Toilet updates

Hi, sure. Let's move the toilets discussion on. I don't believe in or trust the "voting" practices here, so it's best to just discuss and make the edits. --achadwick (talk) 12:06, 7 August 2013 (UTC) (watching for the duration of this discussion, plus two weeks)

Since voting has already started, and since I want to move on to other efforts, I'd rather take out any element that threatens progress toward implementation. Tag toilets:disposal= does not need a boolean... if a toilet complex is of split type one can simply make two toilet outlines. I do object to the count addition, but only because it is so late in the process, most votes are already in, and I do not wish to start over, nor do I want to mess with engaging with folks. If you feel that level of granularity is necessary then by all means bring it up as a next step. toilets:wheelchar and wheelchair have just been voted on in the last month, they should have some time to run. While the common western case of "toilets:position=seated;urinal" is a bit awkward and wordy, the intent is clear and those nodes could be converted mechanically. My JOSM preset offers three options: "squat", "seated", "seated;urinal" which covers a huge fraction of cases. I am not personally interested in toilet counts, because what matters to me is how long the line is, and how clean it is. I only occupy one stall at a time in most cases. Also because of my gender I can generally only count the facilities in half of each toilet facility, and I am unwilling to ask a person of the opposite gender to do the counting for me.

Any objection to me adding

  • capacity:disabled={<count>|yes|no} — number of toilets specially adapted for use by disabled persons,
  • capacity:{seated|squat|urinal|*}={<count>|yes|no} — number by usage position (overlap with disabled or other types is fine if a stall is both),
  • capacity={<count>|yes|no} — ­number of toilets in total;

while retaining wheelchair={yes|no} for general wheelchair accessibility, but removing toilets:position=*? Toilet blocks in some parts of the world may have a mixture of types, and tagging using this style would avoid a semicolon value separator, which improves machine readability (a Good Thing). --achadwick (talk)


Does this need a disposal:x=<boolean> pattern too? Not sure it does, but I'm working under an assumption it will be the same for all toilets in a block and that if not it's OK to just tag the majority type that way. --achadwick (talk)

boat_sharing - can't send you mail?

Dear Brycenesbitt, sorry to contact you here, couldn't send you a mail ... thanks for voting for my boat_sharing proposal. But: what the heck is a zipboat??? Never heard this word... what do you want to say me with that? :-) Have a nice day!!! --Nounours77 (talk) 06:48, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Zipboat is a play on Zipcar, a prominent car sharing operator in the USA Brycenesbitt (talk)

Water_tap discussion

Bryce, thanks for your comment on my proposal, I've posted an answer. --Kotya (talk) 21:58, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

removed: prefix

Hi, I have changed quite a bit the : removed=* tag page you created in 2013. Do you still think the new version kept it's original meaning ? In particular, when you created it did you have in mind that all "removed" feature from real life should be moved to removed: namespace, or, like I suggested now, only feature with an high chance of beeing re-added from other sources ? Comments welcome on the talk page sletuffe (talk) 14:44, 26 November 2014 (UTC)



what's the point of your last change on page Tag:waterway=water_point?

It is a circular refference now.
