Deletion discussion

{{Delete|no occurrence in the database https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/?key= amenity&value=qr }}

@tigerfell, if we don't delete Proposed features/QR code, why should the data item be deleted? Shouldn't we just set the status to abandoned? Just curious what should be our general approach to such things. thx. --Yurik (talk) 15:56, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

Well, I do not mind both options, but it would be good to have some consistency. I thought the convention was to delete data items that reference tags with no occurrence in the database, but maybe you are right in keeping items as long as there is some reference to them.
Could you please do me a favour, decide that for yourself and write it down as a guideline somewhere (maybe including the reasoning?). As I said, I thought of consistency with the case of Item:Q7167. I think the events at Wiki:Deletion policy indicate clearly, that if you do not set up a guideline early enough, you can spend days of your life discussing and in the end, the voters did not even like the "consensus" and you end up with nothing. Some other things went wrong there as well, but this was the lesson I learnt. --Tigerfell This user is member of the wiki team of OSM (Let's talk) 22:01, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
Heh, true that. Well, my thinking is as follows: if there is any regular wiki page here (aside from discussions or user pages) that describe a key/tag/rel/..., we should have a corresponding data item. Even if it's just a proposal, even an abandoned one. We should also have a data item if we have any OSM data with it (as described in item creation section). Other than that, I don't see any reason to have a data item.... Something like that? --Yurik (talk) 22:48, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
Sounds good. --Tigerfell This user is member of the wiki team of OSM (Let's talk) 06:11, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
