What is the status of this project? And why has the website been down? Cheers! –Todrobbins (talk) 14:28, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

The machine that was hosting OHM died and finding a new home has been trying. Should be up shortly. --Muninn project (talk) 13:29, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

For the latest information, see the OHM mailing list Currently still down. --SomeoneElse (talk) 12:41, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Time/history/life cycle concepts

Was there any discussion regarding this? There is a pretty decent Comparison of life cycle concepts. The use of start_date and end_date that was suggested in the transcript ( ) seems to be the worst choice for a rich historic map. RicoZ (talk) 12:38, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

After some thinking I think that in most case the date namespace suffix is the way to go for most historic features. It is already routinely used with name=*, fully compatible with all existing tags and does not break backward compatibility of anything. A slight disadvantage is moderate data duplication and not easy to search for keys marked this way (a regexp is needed). RicoZ (talk) 11:52, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Going to try and fix some bad links in section 4 that have spious extra charcters at the end that are causing problems.

I've been tring to find links to OHM pages of documentation and support details after one account locked up for no clear reason and kept being sent via the links to OSM and OHM (update on migration failiures). The link given when I was locked out was only for the OSM support and so they naturaly couldn't help with a OHM based problem. If volountiers needed to fix port link fails or at least compile a list of them for others to work though let me know. {OHM - HGovanus/fgovanus} --Govanus (talk) 18:13, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Will this ever come back online? Is this a lost cause? Does anyone have a status report or a reboot timetable?

Old railways..

Way back in the mists of time, on a test server I traced out a good proportion of the Borders, Southern Scotland and Southern England, from a combination of background layers.

This project was later abandoned.

I propose to start adding these to OpenHistorical map if there is interest, as the interface is near identical to that I would have been using on the test server.

However, it wasn't clear if there was ever an agreed convention for making disused vs obliterated stations. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 17:01, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

I've added the Helston Branch in Cornwall, which if you adding much much older stuff I can remove. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 22:43, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Usage with Marble ?

Would be great to implement this in Marble and to be able to scroll through the wikipedia:Migration_Period or similar historical events. Are values planned which could enable this ? user:rtfm Rtfm (talk) 20:26, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

No acces to the OHM-server with JOSM

Hi, with JOSM 13367, I get no access to the OHM-Server. I'm not able to make an acces identifier. I tried to make a new one and logged in with my OHM user data (username and password), but it doesn't work. Can anyone help me? What am I doing wrong?

I had the same problem. I only managed to make it work through remote controll from the website. Try that. 7rst1 (talk) 21:33, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Hi 7rst1, oh interesting, thank you. I'll try it as soon as the queue at isn't full anymore ;) Lukas458 (talk) 20:53, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately, that also did not work for me :/ Hmm, I think I'll have to edit further with iD... Lukas458 (talk) 18:44, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
