Is there something you are missing from or find objectionable in Sidewalks and footways (with knobs on)? You are welcome to create a new Map Paint Style of course, but it doesn't seem to do much different, nor does it explain what makes it different. I had to fork the original Map Paint Style by cobra because they seem to have stopped contributing to OSM. --JeroenHoek (talk) 11:43, 28 June 2021 (UTC)

Hi, actually I hadn't seen your SidewalksAndFootways style before, indeed I just checked and it looks like you only published it 5 months ago. I picked out my JOSM Styles earlier than this so at the time your one wasn't available so I'd been using the Sidewalks one we both forked, I found it lacking so made some fixes which I just publish now, all without seeing your fork. I'll try it out now and see how it works. --Aharvey (talk) 13:14, 28 June 2021 (UTC)
Looks like I just wasted my time with SidewalksPlus since you've pretty much fixed all it's flaws. It replaces the OpenSidewalks + SidewalksPlus style combo. I've noticed a few discrepancies which I'll try to report in more detail. --Aharvey (talk) 13:18, 28 June 2021 (UTC)
Feel free to let me know of any flaws in the Sidewalks and footways (with knobs on) style. --JeroenHoek (talk) 13:35, 28 June 2021 (UTC)
@JeroenHoek: The only thing I found lacking was the OpenSidewalks JOSM style puts a red circle where a highway=footway + footway=crossing node intersects a road where the node isn't tagged highway=crossing. This is helpful as it helps users spot errors where they need to set the tag on the node so the road knows there is a crossing just by looking at tags on its way nodes. Secondly I prefer the blue style for crossings OpenSidewalks uses rather than the darker green from your style, just because blue is much clearer to distinguish from the existing sidewalk ways. --Aharvey (talk) 09:39, 10 August 2021 (UTC)

@Mateusz Konieczny: I've added the license now, wikimedia does not make it easy to work out how to do so. --Aharvey (talk) 01:47, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
