How do I request a territory? 13 days ago
Expression of interest: larger Archanta territories about 1 month ago

AR067 has now been allocated.

Also, unrelated specifically to this, mapping from AN119 and AN124 is moving to North Archanta.

My first international airport about 2 months ago

The runways are 4.8km long. At sea level. Why on earth would you want them longer? They are too long as is.

In the real-world they'd be the 10th longest runways in the world. And at sea level.

"Commercial airports should always have contingency measures for heavy military aircraft" ?!

Expression of interest: larger Archanta territories about 2 months ago

Let's not get away on a tangent. There's an overarching desire to not specifically have real word analogues.

... But this is just about those four territories.

That's certainly what I've been working toward, and have just made it more explicit on the territory map.

Phoenix-New Master Plan about 2 months ago

As if Histor doesn't know, but declaring an interest in the Guntrum tangent. Focus on on one problem at a time.

If you look at detail at Guntrum you'll see an urban design with some modern filtered permeability concerns at the core.

Phoenix-New Master Plan about 2 months ago

Who are the recent editors, and have you sent them a pointer to this discussion? L

Phoenix - Project cancelled about 2 months ago

I think you should coordinate to create:

  • Map identifying areas and editors who have edited locally within the last few months
  • Map identifying areas to: keep, rework, replace (note replace doesn't mean completely razing the map - naming and ways can still be reused)

This should be pasted to a new user diaries thread, making sure to notify all the recent users.

  • A new plan can then be developed

Or, just leave it be.

Phoenix - Project cancelled about 2 months ago

Common sense:

  1. Don't do anything which results in extra work for the admins
  2. Respect Blue country etiquette
  3. Fully include users without wiki access - it is a blue territory after all
  4. Discuss before action; do not rush
  5. Know the existing OGF rules & guidelines, respect them

I think the original mapping should be restored, a plan agreed before any further changes.

I will not be appointing a coordinator, this is an unofficial project.

Absolutely beyond parody. You're all so on fire about deleting stuff, before any agreement being reached, that new content is also being deleted.

You all need to read and really understand this: https://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/OGF:Blue_country_etiquette

At the very least I would expect users to take a sampling of the ways they are editing/deleting and check the history of them. If they are recent then you should be reaching out to the user, not just deleting.

As a blue territory most editors in Mecyna will not have a wiki account, and will not be getting one to just take part in this. So coordination should be led on the User Diaries.

Which is of course not what you said. Asking on a user diary post (which I only read today) if you might need to talk to the admins is completely different to "the opinion of the regional admin was requested, but no response was obtained in time".

And you seem utterly oblivious to the fact you are talking to the actual person right now. And doing a good job of annoying them.

Phoenix - Project cancelled about 2 months ago

I do not appreciate blatant lies: "Also (without offending) the opinion of the regional admin was requested, but no response was obtained in time"

Phoenix - Project cancelled about 2 months ago

It is disappointing that so far the editing has largely been deletion, before leaving any room for consensus to be reached. Items have been deleted which could have certainly been moved, resized or incorporated.

Plan, before the demolition.

And https://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/OGF:Blue_country_etiquette is crucial to any sort of project in free to edit territories.

Histor style: overhaul based on standard style? 2 months ago

Pretty much; however it's not simple and it has a load of pre-requisites.

These are the default rules: https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto

Brig: open for embassies! 3 months ago

It's looking good!

200+ conflicts on upload, how to solve them all and not one-by-one ? 3 months ago

The "merge down" option in the layers window is good for that too. Assuming it's all new data. L

200+ conflicts on upload, how to solve them all and not one-by-one ? 3 months ago

What is the reason for the conflicts? The two most common are:

  • You have edited / deleted data outside the area you have downloaded (deleted nodes are used by other ways/relations that JOSM doesn't know about until you attempt to upload)
  • Somebody else has changed the same objects

If it is the first then zoom to the area of the conflicted items and make sure you download it. You can multi select items in the conflict list, right click and then resolve to my or their versions.

If it is somebody else's valid, well placed, edits then it would be bad practice to blindly resolve to your own.

Road naming systems - real world examples 3 months ago

It's only the San Francisco example which is really showing logic though?

How to make these islands look realistic 3 months ago

But that really doesn't matter - the delta / wetlands there is a good basis for the country boundary, and that's an ideal thing for neighbouring owners to work together on.

You of course can still have a delta where you have it, but it's going to naturally fed by the mountains to the west of it.
