Why has this been rejected if there are more aprovals then disaprovals?

Since it has less than 15 votes, another vote request should have been sent to the mailing list, instead of declaring it rejected. --Driver2 16:04, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

use it :-)

at least I will use it - there is no sense in removing a highway=track and giving it a highway=incline - so we would loose information by this and I won't tag this way. I don't know why this proposal was rejected but this is the best way to define a ramp (for example leading to a bridge). The srtm-data are not good enough to get ramps to bridges and gps-data is often not good in giving a correct elevation - so I use this tag here :-); it would even be better, to define the direction with incline=up or incline=down (it's not a good idea to change the direction if the way is a oneway) and to give an incline_steep=10 (which should default to %) -- Schusch 23:18, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

First, you're wrong with the highway tag argument above, since it applies to nodes only according to the OSM Wiki description, no alteration of way attributes needed. Second, I find it more logical to add the incline information to a way. You did a good job with this proposal, even if it was rejected (at first try :-). So I actually use it, as many others do - mostly on way objects, see Tagwatch. It's a pity so many are not able/willing to read documentation and follow, since there are a lot of % signs in the values. Maybe I'll do a TagWash on the incline key soon and the english Wiki page would improve by adding some information from the German counterpart. --Hasienda 00:55, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
hi Hasienda - don't credit me for the proposal - it wasn't me, but I would support it in my variation :-). And I find the incline tag especially senseful on ways, that's why I won't use the highway tag; greetings -- Schusch 22:54, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
well, we have Key:incline (didn't find it when I commented here in december 2008) -- Schusch 07:24, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
