Hello,

I've seen your stuff about history and it is great. Do you know any existing implementation, or do you have a plan to want one for actually do to the map what wikipedia histoy page do to an article: selecting a bbox and a time would show the map (data) what it was at that time and selecting two dates would show the difference?


I had an area where I believe I have already drawn something and it was empty, and I tried to figure out whether anyone deleted anything there. Selecting "history" resulted around a few thousand entries, most of them didn't even touch the area ("big" edits). Useless. I have tried to look around all the tool sites, history visualisers but didn't really find anything fitting the purpose.

Maybe you know better. Thanks. --grin 21:12, 11 July 2011 (BST)

BAG

Hoi,

zag dat je de BAG pagina begonnen bent. Inmiddels lijkt het erop dat BAG vrijgegeven is en kun je het ook gemakkelijk downloaden! Ik heb de pagina al wat geupdate, misschien dat je er ook nog even naar wilt kijken. BAG is al eens op de mailing list besproken zag ik, maar voor zover ik begreep was dat toen BAG nog niet was vrijgegeven. Dus misschien moet de discussie weer gestart worden?

Groetjes, Gijs 13:21, 11 April 2012 (BST)

Gijs, ik woon niet meer in NL en ben er ook niet meer zo bij betrokken. BAG-discussies op de mailinglist gaan steeds dezelfde kant op, ik raad je aan om met wat mensen bij elkaar te komen en een middagje te bomen over wat ermee te doen, dat gaat denkelijk vlotter. Martijn van Exel
Ok, bedankt voor je reactie! Gijs 23:56, 15 April 2012 (BST)

Please link images!

Hello Mvexel,

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the OSM-Wiki! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how: You can pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a Road sign, you add the following code:

[[Category:Road sign]]

This will make the File show up in the categories "Road sign".

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Category:Categories.


Please link pages!

Hello Mvexel,

MapRoulette Userbox

Hi Mvexel, i am a MapRoulette fan... so i created a wiki userbox in order to spread to word:

By adding {{User MapRoulette}} on your userpage, you will get:

Maproulette logo.jpg Mvexel enjoys solving MapRoulette challenges.

I also create an overpass query deck for MapRoulette friendly queries. Here they are : User:Binnette/OverpassQueries. Feel free to review them. Maybe we can include some in MapRoulette documentation? Maybe we can create a paeg like MapRoulette/OverpassQueries or so. Because it is quiet hard to learn how to make overpass queries for MapRoulette. I do not find a lot of documentation about it.

Have a nice day. BTW, thank you and the MapRoulette team for your excellent work. --Binnette (talk) 12:04, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi Binnette, awesome! I will include the Userbox in the next MapRoulette diary post / newsletter! And thanks for the Overpass collection, I am going to have a look and I would love to expand the Overpass part of the documentation! Actually there is a Github ticket for this that was just opened :) If you want I can give you access to contribute to the MapRoulette wiki on Github.

Adding events to the calendar

Hello,

Regarding the duplication of an event in [1]. The calendar templates hide events which are more than one to one and a half months in the future. This does not mean they are lost. Please add them below the heading "Other future events". I regularly move up the upcoming events about a month before they happen.
