High-Quality Images in learnOSM

Nick mentioned that changing the image size will require a completely revised style sheet. Unless we have a solution here there will be no substantial progress. He also mentioned that a new release of iD is due in March which will require adaptations to the learnOSM guides on iD.

iD CSS Style Sheet

Nick suggested that we include items from the JOSM validator style sheet; Michael will investigate this and come up with a suggestion.

Training WG and Social Media

Russell managed to reactivate the Twitter account. We need a volunteer who is willing to operate it. We also need some brainstorming on what to tweet and how often. Suggestions are something like a "tip of the week/month" and at least a tweet per week. Laura pointed out that learnOSM is not an exclusive resource of HOT but should be targeted at the wider OSM audience. We should also consider tweets in other languages. She suggested to contact the Communications WG for some help how to get started with these topics.

Most visitors still seem to be interested in getting data, not some of the typical beginners' or advanced guides.
