Seeing as it's Charles Dicken's 200th Birthday soon,
I thought I should get around to mapping the Blue and other Coloured Plaques in my area of Portsmouth, especially as there's one at his birthplace.
However OSM seems a little vague in the best way to tag them, as there's nothing recommended in the wiki AFAIK.
TagInfo has some clues of in use methods
He's my planned tagging scheme:
name='name' - just the name of the person / organization the plaque is about eg 'Charles Dickens'
Optional Extended Detail:
description='full inscription text' - without operator information
operator='civic society name' | 'local council name' | whatever if known
start_date= date plaque was erected if known
It would be really good if the only existing map I know of - that uses OSM data - could be expanded to cover the whole of the UK:
(Or maybe a bit more information on how the 'blue-plaques.tsv' was created to power that map).

If at first you don't succeed,
then skydiving isn't for you.
