Catalan Rules

Skywave, I see that you've added text fallback for rendering Catalan place names. I think that such customizations are best implemented using a separate Wiki page (I see that you already created one), since this page is meant to contain standard rules, not specific ones for your local needs. Otherwise it will become bloated with too many regional preferences. Standard rules should contain more general stuff: instead of using TagToUse=name:ca;name:oc;name, why not TagToUse=reg_name;nat_name;name? This way it becomes applicable to all users, not just Catalans ;) --Breki 07:59, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

This is an mistake, i pasted it to the wrong page. Reverted it. --Skywave 08:52, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

New additions

What's your policy on adding new stuff to this page? because I noticed when using Kosmos for Image:Stratford-sketchy-lines.gif, that there's a handful of missing tags. See where I've labelled them 'NEW' in the rules lower down on that image page. -- Harry Wood 23:51, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

This is a wiki page just like any other and you (and everybody else) are free (and certainly welcome) to contribute new rules or update existing ones. This is what Kosmos rendering rules are all about. Of course, if someone plans to add very specific rules, maybe another rules page would be better than this standard one (see [[1]]). I'm not talking about your rules though, they are pretty general and would be a nice addition. --Breki 05:22, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
