The difference between rental and sharing is membership: rental is a transient thing, and sharing is a membership thing. Brycenesbitt (talk) 01:55, 4 March 2014 (UTC) -- yes, agree. That's why I suggested a separate tag from "amenity=boat_rental" "amenity=boat_sharing".--Nounours77 (talk) 17:32, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

why my conditional vote

Unfortunately, I see absolutely no instructions for voting (that's the OSM wiki), hence to abstain.

Absolutely sorry to disagree. I praise standardization but I think that a more structured proposition, as I explain in my today's message to Tagging@OSM, that covers more features in a unified, extensible way will be more rewarding (and would interest more voters). That's in fact your solution # 3 which I'm supporting. Papou (talk) 19:54, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

I completely agree with you that the aim are more generalized tags. All the discussions I followed during the last months favor for more limited tags inspired by current usage. Therefore, I have chosen solution #1, in the hope that we can extend it later to a more generalized tagging scheme. I invite you to work with me on that, although my thoughts are more going direction #2 boat_rental and boat_sharing seem more connected to me than boat_rental and book_rental --Nounours77 (talk) 13:28, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I see absolutely no instructions for voting (that's the OSM wiki), hence "maybe".

My reason for not agreeing is regarding what you already say and a particular case of mine. If (you complain that) people are not interested in voting topics they have no interest in, why split those topics in yet smaller pieces with yet smaller interest.

My own problem is that I have to tag what they call ride sharing, sort of organized hitch hiking. Do I really have any chance getting a ride_sharing tag voted? And what about its rendering? That's why I regret the tag is not car_to_use as you call it, or even get_a_vehicle or something.
I would simply have to add without any fuss:
pooling=yes or even
and in your case
sharing=yes or even, next to mine, sharing.boat=yes
sharing.boat.operator=* etc.

Please review some of the new key names

I know this proposal just ended, and I definitely am not against it. I simply would like you to reconsider the names for the keys boattype=* and number_plate=*. I would recommend to use boat:type=* (or boat_type=* and boat:plate_number=* (or plate_number=*) --Jgpacker (talk) 17:25, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
