Hi. I notice you edited the tagwatch pages to make them human-readable, and compared them to the map features pages. Were you aware that these wiki pages are the input into tagwatch software, which needs updating if the format of its input wiki-pages change? (apologies if you did update the software, I just can't see any changes checked-in to its SVN repository)

Regarding the 'completeness' comment, the output of tagwatch is typically more "complete" than the map features, because it lists all the tags which people are actually using. The input pages you edited are an additional description/photo which give more detail/illustration on some common tags in the output. Ojw 08:44, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

No, I did not know that. It seemed like just another page that could act as a guide for tagging. I hope that did not break anything. If you believe I did, I won't hold it against you if you revert my change :-). Even better, if you have the skill to do so, you could update the tool to accept the (in my opinion) much better format. That said, I find it quite strange that there is no warning on the pages to avoid such edits as mine. There should also be generic examples of the accepted format and links to whatever tool is using the data. Gorm 14:08, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi Gorm, maybe you want to comment on your addition of kg to the units and maxaxleload pages in the discussion on Talk:Map_Features/Units#Reasoning_for_kg? --Tordanik 23:23, 2 September 2012 (BST)
