Thanks for letting us know!
By the way, does anyone know, what will happen with the other discord channel? OpenStreetMap World It is now ~4 years old since it started in 2019 and has around 4000 mappers. Is that just a channel from the US local chapter? It would be interesting to have a guideline of their future and if there will be a post in that channel about this new forum. Does anyone know the maintainer? @Firefishy @Tordanik @bhousel

This server is using “Discourse”; OSM World is “Discord”. Despite sharing some letters in the name, they are totally different animals. A cynic might say that “Discord is IRC for people who don’t like IRC, and Discourse is web forums for people who don’t like forums”
The OSM World Discord site isn’t run by OSMF or OSM US (though OSM US run a Slack instance, which is similar to Discord in some ways). It’s still fairly active.
Thanks for the clarity, I dint know. They sound and look so similar
I’m one of the moderators of the OSM World Discord and would be happy to answer questions. It’s not affiliated with any OSM organization – it’s purely a community creation. It’s also a lot more informal than most of the other OSM channels.
me too. Any Qs fireaway. Or just the Discord and start chatting
