This suggests replacing highway=platform with public_transport=platform

 

Cheers - Phil

I went to check a platform tagged as

 

highway=platform

 

which is perfectly alright.

 

iD tells me that's deprecated and suggests to change it to:

 

public_transport=platform

bus=yes

 

Then upon uploading it tells me another "improvement" can be made:

 

highway=footway

 

So they are transposing highway=platform to highway=footway. Odd.

 

Anyway, complaining about it on a mailing list doesn't have any effect, complaining about it on github will get the issue closed in no time.

 

I also think a time out for iD makes sense, until they will start to listen to the community. Tough call, of course and they know it.

 

Oh well,

 

Back to JOSM for me.

 

Jo

Please stop trolling.
