My Goal as an Editor on this Wiki

Introduction

When I am viewing this wiki for reference while editing OpenStreetMap or when I am contributing to JOSM svn, I've noticed that this wiki does not have very many contributors that are able to maintain and update current information about the tag pages. Especially when I've seen conflicting information or definitions used to describe tags with inaccuracies on other pages. I feel the information that is inaccurate and outdated will make it difficult for OSM map editors to find answers. Which in turn may flood OSM with incorrect tags.

Goal

My goal on this wiki is to modernize the wiki by collaborating information from the map features, tag and value pages. While doing this I want to fix page formatting and the numerous grammar and spelling errors for the native English language.

My Process

My process for editing is simple but extensive. I do this by checking each edit before submitting. I start by viewing the history on all related pages in question, while loosely looking for pages with data that is six months+ old. I collect data by collaborating information from the map features, tag and value pages. I also use the mailing list archives, taginfo, and use different overpass scripts to check for official uses and/or combinations that may be missing.

Float an image right with an Infobox

InfoBox Example
Key=example
Value=example
Image
Description
Elements
Combination
Status
A designated footway.

Using this example for posting an image will respect the Infobox that is typically on the right side.

<div style="float:right">[[File:Path-footdesignated.jpg|upright=0.6|thumb|right|A designated footway.]]</div>

The image on the right is respecting the infobox on the right while text wrapping on the left side. Without using this code the image would typically be pushed below the infobox on the right side. -->
