Object type

I would like have the object type on which tags are deprecated. It's the case for highway=ford on nodes only. My goal is to have this information parsable and usable on Osmose QA, currently reporting all highway=ford as deprecated regardless of object type. Frodrigo (talk) 21:00, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Recent edit of the template

Hi, the recent edit is titled "Urge the automated editors to read the AE CoC guidelines, but don't make them absolute rules".

But to me it now sounds more like that the automated edits are recommended. I liked the older version more. What is your opinion?

It is done to remove information duplication between this short template and the real AE code. Whether AE are recommended or not and fine details should be defined in the code, not in this short template. Maybe we can make it "more directive" in order to make users read the AE CoC, what do you say ? --Gileri (talk) 10:19, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
What do you propose exactly?
Just to clarify. This text "Please read the Automated Edits code of conduct before making automated edits." seems to me that you invite user to make automated edits (and just read AE CoC before). The previous version clearly warned that automated edits are not recommended. Chrabros (talk) 10:29, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
We had problems with automated edits of deprecated tags in the past. The Code is not optional and this should be clearly stated. Also there should be no invitation to change deprecated tags automatically. Since no better text came up here until now I put the old text in without the revert warning. I also used (semi-)automatically instead the longer old one.--Jojo4u (talk) 10:51, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
