I have no particular opinion either way as to this tag, however on the
subject of voting, is the current rule that 51% is enough to get
approval? As time goes on I suggest we could raise the requirement.
Possibly one would need at least 20 votes for and also at least 80% in
favour. This would increase the need to consult and get a consensus.
Of course... it might mean that no one bothers to get tags voted on,
but that it also fine, it might result in it not getting rendered as
Is it also worth getting an indication as to whether the coders of
the rendering and routing engines actually intend to implement the
proposed feature. I realise the process is meant to be easy even if it
is messy, but a straight majority will allows tags to be adopted that
are very controversial.
Possibly we also allow some tags 'on probation' and then pull them out
if they don't get taken up within 6 months. On the subject of
probation, here are some details about current usage of smoothness.
This image shows who is tagging with this tag in Europe and where they
are doing it.
I total of 180 people have used the 'smoothness' tag in Europe and of
those 18 have used it more than 20 times. The tag has been used only
21 times in the Americas and has not been used elsewhere in the world.
The following values have been used within Europe (including some typos)
