Usagae on areas
Regarding this revert. This tag should not be used on areas. This is a linear feature like waterway=river|stream|ditch|drain|canal and should be drawn in the flow direction of the water. The german page was first and it was inaccurately translated to english respectivly the english page was then further changed to a more misleading description. When you draw it as area then this is additionally to the linear waterway. The area is then tagged with natural=water + water=fish_pass and the linear way with waterway=fish_pass. Note that these are 3 different tags.--Klumbumbus (talk) 16:15, 14 November 2016 (UTC)
- Oups, I'm sorry, you are right. I don't know why but I'm the one who miss read the page. The "on areas" part should go on a different page for the tag water=fish_pass if needed sletuffe (talk) 16:35, 14 November 2016 (UTC)
