Honestly the people supporting this tag are annoying me more and more. 
They try to push that tag everywhere even when the tag without the 
prefix is used 10x more. The try to make the Wiki page sound like they 
are still present more often in the database. Put it on the MapFeatures 
Page. On shop/craft Wiki pages they try to push it as supplementary 
tags. Another guy does a mass edit for all social media tags and puts 
the contact: prefix in front of it (still not sure all facebook tags 
have been reverted).

Is there any solution to this? It's really no fun when I come back to 
edit a Wiki again and see that it happened again. Especially this 
replacing and not even trying to give the user a choice.

>>>   You are trying to enforce your opinion about how "wiki should look like". Instead of single view enforced by single user, users should compare multiple approaches and pick one for them. Do not remove valid information. Xxzme (talk) 10:39, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Picked out this Quote, there is a lot more to read. I completely agree 
with the view that MapFeatures really is just for major features or at 
least for tags where there is no disagreement. Something that's not 
clear should not be there. And especially a tag or whole template that's 
used far less than a equivalent tag should not be there.
