[Talk-scotland] New user renaming highway=cycleway with NCN references

Hi all,

I spotted in Edinburgh first, and across the central belt of Scotland, that
a relatively new user, tintin2873 [1], has been renaming a lot of the ways
that make up the national cycle network to include the NCN reference
number. e.g. "Middle Meadow Walk" has been changed to "Middle Meadow Walk
(NCN1)" [2]. Where there was no name, they seem to have just called the
path by the NCN reference. The NCN route information is already in OSM via
relations, and displayed via the cycle map layer.

I have not contacted the user, as not quite sure how best to word an email.

There are also a large number of ways that should probably have the name
reverted, as they seem to have done most of NCN1, 75, 754, and possibly

Suggestions, or actions, of how to best resolve this issue appreciated.

regards, Donald
