That sounds a great idea. Certainly our most difficult targets are
mappers who have mapped a small area they know well, then stopped and
not kept up their email address up-to-date ... or who simply don't
realise that their contributions are important to us.
Since many mapped around 2007/2008, you might also mention that our
on-line editor is much better now and that, at least in the UK, they can
also now trace local features using Bing ... great for Ramblers. I have
got several dormant mappers to get interested again like that.
