Just linking a related issue: Relations/Relations are not Categories -- Jajcuś 17:14, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
→ I agree with Jajcus, The knife (talk) 13:04, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

I also agree, there is no need for a relation, a common tag is sufficient, e.g. network=*--Dieterdreist (talk) 13:28, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
I agree too --Danstowell (talk) 16:44, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

☑Y I marked it as depreciated, just as a reminder as many pages link here. However, there are some cycling network relations in Belgium and the Netherlands. U30303020 (talk) 22:01, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

I made the distinction between categories and networks more clear, but more information would be needed. The deprecation of this tag should only be done after consulting the communities that use it and have a proper discussion with them. A67-A67 (talk) 10:45, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
I dislike that change, because currently this is named proposaled. I admit that I did the first change, but my intentions where going towards preventing that the people simply used this mapping style without registering that this is a proposal. (As this is a different topic, I started a new section below) U30303020 (talk) 17:28, 22 August 2018 (UTC)


If there is a rationale use of this, than it must contain render rules. ref=* does not have enough information to make a set of render rules work. I am not sure if a network relation is the way to go, but rather a network=* tag with a logical value that refere to a table of render rules. --Skippern 11:47, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Hiking, cycling, ...

How about hiking or cycling network who hasn't relations of type route ?

Proposal page or Tag documentation?

Is that a real proposal? Then we should archive that and create a new tag documentation page linking to this?

If it is not a proposal, we should move it to its proper name. I am open for a discussion. U30303020 (talk) 17:28, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Ok. I created a new page called Relation:network, describing the current mapping practices. I will now archive this proposal. --U30303020 (talk) 22:43, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
