Hi, can we create icons that are numbered, like an icon "1", and "2", etc.? This would be helpful for maps with multiple points on them.

Yes, the "marker-symbol" property accepts numbers between 1 and 99. e.x.: "marker-symbol": "81",

Hey @Mliu92, I appreciate the addition of the icons. I tried to do something similar a few weeks ago. The problem I ran into is that the Maki icons on Commons are a newer set version than what we're using on Wikimedia maps. Some of the icons have changed in the latest version (see the icon for "bank" as an example) and some the labels have changed, like "london-underground". That's why some icons are missing. I'm going to revert your contribution for now since while it's a good idea, it doesn't match the current state of things and might cause confusion to folks trying to use the icons. If the team responsible for maps updates the icons to use the latest version (task T145475) then I'll restore your additions.

Thanks - I do not mind the reversion; I did it because I was having trouble jumping back and forth between the map view and the table view (with the icon names). Are the older Maki icon files that are being used on Wikimedia maps available for download? We could put them on Commons under a subcategory, like :c:Category:Modified Maki icons (or a similar subcategory, like "Superseded Maki icons") and then use the modified/older icons in the table. Cheers.

I see you found them before I did. Great! Thank you and let me know if you need any help.
