User:Mvexel/New User Welcome Message

I use this message to contact new local mappers sometimes. Feel free to use and adapt this for your needs.


I noticed you just started editing in Utah and just wanted to say hi, and welcome to OSM! We have a [local Wasatch Front group]( that meets regularly, so if you want to get to know your fellow local mappers, have a look at the upcoming events. If not, that's totally fine too of course - everybody contributes to OSM in their own way, and mutual respect is an important value in the community.

If you have any questions about OSM in general or about the map in our area, feel free to contact me any time.

Oh, and if you are wondering how I knew about you - there's a few web based tools to monitor mapper activity in the area, if you're interested you can check them out for yourself: [WHODIDIT]( and the [Newest Active OSM Contributor Map](

Happy mapping,

Martijn van Exel
