why adding tag withou proposal?

you'll add lot's of tag witouth proposal and form some tag there's already a tag available. -Yod4z (talk) 07:17, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi Yod4z, I agree with you that it is not a good thing to have duplicate tags. However, it's not always easy to decide which tags are duplicates and which tags have a subtle difference in meaning (for example office=estate_agent versus shop=estate_agent). Also, I'm only documenting tags that are currently in widespread use, not creating new ones. A proposal is not required for that (many tags have been already documented without proposal). In case the tag added to the wiki conflicts with a formally accepted tag, I always mention so on the page, and if the formally accepted tag is also more widely used, I mention that use of the other tag is discouraged. If a tag conflicts with another defacto tag, I also mention so. I hope we can cut down on the number of duplicate tags in the future, but in cases where users disagree, it seems we cannot do much more than document both alternatives.

Thanks for setting up the Tag:leisure=fitness_centre page properly. It's the best tag I reckon. But the redirect of Gym / Fitness centre needs to wait a bit longer (like a few more years I reckon). Explaining a bit more here: Talk:Gym / Fitness centre#leisure=fitness_centre is winning. Basically ...slowly slowly catchy monkey :-) -- Harry Wood (talk) 02:00, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Fine with me, thanks for updating the page! Math1985 (talk) 07:57, 9 December 2015 (UTC)


Hello, leisure=ice_rink is not bin rendert. See here

What is the reason for that?

1. Incorrect tagging. We should use leisure=pitch + sport=ice_skating

2. Incorrect rendering. leisure=ice_rink should be rendert like leisure=pitch


Hi, to keep the discussion central, could you please ask this at Math1985 (talk) 08:22, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
I am not familiar in that and my english is not so good. May be you can do it?--geozeisig (talk) 09:29, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
I think your English is quite fine! I'd really prefer if you create a ticket yourself. I get quite a lot of requests like this through different channels, like e-mail/forums, which takes me quite a lot of time, si it's much easier for me if you'd create the ticket!


Just a heads up that I have some questions on Template_Talk:Discouraged--Jojo4u (talk) 23:03, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Icon for supermarket in black?

Why should be the icon for supermarket in black? See: File:Supermarket-14.svg Category:Shop_icons --geozeisig (talk) 09:30, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Oops, I wanted to upload a new version from the Git repository, but didn't notice that the repository versions are colored black and white (they are coloured in the cartocss code). Do you know how I revert an image upload? The Undo button doesn't seem to do anything.Math1985 (talk) 15:48, 28 September 2016 (UTC)


Hi, I would like to help with the effort to port the map features lists to Taginfo-backed taglists. As you are already very active, I wanted to ask in advance how I could help in the best way. Should I just pick any sub-templates on Map features which have not yet been ported and start working? I'm aware that we need to make sure the infobox templates and the map features are in sync before we can merge them. Are there other "best practices" to pay attention to? And is there a page to coordinate efforts or something like that? --Tordanik 18:54, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi, great that you want to help! I think just picking one of the subtemplates to port is the best way to help. I just created a project page, see Taginfo/Taglists/Wiki_project. Is this what you had in mind? Feel free to change anything you like on the project page! Math1985 (talk) 21:36, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the helpful instructions, that answers my questions. :) I will start porting templates then. --Tordanik 15:12, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
Hi again, thanks for taking the time to review my first taglist! I've got a question about your edit. Why is the link to the template no longer useful? If I understand the purpose of that link correctly, it's to help inexperienced wiki users who attempt to edit Map Features to find the location where they can do so. (Clicking edit on Map Features itself, which they normally would attempt, doesn't work.) That aspect hasn't been changed by the port, has it? I would like to clarify this before proceeding with the next templates. --Tordanik 23:15, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi, thank you for contributing! I don't think the part 'wiki template with a default description in English' is correct anymore: the new template doesn't contain any descriptions. Perhaps we could change the text a bit, so that it states that descriptions/pictures can be changed by editing the tags's infoboxes, and that the choice of tags can be changed by editing the wiki template? I think this text itself should be a template as well, so we can easily maintain it. Actually I'm not even sure if we should display this to people reading the page, maybe including it as a comment in the source would work as well? Math1985 (talk) 23:42, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
