Pub crawl diagram

Just happened upon this Mapping pub crawl old wiki page. Awesome diagram! :-)

start_date/end_date or alternatives for historical mapping

Hi, for me it would appear that some of the alternative solutions would be preferable because data mapped with end_date would cause problems if mixed with data from the main database. Is there some mailing list or forum where you would discuss this? RicoZ (talk) 12:28, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes the OSM-Historic mailing list Chippy (talk)

OSM training for Geocachers

Hi Tim, I'm Dan (Bazonka) - we've met a couple of times at Leeds wikimeets etc.
I'm a keen geocacher, and on a recent caching Facebook group, someone was moaning about maps not having footpaths on. Since these were OSM maps, I pointed out that they could be edited by anyone, but then someone else commented that they wouldn't dare to edit anything unless they were 100% sure they were right... these are of course people who walk footpaths with a GPS in their hand! There's potentially an untapped source of editors there.
So it got me thinking. Maybe I could host a caching event which is essentially an introductory OSM training session. I've done a bit of OSM editing myself, and I'm happy to help, but I'm certainly not expert or confident enough to actually give the training. Do you think you'd be able to help with this please, or could you suggest someone else that I could approach?
These are just my first thoughts, so I haven't got a date or venue yet, but I guess probably a weekend and maybe in Manchester.
What do you think?
Cheers, Dan -- Bazonka (talk) 19:48, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi yes, I think we are due a mapping workshop soon. Would ideally be in Leeds, as some others there have recently expressed an interest in doing so. Feel free to email or use the osm message system as well, there is also an OSM-GB mailing list. OSM folks don't really use wikis to communicate with each other though :-) --Chippy (talk) 13:45, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
