hi Adavidson,
to boundary:protected_area:

Thanks for giving the link to the CAPAD.
> "In Australia there is no general relationship between the title given to a protected area and its IUCN category."
Yes, may be (but on WDPA I find IUCN categories ... and II for "National Park" is ok). But titles doesn't greatly matter. Tagging should be primarily based on the IUCN category because titles can be misleading. First search an IUCN category: the Tagging-scheme is "based" on the IUCN categories from the WDPA. "Generally" the given fits for protect classes.
If there is no IUCN-code, don't focus only to the title, but check primarily with your administration or NGO's the intentions, objects and instruments of protection, if they accord to the protected_area-classification descriptions. The title itself is sometimes misleading - because of politics or cultural characteristics or ignorance.

btw. your note is placed in the wrong column.
best, --Typoshrub (talk) 12:03, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Batch setting proposals to abandoned and undefined status

Please do not go around and set a lot of proposals for formal criteria to undefined status, particularly not for a lack of activity on the proposal if the tags are already used. There is no time limit for proposals in draft state btw., it seems very strange you insist on setting a proposal again to abandoned after the author has already reverted your first edit to do so (i.e. declared the proposal as not abandoned). --Dieterdreist (talk) 22:14, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for removing a section from a voting page after voting had started.

The section you removed was no duplicate of the 'section above'. The 'section above' was to vote on having a default vale of intermittent=yes While the section you removed was to vote on having mappers manually add intermittent=yes.

Thanks muchly ... the page will be reset and voting will have to start again...

No changes should be made to a page once voting commences. None. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposal_process#Voting 4th dot point.
