  • christian_quaker (on advice of a quaker friend, not to be shown as a normal church but as a "Friends Meeting House")
Can this just be "quaker", are there other forms of Quakers? -- Johndrinkwater 22:06, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
Are buildings specifically built for quaker meetings? I went to a Quaker school, and all meetings would take place in a variety of halls that would just be normal halls the rest of the time. So in that case it would be the same as tagging something like sunday coffee mornings. I'm not particually bothered on the matter, but tags should only be made if nessesery. Also I've heard Quakers clame to not be christian_quakers but just quakers. Ben. 03:47 18th Decemeber 2006 (UTC)
  • How about promoting place_of_worship to a key. Instead of having amenity=place_of_worship and then religion=* and denomination=*, we would have place_of_worship=christian for instance and get rid of the religion key. I don't think churches fit in well with the "amenity" name, they are different from post boxes or telephones. Joto 11:18, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
