Mapping as an area?

The current Description box suggest that mapping as an area is allowed, but the main text of the page only describes mapping as a node, and over 98% of features are mapped as nodes. Looking at the 222 which are mapped as closed ways (, almost all are under 2 meters in diameter, and most mapped as areas are from just a few places in Europe. It looks like mapping as a node should be recommended, so I would like to change the page to clarify this. --Jeisenbe (talk) 05:49, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

I totally agree with you Barnes38 (talk) 06:17, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

Double agree with changing the page to recommend mapping them as nodes. --Adamant1 (talk) 09:20, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
