Pub meeting

Hi Jon,

do you know if North_Surrey_Pub_Meet is still a regular meeting or was it only once in 2009? If it's still used, feel free to add a template:user group and make it appear on the user groups map.--!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 14:05, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi Mat, there isn't a regular, scheduled meet that takes place, but every now and again we just decide to have one. They may not get added to the wiki, that's all. There isn't an official Surrey user group or anything, so feel free to delete the page if it's no longer useful. Jonathan Bennett 20:47, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

highway=turning_circle and area=*

(Re [1].) area=* prominently mentions the relationship to highway=turning_circle. I simply thought it'd make sense for someone to know about it if, for example, they were looking to map a wide road area reminiscent of a turning circle. Mrwojo 02:28, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes, the area=* page is a bit self-contradictory, and it should be made clearer that it's a last-resort, hacky kind of tag. The next version of the OSM data model and API is likely to have an explicit Area type, so this tag will become redundant at that point anyway. I'm not inclined to put the link back in, but I'm happy if you want to get the opinion of others. Jonathan Bennett 09:26, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
