Undiscussed mechanical edits of POI (website=* to contact:facebook=*)

FYI,

https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/99560461 and others from the same user.

There are valid reasons to use FB pages as URL (for many businesses this is their only "webpage" and for broadest compatibility it's OK to just use it as website=*).
If anything, there was no discussion here. (For Poland as well - which I reverted).

Sorry no.
Facebook is not an Webpage of the foreign institution. Facebook is a website of the Facebook Inc.
If an institution have only a Facebook-site - than this object have no website.

Edit: I would hope that in the future of direct changesets being canceled, you will contact the creators first an waits to an answer.

I agree it is pointless, because if there is no other website, a facebook url is just as good in "website" as it is in "contact:facebook" (as long as you can see from the URL that it is on a facebook domain, there is nothing gained).

You know, that this is a currently worldwide running maproulette challenge?

For example Poland:
https://maproulette.org/browse/challenges/16438
Mexiko:
https://maproulette.org/browse/challenges/16995
...

This change includes just too much edits at once by an JOSM user.
So it would follow SafetyIng. Just ask the user first and let him improve his errors.


OSM Profis sollten Anfänger mehr ermuntern und mehr unterstützen, damit die Gemeinschaft wächst und vielfältiger wird. Momentan vergrault man immer noch gerne.
