poor value

The value 'atv' is poorly chosen, as the acronym is not obvious for anybody not into quad cycling. See the long disambiguation page for this 3-letter acronym.--Polarbear w (talk) 22:06, 3 October 2017 (UTC)

ATV sales

It's not always obvious if a shop sells new vehicles, used vehicles, or both. I'd prefer to used "atv:sales=yes" to be a non-specific "yes, this store sells vehicles", while "atv:sales:second_hand" with a value of "yes", "no", or "only" is used to indicate used-vehicle sales. --Carnildo (talk) 18:21, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

Just for the records: there's also the possibility to use Key:second_hand
But I think this way it's difficult to know which used products are sold in case of shops which sell several products. (i.e. atv/motorcycle/bicycle).
How about atv:second_hand=yes/no/only (implies sales) ? Rtfm Rtfm (talk) 18:30, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
Since a shop=atv could sell any of vehicles, parts, tires, or clothes, it's useful to specify which it sells second-hand. --Carnildo (talk) 07:15, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
At the moment (with the current definitions) you could use
* atv:sales=yes;used (if they sell both, new and used)
* motorcycle:sales=*
* service:bicycle:retail=*
I personally don't like the "service" part in the bicycle tags, as I can't see the advantage of calling it a "service".
I'd prefer bicycle:retail=* or bicycle:sales=* (as sales is easier understood by many).
Do you think the "second hand" tag needs to be separated from atv:sales ? It's recommended in Semi-colon_value_separator to avoid using semicolon separators in "main" tags such as amenity, but you often have to use it anyway in the brand=* tag (in case of motorcycle dealers), so I think it's o.k. to just use *:sales=* Rtfm Rtfm (talk) 11:03, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
I'd prefer to avoid semicolons except for actual lists of things. "Brand" is the sort of thing you'd make a list of, so semicolons are okay. "Does it sell vehicles" isn't the sort of thing you'd make a list of, so semicolons are to be avoided. --Carnildo (talk) 06:16, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
