12017-04-17 17:01:49 UTCMike Baggaley Hi, looking at Jolly Sailor Yard, motor_vehicle=unsuitable is not one of the standard access values - it might be better to use either no or discouraged, which are standard values, perhaps adding a note to say the road is unsuitable for motors. This will allow routing software to determine whether t...
22017-04-18 08:09:33 UTCPink Duck The sign says "unsuitable" explicitly. No would imply no access at all. Discouraged is perhaps an acceptable synonym, but again the sign says unsuitable, and the access is, well, unsuitable. So perhaps the 'standard' access values are outdated?
32017-04-18 15:06:30 UTCPink Duck For reference, there are 62 uses of "unsuitable" versus 5 for "discouraged" via TagInfo. Also, discouraged is a different meaning to unsuitable. If one owns a particularly slim motor vehicle then the gap could be made comfortably, so the judgement is per case not a general discou...
12016-12-30 22:48:11 UTCopottone Looking at NaPTAN database I only saw 9100BUCKNHM, not 9100BUCKNHM0 nor 9100BUCKNHM1. Is this some standard extension? Or perhaps old data?
22016-12-31 10:41:29 UTCPink Duck The former is the stop code area reference, see

The latter two look to be a zero-based suffix to describe the individual stop points.

Those tags are from around two years ago so the NaPTAN DB may have changed since.
32017-01-01 06:04:29 UTCopottone NaPTAN could have changed since, or this could be some nonstandard way to distinguish the different platforms. Anyway, I assume you don't object if I change both codes to 9100BUCKNHM.
42017-01-01 11:43:39 UTCPink Duck I would recommend checking with the current NaPTAN data first, but I don't mind.
12016-11-05 11:15:44 UTCPink Duck If Wendene is a secondary road from the A1074 then what's its B-Road ref?
12016-07-03 17:46:34 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
What is a Rambler's Gate (as in )? An image search turns up a stepover stile - or is it something else?
22016-07-03 19:15:56 UTCPink Duck It was a gate similar to that shown at

Which is where I likely got the name from, not spotting a suitable match on the OSM wiki barrier page. The phrase "squeeze gate"...
32016-08-21 19:54:53 UTCSomeoneElse Interesting - I've seen a couple of those, but was never really sure whether to map them as gates or stiles!
12016-02-19 21:21:07 UTCSK53 Did you not note the pub in Waltham when you did this survey
22016-02-20 09:53:58 UTCPink Duck I think I recall there being one at the junction but was distracted by driving and an incident with an old lady and postman at the time arguing.
32016-02-20 12:51:36 UTCPink Duck I've added The Royal Horseshoes, that appears to still be active. The Marquis of Granby nearby permanently closed according to
12015-12-27 18:51:24 UTCRobert Whittaker This looks rather like an automated edit. Was it discussed beforehand?

Have you changed any source:ref tags present at the same time as the ref=* keys were changed? Have you also changed ref=U* tags on other highways types (including tracks) to match the new tagging?
22015-12-27 18:58:58 UTCPink Duck Yes, an automated edit, but I was the user that set 99.5% of those tags originally. I left the source:ref tag as is, since the refs are unchanged. I messaged you about the U-refs, allowed a week for response, then matched them to the rest. It does state in the wiki that non-signed refs shouldn't use...
32015-12-27 19:35:48 UTCRobert Whittaker now has an official_ref=* and no ref=* tag, so surely the source:ref=* tag should be changed to source:official_ref=*.
42015-12-27 22:23:51 UTCPink Duck Yes, agreed - actioned in changeset 36206221.
12015-11-09 11:38:57 UTCPink Duck Does this path really stop short of connecting to the footway north of it? Is its name really "Walk to Genome Centre" or is that just a direction sign?
22015-11-09 11:58:47 UTCAnilT It does connect to footway in north.. there is no official name of the path but leads to Genome Centre
32015-11-09 18:04:07 UTCPink Duck Conversely it also leads to the Centrum building. I think it best to only have officially signed names for foot paths, such as those in Bowthorpe, e.g. "Red Ant Way".
12015-08-17 12:23:37 UTCRichard Hi,

Great to see the mapping of the Norwich cycle network.

"Orange Pedalway" etc. aren't really refs. Refs are short numeric/alphabetic references used on signs. "Orange Pedalway" is a name.

Many routers/renderers use 'shields' to show refs, and a ref with 15 characters ...
22015-08-17 17:08:01 UTCPink Duck They are more of a name than ref, agreed. I changed it since routing agents (e.g. OsmAnd) were saying "turn right on to Orange", which made no sense when spoken. The colours are already stored against the route relations. I shall probably remove the ref altogether and put the pedalway name...
32015-08-17 17:23:01 UTCRichard That's great - thank you!
42015-08-17 18:51:58 UTCPink Duck It would also be great if the local cycle network with HTML colour tag could be rendered in the Cycle Map render :)
12014-12-14 14:53:06 UTCrobert Are you sure about the naming here? OS Locator seems to disagre with you
22014-12-14 17:56:49 UTCPink Duck I suspect that was an editing mistake, since it is Royal Terrace from Royal Parade North to the top, with addressing suggesting that to the right of that it is Royal Plain.
