Taginfo in a map feature template

Hi, I saw you added Taginfo-boxes in a Map Feature template. I like the idea, but it seems a bit out of place in the Map Features page because this same template is used there. Personally I think this kind of template shouldn't be both at the Map Features page and in a key's page, exactly because these pages have different purposes, but that's the way it is right now. --Jgpacker (talk) 15:21, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Ahhh, I didn't look close enough to realize that also fed into Map Features. Sorry! I was changing it to display taginfo on the Key:addr page, as it would be really useful there. Feel free to revert if that makes sense. If you think of a way to add it to the addr page but not map features, let me know.Neuhausr (talk) 15:47, 8 January 2015 (UTC)


Hi Brad/Neuhausr

I was looking at the wiki and saw that quite some time ago you added 'sufi' as a Muslim denomination, and wanted to ask your thinking.

Imo it isn't appropriate as a denomination, as that would imply a difference in creed between sufi and other groups - and as I understand it there isn't one, the difference being one of spiritual discipline, rather than creedal assents.

I've put a note on the Talk page: if you have a chance to share your views, here or there, it would be good to hear them.

(By the by, I'm also intrigued at your change Muslim -> Islamic: what was your reasoning?)

Happy mapping, and all good wishes,

Thanks for the comment. I'll reply regarding Sufism on the talk page there. Regarding Muslim -> Islamic, from what I understand Islam is applied to the religion, whereas Muslim is used for an adherent of the religion. --Neuhausr (talk) 02:45, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
