John and all,


This is probably more of a human resource issue than technical, although technical improvements can make it easier on us. I think it comes down to the coordinators, unfortunately no matter how much we improve things like the Tasking Manager, we will still need dedicated coordinators to keep up the interest and make clear asks to the community. In the cases where we do have people ‘championing’ projects, they typically are more thoroughly completed (and validated).  I would also suggest that those interested in this topic to jump in on the next Activation Working Group meeting, we still have work to do to help define and guide a mapping project/activation from start to finish.


Thanks for pushing us to do better, I’m sure we can;

I switched from doing villages to an overview project and then came back to the villages.  The tiles around the villages are often the first to be done.  The ones in the centre where the buildings are are the last to be done.  Buildings don't seem to be popular.  Many tiles haven't been touched in two months.

Looking at the stats it might say that the village is 50% done, reality is probably 15-25% of the objects to be mapped are done,  those centre tiles are dense with buildings.

At what point on a project do we say we're spread too thin?  or do we?

What can we do to get more projects finished with the resources we have available?
