Hi, User:Bruce89 has sugessted to change the value for the Proposed_features/Pedestrianised_road from pedistrian to precint. So I think its the best to start a new voting period. Can you please go to that page and vote again? Sven Anders 11:38, 20 September 2006 (BST)

Nifty graphical design

Dear Ben,

That poster on the Rutland Mapping party page is wonderful! Good work. Could you make the source file available? (Is it an .xcf by chance?) Rw 13:47, 13 October 2006 (BST)

Its pdf. Its 25 meg when .rar'ed...cause it was made for A2 prints. Where shall i put it? Ben. 14:39, 13 October 2006 (BST)

The Image:Image Star Alpha.png is also very pretty. I assumed it had been stolen from wikipedia or somewhere, until I noticed it has a map design on its 3D surface! Did you use 3Dstudio for that? Some nifty graphical design going on there! -- Harry Wood 16:42, 17 April 2007 (BST)

  • Thanks. Yep I made them in max/PS. I based them on the image that was used before wich I think was taken from wikipedia. Ben. 00:23, 24 April 2007 (BST)

Wiki trick

  • Did you want to get rid of the 'contents' box from your user page? You can do this by sticking __NOTOC__ somewhere on the page. It's a sneaky "magic word" -- Harry Wood 11:47, 28 March 2007 (BST)
  • Thanks!, thats exactly what I wanted to do. Ben. 14:57, 28 March 2007 (BST)


Thanks for removing my template, what was wrong with it? Bruce89 20:39, 5 August 2007 (BST)

  • I didn't remove the template, I removed the link. I posted to the mailing list preir to doing it, and explained it to you on IRC why. There was nothing wrong with it as a template, but I don't think it belongs on the main page. I do think credit should be given to people who have done majour things for OSM though, but I don't understand why thanks must be given in such a way. Ben 02:11, 6 August 2007 (BST)

historic = wreck

You previously commented on the historic = wreck and I wondered if you would be interested in voting on it? Regards,--TimSC 20:10, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

  • I haven't been following it closely and/or read it all, but I have voted with a brief comment anyway... Thanks for informing me. Ben 23:15, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
