Since its introduction, this tag has been redefined (, ) to imply foot=yes and bicycle=yes. Is this commonly accepted? If yes, it should not only be in the text, but also in the template. --Tordanik 18:49, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
- It was merely not explicited at the origin, but it would be clearly implied by the commonsensical definition of bollard. Circeus 00:19, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
The article reads:
- By default access=no foot=yes bicycle=yes is implied. So tag who can pass the node.
The first sentence suggests that if "access=no foot=yes bicycle=yes" is applicable, I shouldn't have to add extra access, foot or bicycle tags. However, the second sentence tells me to add those tags. What's a simple soul like me to do? --Sybren 16:18, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Automatic, "Rising" Bollards
Some bollards retract into the ground automatically, either in response to a key system or on a timer. A couple of schemes have emerged for representing this, though neither
is in particularly widespread use :
- Tag as above, and add bollard=rising. 44 uses as of 2011-04-26.
- Tag as above, and add automatic=yes. 29 probable uses as of 2011-04-26.
The bollard=* scheme is more extensible, and is probably the better tag. TODO: suggest some other values, or use a Taginfo box to refer readers to a dynamic list.
