Proposed merge

I partially disagree with the merge proposal. The page Directional should be merged into this one instead. --Jgpacker (talk) 11:41, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Well we can use name Forward & backward, left & right, but we have to merge texts anyway. Xxzme (talk) 12:57, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Xxzme, could you please write a bit about your proposed merge here? Which page into which, why, ... --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 12:30, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Content of Directional comes from Category:Way Direction Dependent. Right now we have Category:Forward & backward, left & right (map feature category) Category:Way Direction Dependent (something) - they should be merged IMO. Xxzme (talk) 12:57, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Mention that editors will still show direction for features that don't really have any

Mention that yes, some e.g., simple footpaths may not really have any direction. But editors have no way of not showing one anyway. (Yes, they just use the order of the nodes.)

Maybe mention how to explicitly tag "This way has no direction". (Which even can be picked up by editors too.)

Way always have direction, but it may be utterly unimportant. Showing direction may be helpful (or not), but it is not incorrect Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 09:32, 8 June 2020 (UTC)
