automated edits

I saw, you did some automated edits. I would like to know, which tool you used. I want to do some automated edits (German fraternities). First review the to be changed objects in overpass turbo (find them, check if change would be correct), then use the tool for this area. I do know, that automated edits are strongly discouraged. --MeastroGlanz (talk) 13:36, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Overpass turbo, then into JOSM, is the method I usually use. Sometimes a perl script. Brycenesbitt (talk) 06:01, 2 September 2017 (UTC)


Hi Bryce, you seem to help us with categorization. Interested in joining the wikiteam? --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 18:34, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Toilet updates

Hi, sure. Let's move the toilets discussion on. I don't believe in or trust the "voting" practices here, so it's best to just discuss and make the edits. --achadwick (talk) 12:06, 7 August 2013 (UTC) (watching for the duration of this discussion, plus two weeks)

Since voting has already started, and since I want to move on to other efforts, I'd rather take out any element that threatens progress toward implementation. Tag toilets:disposal= does not need a boolean... if a toilet complex is of split type one can simply make two toilet outlines. I do object to the count addition, but only because it is so late in the process, most votes are already in, and I do not wish to start over, nor do I want to mess with engaging with folks. If you feel that level of granularity is necessary then by all means bring it up as a next step. toilets:wheelchar and wheelchair have just been voted on in the last month, they should have some time to run. While the common western case of "toilets:position=seated;urinal" is a bit awkward and wordy, the intent is clear and those nodes could be converted mechanically. My JOSM preset offers three options: "squat", "seated", "seated;urinal" which covers a huge fraction of cases. I am not personally interested in toilet counts, because what matters to me is how long the line is, and how clean it is. I only occupy one stall at a time in most cases. Also because of my gender I can generally only count the facilities in half of each toilet facility, and I am unwilling to ask a person of the opposite gender to do the counting for me.

Any objection to me adding

  • capacity:disabled={<count>|yes|no} — number of toilets specially adapted for use by disabled persons,
  • capacity:{seated|squat|urinal|*}={<count>|yes|no} — number by usage position (overlap with disabled or other types is fine if a stall is both),
  • capacity={<count>|yes|no} — ­number of toilets in total;

while retaining wheelchair={yes|no} for general wheelchair accessibility, but removing toilets:position=*? Toilet blocks in some parts of the world may have a mixture of types, and tagging using this style would avoid a semicolon value separator, which improves machine readability (a Good Thing). --achadwick (talk)


Does this need a disposal:x=<boolean> pattern too? Not sure it does, but I'm working under an assumption it will be the same for all toilets in a block and that if not it's OK to just tag the majority type that way. --achadwick (talk)

boat_sharing - can't send you mail?

Dear Brycenesbitt, sorry to contact you here, couldn't send you a mail ... thanks for voting for my boat_sharing proposal. But: what the heck is a zipboat??? Never heard this word... what do you want to say me with that? :-) Have a nice day!!! --Nounours77 (talk) 06:48, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Zipboat is a play on Zipcar, a prominent car sharing operator in the USA Brycenesbitt (talk)

Water_tap discussion

Bryce, thanks for your comment on my proposal, I've posted an answer. --Kotya (talk) 21:58, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

removed: prefix

Hi, I have changed quite a bit the : removed=* tag page you created in 2013. Do you still think the new version kept it's original meaning ? In particular, when you created it did you have in mind that all "removed" feature from real life should be moved to removed: namespace, or, like I suggested now, only feature with an high chance of beeing re-added from other sources ? Comments welcome on the talk page sletuffe (talk) 14:44, 26 November 2014 (UTC)



what's the point of your last change on page Tag:waterway=water_point?

It is a circular refference now.

About your edit

Can you look at ? I am confused what was intended meaning of your edit. Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 14:57, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
