Re. Greater London Boundary

Hi. I saw your question on Wikipedia regarding boundaries - the maps on Wikipedia are probably not from an OSM-safe source, and took advantage of our understanding at the time of United States copyright laws, which allowed various sorts of things that wouldn't be allowed in the UK (like those). In any case, the source maps generally didn't show borders precisely enough to be of use to us. To reproduce these borders with clean licensing, I am going around London looking at street signs, parking meters and bins. Morwen 17:00, 7 September 2007 (BST)

Yeah thanks for the info. It's going to be fairly laborious process it seems! --TimSC 18:41, 19 October 2007 (BST)

Medway Mapping Party

User:Gregoryw Mentioned on the mailing list that you may work over that way, We could not be sure though. If you do, do you know anywhere we could meet up/be based for the mapping party? I tried adding you on MSN incase that doesn't work feel free to email me at pray4mojomonkey [at] hotmail.com (replacing at with @ etc...)

Thanks --pray4mojo 18:39, 23 October 2007 (BST)

RE: Abstention on Wreck proposal

Tim, I felt it would be improper to add my note to the comment section after voting had opened, hence my abstention vote with comment attached. I'm not familiar with the rules about voting, but I don't think its proper to adjust my vote so that a proposal lives or dies. If the system is broken fix the system. Reluctantly, my vote stands, although you could always try influencing me with a few beers ;) 80n 19:31, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair enough, I will see who else I can get to vote on it. --TimSC 07:56, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Outer london mapping parties

Sevenoaks Mapping Party, Bromley and Sidcup Mapping Party, Dartford Mapping Party... quite a mini-marathon you're organising. Good work! I listed those on here. Hopefully some of the London gang will head down that way. Weekends are busy for me unfortunately, but I may be able to head over for the Dartford one. -- Harry Wood 18:02, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, the master plan is to focus on west Kent and south east London to make these areas join nicely. The seveonoaks party was really good. The weather helped. :) --TimSC 21:32, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

this edit. Did you mean to change Dartford event to July? -- Harry Wood 13:00, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I have just been too busy until now! --TimSC 18:31, 16 July 2009 (UTC)


Tag sport=diving

Some time ago you contributed to tag:sport=diving. Unfortunately, the discussion on how to tag dive spots ceased without a real outcome. I think it's a pity, that there is no real common practice on how to tag dive spots, dive shops, air-fill stations etc. as such things will only make their way to the map tagged in common way.

To move things forward for a real proposal, I tried to summarize the main points for a final discussion on the page, asking for comments.

As you once contributed a comment or proposed some issues, you might be interested to have a look and help tighten everything up for a proposal.

P.S.: as I'm quite new to proposals and the voting process, I appreciate any kind of support.
