Hi everyone! Thank you so so much for volunteering for the OSMF Membership Drive! I have drafted the Plan[1] in case you want to read it in advance, but don’t worry if you cannot as we will discuss it later in the meetup. So excited to see you!

Hi @arnalielsewhere,

Is there any way to translate pubmat to Portuguese (Brazil)? Where can I access them?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

I have used this campaign in Colombia to contact each of the possible members directly (not via groups, nor social networks posts), and I think it has had a good effect.

First, I check the list of current mappers in Colombia from ResultMaps: OSMstats - Statistics of the free wiki world map

Then, for each one I check the HDYC profile to verify if the mapper has more that 42 days in the last 365:

Finally, I contact the user by OSM messaging, Telegram or other ways, and tell him/her about the campaign, by sharing the images and the blog. I feel that Colombia has increased a lot its number of members, because many of them have confirmed me they had done the process.


this is awesome!! Thank you, Andres!!! We hope to provide stats of sign up’s per country with the help of Membership WG soon :slight_smile:


Translations of pubmat all done as well, both in PT and PT-BR.
