As you can easily check I'm the only one community member in near neighborhood (in Gorzów Wielkopolski). I'm really not interested in putting that address data manually into database, especially when they could be imported. I would like to avoid doing it myself, mostly because it involve reading long and not so interesting import

Dear Sir or Madam,
You were deliberately ignoring my emails, when you are pointed to the messages, your answer is that you don't care about the question. Now you state I have some kind of a problem? Seriously?

You have somehow mastered processing and importing "iMPA" data. I thought the motivation behind it was improving quality of the map and community involvement. It seemed to me that with only a little bit more of an effort you might increase significantly the value of your imports. That's why I asked you the questions. I don't see why asking you on your forum might give a different answer than asking you here.

Nevertheless, now it looks to me that those imports are more about earning some kind of glory, bumping edit stats or maybe making yourself some kind of community guru. It explains why you won't go the extra mile. Anyway, they say you should not look a gift horse in the mouth, so it's nice your doing those imports. Good luck!
