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)
