Thailand added to OSM Welcome Tool

Hi Thailand Community,

I wanted to let you know that I have added Thailand as a region to the useful OSM Welcome Tool, developed by OpenStreetMap Belgium and supported by the Local Chapters and Communities Working Group.

The tool enables community members to monitor new users and manually send them a personalized welcome message with useful tips in their preferred language. The ultimate goal is to encourage new mappers to become regular contributors, thereby strengthening the local mapping community.

I’ve set up an initial version of the personalized welcome message in English, along with a Thai translation. I welcome any suggestions for improvements:

  • @nitinatsangsit assisted in enhancing the Thai version.
  • The tools are not fully operational at the moment, so I was only able to manually email about a dozen recent new members.
