my edit as part of a plan to add more information about these roads. Please consider using edit summaries whenever they could be helpful. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:17, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. By "we" I meant you and I. I know that you don't profit either. —Nelson Ricardo (talk) 22:42, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Long lists of settlements[edit]

Please have a look at this diff I am sorry if I might sound blunt but: What purpose for the traveler does that serve? Hobbitschuster (talk) 00:14, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Travellers don't always stick to the road most travelled. Some people like to explore little corners that others haven't discovered. This information provides a springboard for such exploration. Much like the initially bare list of roads mentioned in the section above, the lists of settlements can serve as inspiration for expanding the article and making it more useful and informative for our travellers. —Nelson Ricardo (talk) 02:13, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
