We discussed this back in January at the height of the Australian fires https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-au/2020-January/013527.html Consensus was that damaged areas shouldn't be mapped in OSM as they are only temporary, no matter how bad they look *now* :-( Thanks Graeme

I didn't get a single reply on this (see below), which I find surprising, especially as there are currently even larger fires that are more widespread all across the Western United States. I now ask if there are additional, appropriate polygons with tags I'm not familiar with regarding

Most large wildfires do not burn the canopy (the tallest trees) in forests with trees over 10 meters in height. The perimeter of the wildfire, shown commonly on public maps, does not determine which areas have been burned. Often there are large areas of vegetation along canyon bottoms and

One could always refer to the industry codes and subcodes that define product or service, for whatever jurisdiction. Along with industry trade publications - 'Chapel of Rest' seems to be a dated UK specific term ( similar to the US term 'undertaker') , whereas viewing / visitation would be

[Tagging] relation proposals

it's not obvious from reading the wiki where proposals for relations or modifications to existing relations should go. the long stalled proposal for circuits (race courses) is supposedly in the wrong place, but i have no idea what the right place is. i don't plan to try to revive that proposal,
