I don’t have a short answer for this, but my feeling is that it’s about initial training as much about providing a buffer for people who are just curious and want to click around a bit. Anything that redirects TV audiences to such an initial buffer is likely a win. Optimally, people who contribute well are then guided to further projects — for example as part of validator feedback.

While the mailing list may work for the core community, there is likely a larger number of one-time mappers who may be willing to help out again when they’re needed, but currently they have no means of finding out.

Yes, that sounds great. The existing HOT newsletter could be a low-effort means of starting something like this, e.g. by adding a paragraph on current initiatives to every email. (Tyler might likely appreciate if someone who’s plugged into community discourse could provide such paragraphs on short notice.)

I love how quickly this came to be! Much impressed.


Looking forward to an exciting 2017,

Hi,

Thanks to the enormous efforts of the team from *OneMap Myanmar* with
*FAUNA & FLORA International*, LearnOSM is now available in Myanmar
(Burmese). My sincere thanks go to the team responsible for this work.


If you wish to link to this language of the site, the links are;

Main link to site in Myanmar = http://learnosm.org/my/

iD section = http://learnosm.org/my/beginner/id-editor/

JOSM sections = http://learnosm.org/my/josm/

etc..

or you can, as usual, begin in any language and then switch using the
switcher at the top of the screen.

Thanks again for such an enormous contribution.


Nick
