If you look at the actual comments, almost none of them are useful,
sometimes already answered (but still repeated by following voters). E.g.
- "It's not simple at all. Using amenity
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:amenity>=* for this makes it
impossible to combine it with such POIs. Also why amenity at all? For me it
looks like a "I didn't find anything better", I mean amenity
even stand on its owm."
with which POI should this be combined _on the same object_? I mean, this
is a tag for a reception desk, obviously it can be combined with other
amenities by putting it inside them, but you won't have many objects that
are at the same time a reception desk and don't know, toilets? An example
why this is a problem would help to understand the reservation.
- this comment pops up several times (as the only reason for opposition):
"The tag is related to tourism and not to amenity."
but it was already answered: this is nothing particular to tourism, it can
appear in all kinds of companies, administration contexts etc.
- "vague, half-baked" is not a critic that helps to improve or even shows
- "The proposal Sems to me too isolated, it should be embedded in an indoor
the voter wants a complete indoor tagging scheme and therefor opposes a tag
that might be one of the first steps towards this?
- " It should not be an amenity, the definition is vague, and in most cases
this should go under indoor mapping, which is quite a complex subject."
I didn't know "indoor mapping" was a different part of the project. You can
discuss the vagueness of the definition, but to me "A Reception Desk
provides a place where a visitor goes to gain information and or access to
the facility e.g. could be in a motel, office, campsite. It has been
suggested as an additional tag for a campsite .. but would be better as a
general tag as reception desks occur in many other places." isn't too vague.
- "This tag needs more time."
not helping in any way to find potential problems. No substantial critique.
the only useful point of critique is this one IMHO: " The reception is not
necessarily a 'desk'."
More than the proposal I think the reasoning for opposing the proposal
would have to be improved.
