I've noted my approval by using this tagging on some USFS ranger stations. :)

However I thought I'd formally vote but I don't see a voting area on that
Wiki page and I've not voted before so I'm a bit unsure how that is
supposed to work.

Should there be a voting section at the bottom of the page? Seems like
some other proposed pages have that. . .

Once that is added, is the procedure any more involved that just editing
the Wiki page to add a line indicating one's opinion?
