Hello all new to editing.

The religion drop down on potlatch 2 does not offer an appropriate tag for masons. I think Hermetic is how they describe themselves, could this be added or shall I just leave it unset>

I am not a Mason, so this may be an imperfect understanding of the situation, but I believe most Masonic Orders do not consider themselves to be religious organisations, even though belief in a Supreme Being is a requirement of entry. They admit people of all faiths, and as such shouldn't be tagged with religion=*.

It seems every time I find a Masonic Lodge (dedicated building) I can't remember how I tagged them previously. I've just searched and found two discussions I had on IRC and also this question. And, since this question was first asked and I last searched, there is now the option of club=freemasonry on the wiki (which as I'm mapping the building as an area I'll add as well as a building tag). As I type there are no uses of club=freemasonry in the UK and only 2 in the whole database (according to Taginfo), however I'm about to use it on the Masonic Lodge I'm currently mapping and the 2 I can remember mapping previously.
