…and, besides, only a fraction of the OSM userbase reads the forum. That’s not to say there’s anything wrong with the forum - there isn’t - but the mailing lists, and the user diaries, are more popular.
Certainly there are a bunch of mappers active in Coventry. My only mapping in the area has been sorting out the elusive A452 through Kenilworth!
Both the forum and the Mailing List should be linked to on the main OSM page, just as the user diaries and blog are. If not for giving it more of a community appearance, it will encorage newcomers to read or ask, rather than stumbling blindly.
Anyway a late hi Nick,
I map south of Daventry, so not too far, although with more and more people joining OSM, ‘nearest editors’ are no longer 10-50 miles away but more like 0-10miles, so I imagine there’s many 10’s of active users closer to you.
