Tag:building=ruins

It was not change of meaning, it was documenting of meaning - building key was invented long time ago, not by me and it always was supposed to be used for original building purpose. If building=ruins is widely used for something else it may be useful to also describe this contradiction Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 05:14, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

  • To be clear - three things should be documented (1) usage to indicate ruins (2) conflict of this usage with other building values and generally accepted meaning of building key (3) meaning implied by how building=* was defined. I attempted to improve that page to cover both in neutral way Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 06:30, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
I understand. I was just concerned that mappers were unaware of the definition adjustment and were still using it to map actual ruins. Thanks for the reply. --Lakedistrict (talk) 09:30, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
