Hoi Philippe,

Ik wil je wel helpen met het vertalen van het protocol. Heb je enig contact met andere mappers? Hoe actief ben je?

Graag zou ik begin volgend jaar een mapping party houden in een belgische stad (bv Brussel?). Heb je interesse om mee te doen? Zo hebben we ook eens kennis gemaakt met elkaar.

I don't think my fluency in dutch is strong enough to translate the protocol page --PhilippeP 08:40, 25 October 2007 (BST)


Do you know how you can see who deleted a track?

I don't think you can see who deleted a track , when it's deleted , the history is also deleted ...--PhilippeP 16:08, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for you response. It's very annoying when suddenly a part is gone. --Lithion 21:59, 18 November 2007 (UTC)


I see you're busy mapping Brussels ... somewhere in the wiki (don't ask where) it is said that streetnames have to be capitalized exept for articles ... so it should be "Rue des ..." in place of "rue des ..." .... happy mapping --PhilippeP 21:59, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi Philippe, I'm ready to follow rules but I couldn't find it anywhere. Looking at some French cities, streetnames seems to be capitalized. However I think this could be the wrong approach, capitalizing could be done when maps are rendered, leaving the data proper (rue, avenue, boulevard, etc. aren't normally capitalized in French). I'll follow whatever is the consensus here. --Moyogo 16:02, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
btw I asked a couple of questions at Talk:Brussels. --Moyogo 16:17, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
Cool, found it Editing Standards and Conventions right under streetnames, and I guess it's still correct information. --Moyogo 17:38, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes that was it :)--PhilippeP 21:42, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
I guess I'll capitalize names. But I don't think the convention was well thought. If we capitalize only the first word, it's just formatting that can be done by renderers. If we capitalize every word that can be done too, but that would destroy relevant information. For example in French you can have "rue De Mérode" or "rue de Suisse" but if both are capitalized they end up being "Rue De Mérode" and "Rue De Suisse". --Moyogo 17:05, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
Like I said , articles and conjonctions (wich are not present in English-or Dutch- streets because the 'street' goes at the end of the name) doesn't need to be capitalized , just common words and names so "rue de Suisse" would be "Rue de Suisse" and not "Rue De Suisse" ...--PhilippeP 11:42, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Mapping party Mechelen


Pour se rencontrer il me semblait une bonne idée d'organiser un petit 'mapping party' à Malines. Les préparations sont discuté ici: Talk:WikiProject Belgium/Activities. C'est donc prévu pour le 9 février et peut-être on continuera le 10. Le samedi on pourra se rassembler au café/restaurant Keizer Karel où il y une petite salle avec accès à l'internet, des boissons et une petite restauration. Pour le dimanche il faudrait encore trouver autre chose. Eventuellement on fera sans internet dans un café non-fumeurs n'importe où.

Qu'est-ce que vous en pensez? Voudriez/pourriez-vous nous rejoindre? Inscrivez-vous dans ce cas au WikiProject Belgium/Activities. Bien sûr vous pouvez également venir à l'improviste, mais il serait intéressant de savoir plus ou moins avec combien on sera. --Polyglot 23:19, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

A pity you can't come. Hope to see you next time. Maybe at FOSDEM? Polyglot 14:09, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
I'll add your name on the Activities page --Polyglot 14:19, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Organiser une mapping party?

Bonjour, J'habite Saint-Sauveur, à côté de Renaix. J'aime beaucoup OSM et j'ai pu observer qu'une ville aussi importante que tournai n'a pas encore eu droit au passage des osmers. Si vous êtes motivé, nous pourrions organiser cela dans les mois à venir... A bientôt, j'espère.
