[Tagging] "Caution" on military pages

I’ve created a new template for this: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Template:Mapping_Military_Sites

This can be edited as we like and new translations can be added (by anyone – doesn’t have to be a specific user). We should perhaps add to all military=* pages.

This approach makes sense to me. For consistency, the suggested text could be added to an Ambox https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Template:Ambox (maybe caution type?) and set as a template which can then be added to military-related pages.


Possibly a "warning" box, similar to the Private Property one that Andrew mentions, & also on military=danger_area?

You can also put the message in multiple languages into a template similarly to https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Template:Mapping_Private_Property, which makes it easier to roll out any future changes to the text.

& thanks again!

Who does the translating? Is that up to "me", or is it done by somebody who thinks "This should also be in German"?
