tourist_bus

In https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Key:access&diff=1617972&oldid=1617212 tourist_bus disappeared - I added it back based on edit comment as it seemed to not be intentional. Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 18:49, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Actually, it was intentional. I am currently writing Key:coach in which I explain this --Westnordost (talk) 19:33, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Your vote on "changing table" proposal

Hi,

you voted against the approval of https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/changing_table

Luckily you included a reason in your vote so I can investigate.

Re: "this proposal introduces also long list of ridiculously detailed tags " Are you really sure? For example: It splits up `diaper=bench` into `changing_table=yes` and `changing_table:features=bench`, `diaper=room` into `changing_table=yes` and `changing_table:location=dedicated_room`, `diaper:male` into `diaper=yes` and `changing_table:location=male_toilet` etc. It also makes possible to tag `changing_table:location=male_toilet;female_toilet` instead of `diaper:male=yes` and `diaper:female=yes`.

Just the subkeys `changing_table:features` and `changing_table:access` are new and fully optional to tag. The subkey `changing_table:location` replaces `diaper=room`, `diaper:male=yes` and `diaper:female=yes` and adds support of more scenarios like having a changing table in the wheelchair users' restroom/toilet.

`changing_table` supports more scenarios than `diaper` and adds systematic tagging that is easily understandable and logically good. It does the necessary abstraction of the `diaper` key to make tagging changing tables a lot easier while allowing complex tagging and supporting more scenarios.
