The OpenStreetMap Community Forum (community.openstreetmap.org) is a Discourse-based forum launched by the OSMF to replace the old forum.openstreetmap.org and help.openstreetmap.org sites. An introductory guide for new users has been posted.

Using via email

It is hoped that it might be fully usable via email.

Guide

You can reply to an email with just the text +1 and you will be recorded as hearting (❤️'ing) a post.

You can create a new topic in a category by emailing the correct *@community.openstreetmap.org address:

Category Email address
general general@community.openstreetmap.org

Problems & solutions

  • Discourse does not accept emails that are too short. You can add some text from a Lorem Ipsum generator to your message.
  • Discourse sometimes deletes quoted text.
