With respect to the discussion on "non-commercial is preferred" in SWG. Perhaps rather than tying the preference to commercial vs non-commercial, it should be "comes from within the OSM community or not". One of the main reasons for having multiple tile layers is to show and advertise the power of what can be done with the data. At the same time it could also show off the power of the community and how easily one can create great new styles from the data by preferring . This would automatically give a certain degree of divide between commercial vs non-commercial however without explicitly saying so. It would also be easier to justify why that would be a relevant criterion. --Amm 00:40, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

What counts as "within the OSM community"? If they are using OSM data, and wanting their tiles to be on (2 requirements) then surly they are part of the community? - LastGrape/Gregory 22:42, 16 May 2011 (BST)

It seems as if guidelines to retiring tile layers are missing. So once in, always in?

If that is not the case, I don't quite understand why the cyclemap layer is still available. - User:SimonPoole 18:37, 20 May 2011 (MET)
